The group was a loose collective in the vein of Wu-Tang Clan. The original concept of D12 was to have 12 of Detroit's most talented rappers. .However, Eminem, Proof, Eye-Kyu, Bizarre and the other members at the time were unable to find 12 rappers who were good enough.^ D-12's Proof Shot and Killed in Detroit Rapper Proof of the hip-hop group D12 was shot and killed this morning at an illegal afterhours club on Eight Mile, police said.

However, most of those members left the group during the early stages of the group's creation. Proof decided, in order to have 12, the six members would each create an alter-ego. Proof chose Dirty Harry. .At some point afterwards, most-likely early 1997, Eminem created the Slim Shady concept.^ Bizarre words: Fuck the media, I got some suggestions Fuck Marshall, ask us the questions Like who's D12, how we get started (But what about Eminem?

Bizarre became Peter S. Bizarre. Kuniva became Hannz G., which later became Rondell Beene. Denaun became Kon Artis. Bugz became Robert Beck. During 1997, and continuing throughout 1998, several members began making names for themselves in Detroit. Bizarre was named Inner City Entertainment's "Flava of the Week". He went on to release an album called Attack of the Weirdos and become an honorary member of The Outsidaz with Eminem, Rah Digga and Young Zee. Proof won a freestyling competition run by The Source in 1998. D12 was also seen getting into a fight with three strangers out side a bar in Detroit in 1998 .
Before the group had any success, Killa Hawk and Fuzz left the group. Fuzz in particular did not get along well with Proof (according to Eminem in his book Angry Blonde). .D12 went through many changes during its beginning stages – leaving only four official members: Proof, Bizarre, Eminem and Eye Kyu for a long while.^ D12 gathered initially in 1990, but only achieved mainstream success when its most accomplished member - Eminem, had risen to international fame and notoriety.

Rise to fame

After he recorded an independent EP called The Slim Shady EP in 1997 that caught the attention of famed rap producer Dr. Dre and Interscope CEO Jimmy Iovine, and he was quickly signed to Aftermath/Interscope. Eminem stuck to his pact, and Dr. Dre once stated that while making The Slim Shady LP, his debut album, he kept insisting that he go back to sign the others. Dr. Dre told him to first establish himself as a solo artist, then go back for his friends.
In 1999 he released his hit debut The Slim Shady LP and quickly rose to super stardom as The Slim Shady LP went on to sell four million copies in the United States. Having taken Dre's advice, he had established himself as a solo artist and decided it was time to gather his friends. .As a way to establish D12, he created Shady Records under the Interscope imprint.^ Shady Records , Interscope Records .

At St. John Health's Conner Creek Campus, he was pronounced dead on arrival shortly thereafter.[9] He was buried on April 19 in The Fellowship Chapel, Detroit, to a full house of 2,660 with thousands mourning outside.[10]

Swift's incarceration

On April 21, 2006, Swifty was arrested in Novi, Michigan, after he failed to appear in court. He skipped the court date to attend fallen group-member Proof's funeral, where he served as an honorary pallbearer. Swift was on probation from a drunk-driving case and served two days in jail in October 2005 for failing a drug-test when they found alcohol in his blood stream. Swift was sentenced by District Court Judge Brian MacKenzie to 93 days in jail for violating terms of his probation. His incarceration stalled the recording process of D12's third album, and prevented him from appearing in magazine interviews or being reached for comment on Proof's death. He was then released and worked on the third D12 album.

Third album

As of March 4, 2010, D12 have started work on their third studio album [11]

However, a beef did not ensue until Source co-owner, Ramond 'Benzino' Scott, released a diss track aimed at Eminem, and granted his own rap group's album "4/5" mics, as well as a front page cover on the magazine. .A beef quickly ensued, where Eminem, along with Shady Records artists, 50 Cent, Obie Trice, and D12 ripped apart The Source's credibility, citing that nowadays with Scott as the owner, the magazine was corrupt.^ Another Eminem affiliate, Obie Trice, was shot and wounded New Year's Eve while driving along the Lodge Freeway.

[12] Competing Hip Hop magazine, XXL also became entangled with the feud, and eventually Scott retired (unofficially fired) from The Source. Since then, Benzino has attempted to discredit the reputation of Eminem and other upcoming artists such as Slaughterhouse and Shady Records by leaking racist comments made by a youthful Eminem. Eminem's last known response to Benzino was on the track, Like Toy Soldiers[13]

Everlast/Limp Bizkit

.In the early 2000s, Eminem was notified while on the Anger Management Tour that former House Of Pain member, Everlast, had mocked him on a song.^ The Anger Management Tour (DVD, NTSC) .

Everlast claimed that while passing by Mathers in a hotel lobby, Mathers gave him a "weird look."[14] Taking offense to this, Eminem and D12 quickly began work on a retaliatory song, "Quitter." .It was reported that long-time friends of Eminem, group Limp Bizkit, were meant to be featured on the song, but Fred Durst canceled at the last moment.^ It has been a long time since our last post...

The record continued its release without featuring Limp Bizkit, causing the Everlast-Mathers dispute to continue. In a TRL interview, Limp Bizkit member, DJ Lethal, made a statement that if Mathers and Everlast were to fight in real life, Everlast would win. This angered Eminem to the point of rage, and an insulting track aimed at both Everlast and Limp Bizkit appeared on D12's mainstream debut, Devil's Night, as the track "Girls." Recently, things seem to have settled, and Eminem has no longer been heard insulting Everlast or Limp Bizkit. It is currently unknown if the dispute is resolved.[15]

Chart success

.Their debut album, Devil's Night, referring to the old Detroit tradition of setting abandoned buildings on fire the night before Halloween, was released in June 2001. It debuted at number one on the U.S. and British charts, also reaching the top of the Canadian charts.^ General Glen's Showdown will be released at Origins on June 29 - we have a booth, right across from Dwarven Forge, and we are running games from Wednesday night to Sunday at noon.

Devil's Night went on to sell four million albums worldwide and two million in the U.S. It featured the following hit singles:
  • "Purple Hills" (the clean version of "Purple Pills") reached the top twenty on the Billboard 100 and number one on the rap tracks charts in 2001 as well as number two in the UK and the top ten in Australia.
  • "Shit on You" reached the British top ten and the Canadian top five.
  • "Flight Music", (the clean version of "Fight Music"), featuring Ice T, Angie Martinez, Fat Joe,in its music video, reached the British top twenty and the Australian top forty.
The group's second album was D12 World released on April 27, 2004, featuring production by Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kon Artis and Kanye West, and guest appearances by Obie Trice on the track "Loyalty", and B-Real of Cypress Hill on the track "American Psycho II". It debuted at the top of the U.S., UK, and Australian album charts, and number two in Germany — selling over half a million records in its first week of release in the U.S. alone. "My Band", the album's first single, was also successful reaching number one in Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. rhythmic top forty, the top five in the UK and Germany, and the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100.

Appearances in film

The members of the group have also, on occasion, turned to acting. .Eminem is the lead actor in 8 Mile and has a cameo appearance in The Wash, while Proof also appears in 8 Mile as a freestyle rapper called "Lil' Tic". The group (without Eminem) appear in 2005's The Longest Yard credited as "Basketball Convicts" although at one point Eminem can be heard rapping about football while the convicts are practicing.^ D-12's Proof Shot and Killed in Detroit Rapper Proof of the hip-hop group D12 was shot and killed this morning at an illegal afterhours club on Eight Mile, police said.

A large variety of polyhedral dice can be found in both role-playing and tabletop gaming games.

Dice notation

In gaming rulebooks and documents, dice are usually refered to as d followed by the number of sides on the die. So d6 is shorthand for a common six-sided die. Often, another number is placed before the d to indicate how many dice are to be thrown. So 2d6 means two six-sided dice should be thrown and their results totalled. 3d6+3 means to roll three six-sided dice and add three to the result.
Many computer games use virtual implementations of physical dice rolls behind the scenes to determine the outcome of an action.

Standard die variations

Commonly used numbered dice include d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, d100. The d100, or percentile dice, is often simulated by throwing two ten-side dice after specifying which die represents which digit.
