"Bad Meets Evil" introduced us to the original renegades.


Eminem's relationship with Royce Da 5'9" was quietly forged during the frenetic studio sessions. The single moment that many observers point to as a solidifying act for the two rappers occurs on track 19 on the Slim Shady LP. Slim Shady spent record time dismantling the institutions many Americans cling to without much in the way of critical thinking. By the final stages of the LP, Eminem had exhausted every passing lane yet saved a little gas to put his "brother" on for their mission statement.

From there, their relationship skyrocketed. "Bad Meets Evil" became the official moniker for their work as a duo. Behind the scenes, Eminem took a more personal stake in his relationship with Royce. When Eminem reached the milestone of 10 years sober, Royce was the first to congratulate him. The passing of Proof, was something they had to mull together. Proof was the person who first introduced Em to Royce in the beginning stages of their respective careers. "Bad Meets Evil" stands the test of time as a historical landmark, but with all due respect, it is much much more than record of employment.

Enjoy.

Quotable Lyrics:

Who hard? Yo, I done heard worse
We can get in two cars and accelerate at each other
To see which one'll swerve first
Two blind bandits panic whose mental capacity holds that of a globe on top of nine other planets
Kissed the cheek of the Devil, intelligence level
Is hellier than treble peakin' on speakers in the ghetto

-Royce Da 5'9"
