40 oz

The D12 thugs are back with a brand new song and video : 40 oz. You gotta love this song that puts you in the typical athmosphere of the Detroit underground. « 40 oz » is an ode to beer. Beer that makes the D12 crew act weird and become a real menace to the Detroit clubs.There are explicit references to guns and drugs which belong to the Detroit underground scene.

Bizarre starts rapping and appears as a real menace in the video. Drunk as much as possible, Bizarre is ready to start fighting. He’ ready to start some problems in the club and shows a very provocative side. You’d better be careful :

“We fucked up
let us in the club
One of y’all niggas gon’ catch a slug
I’m so drunk i could hurl for a month
Any nigga pop’s, go to the trunk
D12 start shit, nigga come get us…”

Bizarre reminds people of his roots: 7 Mile Road. One of the scariest place in Detroit:

“7 Mile Runyan, wild niggas wit us
cause all my niggas is talkin’ that shit
Ain’t got no problem, with smackin no bitch
I’ll have my wife, cut your throat
Blunts, gans , that’s all we smoke
Wile the fuck out, stab you with a knife
It’s D12 nigga, we ready to fuckin’ fight…”

Bizarre and Eminem both make a reference to Runyan Avenue at 7 Mile Road.Two other references of this place can be found in D12 lyrics such as “Shit Can Happen” and “Fuck Battlin’” featuring Bugz.
The Detroit underground is very inspirational to many artists. You will find Bizarre’s former track “What What” and Eminem and Swifty ‘s work with Da Ruckus “We shine” on the “Silent Records” website. You will also discover some Detroit underground artists like “Uncle Ill “ on the same website. Check it out:

Eminem impersonates the next drunk thug. Nobody will be secure against him. He is ready to attack you and you’d better react on time :

[Eminem]
Who tryin’ to be the first one to catch this blade in their throat
You know the po-po don’t let me hold them toasters no mo’
I just clapped three people, you gon’ be number four
If you don’t back the fuck up, and get the fuck up off the flo’
My crew is takin over as soon as we hit the do’
You hit the door then we comin’ in and you goin’ home
Security that can’t even stop us because they know
Runyan Avenue soldiers hold it down wherever we go
Suckin on our 40’s and holdin up .44’s
We come with toasters like we just opened saving’s and loans
And we don’t need your brew tonight homie we brought our own
So grab whatever you sippin on and let’s get it on!!!!

Kuniva follows Eminem. He makes a sarcastic comment about the crew’s weapon possession.The security guards will let them in, they don’t seem to handle the situation. They are probably afraid of the drunk Runyan avenue soldiers:

[Kuniva]
”We deep as a muvafucker, we ’bout to get it crunk
you just another punk in the club about to get jumped
I settle my vendettas with AK’s, berettas
We dont supposed to be in here with our weapons but still they let us
Switchblade, brass knuckles, nickel plated belt buckle
Broken beer bottles, when we walk in you can smell trouble
Elbows flying, bitches crying, niggas bleeding, you retreating
Run into your car and skatin off free g-ing
We make examples out of you haters runnin’ your mouth
You the reason why your peoples is pourin their 40’s out
Dirty Dozen wiling, beat niggas bloody
And you gon’ have to pour out a keg for all your homies”

But Proof will probably be their worst nighmare: alcoholic, raised by drunks. He is ready to beef as the real gangsta he is. Blunts and alcohol belong to his crazy way of life and he will heat the beef.
Don’t forget that “because of Proof they put the G in the alphabet”.

It is a matter of fact D12 has often been accused of promoting violence. Little did you know : violence is an every day reality in the Detroit ghetto.
Urban violence in Detroit is something common. It often happens that kids become victims of this violence :

The D12 haven’t created it. They just talk about in their songs.

The « 40 oz » video will make you penetrate in the thug universe of Detroit. An atmosphere that you have discovered through the « Devil’s Night » album and that you have probably enjoyed a lot. As well as they made you appreciate their former work, the D12 crew will make you enjoy their newest ode to beer.

What! What! ………..

[Repeat Chorus]

[Proof]
I was raised by drunks, so I became a drunk
80 Proof on this vodka, that’s the name I want
I’m in the club to beef, you gotta murder me then
Only talk to a bitch with burgundy hair
Or the aisle in the back, bump a seven deuce
See that top on that 40, you know it’s comin’ loose
See me on the Ave. daily, we runnin’ this shit
If your chick get loud, I g-money that bitch
Packin mags and clips, I’ll smash your clique
Because of Proof they put the “G” in the alphabet
Smoking weed, drinking henny, remy, in that Jimmy
Don’t worry if we run out the corner store got plenty
