D12 Regroup for First U.S. Tour Since Proof’s Passing

Initially reunited for a one-off performance back in May, D12 will officially hit the road together for the late summer Dazed and Dirty Tour.

Though Eminem will be not be involved, Shady revealed on BET’s Rap City recently that the Detroit collective would be recording their third album sometime in the near future. “It’s like, as far as the future of D12, we’re gonna be back in the studio soon,” he said.

The “Dazed and Dirty” tour will be the first time the group has hit the road together in the U.S. since central member Proof’s passing in 2006. Also featuring Humboldt County hip-hop duo Potluck, the tour kicks off in Scottsdale on August 16 and winds down in their hometown of Detroit on September 26. -Devin Chanda

    While I don’t hate D12 like some (many?) others, they’re not nearly as good without Proof. He & Swifty were head-and-shoulders above the others in terms of rhyming…

    • Gloveson

      yeah they could’ve got by with jus em, proof & swifty……..bizarre and kuniva are shit but kon artis makes some good beats

    • tru predator

      nawww outside of eminem.kuniva and swifty are the tightest.proof fourth,kon artis and then bizzarre.kuniva is a beast.

        “Though Em won’t be involved”

        means

        “No one gives a shit”

  • latino heat

      ummm people who actually have good taste in music and support them.whether proof and em is with them or not on tour.because it doesnt take the talent away they have individually or the fact they still have alot of great songs to perform.i would only be pissed if i was lead to believe em was gonna be thee and then didnt show.

    Due to fact that Michael Jackson was 90@ plastic, he’s gonna be melted down into legos so that kids can play with him for a change.

  • tru predator

    what would be pretty decent is,if d12 does what alot of rappers have been doin when they come to perform in naptown.let local artists open up for them.there are some really talented dudes makin noise in nap right now.

  • tru predator

    ohh and to all the haters sayin d12 is done.you aint shit.you obviously have nothin better to do than hate on something and someone better than you.quit tryin to tarnish their achievements just because one of the members is dead.its disrespectful.

  • Fireforreal

    I’m a Eminem fan and Just like Nelly and A few others rappers I give Em credit for really not forgetting the people he use to spit with earlier in his career but Nobody gives a fuck about D-12 outside of Eminem and the Sales and the fan respone will show that. There okay but they spent too much time just being his silly homies from the hood who you just see as his dumb ass monkey’s smilling for the camera.

    • tru predator

      you couldnt be more wrong.two platinum albums more than prove people care.
