D12 will release their sophomore set, D12 World, Tuesday (April 27). The set features guest appearances from Obie Trice and B-Real and the production of Eminem, Kon Artis, Dr. Dre, Kanye West, Red Spyda, Sicknotes, and Trackboyz.
The group’s 2001 debut Devil’s Night was certified platinum for sales of a million copies. When LAUNCH spoke to group member Proof, he predicted that the group will sell twice as many records this time. He said: “I think we gonna double what we did last time. Not that I want to speak on it or jinx it or nothing like that but we gonna do real well. We didn’t plan on making this album to try to beat the last album. We just went and did what we normally do with the formulas that we got.”
Proof also explained that the new album is very diverse and it covers topics that the group didn’t address on their debut. He said: “It’s a very diverse album and it covers what we did last time and with the growth of it, it’s gonna cover a lot more ground that we didn’t get to cover last time.”
The lead single from D12 World, “My Band,” is currently Number Eight on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
