Slaughterhouse’s Royce Da 5’9 recently opened up about working alongside Eminem for their upcoming Bad Meets Evil EP and why Slim Shady’s talent goes unmatched.
Giving Em props for motivating him to work harder, Royce hinted at what Shady Records fans can anticipate from the upcoming EP.
“To me, [Eminem is] one of the greatest rappers ever. So if you’re standing in there with him and watching him create, you can only spit on a certain level in order to even keep up,” Royce said in an interview. “With me, I feel like it’s good for me because I get pushed. It brings more out of me…We went in and did actually 11 records, two of ‘em leaked, so we’re gonna use the other nine and that was it. We didn’t go do 15 records and try to pick the best. We didn’t make it an Eminem album so Eminem is under the same pressure of selling what he normally sells. We’re not really thinking about that.” (MTV)
