Proof’s Last Project-Take Back the Land by Davey D

Before the tragic demise of Detroit’s unofficial mayor, hip hop artist Big Proof of D-12, he and his record label Iron Fist had embraced a groundbreaking hip hop / rap project called ‘Take Back the Land’.

It was designed to give headz a much needed perspective on how they should be spending and investing their money. Instead of blinging with chains, how about blinging with land?

Buying land and having a historical understanding of how landownership came about and has impacted Black people was an important message Proof wanted folks to have.

On this album, everyone from Professor Griff, to the Last Poets to the Abyss and M-1 of dead prez are featured.

In our interview with Proof’s former manager Kali, he speaks about the type of man Proof was and more importantly was evolving to be. He talked about his desire to be independent and to control his creations. Kali also talks about the type of impact Proof had on the city of Detroit, during his life and after his death.
