DETROIT - Proof, a member of rap group D12 and a close friend of Eminem, was shot to death early Tuesday at a nightclub along Eight Mile, the road made famous by the 2002 film that starred Eminem and in which Proof had a bit part.

Proof, whose real name is Deshaun Holton, was one of two people shot in the head after an argument escalated into gunfire, said Detroit police spokesman James Tate.

The other person — a 35-year-old man — was critically wounded, Tate said.

Plans for a memorial service were incomplete, said Dennis Dennehy, publicist for D12's label, Interscope Records.

"His friends and family would appreciate privacy during this difficult time," Dennehy said in a statement.

D12, whose members include Eminem, has been around since the mid-1990s, when members of the rap group met at Detroit's Hip-Hop Shop, a clothing store by day and a hip-hop club by night.

Proof was the best man at Eminem's wedding in January and often appeared alongside the superstar rapper at concerts and public appearances.

The two men were shot inside the C.C.C. nightclub, a small bar in a strip of businesses along Eight Mile, which divides Detroit and its northern suburbs, Tate said.

Wende Berry, a spokeswoman for St. John Health System, said Holton was dead on arrival at St. John Conner Creek, an outpatient treatment facility.

In December, another member of Eminem's inner circle — rapper Obie Trice — was shot while driving on a Detroit-area highway.

D12 Live In Chicago came out November 15th. It's awesome. There's invidual interviews with the guys. There's songs from both CDs and samples from Proof and Bizzy's solo efforts. If you like D12 for Em - this isn't the DVD for you, he's nowhere on it. I am very impressed with it.

RunyonAve.com is officially open for business. Kon Artis and Kuniva are promoting other acts from the D as well as their solo gig Da Brigade.

Just thought I'd let everyone know. I've been checking the site every so often for like 6 months and it was always "under construction".

Eminem and Dr. Dre Homepages

  Hey-

I'm running this new site called http://www.awesomestart.com Bascially it's a customizable homepage. It's got a google search, your favorite news links, a link to your email, and all that kind of stuff.



If you click the image above, you can see the start page directly. Otherwise, you can go to the preferences page to customize all the links and stuff on the page. The idea for these pages is you can customize one and make it your homepage. That way you'll have all the links you need everytime you open up your browser. And the page will look cool because it has Eminem (or another artist) on it.

I did one for Dre too:


Let me know what you guys think! There's more coming every day. I have maybe 35 other bands and artists on there right now, and I should have 50 by the end of the month. I'm going to start doing movies and videogames soon too. Oh, and please help me spread the word! If people could repost this in different places and tell your friends and stuff, that would be really cool.

Thanks for your support you guys. You rock.

Anger Management Tour 3

  Hello
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a pair of tickets to the Anger Management Tour 3, with Eminem, G-Unit, and 50 Cent at Comerica Park.

They are Mezzanine seats, section 217, row 5, seats 12 and 13.
Seating Chart

I'm willing to sell them for $75 each. It's a little cheaper than ticketmaster with their service charges and such, so you are getting a little bit of a deal.

The concert is on Friday August 12th at 7:00.

If you're interested (or know anyone interested...) comment on my journal or you reach me though AIM at Levulose est ego. We can arrange stuff then.


Thanks,
(Sorry if you see this a few times, I have cross-posted.)

Hi everyone, I just joined. I love D12 (duh) so I was excited to find this community. I'm a huge rap fan. I have most of Eminem's CDs, but I still need to get my hands on a copy of the Slim Shady EP and an actual copy of Infinite, not just a burned one. I have D12 World and Devil's Night. So, yeah, hi.

Was anyone else upset to hear about Irv Gotti getting busted and Murder Inc. collaberating with Shug Nite? I was.

*giggles* That's one of my favorite lines from Kon Artis off of Devil's Night. Not that I have a nonfavorite line of his. Everything he spits is good.

You'll have to excuse me - I happen to have... a small obsession with the man.

My name's Connie, I'm 26 - from Michigan (I live about an hour north of Detroit) and I LOVE me some D12. I scoured eBay and got all of D12's underground stuff. Inclusive of Proof's first solo CD "E.C.A.T" and Bizzy's "Attack of the Weirdos".

I personally can not WAIT until 2005. Kon Artis and Kuniva have a solo project coming out with their group Da Brigade - plus there's not one but TWO D12 movies coming out - Runyon Cash (which is supposed to be like 8 Mile and if it's shot in Detroit - you can bet your ass - I'm going to go see if I can't see some of the filming) and Devil's Night which is supposed to be a scary movie. They've also got a DVD coming out and are working on a reality show. I found all this out at their concert the 1st of August. I screamed and was like COME ON 2005. I called my best friend the next day and asked if it was 2005 yet.

AND - the MTV VMA's are tonight and they're nominated for 3 awards. They're up against some stiff competition - but here's to hoping for the best.

You'll have to excuse my babbling - I get slightly excited when talking about D12.

It is SO cool that I found this community.

  Wassup people. My name is Sara.From Texas. I'm 15, been a Eminem fan since the 5th grade. Been a D12 fan since before the release of Devil's Night. I have not been lucky enough to see them in concert, considering the fact that Mr. Mathers prefers to tour overseas, and when he does tour here, he's never touched Texas. I hate when people say they are huge fans, and only know "My Band" or "Lose Yourself". Can't decide my favorite track on D12 World yet. I love "Bitches" and "40 Oz." Bugg's track is ill. Well, that's me!
