Eminem may be ready to release new music as a member of D12.
A former Eminem producer, Mark Bass, recently said he’s mixing new music by D12 in a Detroit Free Press article published January 19.
“Bass, who has started a label called Motunes Media, says he’s also been mixing new material by the mercurial funk-pop giant Sly Stone with members of the original Family Stone band, along with new D12 tracks, including three with Eminem,” the article says.
D12, which featured Eminem, Proof, Bizarre, Kuniva, Swifty McVay and Mr. Porter, has released two full-length studio albums by way of Interscope and Shady Records. In 2001, D12 released its debut album, Devil’s Night. In 2004, D12 released its most recent album, D12 World.
“For me, this is the most important song off the record,” Eminem said at the time during an interview with Shade45, as per MTV. “It’s a dedication to Proof. It is one of those records that I tried … I had several attempts at making. Every attempt just wasn’t good enough. It was one of those things, I tried a bunch of records and it just didn’t work. Like, ‘This is not good enough, the rhyme’s not crazy enough, the beat’s not crazy enough.’ When I finally got it, I felt like, ‘Thank you, thank you, God for just giving me the strength to be able to write this record and make it feel like it does.'”
