Labels have searched tirelessly for the next great white rapper ever since Eminem first broke onto the scene in 1999. They failed. But there is a new generation of white emcees ready to breakthrough into the mainstream. Let’s go two years back, Asher Roth was on the rise. He had a very successful mixture to his name, The Greenhouse Effect, and his hit single I Love College was tearing up the charts. On a side note Asher has one of my favorite lines ever on his A Millie Freestyle where he goes “you stupid m***********s don’t get it, it’s pathetic, cause you get to the pros and don’t do s**t like you Reddick”, best line ever. Inevitably Asher Roth started drawing comparisons to Eminem all over the place. He couldn’t go anywhere or do any interview without being asked about the comparisons. Fast forward two years, while Asher didn’t become the next Eminem, he potentially opened the door for other white emcees without even realizing it.

Bad Meets Evil is the hip-hop group of Royce da 5’9″ and Eminem, this is the groups first release despite collaborating for upwards of ten years. The first collaborated all the way back in 1999 for Eminem’s The Slim Shady LP on the track titled Bad Meetes Evil (wonder if that’s where they got their name from). It was clear that had some serious chemistry with each other behind the mic, so they started collaborating more frequently. Rumors of a collaboration album started however nothing surfaced. Mainly because as D12 rose to fame Eminem and Royce had a fall out, causing them to cut ties and go separate ways. The rapper Proof (from D12) had been trying to reconcile the two for some years until his death after a shooting outside a club. Proof was Eminem’s best friend and a close friend to Royce, so they soon made up and squashed the beef. Royce then made apperances on some of D12’s mixtapes and solo members of D12’s albums. Also Eminem recently signed Royce’s group, Slaughterhouse, to his Shady Records. With the release of Eminem’s Recovery and Royce’s group Slaugterhouse’s work, it is arguable that both emcees are on the top of their game. So does Hell: The Sequel live up the the expectations first put upon it 13 years ago?
