What Happened? At age 16, D'Juan Hart aka Young Dro was shot in the stomach and back. It took him a year to recover, and he had to wear a colostomy bag for a short time.
How He Responded: Like many others on this list, Dro took the shooting as a sign he needed to get out of the ghetto and step up his rap game. He ended up signing a deal in the early 2000s and releasing <em>I Got That Dro</em>. After that he linked with his old friend T.I., signed to Grand Hustle, and dropped "Shoulder Lean," making a major impact.
