For those that care, I thought I'd share some sad news today. Proof, Eminem's close friend and emcee from the rap group D-12, was shot and killed in Detroit lastnight. Fellow D12 member Bizarre is reportedly "unaccounted for" at this time also. There is mention of a second person being shot and in critical condition.

More details: http://sohh.com/articles/article.php/8717

I designed the man's fucking website. This is just fucked. I found out this morning at like 4Am and thought it was just a bad and late April Fools joke.

I even had to break the news to my friend/business associate that was good friends with him this morning. This shits just I dunno. Proof was one of the better people out there. Always nice to fans and everyone.

Proof was "Lil' Tic" in the movie 8Mile. Mekhi Phifer's character - Future - is actually the movie version of Proof.

It is rare for an artist to even shake hands with fans, but Proof was there with them, involving everyone. He setup contests, chatted on the board, had a drinking contest with a British dude to see who can drink a glass of beer the fastest, invited fans over to video shoots, etc. He was just one of the better guys out there.

RIP.

Yeah, I met him a few times... Really was a genuinely nice guy.

1st time I met him was up in Seattle at the Summer Jam concert... We were backstage, I walked up to D12 and said "hey, I'm Chris, part of a street team from Portland. We have been promoting your album (yada yada yada)" He responds with "yeah man, I remember you... You are that dude from lastnight who was trying to fight with me... man, this guy needs his ass kicked"

I kinda just sat there speechless, I was like "uhhh, no no, thats not me, I didn't see you lastnight" He just started crackin up laughing along with the rest of D12 and he just said "man, I'm just fuckin with you, you cool bro" Then he sat and talked to me for a little bit. Was very appreciative of what we had done with the promoting of their album. He will def. be missed.

Hope you don't mind me stealing your graphic there Mr. Stephens had to throw it up on my myspace.

One of the weird thing was I've never been a huge fan of D-12 but have always enjoyed them. For some reason this morning, not knowing about the murder, I put on D-12 World getting ready this morn. Hadn't listened to it for at least a year. Will have to go home and dig up Devil's Night.

it only sucks if you like hip hop, i dont so it could be a joyful day for me that another stupid "hip hop"/ "rapper" is gone. the sad part is that another person of that sort is going to take his place.

i hate rap and most hip hop, and i especially hate it when you idiots play that crap loudly at a stop light, like your going to win a contest or something. turn that shit down. 90% at the light dont even want to hear it.

i hope your cars all vibrate apart from the stupid subs you put in the trunk.

You're one ignorant fuck. I really mean that. You have no idea who Proof was, nor do you know what kind of person he is. He was truly a genuinely good person, so whatever bullshit stereotype you have cooked up, it does not apply here.

Just leave out of the thread. Could a mod please delete these two posts to avoid any further conflict, because it is truly not needed?

fucking ridiculous comment. it has nothing to do with paying respects to Proof, which is what this thread is about.

i swear cowards make comments like that only on the internet...

regardless of what he chose to do with his life you dont speak ill of the dead. that is just inhumane and it shows no compassion

...but i cant sensor what you say or i would just be a hypocrite. karma will one day find you.

That is some of the most ignorant bullshit I have ever heard! How'd you like us wishing one of your favorite musicians dead. I don't like the sound of guitars so I should wish death upon every rock band?

Hey 6 medic, if you're going to put it out there for all to see that you are in my Army, you'd better either learn tolerance....or learn to keep your ignorance to yourself. Grow up, SPC. That was a disgraceful post. Anyways....the whole thing is a tragedy....I'm not that much into hip hop, but I know alittle about Proof...and it seems that he was very well respected, and well liked by those who knew him. RIP Proof.

No, I don't mind at all... Please use it if you want

no, I never got a chance. knew of the site and visited a couple times

I choose to not respond to the ignorance displayed by 6medic with more hatred or assholeness (other than typing this). I'm kind of in shock to the fact that someone actually came into a thread like this to say such downright rude and disrespectful things... wow. :nono:

I hope your mom spanks you tonight before she puts you to bed. :zzz:
