Bad Meets Evil, featuring Detroit rappers Royce da 5’9″ and Eminem, are out with the music video to their new single ‘Lighters’, with a guest appearance by Bruno Mars. The track is off Bad Meets Evil’s debut EP ‘Hell: The Sequel’, out now on Shady / Interscope Records.
Eminem said on Shade 45 he wanted to make a song different from the styles of the rest of the album with ‘Lighters’. “Bruno Mars is incredible, man,” Em explained. “The dude’s an incredible talent, you know what I’m saying? The way he sings and some of the notes and sh** he hits, he’s fu**in’ sick with it… Let’s not stick to the basic and typical album structure, you know, the way everybody else is doing things and try to be… you know, go out of a way to do things. Let’s just have fun with it and see where it takes us.”

Royce da 5’9″ weighed in on a couple topics in the news to his Twitter (@RoyceDaFive9) followers this morning, including what he thinks should happen in New York if LeBron James heads to the Knicks, and the tears that erupted from Lindsay Lohan after she learned she had received a 90 day jail sentence for a probation violation. The Detroit rapper writes:
GotDamn Lindsay… It’s 90 days not the electric chair calm down… Jeez
I was locked up with ni**a that went 90 days without showering. This broad crying over that lil sh**…
If LeBron end up in NY, y’all ni**a better not have him waiting outside at the clubs n sh**.. Don’t make him wear a wristband neither..
And don’t be patting him down grabbing his balls all hard talking bout “what?! I’m doing ma job son”
Whatever team he chooses I hope the local drug dealers don’t send him bottles in the club and then talk sh** if he has a bad game after..
