Honoring the life and times of Proof who died five years ago on Monday, Paul Rosenberg liberated a special audible gem, entitled “The Fizzo,” which finds him rhyming over the incomparable beat magic by fellow Detroit native J Dilla.

As promised, here is another previously unreleased (as far as I know) track from Proof & Dilla, called “The Fizzo.” I heard about this track before I ever actually heard it from a very excited DJ Head back in ‘94, right around the time that F.C. (Funky Cowboys) was created. In his typical fashion when he had heard something that nobody else had, Head just giggled and said “man, Proof and Jaydee got this new record, man…” When I heard it I knew what Head was so amped-up about, these guys really had a crazy chemistry together. That’s T3 of Slum Village on the chorus.

I don’t want to do anything but remember P and his music today, so hopefully this will put you in the same headspace. Don’t ask about the photo, let’s just say Proof went through a Spongebob phase! Enjoy- until next year: BIG PROOF FOREVER.
