This was very very unfortanate as proof was a very talented rapper also along with his fellow mates in d12. But as you say america is the country for all this to happen everyday someone gets shot down just for showing there face in the community. R.I.P Proof.

I think everything happens for a reason.
doesnt mean proof deserved to die, but good on him for standing up for himself and he died fighting

Posted by: rufus | April 25, 2006 9:53 AM | Report abuse

Hes gone somewhere better now.
so you should be happy for him, why do these thugs carry guns?

OK first off, did everyone forget that he shot the first bullet? He tried to kill a man. lol He had lived, he would be going to jail for attempted murder.

How can you all sit there and talk about this ASS that carries an unlicensed firearm to a nightclub, pistol-whips and shoots an unarmed man to death, and then gets shot himself as if he's some kind of freakin' HERO?
He was a POS thug, end of story..my city is a safer place without him.

Glad you like my accent. Great to see people care about other's intentions.

Posted by: King Henry | May 3, 2006 1:11 PM | Report abuse

I don't understand some people, he was a good man??? He's going to a better place??? I doubt it, if there is a heaven they probably don't allow gun toting, violence promoting thugs in. I love hip hop, but when tough talking rappers walk around carrying heat, starting beef with other cats who are also known to carry guns, and then shot and killed I find it hard to sit back and say "oh, I can't believe it!". It's too bad cause Proof was a talented artist who just seemed to get caught up in stupid bulls--t, and it caught up with him. When will these dummies ever learn.
