A second string of performances, titled " Tour" was due to run from October 7 to December 7, however once again on December 2 during the Minneapolis show Yelawolf left the stage after one song, seemingly related to exhaustion .
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 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. A huge D-town soul-food spread was laid out: The occasion was grim, but Proof's legacy prevailed - he had brought everyone together once more, and the lust for living that informed his life was tangible.
As the night wore on and the dance floor filled, songs like D12's 'Purple Pills' later re-titled 'Purple Hills' and Proof's solo work inspired hoots, hollers, and the joyous spraying of beer. Proof was about to introduce me and he looked at me for a while and said, "What's your name? Your real name, no gimmicks. He gave me my name. He did all that shit, man. He was the pioneer of Detroit hip-hop music. Andrew's Hall, knew Proof for years and saw money and fame have little effect on him.
He recalled the night not long ago when Proof drove up to the club in a new BMW - a gift from Eminem. You know I don't care about material shit. He didn't care what kind of band was on, he just wanted to see the music.
He used to take my entire staff at St. Andrew's out to breakfast when he'd be there at closing time. I'm talking 30, 50 people - all of the employees, the DJs, everyone. Those who knew Proof were quick to point out how he rolled: But he was no gun-toting killer. Proof's police record best tells the tale: None of his run-ins with the law involved weapons. Proof was a man with many sides - warm and charming, mischievous and sly, sometimes a brawler, but never a gang-banging braggart.
A close friend who was at the CCC but asked to remain anonymous has his own version of what went down that night. A few minutes later, he was deposited outside the club's back door, his jewellery and money gone. There is much left unanswered about the circumstances surrounding Proof's death. This incident is a senseless tragedy that should inspire change, not blame. In the end, ballistic science will reveal whether the bullet that killed Keith Bender was shot from the same gun that killed DeShaun Holton.
If that is the case, perhaps the city of Detroit and the rest of America will search beyond the knee-jerk headlines that portrayed Proof as the gun-slinging thug who killed the war hero. If the initial reports are true, perhaps, in time, how he died will not obscure how he lived. When the dust settles, Proof should be seen truthfully, as the authentic voice of Detroit that he was: He should be remembered as the artist that he was - a man consumed with supporting the place that weaned him; a man, who was, ultimately, consumed by the very same.
