Devil's Night is the debut album by Detroit hip hop group D12, released on June 19, 2001 and executive produced by Eminem, who had recently released his hugely successful second studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP, a year earlier. The album's title comes from the Devil's Night tradition, recognized in and around Detroit. The album produced two singles: "Purple Pills" and "Fight Music" (edited as "Purple Hills" and "Flight Music", respectively). The album featured a hidden track by Eminem called "Girls", which is a diss track aimed at Limp Bizkit, DJ Lethal, and Everlast. Devil's Night was also the first album to be released on Eminem's Shady Records label, although the label has been active since 1999. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 with approximately 372,000 copies sold in the first week released.[1]

Devil's Night 2

In Obie Trice's album Cheers, on the song "Outro" featuring D12, Bizarre mentions at the end of the song "I'll shit on you, I pee on R. Kelly too. This is Bizarre, see you on Devil's Night 2" (the line also references Kelly's scandal involving urinating on an underage girl). Devil's Night 2 is also mentioned on Census Bureau. D12 hasn't confirmed Devil's Night 2, nor has Eminem or Shady Records. It is unknown if it was just a joke or was never made and has not been mentioned since 2003. It was likely a reference to D12's sophomore album, which ended up being named D12 World.
