Here is some remarkable news for all Eminem lovers. The famous rapper is allegedly working on a new album with D12 since the group last collaborated 10 years ago. Amazing, right?
According to producer Mark Bass, Eminem’s just hit the studio with D12 for a couple of new tracks that will be on their upcoming album.
“The mercurial funk-pop giant Sly Stone with members of the original Family Stone band, along with new D12 tracks, including three with Eminem,” said Bass who produced “Without Me” and “Lose Yourself”. He also said to the Detroit Free Press newspaper that he has already been mixing new material.
Last D12’s record was released in 2004, named D12 World. However, the band has mostly stagnated since the death of Poof in 2006. Before that, the band reached worldwide popularity in the late 90s with the help of Eminem. Their greatest successes were hits Purple Pills, My Band and Fight Music, while both of their albums also hit peaks – Devil’s Night and D12 World.
It’s still unknown whether rapper Bizarre will be part of the reunited group for a new album, since he left them D12 in 2012.
Additionally, some of Eminem’s vinyl The Marshall Mathers LP 2 copies were sold for $2,500 online earlier in the week, so it seems Eminem doesn’t have the intention to give up his title of Rap God.
