Royce told HipHopDX.com
that the Bad Meets Evil project came about after he and Eminem got back into the studio together again. "Normally, if you gonna do an LP where Em is involved, you start with a plan and then you go in and you do records," he explained. "This didn't come together like that; it just happened naturally. We just started cuttin' songs, just to be working with each other again, with no intent in mind. We didn't even know we were gonna do that many songs, so at around five or six songs, we lookin' like, 'Yo, man, we got these records, I think we should do something with 'em.' That's when we decided, 'You know what? We can just do this as Bad Meets Evil and just make it an EP.'"
