Facts about MC Big Proof
"If I was you, suicide would be a way of life. If you was me , you'd kill you. " (Proof)

Before I start conversation about D12's able Mc Proof, I would like to thank and to give accept to the webmaster of the subsequent Derty Harry website for the rare info I found about Deshaun Holton aka Derty Harry aka Proof:

http://angelfire. com/bxc3/dertyharry/main_bio. html

Deshaun Holton aka Proof was born on October the 2nd 1975 in Detroit.
Although they didn't concentrate the same High School, Eminem and Proof have been contacts since 1988. They used to live in the same boulevard in Detroit.
Proof used to go to Osbourne High educate while Eminem was attendance Lincoln High. Both links used to skip high educate in order to rap together: in fact Eminem skipped Lincoln High and used to come to Proof's drill very often, since both associates sought after to rap together. This is how they met:

"I was skipping school, and he was skipping discipline also, casual out flyers for his concert he was having in Centerline. That had to be, like, '88 or something. " (Proof)

Some (white) underground Mcs from Detroit like Backstab the Top dog are committed of Proof's racism. But Deshaun's statements seem to prove the contrary.

CDNow has asked Proof how he felt about Eminem's skin color at the time they met:

CDNow: Did you awe what this blond, white kid was up to?

Proof: "You know, I went to Extensive educate and had a great, great ally of mine who happened to be Irish; we were best acquaintances since the sixth grade. So when I saw [Eminem] was white, I didn't even jump off like that; when he rapped, he was dope. What made us get dope and develop into great links was we both rhymed "first place" and "birthday," and we've been tight ever since [laughs]. "

Eminem and Proof have been real links since the beginning. When Eminem was kicked out of his home, he would sleep at Proof's house.
It is well known that Proof is an amazing freestyler. He won the freestyling battle in the Font magazine in 1999. He his a change for the better freestyler than Marshall, but Marshall's force is in the way he handles his words in his lyrics. That's closely what Proof states about their complementary talent:

"We were both impressed with each other. The improvement I've got over Em is freestyling; I'm the kind of guy who freestyles off the head, right? The benefit he had over me was that he knew how to write intricately; he knew how to put a song as one and bring feelings about. That's why I journeyed under him, like, "Yo, show me the ropes, homeboy. "

The idea of the D12 group cool, calm and collected of talented MCs and sick aliases with popped into Proof's mind:

"I was in New York; I had this deal with Tommy Boy that didn't work out, unfortunately. But I just had this idea that we could put all together a team of dope MCs, put a lot of Detroit on as far as having MCs with skills. Everybody's solo took so we'll make aliases, like Eminem's Slim Shady and I'm Derty Harry, and call it the Dirty Dozen -- and at this time, to be frank with you, we attention The Dirty Dozen was a Western movie; we didn't know it was an army movie [laughs].
That fits us, army moderately than Western, 'cause we see ourselves more as gun-slingers, lyric-slingers. Then the idea was to form a pact while this team, whoever gets out first comes back and gets the rest of the group. "

Proof has constantly been assertive in Eminem's loyalty, even if some other members of the group may have been worried:

"Not me; I've been there since day one, almost. I think the rest of the group may not have been there, but Proof has been beside Eminem all this time. I play a leadership role in the group, where I talk to each else; Em is like the president, and I'm the general. I talk to the rest of the fellas and put 'em in line and show 'em the direction. It's a family, too, so there'll be a lot of fighting and bickering, and some associates might have felt it might not be the way it must be. So, yes, there were times when associates felt funny about things. But now all and sundry thinks back to that, and we were agile out over nothing. "

Acccording to Proof, Eminem's accomplishment was the best thing that could have happened to D12:

"Right. Some ancestors look at us like, "You're gonna be Eminem's group. You're gonna be in his shadow. " They don't achieve how categorical and great that is to hear; if you're in the shadow of a guy who can sell just about 10 million proceedings in just the states alone, great. That's not a dis to us. But when they hear the album, they hear the eccentricity of each person, how each person holds their own. "

It is so true that each D12 emcee has his own talent and capability to rap.

It is less known that Proof's first stage name was "Maximum". Proof has at all times been loved in Detroit for his raps and his freestyling qualities. He distorted his nickname when ancestors on track occupation him "Living Proof", as in many people's minds, Proof was the "living proof of the active MCs in Detroit".

Proof has collaborated and still collaborates with frequent artists such as Dogmatic.
Proof's first on the loose Cd was called "From Death" and was co-produced with Da Goon Squad.

He has free a CD called "Promatic" with Authoritarian and a six Track solo EP called "The Explore For Jerry Garcia".
As well as for Eminem, Detroit has been very influencial to Proof who describes his land of your birth as "the type of place where eye associate can get you killed" and also as " a city where the sun never shines, full of pot holes, snow and con artists ready to jack the lot you got".
