The duo also collaborated on their 1999 12-inch single "Nuttin' to Do" along with several other collaborations released the same year. However, as D12 rose to fame in the early 2000s, Eminem and Royce had a falling out resulting in both sides going their separate ways. The feud turned into a public rivalry between Royce and D12 and lead to Royce releasing three diss tracks aimed at the group. After disses were exchanged from both sides, Royce and fallen D12 member Proof reconciled their differences before Proof's death in 2006. Two years later, Royce was featured on D12's mixtape "Return of the Dozen Vol. 1" in 2008 and also joined the group on tour in Europe and Canada.
Rumors of Royce and Slaughterhouse signing to Shady Records began in late 2009 when Royce, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, and Joe Budden appeared alongside Eminem in the "Forever" video. After months of speculation and anticipation, Eminem announced in January 2011 that he had officially signed Slaughterhouse to Shady Records as the full report was made in the March cover-story for XXL Magazine.
Two songs titled "Echo" and "Living Proof" were leaked onto the Internet in November 2010, causing speculation among fans about an upcoming Bad Meets Evil project: on April 25, 2011, the EP was confirmed, and on May 2, Eminem announced the EP's title Hell: The Sequel.The two songs will included as bonus tracks on the deluxe version of the album. The title is a direct reference to a previous Eminem and Royce collaboration, "Bad Meets Evil" on The Slim Shady LP as they end the song by saying "See you in Hell for the sequel, bad meets evil."
Royce da 5'9" stated that he reached out to Eminem for his next single "Writer's Block", and they started working on a project together. 
The album features production from Mr. Porter, Havoc, Bangladesh, Sid Roams, Supa Dups and The Smeezingtons. Mike Epps, Slaughterhouse and Bruno Mars appear as guest artists. Canadian singer Liz Rodrigues is also featured on the bonus track "Echo". Singer Claret Jai is also sings the hook on the songs "Above the Law" and "Take from Me".
