On this date in 1996, Detroit natives Eminem and Kuniva bumped heads on the microphone at Motown’s famous Hip-Hop Shop, where late D12 member Proof used to host battles in the mid to late 90s.

In his regular undefeated fashion, Mr. Mathers delivered bar after bar, which equated to blow after blow in his win against Kuniva. The brotherhood underneath what appeared to be real beef resulted in Kuniva being one of the members of Shady Records’ premiere group D12.
