Despite most people firmly believing that rappers are simply spitting a bunch of lies within their music, there are plenty of hip-hop artists and known rap artists that have actually had a brush or two with death. More than a handful have had guns fired at them, have been shot point blank, stabbed, run over, or had any other manner of horrible attack brought down upon them. However, these men and women continue to thrive in this world, creating music that we can all enjoy and listen to. Here are ten rappers who narrowly escaped death.
In June of 2011, Kidd Kidd was fired upon and struck with a bullet just one week after meeting with 50 Cent. The young man was reportedly hit a total of six times, and was in a vehicle outside if his mother’s house in New Orleans when the attack occurred.
Not long after celebrating his 37th birthday, rapper Rick Ross was in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in January of 2013 when a gunman unloaded on his Rolls Royce with around two dozen bullets. Ross crashed his vehicle in an attempt to escape, but managed to walk away unscathed.
