On Monday (Jan. 16), Royce Da 5'9' earned the highest praise from his Bad Meets Evil partner Eminem after the rapper demolished his freestyle over DJ Khaled's "I Got the Keys."

In a text message from Marshall Mathers (whose name is saved as "Goat") that he shared on Instagram, the Slaughterhouse MC was showered with respect and admiration from the "Rap God." "Really?," wrote Slim Shady. “Ur an a--hole. Those f--kin freestyles u put out r devastating. Incredible. I hate u. Die.”

This is the second time this month Royce has delivered a fiery freestyle. He previously tackled Phresher's "Wait a Minute." On "I Got the Keys," he spit a handful of memorable punchlines.

"I’m what you’d get if Fetty Wap were to rob a marksman/ With Robert Markman, a dead eye Genius/ A Jedi demon, he sip promethazine, I bet I lean him/ I made a million, I ain't sell out, I just got the hell out Neiman's" he feverishly raps. 

The last time Eminem and Royce Da 5'9' teamed up was for Bad Meets Evil's 2011 collaborative debut album Hell: The Sequel. The album soared to No. 1 on the Billboard 200
