D12 World is the second studio album by Detroit hip hop group D12, released on April 27, 2004. The album sold 544,000 copies in its first week on the U.S. Billboard 200. The album is the last D12 album to feature Proof before his death in 2006, and the only D12 album to feature "Bugz" on a track.
In memory of Bugz, who was killed prior to a concert on May 21, 1999, the group recorded the track "Good Die Young" in memory of him. The album also includes a song entitled "Bugz '97", which is a 1997 recording of Bugz, originally taken from the song "Desperados". The album was often overshadowed by Eminem's massive success, and as such, the band toured without him for promotion of the album. At the time, Eminem was busy recording Encore. Although shadowed by Eminem's success, members Bizarre and Proof managed to prevail with mildly successful solo careers following D12 World, with the releases of Hannicap Circus and Searching for Jerry Garcia in 2005. Before the album's release, "6 in the Morning" was featured on Eminem's 2003 mixtape Straight from the Lab and was entitled "Come On In".
