  • Searches For Proof Up

    Eight miles from downtown Detroit, 8 Mile Road divides the city and its suburbs. The eight-lane road also marks a barrier of economic segregation. As Motor City's mean streets music scene evolved, 8 Mile became legendary, especially after its famous rapper sons Eminem and childhood pal Proof named their movie after the boundary line.

    The road is also where DeShaun "Proof" Holton allegedly shot at Keith Bender Tuesday, after closing hours at the CCC nightclub. In the exchange of gunfire, a bullet hit Proof. Just months after being best man at Eminem's second wedding, the D12 founder was declared DOA at St. John Holy Cross Hospital.

    Searches for Proof, from Lansing to Miami to Las Vegas, accelerated 14,359%. Queries, especially from teens and young men, poured in for "d12" and "proof shot." They looked for details about his death on "Detroit News," "mtvnews.com," "hip hop news," "BET news," and the "d12 message board," where posts have become eulogies.

    Meanwhile, look-ups continue for the club, the 8 Mile area and movie, and the people left behind. Those include Eminem (+96%) and protégé Obie Trice (+526%), still with a bullet in his head from his own recent Detroit gun encounter. And the music searches have begun, from Proof's last solo album "Searching for Jerry Garcia" to Eminem's "Like Toy Soldiers," the anti-violence song and video that eerily shows a dying Proof caught in a rap battle.

    That's sad that it took something like this to get people to notice Proof.
    With my voice I will vent
    Standing here, hoping that this will be energy well spent
    So no matter how absurd these words get, listen closely
    As this could be the last word I spit

              I think a lot of people did notice Proof.

              I hope his album sells well and his family receive the money.

                It is sad... unfortunate but no ones fault...ive been a fan of Proof since the first D12 album came out...and i think those albums are really underrated they were really nice...anyway ive always felt Proof's style & felt he had the second most skill on Shady behind only Eminem...him and Obie anyway as of recently...it is sad tho because i didnt get his album until the day he died...ive always listened to Proof's stuff & had a couple tracks from his new album but i never came across his album in the downloads section...anyway i downloaded the album, but i wanted to buy it in the store but i didnt find it that day either....i will still look for it tho & will pick it up if i see it just to show support & respect but its sad that i didnt even listen to it when it came out but it's some real quality stuff.

                  i don't think proof wanted to be a major star with lots of fame that's why he was just a normal guy that would talk to his fans always be nice and not really try to grab headlines. he justed wanted people to appreciate his music fame is often too overwelming and if he was a major star it would probly be too difficult for him to go to local clubs etc without being overly hounded.
