A hip-hop duo featuring Marshall Mathers and Ryan Montgomery -- aka Eminem and Royce da 5'9" -- Bad Meets Evil came together in 1997 thanks to the duoGÇÖs mutual friend, rapper Proof. After recording a handful of tracks and performing some shows around their native Detroit, Eminem embarked on a solo career. Besides launching his own solo gig, Royce would land on EmGÇÖs 1999 effort The Slim Shady LP on a track called GÇ£Bad Meets Evil,GÇ¥ but after the albumGÇÖs massive success, Eminem remained a solo artist and the group was put on hold. Things got worse when business deals between Royce and EminemGÇÖs producer/mentor, Dr. Dre, went sour, and then the group broke up after Royce began feuding with EminemGÇÖs new set of prot+¬g+¬s, the group D12. After D12GÇÖs Proof was murdered in 2006, the two began talking again. RoyceGÇÖs group Slaughterhouse would be signed to EmGÇÖs Shady label in 2010, and then Bad Meets Evil would reunite for their debut EP, Hell: The Sequel, which was released by Shady in 2011. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
