What Happened?: Otis Williams, Jr. aka OJ Da Juiceman was shot eight times in April 2008. he was released from the hospital a few days later and performed a show that same week.

How He Responded: What is it with rappers getting shot and then getting out of the hospital right after? According to an interview Juiceman gave to Angela Yee, he got shot on Sunday, left the hospital on Wednesday, and did a show on Friday while still on crutches. He claimed the shooting forced him to slow down—probably a bit easier to do with his now permanent limp—and focused on taking care of his family. He also started calling himself Wolverine.
