As if releasing two albums in one year isn’t enough, Eminem is also planning to reunite his Detroit crew, D12, and release the first new album from the group in five years.
Slim Shady said on BET’s “Rap City: The Relapse” special on Friday that D12 are planning to hit the studio soon to begin work on the disc. The yet-unnamed album from the crew will be their first since the death of member Proof three years ago, a death that Eminem has said caused him to go into a depressive spiral of drug use.
“Me and the guys, we got a bond, it’s special,” Em said of the group, which also includes Bizarre, Kon Artis, Kuniva and Swifty. “It’s like, as far as the future of D12, we’re gonna be back in the studio soon.”
D12 have released two albums, 2001’s Devil’s Night and 2004’s D12 World. Part of the reason Eminem said he decided to reform the group for a third album was because of his respect and love for Proof, who was his best friend and one of his biggest supporters when the then-unknown D-Town MC was trying to make a name for himself.
“Right now, my music would probably be the same [if Proof was still alive],” Em said in the “Rap City” interview. “I think this is what Proof always wanted, was for me to go crazy again. My life would be different because I would still have him.”
D12 reunited for a one-off performance last month to celebrate the release of Em’s Relapse album.

Drake hasn’t actually signed with a label yet, but he’s working on an upcoming album, like everyone else on the tour.
He said, quote, “I think it will be an exciting night for each city that we go to. You got two young guys that have been killing the game for a minute, so I think it will be a dope tour.”
KELIS has filed legal papers claiming that NAS has refused to offer her spousal support, child support, or help with pregnancy-related expenses.
Nas and Kelis were married for six years, and filed for divorce on April 30th, citing the typical “irreconcilable differences.” Their first baby is due July 21st.
Last month, Nas asked a judge to deny Kelis’ request for spousal support and legal costs. And now things just keep getting uglier.
Kelis is asking the judge to order Nas to help . . . and she also specifically wants $3,500 for a nurse after the child’s birth, $20,000 for strollers, cribs, and other baby supplies . . . and for Nas to provide half of all the medical expenses after the baby is born.
She says, quote “My survival is based on his will at this time. If he does not want to pay for an expense, it does not get paid.”
She also claims he’s keeping her jewelry from her, quote, “There were many expensive pieces [of jewelry] such as a princess-cut diamond tennis bracelet that was recently appraised for $190,000.
“My engagement ring is an approximately nine-carat cushion-cut diamond solitaire. I have numerous watches . . . such as Cartier, Rolex, Frank Muller and Chopard.” (???)
