big proof forever Rest in Peace: Proof of D12 (Gone But Never Forgotten)

On April 11, 2006, Proof was killed by a gunshot wound to the chest at the CCC Club by club bouncer Mario Etheridge on 8 Mile Road in Detroit, Michigan after fatally shooting Keith Bender, Jr.

While playing a game of pool, Proof and Bender got into a heated argument. After a physical altercation, Etheridge fired his gun into the air to try and stop the situation, but Proof shot Bender in the head. Etheridge, who was Bender’s cousin, then shot Proof three times in the head and chest. Proof was killed, and Bender died a week later. Proof’s blood alcohol content at the time of his death was 0.32 percent, four times the level that qualifies someone for a drunken driving conviction; he had no other drugs in his system. Bender’s family began a wrongful death suit against Proof’s estate. Etheridge was held by authorities to have been acting in lawful defense of another man; however, he was found guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and discharging a firearm inside a building.


In 2007, Proof’s mother, Pepper Holton created the Proof Foundation in his memory. The Proof Foundation is a Michigan based non-profit organization formed to honor and preserve the legacy of Deshaun “Proof” Holton through the promotion of music and arts education by providing scholarships to low income children from single parent households. Eminem made two songs about Proof’s death on his album “Recovery” titled “Going Through Changes” and “You’re Never Over”, and mentions him in several songs on Relapse


That is just some of the background of what happen five years ago today, But today we will not mourn but instead celebrate the Big homies life. #RIPBIGProof
