Eminem in D12

In 2001, Eminem brought the rap group he was a member of, D12, to the
popular music scene. In 2001, D12 released their hit debut album
titled Devil's Night. The first single released off of the album was
"Purple Pills," an ode to recreational drug use (although this was
preceded in the UK by a song called "Shit On You", which was included
on the Special Edition version of the album released in that country).
The version of the song released on the radio and music television was
heavily rewritten to remove much of the song's offensive nature, and
retitled "Purple Hills." While the first single was a massive hit, the
album's second single, "Fight Music," was not as successful. Some have
attributed this to the emotional change caused in American society due
to the September 11, 2001 attacks. After their debut, D12 took 3 years
in hiatus from the studio, later regrouping to releasing their
sophomore album, D12 World, in 2004, which featured the popular hit
single release "My Band." The other members of D12 have also appeared
as guests on all of Eminem's albums since The Marshall Mathers LP.
D12's third album is tentatively scheduled for a 2006 release.
