Product Description

Product Description

Take cover--Eminem and his Detroit crew are back with their second album, D12 World. Production credits and guests include Eminem (executive producer), Dr Dre, Kon Artis and Obie Trice. D12 World follows the platinum selling Devils Night and boasts the single "My Band" as well as "Six In The Morning" (which has been an underground club favourite for months) and "40 Ounce".

BBC Review

In effect, D12 are Eminem's Detroit mates. Handy, if you want to make serious money. Mainly produced by, and featuring, Eminem, it gives you what you'd expect - strong beats, ironic raps and bizarre alter egos. Sadly, it also features a fair share of pathetic shock tactics and soulless noise.

The raps and music of Bizarre, Proof, Kuniva, Mr Porter and Swift are solid, but unsurprising. As they themselves say, all be it ironically, "I know how to rap, it's simple but, all I did was read a Russell Simmons' book".

That said,World features some real ear-catching tracks. "Just Like U"playsa kids' sung chorus against the voice ofa drug-using pimp, adding an unsettling edge to a cutting and nasty cautionary tale. The warped, driving guitar of Dr Dre's "American Psycho II" has a similar story to tell, while "40 0Z" reveals in graphic detail what you'll get if you cross them. Things seem pretty bleak in D12 world - bullying, gun retribution, early deaths and lost friendships - and let's not even start on what it's like for the women.

To get a lift amongst all this darkness, focus on the deadly infectious hook lines and flashes of funkiness. "I'll Be Damned", "U R The One" and Kanye West's "D-12 World" keep it juicy and moving when the sentimental sludge of "Good Die Young" or macho noise of "Git Up" get too much.

D12 can create vivid images through the rhymes, rhythms and licks. Unfortunately the ones that stick in my head are the ones that stick in my throat. There's some really disgusting stuff here, and not a sliver of enlightened thought or vision. However, the true problem with World is that, despite the parody and humour, there's too much of that gun-gang cliché 'our lives are hard, we're hard'. It feels false and dated.The Eminem association may gurantee this album's success, but as the years pass few will remember it as a classic.

Compared to D12's first album Devils Night, D12 World is pretty much more of the same. However Eminem appears on only 11 tracks even though he produced almost all of them. The lyrics are a step up from Devils Night and the whole group seem to be rapping faster than before. (Apart from Bizzare who still just speaks and I think is only included to add some variety to a track). Below I have rated each track and written a brief comment on each of them.
1. Git Up - A great start from Eminem on here, the flow is tight and rapping quick. An above average track -3.5 STARS-
2. Loyalty - Nearly 6 minutes long this track and features Obie Trice with a cutting verse. Again above average but not great and it reminded me of a typical song on Obie's album Cheers.
-3 STARS-
3. Just Like U - A solo track for Bizzare and probably the worst song on the album. Every D12 fan knows Bizzares lyrical skill is awful and he raps (talks) just to shock. The song is about the usual sex and violence but is slow and has a really annoying chorus. -1 STAR-
4. I'll be Dammed - I liked this track, stands out quite a lot from many of the others. Kon Artis is good on this one. Probably the 6th best track on the album. -4 STARS -
5. Skit
6. My Band - The single that you either love or hate. Personally I think it makes a refreshing change to most rap tracks and is the only song to make me laugh (funny video too). My Band is the most unique song on the album and in my opinion is one of the best -5 STARS-
7. U R the One - Poor song. Lyrics are boring and beats repetitive. I skip this all the time. -1 STAR -
8. 6 in the Morning - Great tune! I heard this a while ago and instantly liked it. Great beats and flow make it a rap song you could dance to in a club. Eminem is good on this too.

I think this album is awesome i heard the songs on stream.
Ones that stand out are il be damned, how come, get my gun, b**ch andAmerican psycho 2 which features Cypress Hill.
The album really shows how good all the members are and not just Eminemand after this they might finally get the respect they deserve.
Much better than first album which i also enjoyed, but its better beacausegives them all chance to shine and the beats are all really good aswell.It shows how they've grown as rappers and they can do different types ofsongs and how Eminem has improved his producing skills.
The album shows that D12 can be serious because the song Good die young isabout their friend that died bugz and shows a different side to D12.
A must have album

Firstly let me preface this by saying that D12 are a group, and not just Eminem with a few other guys. Although Eminem is undoubtedly the most well-known member and probably the most gifted, each member has their own particular virtues and downfalls, and the way D12 have balanced this in their "difficult second album" is really interesting. I'm going for a track by track review, as I think that's the best way to review albums, before summarising.
1. Git Up - This is such a catchy beat and such a well chosen song to begin the album. Em has a very long first verse which never lets up for a second, followed by Swifty and Kuniva following directly after each other. The beat on this is great, and its nice to hear Em rapping so quickly and fluidly, and overall its one of the best tracks on the album - its only downfall is that it doesn't go on for longer, as it would be nice to hear from at least Kon Artis on this track! 10/10
2. Loyalty (feat. Obie Trice)- Another great beat on this track, Kon Artis' chorus is catchy, and this is probably one of Bizarre's best tracks. The verse from Obie is great. Swifty's verse feels a bit too similar to Git Up, and its nice to hear the whole group on the track, Kuniva and Kon Artis share the first of a few verses across the album, and Proof's lyrics are nice and Sharp. 9/10
3. Just Like U - This is Bizarre's solo track, the only solo track on the album. It's my least favourite track on the album, initially I liked it but have really gone off it. Bizarre has a pretty good flow, but he can't rap quickly which really shows not only on this and some other tracks. If your easily offended, this is the one that'll make you put down the album. 4/10

The latest offering from Eminem the Producer is D12 World, and has a good mix of sounds going for it. There's the relatively chilled U R Da 1 through to the comical My Band, and all the way back to 40oz with its aggression and violence.
What's different in this album to that of, say, Devil's Night, which most people hail as the "Classic D12 Album", is that in almost every track, no matter how much the crew go on about sex, drugs, violence and guns, you can hear the laugh the rappers are blatantly having. At us? With us? At themselves? To be quite honest, I don't care who they're laughing at. D12's linguistic skill, whatever their morals, can't be ignored.
There's something about ho's, drugs and guns in every song - which might just start to get repetitive after a while if it wasn't for the many different ways the group manages to express it. Each track is different and distinct and the aggression spilling over into the lyrics is something I find refreshing. These guys are expressing themselves in the way they choose and their popularity and album slaes are a testament to their skills.
Eminem's voice in particular has grown and grown in maturity. Cast your minds back to the Marshall Mathers LP, and the Slim Shady LP. Remember how nasal and whiny and high pitched he sounded? Well, no more, and quite honestly I'm relieved. He's a better rapper now than he's ever been. Even Bizzare, whose lyrics reflet his name, has a beat all of his own and is a talent to himself.
That said, the skits get more and more annoying as you get through the album. They're done in good humour, true, but don't really serve any purpose, particularly the My Band skit. Boring and useless.
All in all, the album is very different to Devil's Night...but that don't make it a bad album. Sit in your car, kick up the bass and drive.............
