Last week, Em spoke on snapping into his 'Bad Meets Evil' rap alias alongside Royce.
"Me and Royce, ever since back in the day when we did records together, we always had kind of a chemistry," said in an interview. "It was fairly easy to play off what each other was doing, and I think we can [think] a lot alike...This record, the way it came together, it wasn't anything that we planned to do. We didn't get together and say, 'Hey, man, let's make a Bad Meets Evil record.' It was more so along the lines of us making amends and repairing our issues that we had, and then one day, Bad [Royce] brought asong to me and wanted me to jump on it, and the way it ended up coming out, it was pretty easy to do. It didn't take a lot of time. It was fun to do it. The way we knocked that record out kind of quickly ... it just morphed into this." (MTV)
Recently Detroit's own eLZhi hit up SOHH to share his thoughts on the upcoming project.
"Man, I've been waiting on that EP since [Em's manager] Paul [Rosenberg] flew me out to NYC in '97 and they had a record on Game [Recordings], which was the Bad Vs. Evil, so I've been waiting on this since back then," eLZhi told SOHH. "The new song I heard, 'Fast Lane,' is pretty, pretty insane. I think it's going to be incredible, man. Eminem and Royce Da 5'9 are two of the best in the industry. Hands down. So I'm excited." (SOHH)
Last week, the project's cover artwork leaked online.
Eminem and Royce da 5'9" aka Bad Meets Evil unveil the cover art for Hell: The Sequel, the duo's collaborative album, due June 14. The reunited Detroit MCs sit perched on speakers as broken televisions and records lay strewn across the floor in the ominous photo by photographer Danny Hastings, who shot the artwork for The Slim Shady LP and Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
