Eminem and Royce da 5'9 to Release EP
It's really amazing how life can be circular. Back in 1999, Eminem and Royce da 5'9 put out an EP called "Bad Meets Evil." The concept was carried over on to Eminem's first album on Dr. Dre's record label Aftermath - The Slim Shady LP - but a falling out between Royce and Eminem and D12 strained their relationship. It looks like they've buried the past and are going on to go good things:
Looks like that Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″ collaborative project is in fact coming out. June 14th will be the day you can cop the EP inspired by their 1999 collaboration ‘Bad Meets Evil’. Expect the project to have production from Mr. Porter, Havoc, DJ Khalil, Bangladesh and others.
Both Eminem and Royce are looking to be the Robert Downey Jr.'s of hip hop - down and out from personal problems but back slinging and unapologetic.
