In general it left me with a great taste and desire to hear it again and again. The level of the production and rapping is very high and I think that there might should be more tracks in there. But more isn’t always better! Throughout the cd you get the chance to hear 2 of Detroit’s best MCs’ flows become one. It is amazing how these 2 combine their rap! As for the music I have to say “Bravo” to the producers. High quality mid-West sound just it was supposed to be! A great EP after all. I totally recomend it to you, especially if you are an Eminem, Royce or mid-West rap fan. Enjoy!!
ALBUM REVIEW: "BAD MEETS EVIL: HELL, THE SEQUEL" EP – EMINEM & ROYCE DA 5’9"
Eminem and Royce Da 5’9” join forces after over 10 years since their first track together: “Bad meets Evil”, which was featured on Eminem’s “The Slim Shady LP”.
To start with lets go to to the cover: Royce and Eminem are sitting on 2 speakers in front of a deserted scenery, with broken lps under their feet, while “Bad Meets Evil: Hell, the Sequel” is written on the center top of it.
To the tracks:
The EP starts with an intro song: “Welcome to Hell” where in the end Eminem welcomes you at the cd. I hit next on my iPod and i find “Fastlane”. Maybe the best song on the EP and the first single, with a videoclip. Next is “The Reunion” with a nice dark tune and Eminem taking the singing parts from Royce on “Fastlane”. I find myself in the middle of the EP with “Above the Law” which starts with a female voice and music that remindes me Eminem’s “Finally Famous” from the “Recovery” album. 5th track is the one called “I’m On Everything” and it’s refrain is quite original! By hitting next I come across the track “A Kiss” produced by Bangladesh and as always Bangladesh leaves his mark on the song. The next track brings me at the first collaboration of the EP. Eminem and Royce Da 5’9” bring Bruno Mars to sing the refrain of “Lighters” and it suprisingly sounds very good! Track number 8: “Take From Me” is another mid-west rap song which means that it is great! “Loud Noises” is the only song that I might wouldn’t put on the EP although it features a very fast flow from Eminem and Slaughterhouse. And that’s the end of the EP!!!
