D12 was formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1996 by rapper Proof, who invited other local rappers to be part of a collective. This included Bizarre, Da Brigade members Mr. Porter, Kuniva and Bugz. In 1999, Bugz was killed which led to Eminem volunteer as a replacement for Bugz. His last request was for rapper Swifty McVay to join the group.

The collective have only released two albums. Signed to Eminem’s Shady Records, their debut, ‘Devil’s Night’ was a commerical success, reaching the Number One spot on the US Billboard 200 chart. The album had 372,000 sales in its first week.

2004’s ‘D12 World’, which turns 20 next year, also scored the Number One spot on the US Billboard 200 chart with 544,000 copies being sold in the US in its first week. The album is home to the track and lead single ‘My Band’ which was commercially successful as well.

‘My Band’ reached the top spot in Australia and on the US Rhythmic Top 40, the Top 5 in the UK and Germany, and Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it one of the group’s most successful songs to date.
