Obie Trice has issued a statement through his label about his shooting:

"As previously reported, Trice was shot at in his car whilst driving along a Michigan freeway with his girlfriend. [Trice] was swiftly discharged from hospital and is recovering at home, but apparently he will need to see a surgeon again soon as his injuries are a little more serious than initial reports suggested: a bullet is still lodged in his head, as doctors judged it too risky to move due to its position."

Trice himself blames the city, and not the company he keeps:

"This is living in Detroit, and that's all. You hear about it because it's me, I got ties to Eminem or whatever, but I got people that are out there dealing with it every single day where I'm from. As far as all the rumours and guessing games, people talking road rage and all that nonsense, I'm not getting involved in any of that right now."

Well, no, because you've got a bullet stuck in your head. The phrase "that's got to hurt" has never been so apt.
