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?
