50 Cent isn't the only G-Unit member to almost die in a hail of bullets.

18 years ago today, The Game was shot five times in his hometown of Compton. The incident left him in a coma for three days.

The 39-year old celebrated the occasion with one of his notoriously long Instagram captions.

OCTOBER 1ST 2001 ‼️ 18 years since I was in a coma after getting shot 5 times in the dope spot... I look at this video of the younger me & I can’t do anything but thank God for the opportunity to have a second chance. All I knew was Cedar Block Piru !!!! I’m tellin y’all, I was a real fuck up... I didn’t go nowhere without 3 guns on me... I used to play basketball wit a glock on my waist in the holster... Compton made me that way. 2 dead brothers, n everybody make in my family gang banned.... that was the way. Foster care... the system wouldn’t let me go back to my momma & then when They finally did.. I was different than my momma was used to.. I wasn’t her sweet 8 year old baby anymore.. So my momma didn’t want shit to do with me at that point, my granny died on me right after high school & crushed me... I was in & out the County Jail, hardcore gang banging... shoot outs wit rival crip niggas round my way, all my homies that were alive then that are dead now.... from then to now so much has changed for me... I didn’t have any children when I got shot now I have 3 & their doing amazing in life. Back then, I didn’t care if I lived or died & that was normal to me. I never expected nor cared to live past 25 years old. I literally didn’t give a fuck !!!! My childhood was rough.... sometimes I do not know how I made it out of all I’ve been through... but, I did... & I guess that’s the only important part of my story at this point in life. I’m here..... & I look at my kids & they have no idea what I went through so they could be here & have what they have..... #HateItOrLoveIt #HappySurvivalAnniversarySelf 🙏🏾
