Royce 5’9″ & Eminem Reconnect On “Caterpillar”

blame it on Shake May 3, 2018

Bad Meets Evil reunite.

With Book of Ryan arriving at midnight, Royce 5’9″ is back with another taste of his highly-anticipated album.

Already three singles deep (“Boblo Boat” with J. Cole, “Stay Woke,” and “Dumb” with Boogie), Nickel Nine reconnects with Eminem for song number four, “Caterpillar.”

“The basic theme of the song is, ‘Don’t disrespect the caterpillar to praise the butterfly,’” Royce says. “Marshall falls a little bit more into that category than I do, but both of us are caterpillars. A lot of times, you’ll praise these guys but gotta tear us down… but where do you think his style came from?”

Produced by S1 and Epikh Pro and featuring a hook by King Green, “Caterpillar” can be heard below. Check it out and be on the lookout for Book of Ryan—which will include a remix of this song, with, according to Royce, a “shut-the-internet-down-for-a-couple-of-days” type verse from Logic.
