Eminem Just Gave Proof's Son, Who's A Rapper, A Major Co-Sign

By Daryl Nelson

The rapper Nasaan, who's the son of the late Detroit MC Proof, just got a major co-sign from Eminem.

Nasaan is now a contestant in a Fresh Empire contest, and Em told all of his Instagram followers to support him. He also put the young spitter's music in his Instagram bio.

Please check out @1nasaan and give him a vote if you are feeling his verse! I'm proud of what he's becoming as a rapper, back when we took this photo a few years ago I didn't even know he was taking music serious. Proof is somewhere real proud too! Link in bio.

Em and Proof were best friends, and Proof is often given credit forĀ encouraging Em to pursue his music. In fact, Mekhi Phifer's character Future in the film 8 Mile was loosely based onĀ the D12 member.

In 2006, Proof was shot and killed during an altercation at the CCC nightclub in Detroit.

Proof is a Detroit legend when it comes to Hip Hop. But do you think people will pass on that same love to his son? You can see Nasaan spit below.
