Eminem in Shady Records and D12

 Q:   Ask a Question about Eminem in Shady Records and D12       
Eminem was granted his own record label by Interscope, looking on to the success of Eminem in selling of his albums. He and his manger Paul Rosenberg created Shady Records in late 1999. He signed his own Detroit collective D12 and rapper Obie Trice to the label.

Later he also signed 50 Cent through a joint venture between Shady and Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label. And in 2003, he with Dr. Dre signed Atlanta rapper Stat Quo to the Shady/Aftermath roster. Eminem signed DJ Green Lantern to Shady Records who was also the former DJ for Eminem but now he is no longer with Eminem because of dispute with 50 Cent and Jadakiss.

Presently, The Alchemist is Eminem’s tour DJ. Eminem also signed another Atlanta rapper, Bobby Creekwater to his label. In 2006, Shady Records released compilation album, “Eminem Presents: The Re-Up”. It was meant to help launch the new artists such as Stat Quo, Cashis and Bobby Creekwater.

When Eminem was working for “Infinite”, he gathered the group of rappers, which is now in the group D12. D12 stands for Detroit Twelve or Dirty Dozen. The debut album by D12 was “Devil’s Night” and the first single released off of album was “Shit on you”, followed by “Purple Pills”.

“Purple Pills” was renamed to “Purple Hills” because the former was a censored version and was re-written to remove the song’s references to drugs and the sex. Another single “Fight Music” was not as successful in comparison to the first one.

In 2004, D12 released their second album “D12 World”, featuring hit single “My Band”. April 2006 would not be a good time for D12 as one of their members Deshaun “Proof” Holton was killed in a club brawl in Detroit, Michigan, involving U.S. military veteran Keith Bender Jr., who was killed by Proof.

The whole matter is suspected to have been due to an argument over a game of pool. Proof was then allegedly shot by the bouncer Mario Etheridge, Bender's cousin. Eminem and former Detroit Shady Records artist Obie Trice spoke at the funeral.
