Yes, those of you who had Spice 1 in the pool please hand your paperwork to members of the SF Weekly street team and collect your cash prize.

The 37-year-old rapper (real name: Robert Green) was driving his Cadillac Escalade through Hayward early yesterday morning when he was interrupted by a possible car-jacker. The assailant decided to leave Green a memento — a bullet in the chest.

Green, who has shared the mic with Method Man, Ice-T and 2Pac, is recovering in an East Bay hospital.

"He's in pain, but otherwise he's coming along really well," his mother, Jean Green-Craven, 57, told the Chronicle from Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
