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.
