Compton, California emcee Teriq Royal posted a video on Facebook after he was shot in the head with bullet fragments from an AK-47.

“I guess I’m really a rap nigga now,” Royal says with his face bloodied. “I just got shot. Me and my soldiers out here, nigga.”

He also posted a photo of his X-ray, which shows the three fragments. Royal says the fragments stopped before hitting his brain and that he will live with them for the rest of his life.
