The group was often overshadowed by Eminem's massive success, and toured without him for the second album while Eminem was busy recording Encore. Although shadowed by Eminem's success, other members Bizarre and Proof managed mildly successful solo careers with the releases of Hannicap Circus and Searching for Jerry Garcia in 2005. D12 (minus Eminem) appeared on Tech N9ne's 2002 album entitled Absolute Power on the track "She-Devil". They also decided that Eminem would not be as prominent on their upcoming third album, which remains evident even after Proof's death. Their third album is estimated to be 70% completed without any input from Eminem. However, in June 2009, Eminem confirmed he was also working hard on the group's third studio album on an announcement made on Rap City during an interview with Eminem and Denaun Porter. The group recorded a song for Eminem's album Recovery titled "Hit Me with Your Best Shot", but it was not featured on the official album. It was later featured on Eminem's mixtape Straight from the Lab Part 2.
