While trying not to give away too many details, contributing producer and D12 member Mr. Porter spoke on the EP's evolvement.

"The album is dope. That's all I can tell you about it," said Porter when Mixtape Daily caught up with him at his Detroit studio. The idea for a Bad Meets Evil EP first came about while Porter and Royce were working on Royce's solo album."We had one song and it turned into, 'Yo, what do you think about getting Em on this record?' " Denuan recalled. Soon, Royce and Em were bouncing ideas back and forth, and more producers were eventually brought into the fold. (MTV)
