18+, 21 w/ID to Drink In the post-Motown landscape of Detroit, brothers rocking the mic are still being considered the voice of young America. Yet, instead of dreaming of blue skies and white picket fences, the unruly boys known as D12 create surreal universes of wild times and un ruly rhymes. On their bombastic sophomore effort, D-12 World, this motley crew of versatile style slayers mixes the rowdiness and absurdities of their lives into one potent cocktail. Two years after selling four million copies worldwide of their debut Devil?s Night, these motor city wild boys are on a mission to define themselves in the hectic canon of now-school hip-hop. ?In D-12 World, anything can happen at any time,? Kuniva laughs. ?Devil?s Night was just an introduction, now it?s time for us to really go crazy.? With a lineup that includes sharp tongued Eminem, crazy cat Bizarre, beatmaster Kon Artis, laid-back Swift, chilled-out Kuniva and freestyle king Proof, the D12 posse is already popular. The group?s debut disc received rave reviews in the press. USA Today wrote, ?The garishly funky beats that underpin the diabolically clever wordplay make the album hard to dismiss?their diatribes seem born less of anger and more of disdain for all that?s politically correct.?
