what the *uck ever happened to d12?

In the midst of cleaning the great iTune blowout of 2008, I’ve been running across many forgotten tunes – including “My Band” by D12.

You remember D12 right? Eminem’s group of buddies from Detroit who got together to make the most formidable group of rap talent the U.S. has ever assembled. To those, like me, who only loosely pay attention to hip-hop, it would seem this group came and went pretty quickly.

In fact, that is hardly the case. I went to Wikipedia to find out whatever happened to them. It ended up being some of the most interesting band history I’ve read there. Who knew they’ve actually been around for 18 years and are far more of a separate entity from Eminem than it would have seemed.

No reason to recite the story when it’s already written here, but I found it interesting that while Eminem was in on the ground floor of this, and he left them behind pretty quickly, but was loyal enough to pull them along after he found fame.

I thought it was an interesting story. While you’re reading, you can remind yourself of this great little MTV video hit (you know, back when the “M” stood for “music”)…

    Yea back when the “M” stood for music, Now it’s a bullshit station, that i wouldnt watch if it was the only show left on t.v

    Eminem is a sell out bitch, Proof and him were like brothers, That fame took his as quick.
    He writes songs saying i miss u, but if he did, he woulda took him with him.
    Eminems music is just for hype.,pain pills, ect.. shit aint crack homie

    Recovery, Relapse, wtf is that? sounds like some wanna be pac and big shit, startin up controversy for more record sales, cuz before his big break down, the last hit he had was what..

    will the real slim shady please stand up? get the fuck outta here

      Now you gotta a point with D12 and Eminem and Proof, But like you have no idea what eminem has gone through ok, like yes they were like brothers and when proof died, Eminem must have felt like shit and guilty. why do you think he made that song ‘Toy soildier’ like that took him a while to make you know, One reason why D12 is not D12 is probily because the beef they had with that one guy, they probily just didnt want that same them to happend to them agian so they just broke up. Plus when he made his last album recouvery, that was mostly about his life and shit he gone through with it like his wife kim, his daughters and dre and alot of other shit. like alot of stuff must go through his mind. Although i like the points you got about them and everything, like i wish D12 was still.. D12!, but like i say. shit happends.. and in this case ALOT of shit happend. so yeah
