On the night of Slaughterhouse’s concert at Los Angeles’ House of Blues, FreeOnSmash.com spoke with the four rappers individually about their progress and upcoming projects.

Detroit rapper Royce Da 5’9 of course shared his thoughts on his joint project with Eminem, Bad Meets Evil: Hell The Sequel. He revealed that he’s glad the project was released now because it gave both rappers time to mature.

“I think had we done it back then I don’t think it would have been as good as now. Just because both of us are a lot more mature. Everything Joey just said about himself, me and Marshall are. More mature,” Royce explained. “We kind of like owning are craft even though he’s been owning his for a long time. But I’ve did a lot of maturing. Marshall’s clean, sober, thinking very clear. Everything is like real concise with the lyrics, precise.”

Although Royce explained that the album will be a much better project now because of how both he and Eminem have matured he’s still surprised at how much buzz the project has received thus far.

“I was actually surprised at how many people is actually looking forward to hearing it,” said the rapper. “I thought the buzz would be bigger back then since that was a whole different age range of kids back then, but it’s a lot of young kids that still want to hear it. I was kind of surprised at that so I think it’ll make the proper impact. I don’t know if I’m gonna make any predictions, but I’m just curious to see what people think.”

Bad Meets Evil: Hell The Sequel will be released next week on Tuesday, June 14.
