Star pays tribute to slain friend
Eminem has launched a website selling T-shirts and posters featuring rapper Proof.
Marshall Mathers’ best friend was shot and killed in an argument outside a Detroit nightclub on April 11.
Paying tribute at the rapper’s funeral, Eminem said: “Proof was funny, he was smart, he was charming. He inspired everyone around him. He can never, ever be replaced. He was, and always will be, my best friend.”
The proceeds from BigProof4Ever.com will go towards the upkeep of the rapper’s five children.
A statement on the website reads: “Through all the changes and growth in his life he never lost who he was, never forgot where he came from, and never quit giving back to those who needed. In all he will not only be remembered as an artist but as a proud son, a loving father, a caring husband, a devoted friend, and a beautiful person.”
