OMG I’ve been away for couple of days due to the virus my computer had (poor thing I must overworked him), and I just found out that on Proof died on Friday, after he has been shot during a bar fight Tuesday in Detroit.

Here is Supa MC, left, and Mike Eckstein grieve during a news conference at Iron Fist Records.

Eminem on Proof…

"You don’t know where to begin when you lose somebody who’s been such a big part of your life for so long. Proof and I were brothers. He pushed me to become who I am. Without Proof’s guidance and encouragement there would have been a Marshall Mathers, but probably not an Eminem and certainly never a Slim Shady. Not a day will go by without his spirit and influence around us all. He will be missed as a friend, father and both the heart and ambassador of Detroit hip-hop.

Right now, there’s a lot of people focusing on the way he died. I want to remember the way he lived. Proof was funny, he was smart, he was charming. He inspired everyone around him. He can never, ever be replaced. He was, and always will be, my best friend."
