D12 rapper Proof shot dead and Detriot nightclub

What a waste of talent. I’m not into rap, but nevertheless.

Detroit rapper Proof, a longtime friend of Eminem, was shot to death early Tuesday at an after-hours nightclub.

Proof, seen here at the 2004 MTV Europe Music Awards, was among Detroit’s most renowned battle rappers.
Dennis Dennehy, a publicist for Interscope Records, announced the death of the rapper in a statement.

“Memorial service arrangements are still being made, and his friends and family would appreciate privacy during this difficult time,” he said.

The 32-year-old Proof, whose real name is Deshaun Holton, was a member of the D12 rap collective and was best man at hit rapper Eminem’s wedding in January.
