Kelley L Carter of the Detroit Free Press offered additional insight on the life and death of D12 rapper Proof, who was Eminem’s best man and served as Slim’s hype man on tour. A source close to Eminem said Tuesday that Eminem was devastated, and that the pair had been particularly close over the past few weeks, as Eminem’s second marriage to Kim Mathers unraveled. D12 bandmate Denaun Porter, aka Kon Artis, said, “I just don’t know how to feel right now. It’s crazy because we’re suffering all these losses. We lost Bugz. Now we lost Proof. I just don’t know, you know what I mean? We’re all so messed up. Whatever happened, whoever this dude is, is still around. This is just crazy.”
