’11 Best Albums: #5 Bad Meets Evil Hell: The Sequel

If lyricism made a resurgence last year, much of the credit can go to Bad Meets Evil and their EP, Hell: The Sequel. Havoc’s haunting crackle sets the tone with “Welcome 2 Hell”. “Fast Lane” ups the ante with Royce and Em battling for lyrical supremacy. Em keeps it G on “Above The Law”, (“I’m trying to stay on fire, so you know if I hate fuckin’ water sprinklers I don’t love the hoes”) with Royce following suit, (“Baby I’m lawless, you couldn’t burn me if you threw acid on me”). The duo lighten the mood on “Everything” and illuminate spirits with “Lighters”. Come to think about it, Hell might not be such a bad place after all.

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    I didn’t think they would put a EP but I’m cool with it at 5. Now put Childish Gambino Camp.

  • Awesome

    Lyrically, it’s good. It’s an EP after all. They didn’t they were going to release an album or EP. After all, it doesn’t really have a theme. They just named it hell the sequel because eminem said that back in 1999 on their first song, I belive if they actually put out an actual Bad Meets Evil album, it will completely better.

  • Fireman

    This list fucking sucks damn. Wheres Goblin and Camp?

  • That Guy

    I like this a lot, but…..THIS IS AN EP! Stick to your criteria RR. god damn.

  • Swiss163

  • Word

    Please don’t put Self Made on this last! I guess this is cool but I’m still pissed y’all got Cole and Kendrick under this. But hey, y’all gotta do what y’all do. Next year let’s see individual lists from each blogger rather than a universal one. OR, just add y’all individual best album list after this one.

  • Sc_R

    I hear all the arguments but WTT should be #1… that’s some once every generation type shit that 2 of biggest ppl in music period get together to do an album

  • t

    all those line’s are corny as fuck
    “I’m trying to stay on fire, so you know if I hate fucking water sprinklers I don’t love the hoes”

    and royce’s line isnt even good enough to called corny

    “Baby I’m lawless, you couldn’t burn me if you threw acid on me”

    honestly?

  • Anon DCPL

    Section.80
    Greatest Story Never Told
    WTT
    Cole World
