D12, D12 World, Shady Records

Westside Connection has Ice Cube, G-Unit has 50 Cent and D12 has Eminem, all three have high powered hip-hop ties, but then why does D12 come off as more of a novelty act? Maybe it’s because of their lead singles “Purple Pills” or “My Band” which by hip-hop standards are light-hearted compared to the gamut of gangster rap out there. D12 World moves D12 away from novelty status, to full-fledged hip-hop unit. There’s nothing important being covered here, just Eminem having a good time with his boys. If you want something fun and light, then welcome to the D12 World.
