That sign on the freeway was right...

Welcome to Detroit, Hope you survive.

Proof Shot Dead

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 Road, a publicist said.

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

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

Family members gathered at a home on Detroit's northwest side. The residential street in front of the two-story home was lined with vehicles.

Proof was the best man at Eminem's wedding in January and often appeared alongside the superstar rapper at concerts and public appearances. He also appeared in the film "8 Mile."

D12, which includes 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.

Detroit police wouldn't confirm that Proof was killed, but said two people were shot in the head one fatally early Tuesday at a nightclub on Eight Mile.

An argument at the CCC nightclub escalated into gunshots, Detroit police spokesman James 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. Berry confirmed that he had a gunshot wound.

Another member of Eminem's inner circle rapper Obie Trice was shot while driving on a Detroit-area highway in December.

Ok, I'll ask, why the comments?

It was in another thread. Someone put up a sign on the freeway that said that.

At this rate, we won't have to worry about the evils of rap music for too much longer. Looks like they are taking care of the problem themselves!

I didnt say that. But, I sure would not say rest in peace to that jack ass.

No matter what the circumstances... he shot the other guy in the head first. Period. Plus, he was so far from being a model citizen, I could care less.

No, I said that.

I think if your a rapper you shouldn't be able to own firearms. But then they would be shanking each other, so...
