DETROIT - Obie Trice, a protege of Eminem, was shot early Saturday while driving on a city highway, police said.

Someone in another car shot through the back window of 28-year-old Trice's vehicle as he drove along the Lodge Freeway around 1:10 a.m., said Michigan State Police Sgt. Mario Gonzales.

The Detroit native managed to continue driving and got off the freeway in the suburb of Southfield, where his girlfriend, also in the vehicle, flagged down police, Gonzales said. The girlfriend wasn't wounded.

Police didn't release where the bullet struck Trice. He was taken to Providence Hospital, where he was treated and released, said hospital spokesman Brian Taylor.

There were no suspects in the shooting, which was under investigation by state police detectives, Gonzales said.

Trice contributed to the song "Drips" on Eminem's 2002 album "The Eminem Show" and got more exposure by delivering the opening lines "Obie Trice-real name, no gimmicks" on the lead single "Without Me."

In addition to Eminem, Trice also has rapped with 50 Cent. Trice's 2003 debut album "Cheers" was produced by Eminem, and he also had a small part in the feature film "8 Mile," which starred Eminem.

Trice was signed to Eminem's label, Shady Records, a joint venture with Universal Music Group's Interscope Records. Messages seeking comment were left Saturday for UMG and Shady Records.

OBIE TRICE RECOVERING; SUSPECT(S)
STILL AT LARGE: Rapper says shooter
was probably a hater.




*The bullet that entered rapper Obie
Trice’s head as he drove his Range Rover
on a Detroit freeway Saturday is still there,
he tells the Web site Allhiphop.com.

“They didn’t take the bullet out my head,”
he says. “It didn’t penetrate my skull or nothing,
but they didn’t want to go inside my head
and mess with the blood vessels.”

The Eminem protégé says he will get
a second opinion before deciding whether
or not to have the cap surgically removed.

Meanwhile, police continue to look for
anyone who may have seen the shooting,
which Trice believes may have occurred
out of jealousy.

He says: “I don’t know where it came
from, you know what I’m saying? I really don’t
have a take on that, a lot of people are jealous,
and jealous, and envious and hateful.

Trice's sophomore album, “Second
Round's On Me,” is due out later this year.

I liked his first CD, best of luck to him.
