If London is the new South Central then Professor Green would be UK’s 50 Cent. With songs like ‘Before I Die’ and ‘Hard Night Out’, it was just a matter of time before someone decided to up the Prof’s street cred… by stabbing him in the neck!
After a minor dispute escalated, Prof Green was stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle last Friday while enjoying a night out at Dirty Canvas. Ironically, he was stabbed in the left side of his neck where he had a tattoo saying ‘Lucky’.
ThreeÂ suspects have since been detained and Green is recovering after 3 hours of surgery. According to doctors, it’s a miracle that the man’s main arteries were brushed but left intact. 40 stitches later, Green stands to make a full recovery.
The young rapper has won over 100 MC battles in his career and claimed his status as the world’s 2nd best MC in the Power Summit 50k Battle in the Bahamas, losing out to favourite Jin in the final after beating many other of top MCs.
With rhymes that would make Eminem shiver, we’re sure that Prof Green will be back rappin about his near death experience soon enough. But for now, you can hit up the Prof’s tunes at www.myspace.com/professorgreen. And for a stabbing good intro to Professor Green, check out the ‘Before I Die’ video below.
