Eminem: “Proof Was My Brother”
The rap superstar speaks publicly about the death of his best friend Proof...
In an official statement released by Eminem, he refers to Proof as a key part of his life and his career. "You don't know where to begin when you lose somebody who's been such a big part of your life for so long," he said. "Proof and I were brothers.
He pushed me to become who I am. Without Proof's guidance and encouragement there would have been a Marshall Mathers, but probably not an Eminem and certainly never a Slim Shady.
Not a day will go by without his spirit and influence around us all. He will be missed as a friend, father and both the heart and ambassador of Detroit hip-hop."
