Proof

Born: 1973-10-02 - Died: 2006-04-11
Cause of Death:
Gunshot


Death Summary: Proof was 32 when he shot a U.S. military veteran named Keith Bender Jr. in the face, killing him.

Bender's cousin, Mario Etheridge who was a bouncer at the club where it happened, in turn shot Proof in the head killing him.

This all happened at the CCC Club on the famous 8 mile Road in Detroit that D-12, Proof's rap group (with the help of rapper Eminem) had made famous.

Proof was the second member of D-12 to get shot. The first was "Bugz" who was shot over an argument about a watergun fight at a picnic.

Who was Proof : DeShaun Dupree Holton (aka Proof) was a member of the rap group D-12 (Dirty Dozen), which was made famous by rapper Eminem.

He also had some solo work, but he is best-known for his D-12 membership, whose greatest hit was the song Purple Pill (retitled Purple Hills for the radio).

He also appeared in movies like 8 Mile and The Wash.

  3. Rafael Irizarry Says:

  4. Jen-ka Says:

    I’m doing a school wax museum on you. Theres so much to you. I’v just learned about like everything about you just in 3 days. I cried for you. I’m sorry for the family and friends you lost a great guy. <3

  5. Jake Says:

    Eminem: When you loose someone close to you-

    When you loose someone close to you
    You cant explain the way you feel,
    The way you could just all hang out and never get bored
    Just the way you could all be friends and never fight

    You never got to say your last goodbye to your good mate
    But always remember he is above us all
    Telling us not to grieve and to get on with life
    And live life like he would have
    With passion and pride
    And live it up for your mate because he cant anymore

    But now he is watching from above.

    You would always back each other up
    Everywhere you go you look lonely
    Now I see how much loosing someone means
    I am so sorry I know I cant take your pain away

    When you loose someone remember
    All the good times
    And not the bad ones
    Because that is what matters the most

    You make mistakes in life
    But look-so does everyone else
    So dont look at all the mistakes you made
    Look at the ones you made together and how much fun you had

  6. Hahahahaha Says:

    Watching from above? you mean below, in hell. That repulsive slime. People that support you make me sick. Its just wrong.

  7. lobo Says:

    As is with everybody, your family and direct friends will miss you, but others will see you as a cowardly individual who took anothers life just because you were keeping it real. Someone who was maybe a husband father brother and son, does anyone remember him, I hope his family sues proofs estate to tkae care of anyone he left behind………. You killed a Vet a–hole, hate to say but you got what you deserved…

  8. Josh Says:

    Shoot someone in the face and you get shot in the head….makes sense to me. Just another thug off the street…..you are a piece of s#!t, no one will miss you….

  9. Rasa Says:
