Eminem Explains Dr. Dre 'Bad Meets Evil' Absence
Em claims Dre is "cracking down" to get his Detox LP finished...
The Not Afraid rapper, who has teamed up with Royce as Bad Meets Evil on their upcoming EP, Hell: The Sequel, explained to MTV.com's RadFix Live: "I think Dre is, like, really cracking down on getting Detox finished, so I think he's more so focused on that."
"I really didn't say anything to Dre till kinda like the last minute. We didn't really say anything to anybody about what was going on because we weren't sure what was going to happen with it."
He continued: "It wasn't like I said, 'Yo, Dre, can we get a beat for this project that we're workin' on?' Because it wasn't really necessarily a project yet."
Royce added: "We didn't reach out to any producers, because we were just cuttin' random and we didn't actually know that we were workin' on a project."
Em went on to explain how the duo went about securing music for the record, stating: "It was more so that we were getting beat CDs from the label — from Shady and some of the A&Rs there were sending us beat CDs from various producers — and we would hear beats like, 'That one's crazy.' "
