New Album by Rapper Proof to Be Released

Proof

AP -- Proof's record label will release a new album next year by the rapper and Eminem confidante who was shot and killed during a dispute at an after-hours club.

'Time a Tell' will feature 18 songs written and recorded by Proof during a 24-hour period in January.

The D12 rapper was challenged by his friend Julius Myers, known as DJ Jewels Baby, to write and record an entire album in a day. The disc will document the session at Myers' home studio in Detroit.

'It shows how serious Proof was about recording,' Myers told The Detroit News for a story published Thursday.

'Time a Tell' will be released by Iron Fist Records, founded by Proof. His debut solo album, 'Searching for Jerry Garcia,' was released in August 2005.

Proof, whose real name was Deshaun Holton, died April 11. He was 32.

Eminem, a Grammy and Oscar-winning rapper, spoke at his funeral.
