Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Deceased D12 Member Proof Once Try To Punk Suge Knight?

Today marks the six-year anniversary of the death of rapper Proof. Proof was one of the founding members of platinum-selling group D12, as well as the man responsible for Eminem’s success…according to Eminem himself.

Former labelmate Obie Trice recently shared a story about a trip he and Proof took to Las Vegas, where they happened to bump into Suge Knight and Proof tried to punk him. Check out the story below:

I remember we was in Las Vegas. We in the lobby, chillin’, drinkin’. Suge [Knight] walked in. I wanna meet the dude. F*ck all the dumb sh*t, ’Pac dead and gone, but this muthaf*cka had Death Row Records. I wanna shake the brother hand. Proof mad and sh*t. “What the f*ck you wanna shake his hand for?” He pissed at me. We get in a big *ss argument. He tauntin’ the dude. Suge smokin’ a cigar. Proof dancin’ around Suge, talkin’ sh*t. I don’t think Proof knew ’Pac like that, but he appreciated his music and his art. Suge like, let’s go outside. Proof like, “You said that to the last muthaf*cka and he dead” [Laughs].

R.I.P., Proof.

Check out “Dudey” aka “Difficult”, Eminem’s official tribute song to Proof:

    You faggots need to stay of Suge’s nuts cause he’s an OG and you are a bunch of internet fags #smh

    • LOL

      Kinda co-sign!
      Suge = OG , Lesson & End of an Era

      Probably the last of the real MC’s being commercial success , based on their skills. 
      In the 90’z , it wasn’t as much fake rap , as it was quality rap.

      Today , hard to find a quality MC on the airwaves.

      Kanye & Jay Z = Good Music, etc.   
      Neither could take anyone in my top 5.

      Still , Jay Z rates place in Hip Hop History ,  on the business aspect. Like Russell Simmons & Melle Mel.

      Top 5 :

      1 ) KRS- ONE

      The other 4 = Too Hard to decide.

  • I can believe it.

    Proof would represent , but 1 deep’ing Suge is gonna test anyone. 

    Shout your diss & keep it moving…..preferably from the driver’s seat.

    Did Suge set up Pac?

    Nah!

    Back then , $hyt happened….just like with Proof.

    Then again , can always blame Jay Z & Illuminati.

  • The Track & Tattoo = Proper

    When Em raps about what he feelz….he’s hard to touch!

  • RIP

    These rap niggas give suge way to
    Much credit……..

    Yeah he took dre company, but we talking bout DRE????
    Who we all can agreed wasnt the tuffest cookie on the block.

    He burnt harry-o for the million dollar seed money.

    After that he just put goons on his team. Thats all.

    I remember black rob bragging on a track, that he was one of the last rapper left that not scared of suge. As if that a deserve a stripe or something.

    Industry niggas was scared of him.
    In da street niggas never was!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That niggas not as tuff when he is in compromising situations.

    • Big Ice Bastardman ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      People act like they forgot about Dre.
      They should study their tape of NWA.

    •  Don’t think he ever took it because Dr Dre never owned it.

    • Tony G.

      did he take it from Dre or did Dre leave to get away from the bullshit…i do agree that niggas give him way too much credit tho

  • bplus1220

    Umm…RIP and all but, isn’t this the same dude who got himself killed flashing a gun to scare someone. He lost me at, “He tauntin’ the dude. Suge smokin’ a cigar. Proof dancin’ around Suge, talkin’ sh*t.”
