As arbitrary and meaningless as Easter is to me, being an atheist myself – nevertheless, what better present than the news of a Bad Meets Evil EP eh? fuck chocolate eggs, give me some new Em and Royce and I’ll be happy.
It will be released on Shady on June 14th of this year. Brilliant.
I mean, it is coming in June so perhaps not QUITE a present for Easter, a little late. Imagine that…
Somebody: Got you a gift for Easter!
You: Brilliant! what is it?
Somebody: It’s an EP of new music from Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″, as Bad Meets Evil.
You: Wow, thanks a lot, where is it?
Somebody: Well, it’s eh, not released yet. It’ll be out on June 14th so, you can have it then k?
But the news itself is good enough.
I seriously cannot believe this is happening. Well, I can believe it, what choice do I have when it is in fact, happening. But, after their beef, how huge Em got and how forgotten Royce got, I never ever thought I’d hear a Bad Meets Evil record ever again. And not only will we be hearing them together again, we’ll be having a whole fucking EP of them. FINALLY.
Here’s what Em and Royce both had to say about the situation:
Royce and I started hanging out again and inevitably that led us back into the studio. At first we were just seeing where it went without any real goal in mind, but the songs started to come together crazy, so here we are.
I’m excited to see this project come to fruition considering the long lapse in time between when we worked before and now. We had a blast doing it and we just hope everyone enjoys it while we’re working on the ‘Monster’ that will be the Slaughterhouse album.
The only thing better than this now would be that they release a whole album of material. I do not think that will happen as, well, I doubt they’re going to be aiming this thing at the masses, it’s clearly to appease hardcore fans. But who knows, up until today I thought all we’d ever get in the future from these two is the odd verses on each other’s albums, but, we’ll have an EP in less than two months. Gear up.
Production for this EP will come from Mr. Porter, Havoc, DJ Khalil, Bangladesh and others.
Thanks for asking.
