D12 at the Gypsy Tea Room? What gives? You'd imagine that the MTV-ruling rap sextet would have no trouble filling up Nokia Live or Smirnoff, especially since they feature that white guy who's named after candy-coated chocolates. Unfortunately, Eminem won't join his Detroit posse in Dallas on Friday, which means the rapper/actor/producer/importer-exporter will have skipped two D12 Dallas shows in three years. Fellow Detroit rappers Slum Village and K104 fave Bonecrusher, with hit single "Never Scared," might pick up the slack, but otherwise, isn't watching D12 without Eminem like watching Public Enemy without Chuck D?
