Eminem's D12 bandmate PROOF has slammed reports the singer is ditching his rap career - insisting "he'll never quit".

Earlier this month (JUL05), reports claimed the WITHOUT ME rapper - real name MARSHALL MATHERS III - was planning to hang up his microphone following his current Anger Management Tour.

But Proof believes the 33-year-old will never stop recording material, hinting Eminem may even make another solo album in the near future.

Proof says, "I keep on telling people, Em will be 50 or 60 years old, and will be about to be an old man still playing with MCs.

"I don't think he'll ever quit. He might even drop another solo album. I can't see him not rapping - he's too crazy."
