About this album

“Fast Lane” (commonly misspelled as “Fastlane”) is the lead single by hip hop duo Bad Meets Evil, a group composed of Royce da 5’9” and Eminem, from their first EP Hell: The Sequel. It’s their first single as a group since the 1999 hit “Nuttin’ to Do” and the duo’s major label debut single, due to a break-up in late 2000. The song was released May 3, 2011 by Shady Records. The single was produced by Eminem, Supa Dups, and Jason “JG” Gilbert. Texas rapper Chamillionaire released a remix of this song on May 8, 2011.

A music video was shot in mid-May of 2011, by director James Larese of music video direction group Syndrome. A teaser premiered on Eminem’s YouTube channel on May 27, 2011. The partially animated video premiered on June 8, 2011 on Bad Meets Evil’s official website. The music video features animated visuals and kinetic typography. The video includes cameo appearances of Mr. Porter and Slaughterhouse. Fans and critics considered it a return to Eminem’s ‘Slim Shady’ alter ego.
The song was very well received compared to the rest of the EP and was considered a highlight of Hell: The Sequel. Critics favored the song for its change from Eminem’s theme in Recovery. Rolling Stone called it “1999-style”. Bad Meets Evil performed this song at the 2011 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival with American record producer and D12 rapper Mr. Porter.
