A YouTube channel recently uploaded unreleased footage of an Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″ concert, which took place back in 1999 in Massachusetts. The video is around a half-hour long with the footage taking place a few weeks before the Slim Shady LP dropped.
The concert itself finds Eminem and Royce still underground. It’s difficult that either of them would imagine selling out massive concerts watching this video of them in a low-capacity venue. Both rappers are seen rapping their Bad Meets Evil verses, even when a woman comes on-stage and takes her top off. Em also calls out his then-rival Cage, which was followed by a power outage during Em’s single, “Just Don’t Give A F*ck.”
It’s been a couple years since we last got a Bad Meets Evil album, but this year both rappers blessed their audiences with multiple collaborations. Hopefully they start working on a new album soon, but until then we have this clip to see their chemistry throughout the years.
