Rap superstar and his label Shady records have set up a website, BigProof4Ever.com, as a way to pay tribute to his friend, late member and Detroit rap ambassador Proof.

The site also features some of the words Eminem spoke at Proof's funeral. The website, which is established as a way to pay tribute to Proof, writing "He will not only be remembered as an artist but as a proud son, a loving father, a caring friend, a devoted friend, and a beautiful person. Let us all keep his name alive for eternity through following the examples he gave us for he is truly a great man."
