What a beautiful day this turned out to be for a hip-hop fanatic!! First a new Show & AG track out of nowhere and now something hip-hop fans all over the world has dreamt of for over a decade now. Bad Meets Evil is of course the original name of the duo consisting of the two super lyricists from Detroit; Royce Da 5'9" and Eminem. They made a bunch of classic tracks around '98-00 before a lot of bad blood came between them and chances of an actual Bad Meets Evil album vanished into the air. The duo did however patch things together between them and finally released their long-awaited "Hell: The Sequel" album earlier this year.
What's just as, if not more amazing, is that DJ Premeir has remixed the single "Writer's Block". This alternative mix will appear as a bonus track on the Deluxe iTunes version of Royce's upcoming LP, "Success is Certain" which will be available on August 9. But thanks to DJ Premier, who played it on his radio show Live From HQ yesterday, and Gimantalon, who was kind enough to rip it and upload it, we can hear already today hear a slightly tagged version of the track. Like I said at the beginning of this post, hip-hop fans all over has fiended for an Eminem/Premier collaboration pretty much since the first time we realized just how talented Em was, and still is. So what y'all think does it live up to the sky high expectations or not??
The "Success is Certain" album also features the Premier produced "Second Place". Oh, and while you're at it - don't forget to check out the compilation of all previous Royce/Preemo collaborations which I put together a while back and titled "BANG IT!". Once again, all thanks goes out to Gim @ The DJ Premier Blog for the link below.
