Album Review

Since the hip-hop community caught wind of them around 1999, Bad Meets Evil spent a decade in the more-a-legend-than-a-band category. Members Eminem and Royce da 5'9" spent those years not speaking thanks to beefs and feuds, but then the 2006 murder of their mutual friend, D12 member Proof, brought them back together. Fast-forward to 2011 and this EP re-launches the project, although fans have already been notified that Hell: The Sequel is “a collection of tracks” so excuse the mess. It’s not much of a mess, really, as the glossy “Lighters” feels more like a Bruno Mars track than Detroit diesel, while “stop stealing my music” tracks like “Take from Me” rarely become fan favorites.

Past the Mars cut, Hell: The Sequel helps right that wrong, providing the welcome sound of Shady meets the streets.
