The EP's title and artwork was revealed sometime in May. It features executive producers Eminem and Mr. Porter, with production from Bangladesh, DJ Khalil, Sid Roams, Havoc, The Smeezingtons, and Supa Dups amongst others. Following the reunion of the duo, recording began in late 2010, when two tracks, "Living Proof" and "Echo" having leaked onto the Internet. The first single, "Fast Lane", released on May 3, 2011, was considered a highlight from the EP, while the second single, "Lighters", was met with mixed reviews.
Hell: The Sequel was met with positive reception. Critics favored the chemistry between Eminem and Royce da 5'9" and their rapping ability as well. The EP debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart with sales of 171,000, being only the third EP in Billboard history (after Alice in Chains' Jar of Flies in 1994 and Jay-Z and Linkin Park's Collision Course in 2004) to top the Billboard Hot 200.
