Biography

Bad Meets Evil is an American hip hop duo from Detroit, Michigan that consists of rappers Eminem and Royce da 5’9”. They are best known for collaborating on the self-titled song that appeared on Eminem’s major-label debut album The Slim Shady LP in 1999 and their early association with Dr. Dre and his label Aftermath Entertainment.

The duo recorded numerous well received underground songs including the popular song “Renegade” which would later be used on Jay-Z’s The Blueprint album with Royce’s verses replaced by Jay-Z. They have also recorded numerous freestyles together, including a 12-minute long battle. Footage of a Bad Meets Evil concert filmed in September 1998 in Boston at the Lyricist Lounge has also been leaked onto the internet.

Bad Meets Evil split up in early 2000s, after Royce fell out with Eminem’s group, D12. They have since reunited and released their album Hell: The Sequel on June 14, 2011, which debuted at number 1 in the Billboard 200 charts.
