Spice 1 Shot, Remains In Critical Condition

While details are still emerging, XXLMAG.COM has learned that veteran Bay Area rapper Spice 1 was shot on Monday (December 3). According to the rapper’s manager, Six, Spice was shot in his hometown of Hayward, California on Monday afternoon. “There’s been all sorts of crazy rumors that he died,” says Six. “He is in critical condition, but it looks like he’s going to pull through.”

Spice, whose real name is Robert Green, is being held at an undisclosed hospital, which is being kept secret due to the unknown circumstances surrounding the shooting. “They really don’t know the nature of it—if it was random or what,” explains Six.

After signing with Jive Records in 1992, Spice 1 went on to become one of the Bay Area’s most prominent rappers throughout the ’90s, working with everyone from 2Pac to Method Man and racking up several gold albums. Since leaving Jive in 2000, Spice has released over ten albums independently.
