Bad Meets Evil (Royce Da 5'9" & Eminem) Reunite!
The time has come!
Bad Meets Evil- a Hip-Hop duo from Detroit, Michigan, that consists of rappers Royce da 5'9" [Bad] and Eminem [Evil] and was created back in 1998. It all started when the two Motor City rap titans began recording numerous well received underground songs including the popular song "Renegade"-which would later be used on Jay-Z's The Blueprint album with Royce's verses replaced by Jay-Z. Many of the Bad Meets Evil songs were freestyles agains each other, including a 12-minute long battle. They are best known for collaborating on a self-titled song that appeared on Eminem's major-label debut album The Slim Shady LP and their association with Dr. Dre and his label Aftermath Entertainment. Bad Meets Evil split up in the early 2000s, after Royce fell out with Eminem's group, D12 and Dr. Dre.
A few months ago in the winter of 2010, songs "Echo" and "Living Proof" were leaked onto the Internet out of nowhere, causing huge speculation among their fans. Not long after Royce da 5'9" stated that he reached out to Eminem, for his single "Writer's Block", and they started working on a project together. On April 25, 2011, an upcoming Bad Meets Evil project was announced. And on May 2nd, Eminem announced the title.
Finaly, as the two rappers are back together again, Hell: The Sequel (debut EP) is scheduled for release on June 14, 2011.
"Fast Lane" was released on May 3, 2011 as the lead single from Hell: The Sequel through digital distribution. It was produced by Supa Dups and Eminem.
Here's the complete list of all the songs on the upcoming EP.
