It has been announced that Detroit, Michigan emcees Eminem and Royce Da 5'9 will revive their late '90s duo Bad Meets Evil. RapRadar.com has reported that Em and one of his longtime friends and Shady Records artist (by way of Slaughterhouse) Royce are planning an EP to release on June 14.
Eminem said the following in a released statement, "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."
Production will be reportedly handled by Havoc of Mobb Deep, Mr. Porter, Bangladesh and DJ Khalil.
