    Rapper Proof shot dead

    Detroit - Proof, a member of American rap group D12 and a close friend of Eminem, was shot dead at a nightclub on Tuesday.

    The death of Proof, whose real name was Deshaun Holton, was confirmed by Dennis Dennehy, publicist for D12's label Interscope Records.

    Dennehy said: "Memorial service arrangements are still being made, and his friends and family would appreciate privacy during this difficult time."

    Proof was the best man at Eminem's wedding in January.

    He often appeared alongside the superstar rapper at concerts and public appearances. He also appeared in the film 8 Mile.

    United States police would not confirm Proof's death, but said two people were shot in the head, one fatally, at a nightclub in Detroit.

    Detroit police spokesperson James Tate said an argument at the CCC nightclub had escalated into gunshots.

    Spokesperson for the US St John Health System, Wende Berry, said Holton was dead on arrival at an outpatient treatment facility.

    Berry confirmed he had a gunshot wound.


    We lose another talented rapper to the gun crime currently swarming hip hop of late.
    He stood out the most for me, behind eminem in the band. Definetly one fo the talented artists who failed to 'make it big'. Wonder what will happen with D12 now, hasnt eminem supposedly quit to? D8 doesnt have that ring to it..
    Bad week for eminem this, first he loses his wife and she exposes him as still a drug addict, now he loses his best man from his wedding and right hand man proof.
    Amazing though, eminem did say something like this was going to happen in 'Like toy soliders'
    I hope D12 can still get there album together, in respect to proof.
    We'll probably see another death/injury on the hip hop scene in retaliation to this more than likely.

    I wasnt to sure were to put it to be fair, but surely a death is more important than a thread location.
