D12 is decent however Bizarre is str8 garbage. As 4 tha most underrated group ever, I don't think so. I think that would prolly be Naughty by Nature.

Yeah...mobb depp are tight lyricist...when you hear tracks like hit it from the back!!,and other ol school hits,you just gotta be like prodigy and havok is da shit.........And at the same time you just got to give props to New york rappers...because when it comes to rap and hip hop in general,they've always been on another level!!!
yeah hit it from tha back is tight, and I just think both tha albumns The Infamous and Hell on Earth are bangers from tha 1st track to tha last.

yeah tha only reason dre's verse was so hard on Forgot About Dre is cuz Em wrote tha whole song. But yeah exluding Em I would say tha same as SDboy619. Cuz Proof has spit some pretty sick lyrics, my fav verse by him is on 6 Reasons.

D12 is horrible.There are maybe 3 good songs on devils night.The best group from Detroit is Slum Village by far over D12.
Proof is decent I have to admit but those other 4 are horrible especially bizarre.The other three sound exactly a like too.

I dont know I was looking foward to devils night for a while before it came out.Eminem is one of my favorite rappers from Detroit(if not my favorite) and I always liked proof from the underground stuff I had heard but devils night was the one of the most disapointing albums in rap history.The album had potential but they fall back on shock rap and thats my main critism of D12.But I actually never gave "D12 World" a try.I might buy it tommorow and see if its any better.

Believe me devilz night is a good album,thats what d12 personifies,d12 is like an alter ego group so falling back on shock rap,wasn't a wrong move...if you notice when em is in the group,he answers slim shady...Men what is you saying,you mean,
you don't like:DEVILZ NIGHT,BLOW MY BUZZ,PIMP LIKE ME,PISTOL PISTOL,THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU,PURPLE PILLZ,GIRLZ,REVELATION,AMONGST OTHER TRACKS...men i love this album,i am a big fan of their work,and i mean ,the black guys and not eminem!!!
I liked these songs
Purple Pills
It Aint nothing but music
and girls but thats only because I hate limp bizkit.
I dont know its just that bizarre ruins just about every song.I really dont see why he is in the group he is horrible.
There is another Detroit rap group that I like and there also better than D12.I cant remember the groups name.I just remember Loe Louis being the lead mc.He is one of my favorite Detroit rappers of all time.And I also though eminems work with royce da 5'9 called bad meets evil is better than D12.They didnt do to together but what they did was brillant.

yeah no disrespect to Proof (R.I.P.) but Royce was a solid MC back then and stood a way better chance lyrically wit Em then anyone in D12 did. It's a damn shame Bizarre got in tha way of them and they split, cuz Bad Meets Evil had potential man.

True.Proof was good his voice was distinct,he could flow well,and had some good punchlines but Royce is 3x the mc that proof was.Royce rhyme scheme,flow,lyricism,storytell ing,and all that are perfect and he is one of the all-around greatest mcs outta Detroit.
For me my top 5 Detroit mcs is like this.
5.tie:Loe Louis and Guilty Simpson
4.Blade icewood
3.Elzhi
2.Royce da 5'9
1.Eminem
Thats how my Detroit top 5 would go.

yeah Royce did have a very unique rhyme scheme and flow and it's hard to understand 4 some people but if u understand lyrics well enuff to notice it then you're able to see how much of a genius Royce used to be. Unfortunately none of his albums after Death is Certain were really that good, however Death is Certain is a great album.

I agree with that.Royces best years are clearly behind him.

Yeah royce is tight and if you ask me he is a bit mature than proof lyrically,he is almost as good as the likes of mos def and common....but im still insisting dtwizzy are my homeboyz,much luv and respect to the whole crew asides idiotic bizzare!!!
Okay maybe D12 isnt as bad as I make em out to be but there not underrated.And I dont even think proof is even near the same quality as royce.Proof is the 2nd best rapper in D12 and he is okay at best.

Black Milk is also good think of him as number 7.
But right now thats my top 6(its technically 6 being that I handed number 5 a tie between loe and guilty).Ode to the Ghetto Guilty Simpsons(my number 5 guy)new album was kinda a disapointment but a good album nontheless.Especially considering how wack hip-hop has been in 08.If you havent bought ode to the ghetto I recomend it.Its a good indy release.You can buy it on itunes so its not to hard to find.

no, royce isnt as good as proof lyrically, nowhere near....royce is mediocre, his punchlines are most of the time jus babble, and he cant kepp up his rhyming consistantly....proof on the othe rhand has it all, humour, agression, poetry, story telling, references....proof top 10 most underrated of all time
D12 are mediocre, not a huge fan......

proof unsigned hype 1999
2nd blaze battles, lost by 1 point 1998

most *CREATIVE* hip hop album ever - sEARCHING FOR JERRY GARCIA

royce da 5'9 one aight album, one good mixtape....proof is a far superior lyricist to him....not an opinion, its a fact, read there lyrics not listen....and you will see, then listen to the flow, proof is always on top of the beat. royce jus manages to not get underlayed....and u will see why proof has more street cred, and industry cred as an MC than royce......proof is way more talented at rapping than royce......dickriders jus ride royce cos he underrated and was outhsine dby eminem, so what....proof and eminem both deserve more recognition for bein better MC's. not an opinion if osmeone has better lyrical skill than another or better flow...come on.....!!!!!1
