  • Summary: The Eminem-led collective (whose 2001 debut was a huge commercial success) returns with a second full-length, with production from the likes of Dr. Dre, Mr. Porter, Eminem and Kanye West.

  1. It's Em's show, for sure, and being surrounded by a talented, fast-talking crew has made him even more engaging than he is on his own.
  2. Shock tactics and chest thumping still predominate, but satirical cuts... give this spit session much-needed polish. [30 Apr 2004, p.162]

    Legitimizes the D12ers as much more than simply Eminem's funky bunch. [Jun 2004, p.157]
  4. They have made an art of mediocre rap over above average tracks.
  5. Like Get Rich or Die Tryin', only not as good, D12 World works as a polished dramatization of a lifestyle nobody really lives.
  6. A likable ensemble effort, slopping over with infectious choruses and political incorrectness.
  7. This record is about as bad it is possible for a record to be. It is offensive on every level - the music is bad, the rapping is bad, the sleeve is bad.

    A sillier continuation to Devil's Night. Nontheless, many of the tracks are entertaining, and my specific praise goes to the emotional Good Die Young, where the members of the group pay their respects to fallen friend Bugz. An almost complete disconnection to the rest of the album, which focusses mainly on comedy and light-hearted misogyny. Bizarre's Just Like You track is particularly...well, Bizarre. At least he's living up to his name. Expand

    This album was ok but ppl like Bizarre & Kuniva didnt deliver. Other rappers like Proof, Eminem, Kon Artist & Swift Were good. But some songs were just so bad Expand
