Obie Trice was shot once in the head on December 30, 2005 in Detroit, and the bullet remains in his head to this day. He had just left the Detroit club Envy, and was traveling down the Lodge Freeway with his girlfriend when a car pulled up in the middle lane and fired four shots through the back window. One of the last two bullets hit him in the back of the head. The rapper was transported by ambulance to Providence Hospital, and survived.

Doctors told him that had the bullet traveled less than an inch further, he wouldn't be alive today. The shooters were never apprehended.
