Rapper Royce Da 5’9″ turned his album release concert on Tuesday into one big party – by treating fans to tequila shots throughout his set.

The hip-hop star’s fifth solo disc, Success Is Certain, hit music retailers this week and he marked the occasion by performing at New York hotspot S.O.B.s, where he was joined by his Slaughterhouse bandmates Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz, as well as special guests Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monche and Jean Grae.

Royce played a mix of solo songs and collaborative tracks from his Bad Meets Evil projects with Eminem and decided to share his liquor rider with fans, pouring them shots of high quality Patron Silver Tequila throughout the gig.

And the generous rapper didn’t just pop open one bottle – he had emptied five by the end of the show, while his entourage onstage, including producer DJ Premier, sipped on Jack Daniel’s whiskey and Grey Goose vodka.
