Royce Da 5’9″ – Security

Most Touching Line: “I was at Proof’s funeral / Crying like a baby, I was sitting in the back row / With Kid Vishis, wishing I can go up to Marshall / Denaun, Swifty, Obie, Bizarre, Paul and Von / And say something positive, after all the negative s**t that we been through.”

Eminem – “Difficult”

Most Touching Line: “I found that jacket that you left at my wedding and I picked it up to smell it / I wrapped it up in plastic until I put it in glass and hang up in the hallway so I can always look at it…”

Kuniva – “Lights Out”

Most Touching Line: “This s**t is so depressing /I stop thinking selfish, my dude had kids / Left with a lie about the last day that he lived / And I sit shedding tears, that’s me and my little drama / I lost me a brother, but his kids lost a father.”

Swifty McVay – “Guardian Angel”

Most Touching Line: “Your family is stronger than ever / Keeping it cool / Thanks to God /Time heals wounds / I’ll see you soon / Sometimes it gets hard / My heart is still scarred / But I’m gonna be repping Proof forever / ‘Till I’m gone!”

Eminem – “You’re Never Over”

Most Touching Line: “Proof, not many are lucky enough to have a guardian angel like you / Lord I’m so thankful, please don’t think that I don’t feel grateful, I do / Just grant me the strength that I need, for one more day to get through / So hommie this is your song, I dedicate this to you / I love you Doodie.”

Obie Trice – Ride Wit Me

Most Touching Line: “Proof, to shine hopes on your memories forever spoken, long as Obie’s able to lay focus / I’m gonna stay focused til them pearly gates open, for the next soldier to pave the way for mo-town / No matter what they say you’re profound, Pioneer of Motown music that’s what Proof did.”

Jem – You Will Make It

Most Touching Line: “You’re not alone, You’ll never be, Just like the stars, They oversee , And they whisper to you, You’re still, you’re still, you’re still, you’re still alive..”
