The Slim Shady and his Bad Meets Evil partner Royce join forces in an inspirational song which features Bruno Mars on the chorus.
After rapping about "syrup, painkillers, cigarettes, weed, Hennessey, vodka," with Mike Epps in "I'm on Everything", Eminem and Royce da 5'9" bring in Bruno Mars for a fighter union. The Bad Meets Evil rappers' verses fill in the warm, fuzzy song, while Bruno's buoyant vocals is featured on the hook.
"By the time you hear this I will have already spiraled up/ I would never do nothing to let you cowards f*** my world up/ If I was you, I would duck, or get struck like lightening," the Slim Shady kicks in his rhymes. Royce later fires up, recalling old days when he was an underdog, "I remember when T-Pain ain't wanna work with me/ My car starts itself, parks itself and Auto-Tunes."
The "Just the Way You Are" hitmaker sums it up on the chorus by crooning "This one's for you and me, living out our dreams/ We're all right where we should be/ Lift my arms out wide I open my eyes/ And now all I wanna see is a sky full of lighters, a sky full of lighters."
Produced by Eminem, the Smeezingtons and Battle Roy, the song is lifted from Bad Meets Evil's upcoming mini album "Hell: The Sequel". Beside Mike Epps and Bruno Mars, the 9-song EP also lines up Slaughterhouse in "Loud Noises". The album is due in the United States on June 14 via Shady/Interscope Records.
