Not only is the rap game stressful, it can be dangerous as well. 

Of all the emcees that rap about (and glamorize) gun violence, very few of them are actually about that life, but that doesn't mean they don't get caught up in it from time to time. We've compiled a list of 15 rappers that have been fired on and lived to tell the tale. Some cases may be more severe than others, but whether you take one bullet or several, survival isn't guaranteed. We've lost more than one legend since hip-hop's inception. 

Before we continue, we'd like to say rest in peace to 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Big L, Mac Dre, Freaky Tah, Jam Master Jay, Soulja Slim, Charizma, Proof, Fat Pat, Lil Phat, Slim Dunkin, Lil Snupe and any other artist that has passed away as a result of gun violence.
