Yesterday, April 11th, hip-hop heads around the globe acknowledged the 10th anniversary of the death of Detroit emcee Big Proof. The emcee was larger than life around the big axle and was known for hardcore battle raps as well as for bringing artists together.

Legendary DJ/producer Lenn Swann of the 12 Tech Mob released a heartfelt dedication cut, “Big Proof Rest In Peace.” Though the cut travels through melancholy nostalgia, it’s still a Detroit gritty track that Proof would have loved to spit bars on.
