From Detroit to Chilliwack with funky beats

All-star rap outfit D12 is on its way from Detroit to Chilliwack to rock the mic on Jan. 27 at Industry night club.

The all-star rap group D12 is on its way from Detroit to Chilliwack to rock the mic on Jan. 27 at Industry night club.

With a Dirty Dozen lineup that includes crazy cat Bizarre, beatmaster Kon Artis, laid-back Swift, and chilled-out Kuniva, D12 has earned a reputation for funky beats and clever wordplay. Although superstar Eminem has been listed as a member of the D12 posse in the past, he won’t be on this tour.

The group’s first album Devil’s Night established them as one of the super groups of the new millennium with chart-topping singles Purple Pills and Fight Music, with their outlandish antics in studio as well as live.

“We were the All-Star Team of battle rappers,” Kuniva writes online. “And when somebody like Bizarre got in front of the mic, we never knew what he might say.”

The members of the Dirty Dozen or D12 will be joined at the Industry show by Global Syndicate out of Vancouver with DJ Nikky and Special Guests, winner of the 8 Mile freestyle battle.

D12 featuring Global Syndicate, Jan. 27, $30 at Industry on Hocking, Notorious Tattoos or online at
