2. The fact that they are both well-known at this point doesn't make the whole Bad Meets Evil concept sound as crazy as it did originally.
Take one listen to "Fast Lane" and it's pretty clear that Em and Royce are on some other ish when they're rapping as a duo. Royce is getting liquored-up and talking trash. Em is doing crazy things with his penis. But, hey, that's Royce and Em being Royce and Em, right!? Right. But we didn't necessarily know that back in the late-'90s, which would have made Bad Meets Evil sound extra crazy back then. It would have been good for rap—but would they be as far along in their respective careers with that as their initial offering to the world?
