Artist of the Week: Bad Meets Evil


Artist of the Week: Bad Meets Evil


Eminem and his Bad Meets Evil partner Royce have enjoyed their reunion atop Billboard Hot 200 with 'Hell: The Sequel'.

While some of the music groups fell out in the past few months, Bad Meets Evil were quite the opposite. They reconciled following the death of their mutual friend and fellow rapper Proof in 2006, and made their reconnection stronger the following years by working on projects together.

Finally, a decade after they last recorded together under the moniker Bad Meets Evil, members Eminem and Royce da 5'9 revived the duo project with "Hell: The Sequel". Led by spit-fire-lyrics single "Fast Lane", the reunion album is a mix of hard, raw, raunchy, yet funny records.

For instance, the Slim Shady gave a slightly-disturbing shout-out to his "Roman's Revenge" collaborator Nicki Minaj in the lead single. He later mocked Lady GaGa and Justin Bieber in another track. There is also a collaboration with comedian Mike Epps in "I'm on Everything".

They released the album across the United States on June 14, and arrived in the first position on Billboard Hot 200 with modest 171,000 copies. "I knew it had the potential. I just really was more focused on the whole 'critically acclaimed' thing, and I think we achieved that. I'm only hearing good things about how people feel about the album," Royce said.

"I think it's great for an artist of Eminem's stature to do a project like this, especially with a dude like me," he went on. "And to only focus on lyrics and not worry about performance or radio or nothing like that. To go in there spitting, I think, is refreshing to hip-hop."
