“[Elzhi] was in it for a minute, but he ended up going off and doing his own thing,” he says toward the end of the clip. “I don’t know if he ever came to a session, but he was definitely down with us. Elzhi, if I’m lying, please don’t strike me down [laughs].”
Bizarre also talked about Proof, who was a part of D12 prior to his 2006 death. As he explained, they were the more tenured rappers in the group but weren’t prepared for the perks that came with being signed to Eminem’s label.
“When we signed with Marshall, it was instant,” he said of the perks. “A couple of guys hadn’t experienced that. Proof was signed to this label Maurice Malone of clothing design. Proof was signed to him and I was signed to Federation Records. We was pretty seasoned. We had that underground experience.
“When we signed with Shady, it was straight private jets, MTV Awards. D12 happened before Eminem. Eminem was in the group from the beginning, it was supposed to be 12 of us, but we could never find 12 dudes to stick with us. So it was six rappers with two different personalities.”
