After dropping out of college in 2001, G-Unit rapper Game began selling drugs and hanging out with a local gang. In October of the same year, he was accosted by an upset customer and shot five times execution-style. He was able to use his cell phone to call an ambulance before falling into a three-day coma. It was during his recovery that he discovered a love of hip-hop.
