Eminem, Royce 5’9″ to Release ‘Hell: The Sequel’ EP on June 14
Marshall Mathers announced the EP’s official title on Twitter, Monday night (May 2) with two brief messages. “At midnight I’m announcing the EP title,” he tweeted. The title, ‘Hell: The Sequel’ simply followed.
Royce Nickel Nine — now one fourth of Shady Record‘s Slaughterhouse group — began to collaborate with Eminem as Bad Meets Evil over a decade ago, but never released a completed body of work, despite having popular singles. Producers on the upcoming EP will include Bangladesh, DJ Khalil, Mobb Deep‘s Havoc and Denaun Porter.
Porter, an original member of Eminem’s D12 crew, gave MTV’s RapFix the scoop on the new EP. “The idea for a Bad Meets Evil EP first came about while Porter and Royce were working on Royce’s solo album,” Porter explained. “We had one song and it turned into, ‘Yo, what do you think about getting Em on this record?'”
Eminem and Royce’s first single was 1999’s ‘Nothin’ to Do’ and this year, they have teamed up to release the new tracks ‘Writer’s Block’ and ‘Echo.’
‘Hell: The Sequel’ is currently set for a June 14 release.
