Searching For Jerry Garcia

Searching for Jerry Garcia is the second and final studio album by Detroit rapper Proof of D12, released on August 9, 2005. It was the only solo album that Proof released on a major label before his death. It reached number 65 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Albums Chart. The album is named after Grateful Dead member Jerry Garcia. The album's release date, August 9, 2005, intentionally coincided with the ten-year anniversary of Garcia's death.

Proof used the title of this album and the original song titles ("Jump Biatch" was originally "Eric Clapton Jr.") to refer to famous deaths that people are uncertain about. He extends this concept to express suicidal thoughts of his own on the track "Kurt Kobain".
