Eminem, Royce da 5’9″ + Bruno Mars See the Light in New Video for ‘Lighters’
Bad Meets Evil consists of rap duo Eminem and Royce da 5'9" who are pretty much two of the fiercest rappers to come out of Detroit. They just released a new video for 'Lighters,' which is from their celebrated EP 'Hell: The Sequel.'
The Rich Lee-directed clip features Em chilling on the couch writing raps for a new song with intercuts of him rapping in a dark tunnel. Meanwhile, we see Royce wandering in his jail cell when he notices a secret panel in the wall and decides escapes through it. While both men are walking through a dark tunnel, they spit acidic lyrics to the haters and vow to become the best rappers in the game.
"This rap game’s nipple is mine for the milking / Till nobody else even f------ feels me, till’ it kills me / I swear to god I’ll be the f------ illest in this music," Em raps. Royce follows suit with his line: "Life is wacky now / Used to have to eat the cat to get the p---- / Now I’m just the cats meow / Ooww / Classic now / Always down for the catch / Weight like Pacquiao."
Singer Bruno Mars simply plays the piano belting out the yearning chorus, "Until lighters are in the sky." In the end, we eventually see a sky full of lights as Em, Royce and Bruno look on in amazement. With 'Lighters,' Em and Royce -- as Bad Meets Evil -- are finally getting some shine on the pop charts.
