  • D12 History Q's

    I have a few questions I would love to get cleared up for me regarding D12

    1. When were they founded?
    2. When did Eminem join (before/after Bugz' death)?
    3. When did they all come up with their "alter egos" (they say M&M was an original member of a group that was supposed to have "alter egos" but "Slim Shady" wasnt invented until 1997: 7 years after they allegedly were formed?
    4. Why would Bizarre join the group in 1990 (if thats when the idea was created) if he was only 10 years old (he was 18 when AOTW EP came out in 1998)?
    5. Was "Slim Shady" created because the members each needed an "alter ego" or was it because he just stopped givin a fuck after Infinite bombed, or was it both of these reasons?
    6. Was D12 formed as a group that was supposed to have "alter egos" (I ask this because I have heard D12 was supposed to actually be 12 battle rappers from the days of the "Hip Hop Shop": former grouop members: EyeKyu/Fuzz/Baretta/Killah Hawk/Dirrty Ratt/B-Flat?
    7. Why did the group at one point only have 5 members (with "alter egos" they would only be D10)?
    8. Why were they always on/off/on/off until finally settling into a group in 1999 after Slim Shadys deal?

    I Really Hope Someone Knows At Least Some Of These Questions, Thanks!

        The group d12 started around 95-96, by proof. There were suppose to be 12 members, but relationships went sour & 6 remained. The alter ego thing came as a gimmick to explain the name.(because it still does't make any sense to me). Em was an original member, but wasn't going to be in the group since his career had taken off. After bugz death, he joined.

            ^^ Like i said "thats just what I heard" Em probably had the idea for a few years before he used it as a Alias

                        Bizarre raps since he is 7 ... so whats the deal ... they were all young when they start their dreams to be a rapstar ... but to my knowledge was founded D12 in 95 ... the Idea/Concept of D12 was probably earlier ...

                          yeah i heard that em made "slim shady" while takin a shit, in an interview...

                          1. quite a few biographies of d12 say that Bizarre and Proof founded d12 in around 1990 such as mtv.com
                          2. too many sources say different things... i believe eminem was part of d12 until bugz died, and then swift replaced bugz as bugz' last wish was to have swift in the group. that was in 1999, and on this site, someone gave kuniva "We Live This Shit", which was recorded in 1999, released in 2000; and kuniva said somethin like "wow, i thought that shit was lost, it was the first song we recorded with swift when he joined the group".
                          8. probably cuz they all wanted to do their own shit ...maybe. proof was part of 5-ela, swift was in da rabeez, kon artis and kuniva were recording tracks as da brigade, biz was working on his ep, em was doing his albums etc and bugz was also doin other stuff, plus em was with the indigenous tribe briefly.

                              3. I don't think the alter ego thing came about until around 1996 maybe
                              6. No
                              7. I don't think its really important..it was just a name, Dirty Dozen. The alter ego thing is pretty much an excuse for not having 12 members.
