Eminem protege Obie Trice was shot in the face and survived early New Year's Eve morning after what appears to have been a road rage attack.

According to Michigan police, Trice was driving northbound with his girlfriend on the Lodge Freeway in Detroit at around 1am Saturday morning when another car approached and shots were fired. Trice was hit in the head, but managed to exit the freeway in the Southfield suburb where his girlfriend flagged police.

Trice was taken to Providence Hospital where he was listed in good condition and released according to hospital spokesman Brian Taylor.

Police are investigating the shooting and have no leads as to the identity of the shooter.

However, sources speculate the shooting could have been a case of road rage and that the shooter had no idea of the rapper's celebrity.

Games' Brother Airs His Ass Out

Recently had an exclusive interview with 'The Game' brother, Big Fase 100. The following paints a side of The Black Wallstreet you've never seen before...

In The Documentary's liner notes, The Game credits Big Fase 100 for “moldin’ me into the man I am today.� However, Fase, paternal blood brother of Game, says he's through with Black Wall Street - a company he helped found. Fase charges that he and others in his tightly knit Compton community rallied behind The Game only for the wildly successful rapper to turn on them. Meanwhile, the Game alleges that he’s been financially abused to the sum of $1.5 million and other expenses.

The Cedar Block Piru Blood remains committed to a career in entertainment with or without Game's cosign. Big Fase 100 has started My World Management, steering the careers of Glasses Malone, Life and other rap artists. With their rift widening, is this a case of "Game & Abel" or sibling rivalry waiting to heal itself? spoke to Big Fase 100 in search of some insight.

MTV's Mixtape Tuesday 12-26-05

Artist: DJ Vlad and Roc Raida Representing: The lab Mixtape: Rock Phenomenon 411: DJ Vlad (a.k.a. the Butcher) teamed up with Roc Raida to deliver a mixtape in the same vein as Vlad's Rap Phenomenon series ... except that rap verses from the likes of Tupac, Jay-Z and M.O.P. are mixed with tracks from rockers like Nirvana, AC/DC, Korn and Ozzy Osbourne. Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda hosts. Read on to hear from the Butcher about his almost two-year production. Joints To Check For: * "Tupac Vs. Talib Kweli Vs. Rush." " 'Tom Sawyer' was the Rush record we used," Vlad began to explain. "It's really a DJ's type of song. Talib Kweli actually came in the studio for this one. That's an original verse from him. He heard it and was juiced, like, 'Let's do it. Yeah, that's the one.' Talib really didn't know the Rush beat, but he was into what Tupac was saying. Kweli started rapping like, 'It was the night before Pac died and all through the 'hood/ Ain't a n---a was sleeping, and they wanna know what's really good/ Did we lose a soldier and gain a angel?/ Streets quiet down and let me express my anger.' Pac's verse was from, I believe, 'One Day at a Time.' "

Eminem Gets Back With Kim; Hopes To Remarry

Eminem has reunited with ex-wife Kimberly Mathers.

"We have reconciled and are probably going to remarry," Eminem told Detroit radio station WKQI-FM Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

The pair divorced in 2001 after a turbulent relationship, yet Eminem still referred to Mathers as "my wife Kim" in the interview. They were married in 1999.

In song, Eminem has lyrically abused, killed, cursed his wife and even has a gravesite tattoo on his stomach emblazed with “Kim: Rot in Pieces.�

The interview is the only one that the Detroit rapper will conduct to promote his new greatest hits collection, Curtain Call. The rapper also stated that, while he isn’t retiring, his future is in question.

"I'm at a point in my life right now where I feel like I don't know where my career is going. This is the reason that we called it Curtain Call, because this could be the final thing,� he said. “We don't know."

Game Talks 'Stop Snitchin'' DVD

Rapper The Game is set to release "Stop Snitchin, Stop Lyin," a controversial tell all DVD and mix-tape.

"Stop Snitchin', Stop Lyin'" features the multi-platinum Compton rapper candidly talking about his rap career, personal life, ex-label mates and his fall out with G-Unit, his former crew.

"It's a tell all DVD about the in's and outs of the whole beef between G-Unit and me from the beginning to the end," Game told "I along with the rest of the world, am growing tired of 50 cent and his antics. G-Unit is dying and I am the reason. This is the end. After this, the DVD and mixtape 'Stop Snitchin, Stop Lyin' is the last of this whole beef s**t with them clowns."

The DVD also features Game on a mission to hunt down 50 Cent that takes him from Los Angeles through New York City (including a stop at the G-UNot billboard in Jamaica Queens), finally ending in Farmington, Connecticut outside of 50's luxurious mansion.

MTV's Mixtape Monday 12-5-05

Artists: Eminem, the Game and Dr. Dre

Representing: Shady/Aftermath

Mixtapes: Stan's Mixtape (Eminem), Stop Snitchin, Stop Lyin (Game) and Dretox (Dre)

411: Let's clear a few things up right off the bat: Stan's Mixtape can only be found on the deluxe edition of Em's Curtain Call greatest-hits album. We just had to mention it this week because you'll find a lot of Em's street-applauded verses on there, like "Renegade." Game's Stop Snitchin, Stop Lyin is a joint venture with NJ Devil, DJ Clue and DJ Skee. There's a DVD of the same name that was supposed to accompany the "street soundtrack," but they had to push it back a little bit. The Dre mixtape was put together by DJ Exclusive and features a few unheard nuggets like the Dre-produced Busta Rhymes record "We Up to No Good" and a few other songs that were heavy in the streets but have never officially surfaced.

Joints To Check For:

* "Numb Encore" by Dr. Dre featuring Eminem, 50 Cent, Jay-Z and Linkin Park (Dretox). DJ Exclusive brings the best of both worlds together, mixing Eminem's "Encore" with Hov and Linkin Park's mash-up collaboration of the same name.
