Royce da 5’9” and Eminem also known as Bad Meets Evil have had a relationship for over 20 years. Whenever they collaborate together there is a huge buzz. Earlier this year the track “Caterpillar” off of Royce’s album Book of Ryan was released. The circumstances how they met was captured on Royce’s track “Tabernacle” off of Royce’s 2016 album Layers on a day he will never forget for multiple reasons.
The date was December 28th 1997. Royce that night had a gig at a venue as the opening act for Usher. His manager Kino had booked the show. On that same day would be the birth of his son and the passing of his grandmother. Most people under those circumstances would have opted not to perform. Royce made the decision to persevere.
The way the story goes was that Eminem had a booth at the concert venue selling his Slim Shady EP. Kino made the introduction and Eminem was impressed by Royce. Fast forward a year later, Eminem was being signed to Aftermath and had passed off Royce’s demo to Dr Dre. Dr Dre flew out Royce to work on music for his album Chronic 2001. Ultimately Royce was offered to sign with Aftermath Records but opted for Tommy Boy Records instead.
