Bizarre Fills in for Proof at Detroit’s “Who Wanna Battle” Event

bizarre.jpgBizarre of D12 will be filling in for his slain comrade Proof as host of the Who Wanna Battle competition in Detroit on October 7th. The event will be held at Detroit’s legendary Club Alvin’s, a starting point for the careers of several D12 members, as well as the inspiration behind some of the battle scenes in the film 8 Mile. The entire D12 crew, including Eminem, is expected to be in attendance as a tribute to Proof. The night’s events will be filmed for the second volume in the “Who Wanna Battle” series of DVDs. Proof was shot and killed in an altercation in a Detroit club in April of this year. The first DVD in the series was released shortly after the murder, and featured Proof and Bizarre performing hosting duties.

    eminem has a history of fuckin over his friends. he replaced proof with royce, royce with obie, and now he’s all sad proofs dead like he was just about to put him on. if royce died he’d be crying about it too, but right now hes showing royce no love.

  • thetruth

    haha, wow. replaced proof with royce? replaced royce with obie? are you retarded? or just a moron? proof was eminem’s best friend… they were best friends since they were kids. ever see an eminem show? proof was always on stage with him. royce fucked em over, like san diego said. and obie trice was a rapper that eminem got a hold of, thought his shit was good and signed him. yeah, he’s good friends with obie, but proof was still his best friend. i dunno where you got your info, but it was totally wrong
