Released Date for "Hell: The Sequel" Confirmed.
Eminem announced the EP's official title on Twitter, Monday night (May 2) with two brief messages. "At midnight I'm announcing the EP title," he tweeted. The title, 'Hell: The Sequel' simply followed.
Royce Da 5'9- began to collaborate with Eminem as Bad Meets Evil over a decade ago, but never released a completed body of work, despite having popular singles. Producers on the upcoming EP will include DJ Khalil, Mobb Deep's Havoc and D12 member Denaun Porter.
Porter revealed how the album idea got off the ground: "The idea for a Bad Meets Evil EP first came about while Porter and Royce were working on Royce's solo album," Porter explained. "We had one song and it turned into, 'Yo, what do you think about getting Em on this record?'"
Eminem and Royce's first single was 1999's 'Nothin' to Do' and this year, they have teamed up to release the new tracks 'Writer's Block' and 'Echo.'
'Hell: The Sequel' is currently set for a June 14 release.
