Sometimes I wish for my demise I could kick it with Bugz - Proof ("Kurt Cobain")For those who weren't fans of Proof but have suddenly jumped on the bandwagon now that he's gone, I've put together a mini playlist in rememberance of D-12's only legitimate wordsmith. Details of Proof's shooting have emerged, and as my hometown newspaper rightly puts it: this affords mudslingers yet another opportunity to blame hip-hop for random violence and senseless, albeit un-related killings.
Turns out dude was a fun guy, he has just finish whooping Twista's ass in the Snoop Dogg-commissioned Hip Hop Gaming League match-up. I was scavenging the site for Proof's freestyle video, since the PR lady deleted my copy from her server (hi Jasmine).
What People Do for Money : An older track.
Runnin Yo! Mouth ft T-Flam: Shows off Proof's emceein' acumen.Ja In A Bra' :Tearing into Ja Rule during the Shady vs Inc debacle.
Clap Wit Me: One of my favorites off Searching for Jerry Garcia.
Forgive Me ft 50 Cent: An old 50 chorus is recycled here. This is vintage Proof otherwise. He pays homage to the D as always.
Slum Elementz ft T3: Proof + T3 = great combination.
I find it strange that Proof was chosen to be in Eminem's "Toy Soldier" music video where he was killed violently. But what's even more bizarre is the fact that he was on some suicidal-ready-to-die Biggie-type shit throughout his album Searching For Jerry Garcia, most notably on "Kurt Cobain." For those who still wonder why Proof died the way he did, go listen to the intro to Searching For Jerry Garcia, then you'll understand.
