Report: Royce Da 5’9″ Revisits The Singles That Inspired Iconic Duo ‘Bad Meets Evil’

Em and Royce go way back, first working together on ‘Scary Movies’ and ‘Nuttin To Do’ in 1998.

Only very few lovers of the Hip Hop musical genre will not have heard of the iconic rap duo of American rappers Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″. While Em, the more popular of the two rappers continues to be touted as the best lyricist of all time, many Hip Hop lovers also recognise the skills and finesse that Royce can have on any track.

Such was the craftsmanship they brought on board when they dropped their double singles ‘Scary Movies’ and ‘Nuttin To Do’ in 1998. The two songs led to both rappers finally working on a joint extended play, ‘Hell: The Sequel’ going by the name Bad Meets Evil.

Hell: The Sequel contained singles ‘Fast Lane’ and ‘Lighters’, it has today, sold more than 1 million copies in the US which qualifies it for platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

For those wondering, Reef was the producer who actually laced both “Scary Movies” and “Nuttin To Do.” Anyone looking to go back and revisit one of the formative Bad Meets Evil tracks would be wise to look back at that early 1998 single, as it contains some of their rawest lyrics ever.
