Feel free to AMA. Many of you have asked me to tell me stories and off the top of my head, there are hundreds.
I spent many, many hours with him and his crew and it was truly an experience that I will forever cherish. He was a hell of a guy but boy, did we have some wild events.
How often was D12 around during those years? Did you ever experience any of the beef he had with other rappers? Was there a lot of weed around in his crew? D12 was around incessantly. They accompanied Eminem on all the tours he went on during that period also, so I spent plenty of time with them.
Honestly, each and every single one of those men is awesome. I have nothing but good things to say about them. Kon Artis now known as Mr. I experienced all of the beef he had because security was especially beefed up during that time. Yeah, weed was always big.
Whenever he recorded with Dre there was weed around. The Bass Brothers liked to smoke too when they produced and some of the engineers and other production members enjoyed toking up. D12 members were all fond of weed and Eminem himself used it quite a bit.
His favorite drug by far was certainly Vicodin though. How did you get the position, and why did you leave it?
I knew Joel Martin the owner of the studio in Ferndale, Michigan where Eminem recorded most of his albums and he got me the position. I had to leave due to some unexpected family issues. I still keep in touch with Eminem and sometimes tag along, but I no longer do security full time.
Did you ever see him fight? Even if just for a moment before you stepped in? He would rarely start the fight but was quick to go off on a fan or something who got smart with him, especially if he had some liquor in him. Did you ever meet Kim? Any opinions of her? I met Kim many times. All in all, I liked her. Sure, she had a pretty serious cocaine habit of her own and was a pretty wild girl, but at heart she was a good person. The transition to the fame was as taxing and troubling for her as it was for him.
I felt awful hearing about that and rushing to the hospital. I was introduced to Eminem through Joel Martin he owned the studio in Ferndale, Michigan where Eminem recorded much of his albums and Paul Rosenberg another great guy handled most of the legal end. All the people around Eminem did and do. I watched an interview of Kim saying that he cheated on her on a daily basis. Does this resemble reality in any way you have noticed?
It was typically during those five days in between that he was cheating on her, but unfortunately, he did cheat on her and at times, it was when they were together. Kim had her spouts of infidelity too, though.

My question is, do you know the full story with Mariah Carey? Did he ever feel bad about rapping about something like raping his mom and things like that? The media certainly got to him.Kim Mathers talks about Eminem
It pissed him off a lot because he felt he was being judged without people understanding his background. I literally have thousands of people across dozens of states cussing my mom out just because I wrote it into a record. He recorded so many songs, not to mention bars or verses that he got rid of. The ones he beefed with and almost all pop stars.
Does he think that he is one of the best rappers? Or does he see himself as overrated?
Etheridge has not been charged with murder by the authorities but instead faces two counts of possessing and discharging a weapon without a license. In a preliminary hearing, he pleaded not guilty to these charges. In Michigan if an individual fatally shoots someone while coming to the defence of another, it is not considered murder or manslaughter. On 27 April, 16 days after the incident, the Detroit police announced that Proof did not enter the CCC club with a firearm.
They also stated that Etheridge did not arrive with a pistol either, but rather grabbed a gun during the ensuing ruckus. That may well be true, but according to H. Mack - a very close childhood friend of Proof's who was near enough to the action that night to have been shot in the hand by a stray bullet and treated at the same hospital where Proof was pronounced dead - even the revamped police version of events isn't quite right.
Guns started goin' off. P hit the guy, and then his cousin Etheridge fired shots into the ceiling. I do not believe P shot the man - he'd never shoot nobody unless they fired first. That's who he was. Yeah, they were fighting over some bullshit but he would never, ever shoot someone over some bullshit.
It was all just fucked up. It is on a barren corner of 8 Mile across from a giant yellow Mega Pawn store. The CCC is on the black city side, and has been a hotbed of illegality and violence since In February of this year, a bouncer at the club was shot twice in the torso. The courts decide the rest.
When you have a location that is a magnet for trouble, we do what we can to see the situation resolved. When you have owners operating illegally, they're setting the tone for whatever occurs from that point on. Buoyed by Eminem's success, he had enjoyed huge hits with the D12 albums Devil's Night and last year's D12 World, a number one in both Britain and America. But he wasn't at the CCC to bolster his street credibility - he was there because as countless friends testify, he was Detroit to the core.
Proof was a man who rarely slept: Long after he didn't need to care for others, he did, helping, guiding and influencing everyone around him and apprenticing local rappers: Official Mixtape Instruction Manual, the first mixtape release on his Iron Fist label, stars MCs who would never have been heard outside of Detroit if it weren't for Proof. He also used his fame to work for local musicians' benefits, encouraging them to join the Musicians Union, which provides them with healthcare and pensions.
He did not brag about these efforts, nor boast of his guidance of Eminem and Obie Trice's careers. Proof was key in selecting the instrumental tracks that best suited their skills, and inspired Eminem at all times of day and night by text messaging him couplets and rhymed phrases.
Proof was a nimble, witty freestyle MC, with a ferociously curious mind. He loved everything from Miles Davis to Jimi Hendrix. He was a gifted and giving anomaly, a rapper who cared for art over materialism, but did all he could to bring wealth to others.
The easiest way to understand Proof is to ask this simple question: He played the MC that causes 'Rabbit' Eminem to choke in the first battle-rap scene of the film. But his true spirit inspired the dreadlocked character 'Future' played by Mekhi Phiferthe MC who organized and refereed the rap battles.
He encourages Rabbit to find his voice as a rapper, just as Proof did for Marshall Mathers. Swift of D12 said it best shortly after hearing that his friend had died, when gathered with Proof's closest friends - a hundred or so strong - at St.
Andrew's Hall, the club where he had hosted so many rap battles. In an interview, however, Proof once referred to his father as a 'crackhead' and it has been alleged that his mother was also involved in drugs. He attended Gesu private school in his youth before enrolling at Osborn High on Detroit's east side. Proof was the consummate diplomat, charming everyone. He was also the only kid in the neighbourhood to see the potential in a smart-ass white boy named Marshall Mathers.
Proof taught Mathers how to hone his wit, and sneaked him into the Osborn High cafeteria to battle rap at lunch hour. As Mudd of 5 Ela recalled warmly, Proof was always a loyal friend.
The true story behind the killing of Eminem's friend Proof | Music | The Guardian
The very next day, without a word, he dropped off a huge bag full of all his family's old baby clothes. Following a six-week spell in rehab for addiction to the sleeping pill Ambien, in the first five months of he has re-married his ex-wife Kim and then divorced her for a second time after only 82 days together, while his mother's health has also drastically degenerated.
Before Proof's killing, Eminem's friend Obie Trice also came close to death; on New Year's Eve, the Shady Records artist most-likely-to-break-out-big-this-year, was shot in the head, while driving himself and his girlfriend home from a party. Trice steered his car safely off the highway, let his girlfriend take the wheel and two days later was found doing push-ups in his hospital room. At Proof's funeral, Trice echoed a theme that ran throughout the proceedings - that violence in Detroit, and every black community in America is needlessly ending lives.
Yeah, I know - you 'hood, you gangsta.
We all from the 'hood. Detroit is the 'hood. We are killin' each other, dawg, and it's about nothin'. We are leaving our kids, our mamas, our grandmamas over nothin'. His final resting place is beautiful - more a park than a collection of gravestones, complete with lush, manicured foliage, a pond, ducks and geese.
The coffin was opened for his nearest and dearest to see him once more. They kissed his cheek or forehead and said their last goodbyes, as a flock of white doves was released in his honour. Afterwards, they gathered at the Good Life Lounge, to do what more than a few felt would be his wish for them that day - to have a party.
