Rapper Eminem is reuniting with his former Bad Meets Evil partner Royce da 5'9" for a new mini album. The Slim Shady and the Slaughterhouse rapper has officially confirmed their reunion for the album, which will be released in the United States on June 14 via Shady/Interscope Records.
In a statement, Eminem has expressed his excitement over his reunion project. He says, "Royce and I started hanging out again and inevitably that led us back into the studio. At first we were just seeing where it went without any real goal in mind, but the songs started to come together crazy, so here we are."
Meanwhile, Royce has also confirmed their reunion album. He says, "I'm excited to see this project come to fruition considering the long lapse in time between when we worked before and now. We had a blast doing it and we just hope everyone enjoys it while we're working on the 'Monster' that will be the Slaughterhouse album. #TeamShady."
Eminem first met Royce da 5'9" in 1997 at a concert in Detroit. Later, they worked together under the moniker Bad Meets Evil. But they parted their ways over a reluctant feud. Now, they are coming back together with a new album, title of which will be announced by Interscope Records soon.
