Snoop Dogg calls for unity after Proof’s death

Legendary American hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg has called on his fellow musicians to unite after the fatal shooting of D-12 member Proof.

Proof, a close friend of rapper Eminem and member of the D-12 hip-hop outfit was shot dead outside a Detroit nightclub earlier this week.

Snoop Dogg said Proof’s death was a loss to the hip-hop community.

“He was a part of the hip-hop family,” said Snoop Dogg at the MTV Australia Music Awards.

“We can’t stop it (violence) … we try to … we try to be as positive as we can and do good things with our lives.”

“I just know that every time somebody gets killed in hip-hop we should look at it as a tragedy.

“There’s nothing we can do to stop it as hip-hop artists but be who we are and continue to make our good music.”

Snoop Dogg was one of the big names to attend the MTV awards, winning the best hip-hop video award for his song Drop It Like It’s Hot.
