  • Mourner article

    Not even half the day had gone by Tuesday and already hundreds of fans, friends and industry insiders had made their way to Detroit's Fellowship Chapel to view the body of Detroit rapper Proof, who was killed last week in a shooting at an after-hours club.

    Many of Detroit’s hip-hop elite, including Paradime and the entire Fat Killahz rap group, attended to mourn the loss of their friend in a very public way.

    Monday night, some of the most famous of Proof’s friends had a private viewing of his body. Friends and bandmates of the rapper — legal name Deshaun Holton — had a quiet moment to catch the first glance of Proof, who was laid inside of a gold-toned casket. Members of D12, including Eminem, where there for the private viewing.

    Rapper Bizarre, also a D12 member, was unable to make it on Monday, and early Tuesday afternoon was brought in through a back entrance of the Fellowship Chapel, and the doors were closed to the public for about 10 minutes.

    Inside the church — cameras were not allowed — Proof was dressed in brown-and-tan athletic wear and his signature Kangol cap, the same kind of outfit he'd wear in music videos or around town. A No. 1 Chauncey Billups Detroit Pistons jersey, autographed by several players, was draped over his body.

    On either side of the pulpit, two large screens showed continuously looped video footage of the rapper in music and concert videos or just clowning around.

    He was surrounded by a huge collection of floral arrangements, including some sent by Geffen Records and Interscope Records, the latter label being the home of D12.

    Detroit Police were a heavy presence inside and outside the church, with about a dozen cops, plus other private security, in the vicinity. Police had said the security was necessary because of Proof's fame.

    A mixture of old and young, white and black — some in T-shirts with Proof's likeness airbrushed on them, some in three-piece suits — congregated outside the church on Detroit's west side, giving hugs, breaking down and consoling each other after viewing their friend, family member or favorite rapper.

    “It doesn't seem real, said Marv Won of the Fat Killahz. “He was Superman. How do you kill Superman?”

    The viewing was scheduled to run through 9 p.m. Tuesday at Fellowship Chapel, 7707 W. Outer Drive. The funeral will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the same church.
