Details Release Date: Jun 14, 2011; Lead Performance: Bad Meets Evil; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Production: Aftermath and Interscope

Last year's 
 Recovery saw Eminem 
 finding the more dynamic moments hidden between his blasts of bluster. He returns to mostly eye-popping intensity on this tag-team effort with fellow Detroiter Royce Da 5' 9''. The pair spew acid-tongued battle raps that shout down 
 celebrities (Lady Gaga and 
 Justin Bieber join the hit 
 list with 
 obsessive conviction, but the Bruno Mars-produced pop 
 nugget ''Lighters'' makes the rest of Hell: The Sequel's dark leanings more fulfilling. B+
