Bad Meets Evil is an American hip hop duo from Detroit, Michigan, consisting of rappers Royce da 5'9" (Bad) and Eminem (Evil). The group was formed in 1998 through the duo's mutual friend Proof. Their discography consists of one EP and four singles. In 1998, the duo released a double non-album single, "Nuttin' to Do"/"Scary Movies"; the former peaked at #36 on the Hot Rap Songs chart. 

The duo broke up after a feud developed between Royce and the members of Eminem's other group, D12. The feud ended when Proof was killed in April 2006, and Eminem and Royce reconciled. After Royce's supergroup Slaughterhouse signed to Eminem's record label Shady Records, a reunion of Bad Meets Evil followed with the extended play Hell: The Sequel, which was released in 2011 and reached #1 on the Billboard 100. The EP's lead single "Fast Lane" peaked at #32 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the second single "Lighters", featuring Bruno Mars, reached #4 on the same chart. The duo returned in 2014 for the 15 year anniversary album of Shady Records, SHADYXV, with the song "Vegas", and again 2015 to record two tracks for the boxing film Southpaw, titled "All I Think About" and "Raw".
