Not only is he Em's right hand man, but Proof won The Source's 1999 Unsigned Hype award and made considerable noise on Shady Records' multi-Platinum group D12's debut, Devil's Night. He is the man Mekhi Phifer portrays in "8 Mile," plus he appears in the film as Lil' Tic, the freestyler that makes Em choke in the opening battle scene. With so much hype in his corner, Proof released a six-song EP, Electric Coolaid–Acid Testing which dropped on December 17 and a full-length, 'Searching 4 Jerry Garcia' is set for February 18, 2003, featuring Eminem, D12 and Obie Trice.
Proof explains: "The EP came about because I was putting out the 'Searching 4 Jerry Garcia' album and of course, the Grateful Dead had previous to their shows the protesters to legalize acid so they had electric coolaid acid testers. So therefore by the album being Searching 4 Jerry Garcia I thought that'd be dope to have the Electric Cool-Aid Acid Testing EP to hit off the DJs and radio stations and mix rotations across the nation. So I put six songs on there. The lead single is featuring MC Breed from 'Ain't No Future In Yo' Frontin'' and 'Gotta Get Mine.'"
