Flashback: D12 on People Thinking Eminem Was Black After First Listening to Him

In 2015 Bizarre, Kuniva, and Swifty McVay spoke exclusively to VladTV about the formation of D12, as they revealed that it was late Detroit rapper Proof who came up with the idea for the group. When speaking about how they all met, Kuniva explained that there was a clothing store—The Hip Hop Shop—that hosted open mic cyphers for rappers that they all attended. 

Swifty added that the store was where they met Eminem, who blew them away with his skills, and he later ended up joining D12. Speaking more about Eminem, Kuniva said that a lot of people mistook the “Lose Yourself” lyricist for Black when he first released The Slim Shady LP, and he added, “it was extra crazy” when they found out he was a White rapper. Check out more of what D12 had to say during the above interview, including other rappers who came up at The Hip Hop Shop.
