Detroit's Bad Meets Evil is planning to do some more good in the near future.

Eminem has added Royce Da 5'9", his partner in the rap duo, to his Marshall Mathers Foundation as the charity's Director of Community Engagement and Social Justice Initiatives. In a join statement the two emcees said, that, "It's a question everyone should be asking themselves right now. How can I do more? We both recognize that by working together to expand the Marshall Mathers Foundation's Mission, we CAN do more. And we can do it quickly, effectively, and with real impact."

In his own statement, Royce (real name Ryan Montgomery), added, "I'm super excited about not just donating money but launching new initiatives. My goals are simple. Provide privilege for the underprivileged and 'm honored to team up with Eminem to do so."

Bad Meets Evil formed during 2008 and has released one album, 2011's "Hell: The Sequel," which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Rap charts and was certified gold. The duo has also released a number of individual songs. Royce worked with Eminem on the latter's latest album, "Music to Be Murdered By," which came out in January

In addition to that album, Eminem also celebrated the 20th anniversary of his "The Marshall Mathers LP" this year, and he's teased a commemoration for the 10th anniversary of his album "Recovery," with news expected soon. Royce released his own new album, "The Allegory," during February.
