As Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″ prepare for the release of their joint EP Hell: The Sequel (read all about it in our Summer Preview series), the Bad Meets Evil duo have revealed their highly entertaining “Fast Lane” video, which could easily double as a lyric video — if the lyrics were being destroyed and manipulated by the artists as they appear on screen. Watch below.

Ever since Cee Lo Green revealed the lyric video for “Fuck You”, more artists than ever have been releasing their own lyric videos, and have been attempting to find new ways of using a song’s lyrics on screen in a creative way. (See Joe Jonas’ live lyrics video for his single “See No More”, painted in real time by artist Curtis Kulig.) Can’t wait to see how someone tops Em and Royce.

How much unicorns are killing it in 2011 — first they party with Ke$ha in her “Blow” video, a unicorn-inked Lady Gaga name drops them in Born This Way track “Highway Unicorn (Road To Love)”, and now even Royce is chilling with an animated one:
