DeShaun Dupree Holton (October 2, 1973 – April 11, 2006), better known by his stage name Proof, was one of the most talented rappers in Detroit. He was the member of D12 and close childhood friend of Eminem, who lived on the same block, and was often a hype man at his concerts. In 2006, Proof was shot and killed during an altercation at the CCC nightclub in Detroit.
His friends payed the tribute on Social media today. You can check some of them below:
Forever in my heart. 10yrs and it still hurts like it was 10mins ago. You were our heartbeat. I rock this piece more than ANY other piece I own. Because it's worth more than all the jewelry I have ever owned. I'll continue to rep and make you proud. D12 will continue in your name. No matter what. Thank you big bro. Rest easy. #BigProof4ever #straightpathjewlz
Proof told every1 I was his lawyer when I was still in law school. 1 of his greatest gifts was instilling confidence in others. #RIPProof
