:: Breaking Newz ::

This morning at 4:30am, rapper Proof of D-12 was shot and killed outside Detroit nightclub Triple C. Born Deshaun Holton, the 32 year old was taken to Holy Cross Hospital where he was pronouced dead on arrival. Another man, 35, also involved in the shooting is now said to be in critical condition, after both himself and Proof received gunshots to the head. Most known as a member of Eminem's group D-12, Proof was a prominent and legendary figure in the Detroit rap scene. Not one to duck and dodge his PJ's once he hit big, Proof was often found hosting MC battles at Detroit's Hip Hop Shop. After dropping D-12's debut Devil's Night in 2001, followed by D-12 World in 2004, Proof went on to release his debut solo effort, Searching For Jerry Garcia just last year. This MC will truely be missed.

******RIP Proof******

This is a shame, I just read about this an hour ago. I always thought that aside from from Eminem, Proof was the only one in D12 with some skills. That toy soldiers video was an eerily accurate picture of things to come. I never heard his album, was it any good?
RIP for sure.

I heard his album, and although I usually listen for some crazy shit like metaphors, this kid was pretty good, his album is pretty nice as well, wish he didn't leave, would've been great if the others in D-12 left, but not this one, I guess the good DO die young, R.I.P. Proof, ahead of your time, pana
