Hide the women and children because Bad and Evil are coming to “RapFix Live”!
Ever since [artist id="502642"]Eminem[/artist] and Royce Da 5’9″ announced they would be joining forces to drop a Bad Meets Evil EP on Shady Records this June, hip-hop fans have been buzzing with excitement.
This Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, Em and Royce will join MTV News’ Sway Calloway to give us the lowdown on their reunited duo and upcoming EP, Hell: The Sequel. For starters, the rappers reveal which of them is “Bad” and which is “Evil.”
“I’m not Royce today: I’m ‘Bad’; [Eminem] is ‘Evil,’ ” Nickel Nine explained on the set of the duo’s upcoming “Fast Lane” video.
Eminem added, “For the most part, I like my name, and I think I wanna be ‘Evil.’ We’ve had a debate about this before.”
The Detroit MCs formed the duo in 1999 when they appeared together on the track “Bad Meets Evil” on Eminem’s major-label debut, The Slim Shady LP, and released an independent single (with “Nuthin’ to Do,” “Scary Movies” and “I’m King”) on Game Recordings. A feud halted any collaboration for years, but Marshall and Royce have since made peace, and in January it was announced that Royce’s group, Slaughterhouse, was signed to Em’s Shady Records .
Hell: The Sequel — featuring production from Mobb Deep’s Havoc, DJ Khalil, Bangladesh and D12 member Denaun Porter — will be released June 14.
