Eminem, Royce da 5’9″ set Bad Meets Evil EP for summer

The rap game is known for its frequent beefs, but here’s a story of reconciliation for a change. After eight years and six total diss tracks, Eminem and Royce da 5’9” are not only friends again, but labelmates (does that kind of make Em Royce’s boss?). Now, according to Rap Radar, the MCs will become co-collaborators for the first time since 1999’s The Slim Shady LP.

A joint EP sharing its name with their previous team-up, “Bad Meets Evil,” will drop on June 14th. Says Mr. Mathers of the reunion, “Royce and I started hanging out again and inevitable that led us back into the studio. At first we were just seeing where it went without any real goal in mind, but the songs started to come together crazy, so here we are.”

Royce’s group Slaughterhouse has yet to release their Shady Records debut, but he hopes this will hold fans over. “I’m excited to see this project come to fruition considering the long lapse in time between when we worked before and now,” he says. “We had a blast doing it and we just hope everyone enjoys it while we’re working on the ‘Monster’ that will be the Slaughterhouse album.”

Royce also has a solo album coming out July 26th entitled Success is Certain.
