Eminem won the MTV award for Best Hip Hip Video last night for “We Made You”, off of newly released “Relapse” LP, which spoofs US Vice-Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin, Amy Winehouse and Jessica Simpson.
Accepting his award he thanked his fans and Dr Dre, among others, and dedicated the award to the late rapper and lifetime friend Proof, who was fatally shot in 2006, saying: “Proof, this one’s for you.”
While paying tribute at Proofs’ Funeral in 06, Eminem stated… “Proof, he loved people, and people loved him. He was just a people magnet. When you first met him, you wanted to know more about him,” said Eminem, who wore a black suit and occasionally wiped his eye as he stood by the gold-colored casket. “Without Proof, there would be no Eminem, no Slim Shady and no D12. You’re the man.”
