Eminem’s Former Bodyguard Shares A Lot Of Unknown Facts About Em & D12 – Southpawer
Eminem's former bodyguard asked fans question on Reddit and revealed Eminem's younger half-brother Nate, though, was a different story and used his relationship with Eminem to get Proof (may that awesome soul forever RIP) slapped a woman who Kim's mom was a mess and Em was shook up. Marshall Mathers—better known by his stage name Eminem—didn't have of her mother's brief relationship with a man named Eric Hartter. Eminem and Kim adopted Alaina after her own parents were not fit to care for her. Eminem sat between his manager, Paul Rosenberg, and 50 Cent in the second row, just behind Proof's mother, wife, aunts, children and.
Eminem could barely go anywhere and concerts, tours and any public appearances especially around late when both The Eminem Show and the film 8 Mile were totally dominating popular culture were the most chaotic experiences I have ever had. I do want to say, it is extremely important to never judge celebrities or make assumptions about them or what they do because they totally can and many totally do lose their minds with the exorbitant amount of fame and excess they are exposed to.
I see this has generated quite a bit of attention. Feel free to AMA.
The true story behind the killing of Eminem's friend Proof | Music | The Guardian
Many of you have asked me to tell me stories and off the top of my head, there are hundreds. I spent many, many hours with him and his crew and it was truly an experience that I will forever cherish. He was a hell of a guy but boy, did we have some wild events. Several fans tried to physically contact Em and had to be restrained, Proof may that awesome soul forever RIP slapped a woman who grabbed his dick she basically tried to yank his pants off and blow him when he was walking offstage and I drank more Remy Martin than I ever have in my life with Obie Trice.
How often was D12 around during those years? Did you ever experience any of the beef he had with other rappers? Was there a lot of weed around in his crew?
D12 was around incessantly. They accompanied Eminem on all the tours he went on during that period also, so I spent plenty of time with them.
Honestly, each and every single one of those men is awesome. I have nothing but good things to say about them. Kon Artis now known as Mr. Porter is a great producer and humble guy, Kuniva and Swifty are so so down to earth and jovial, and Bizarre is a funny ass guy.
I experienced all of the beef he had because security was especially beefed up during that time. The only beef we never really gave a fuck about was the Everlast and Limp Bizkit beef. Yeah, weed was always big. Whenever he recorded with Dre there was weed around. The Bass Brothers liked to smoke too when they produced and some of the engineers and other production members enjoyed toking up. D12 members were all fond of weed and Eminem himself used it quite a bit.
His favorite drug by far was certainly Vicodin though. How did you get the position, and why did you leave it? I knew Joel Martin the owner of the studio in Ferndale, Michigan where Eminem recorded most of his albums and he got me the position. I had to leave due to some unexpected family issues.
I still keep in touch with Eminem and sometimes tag along, but I no longer do security full time. Did you ever see him fight? Even if just for a moment before you stepped in? I did see him fight and it was usually at a shit ton of the strip clubs Cheetah was one of his favorites that he liked to frequent.
He would rarely start the fight but was quick to go off on a fan or something who got smart with him, especially if he had some liquor in him. Did you ever meet Kim? Any opinions of her? Proof said that he did not produce the record with Shady Records or Aftermath because he wanted to "build his own thing".
Proof has stated his admiration for Garcia's eclectic style, saying that Garcia "went against the grain".
Proof (rapper) - Wikipedia
Shooting and death[ edit ] On April 11,Proof was shot three times by Mario Etheridge, once in the head and twice in the chest, after a dispute broke out during a game of billiards at the CCC Club on 8 Mile Road in Detroit, Michigan.
A pool game between Proof and Keith Bender turned into a heated argument and then escalated into a physical altercation. Etheridge, who was Bender's cousin, fired a warning shot into the air. There have been many conflicting reports about Proof and Keith Bender's roles in the shooting, but it was reported that Proof then shot Bender in the head during the altercation.
At the time of his death, Proof's blood alcohol content was 0. An autopsy revealed that he did not have any illegal drugs in his system. In an interview, however, Proof once referred to his father as a 'crackhead' and it has been alleged that his mother was also involved in drugs.
He attended Gesu private school in his youth before enrolling at Osborn High on Detroit's east side. Proof was the consummate diplomat, charming everyone. He was also the only kid in the neighbourhood to see the potential in a smart-ass white boy named Marshall Mathers.

Proof taught Mathers how to hone his wit, and sneaked him into the Osborn High cafeteria to battle rap at lunch hour. As Mudd of 5 Ela recalled warmly, Proof was always a loyal friend. The very next day, without a word, he dropped off a huge bag full of all his family's old baby clothes.
Following a six-week spell in rehab for addiction to the sleeping pill Ambien, in the first five months of he has re-married his ex-wife Kim and then divorced her for a second time after only 82 days together, while his mother's health has also drastically degenerated. Before Proof's killing, Eminem's friend Obie Trice also came close to death; on New Year's Eve, the Shady Records artist most-likely-to-break-out-big-this-year, was shot in the head, while driving himself and his girlfriend home from a party.
Trice steered his car safely off the highway, let his girlfriend take the wheel and two days later was found doing push-ups in his hospital room. At Proof's funeral, Trice echoed a theme that ran throughout the proceedings - that violence in Detroit, and every black community in America is needlessly ending lives.
Yeah, I know - you 'hood, you gangsta.
We all from the 'hood. Detroit is the 'hood.
We are killin' each other, dawg, and it's about nothin'. We are leaving our kids, our mamas, our grandmamas over nothin'. His final resting place is beautiful - more a park than a collection of gravestones, complete with lush, manicured foliage, a pond, ducks and geese. The coffin was opened for his nearest and dearest to see him once more. They kissed his cheek or forehead and said their last goodbyes, as a flock of white doves was released in his honour.
Afterwards, they gathered at the Good Life Lounge, to do what more than a few felt would be his wish for them that day - to have a party. A huge D-town soul-food spread was laid out: The occasion was grim, but Proof's legacy prevailed - he had brought everyone together once more, and the lust for living that informed his life was tangible. As the night wore on and the dance floor filled, songs like D12's 'Purple Pills' later re-titled 'Purple Hills' and Proof's solo work inspired hoots, hollers, and the joyous spraying of beer.
Proof was about to introduce me and he looked at me for a while and said, "What's your name? Your real name, no gimmicks.
He gave me my name. He did all that shit, man. He was the pioneer of Detroit hip-hop music. Andrew's Hall, knew Proof for years and saw money and fame have little effect on him. He recalled the night not long ago when Proof drove up to the club in a new BMW - a gift from Eminem. You know I don't care about material shit. He didn't care what kind of band was on, he just wanted to see the music. He used to take my entire staff at St. Andrew's out to breakfast when he'd be there at closing time.
I'm talking 30, 50 people - all of the employees, the DJs, everyone. Those who knew Proof were quick to point out how he rolled: But he was no gun-toting killer.
