Album Review

It's tempting to dismiss D12's debut album, Devil's Night, as exploitative juvenilia, similar to how fellow Detroit hardcore rap acts such as ICP and Esham had been treated in the past. In fact, it's hard not to dismiss this album as shock rap because that's exactly what it is — there's no denying it. As witty as Eminem may be — and he's by far the most creative member of the group — the countless forays into theatrical perversity far outnumber the more literate moments. But to dismiss the album strictly because of its themes would be unfortunate. As challenging as it may be for many to stomach the constant and incredibly explicit sex, violence, and drug references, there is a stunning album lurking beneath that deserves recognition. Functioning as the album's executive producer and as the producer for most of the album's beats, Eminem has done a wonderful job crafting this album and its foreboding feel. Influenced by the style of sparse beats Dr. Dre employed on Eminem's past solo hits, the troublemaking MC's beatmaking steals the show here, particularly on the album's standout moment, "Purple Pills." In fact, Eminem's beats often contest the couple equally impressive tracks that Dre contributes. Besides the remarkable production, Eminem also showcases his songwriting genius on several of the song's hooks, bringing a catchy pop-rap approach to hardcore lyrics. Yet no matter how accomplished this album is from a production and songwriting angle, it's impossible to look past the disturbing lyrics, especially those of Bizarre, and also Eminem's moments of unnecessary instigation. This album is obviously targeting those with a taste for perversity. If that means you, then you'll love this; if that doesn't mean you, then the album is still worth investigating, if only for Eminem's show-stealing performance as not only an MC but also as an adept producer and songwriter.

R.I.P. PROOF

DeShaun 'Proof' Holton 1973-2006 "They say the good die young" "You don't know where to begin when you lose somebody who's been such a big part of your life for so long. Proof and I were brothers. He pushed me to become who I am. Without Proof's guidance and encouragement there would have been a Marshall Mathers, but probably not an Eminem and certainly never a Slim Shady. Not a day will go by without his spirit and influence around us all. He will be missed as a friend, father and both the heart and ambassador of Detroit hip-hop. Right now, there's a lot of people focusing on the way he died. I want to remember the way he lived. Proof was funny, he was smart, he was charming. He inspired everyone around him. He can never, ever be replaced. He was, and always will be, my best friend." - Eminem

Great Album... Great Group... w/o proof however...

who fills the time? Sure, Eminem is the greatest Rapper in D-12, perhaps in all time. Swift- He has good flow and is actually a pretty good rapper. Proof- my favorite after Em... R.I.P. Dawg Kuniva/Kon- ehhhh mediocre. Not particularly good/ Not particularly bad Bizzare- Funny sometimes... but overall im sick of his meaningless lyrics. Without proof the band has lost an essetial member to not only D12, but to the Detroit hip-hop community.

Sick & Stay Tuned (4.5 mics)

Jist as good as any Eminem album and with the help from the group it could be even better. Pimp Like Me is a straight classic from D12 & Em as well but Rae is better on Superman. Anyway point is I can see any D12 member go solo and make a decent album (even Bizzare I mean under Shady Rec.) but this is a great start and I look forward to see more from them. Info Eminem is releasing a new album this fall along with a duet cd with 50 cent & new D12 album coming this spring along with Proof cd.

Wherever rapper Eminem goes, controversy and headlines are sure to follow.
