Eminem and Royce Da 5'9" Raise "Hell" on the Charts

The lyrical duo claim Billboard’s top spot.

Published June 22, 2011

It's good to be bad. Eminem and Royce Da 5'9", who record together under the moniker Bad Meets Evil, have scored a number one debut on the Billboard 200 with their collaborative EP Hell: The Sequel. The Detroit duo sold over 166,000 copies of the nine-track opus in its first week.

For Royce, the project's success marks his first-ever number-one album, while Eminem, who holds the distinction of being the best selling artist of the last decade, is certainly no stranger to the top spot.

Elsewhere on the charts, Tech N9ne, who landed an impressive #4 debut with his new album All 6's and 7's last week, dips to #23 this week with a 66% decline. The independent release sold just over 18,000 copies in week number two.
