  • 4/25 - Hush Speaks about Proof

    I just want everyone to know a couple things...

    Regardless of what really took place that night, I lost a friend...

    I first met Proof in 94' at The Shelter. Long dreadlocks, wearing a red Hip-Hop Shop t-shirt. I walked up to him and said, "What up Proof?", he gave me the hip-hop shake and said "What up Hushy". And from that day forward I was HUSHY, not Hush.

    Always smiling, always laughing, cracking jokes, and serious when he wanted to be.

    Not many people know this but when Da Ruckus was in its writing stages of Episode 1, Proof was at my house almost everyday when I lived on the westside. Kicking it, or watching movies, or whatever. Michael was 2 years old at the time and he'd play hoops with him on his little "Jordan Jammer", and actually alot of D-12 would be there, Bizarre would stay the night, Swifty came over playing with Michael, but Proof would help me write and get my lyrics tight.

    He actually helped me write "150 MC's". I read him my lyrics for it over the phone one day and after it was all done he said "You forgot Slum Village, it's a story so you gotta throw them in there". I didn't know where though. He said "Well, you stopped hanging with Champtown and you with us now, so say---I used to live in Champtown but I moved to Slum Village". And I had no way of ryhming Slum Village, so I played this game with him over the phone of saying Slum Village, Rum Spillage, Dumb Ill-kids, etc..... Then he was like "No say, in the city Motown that was run by Mike Illitch".

    Fucking genius..... Only a freestyler of his caliber would go off the map and snatch a pronoun while I'm still in the dictionary. Now go back and listen to that song. It's his line-not mine. It will have a different meaning everytime I hear it...

    I never got a chance to say thank you. But I know he's heard me the past 2 days. I will miss him, And like I said regardless of the events, I will celebrate his music. Especially his old stuff to bring back those memories of when we were close.

    My love goes out to his family, his friends, and Detroit will not be the same without him.

            Thats a nice story. I like it when people talk about how he was when he still was here and not about how he died.
            Bless it
