Ketchums sent me some footage of Nickel Nine and The Dirty Dozen reunitng for the first time in a forever live on stage this past Sautrday night. Above is Royce performing his “Let The Beat Build” Freestyle, while “Done Talkin’” and “Plead For Your Life” is under the cut. And hit Ketch’s site for pictures as well.
Brand new D12 (sans Proof and Eminem, so D8?) over Rick Ross’ single. Off their upcoming Return of the Dozen mixtape, dropping May 20th!

It’s been 2 years since the D-12 emcee lost his life over some bullshit. I hate this world sometimes. About 2 months ago I got the honor to meet Proof’s mother. At a Strong Arm Steady video shoot of all places. I was wearing my fallen soldiers shirt (it has the last names of all the fallen rappers in the game). She grabbed my hand and pointed at Holton “that’s me” I was confused and just smiled. Then she asked if I knew who it was. It’s Proof of course. “Yes that’s me, I’m Proof’s mother.” As short as that was, it was touching and something I’ll remember for life. Rest in peace Deshaun Holton.

I got this email last night with these news cuts from D-12 member Swifty McVay. But like most, it got lost in the shuffle. It’s hard as shit to keep track of emails when you get dozens upon dozens daily. Dah well. These three tracks will be featured on his upcoming EP, Underestimated v.1. Shouts to my dude Jason for these! I’m not sure about these, but that could be the Devil’s Night D-12 fan in me talking. It won’t ever be the same…
