Eminem Explains Royce Da 5’9’s Influence On His Latest ‘Marshall Mathers LP 2’ Album

Posted By on November 21, 2013

Eminem has decided to let everyone know that Royce Da 5’9 is the person who needs to get the most credit for his latest “Marshall Mathers LP 2”  album. In a recent interview with Zane Lowe, Em expressed his thoughts on how Royce Da 5’9’s influence has helped create where he is at musically.

According to EM, the “Bad Meets Evil EP” he did with Royce in 2011 helped generate his sound on his latest project.

The third part of Eminem’s four-part interview with Zane Lowe has been released. Eminem talks about his lyrical direction on The Marshall Mathers LP 2, his collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on “Love Game” and how “Headlights” came about. Eminem says he was partially influenced by the EP Hell: The Sequel that he and Royce da 5’9″ made in 2011. The experience allowed him to open up from a lyrical standpoint, which is something he continued on the new album. “Making the EP with Royce was like, we weren’t making an album so we didn’t have to round it out,” he says. “We didn’t have to make sure that we covered a bunch of subjects or didn’t make every song the same topic-wise. I kind of took some of that with me to this record.” (Complex)
