How much do you know about rapper Sauce Gohan? If you already listen to his music, you might know a few things about him, provided you listen carefully. On the other hand, you may also want to know the 10 things about the rapper that are listed right here.
1. He’s a survivor
At one point, he was actually sitting in traffic in Chicago when someone ran up and shot through his passenger side window, striking him in the face. Although several shots were fired, it’s not known how many shots actually struck him. However, one bullet did lodge behind his right eye. Despite the fact that he suffered a potentially serious shot to the head that could have easily been fatal, he survived. That fact alone is something worth mentioning.
2. He doesn’t let obstacles stand in his way
As you can see, he doesn’t allow obstacles to get in the way of him achieving the things he wants to achieve in life. Like many rap artists, he hasn’t exactly had the easiest life. As opposed to allowing all of those hardships to break him, he merely turned them into material for his music and continued to excel, despite the challenges that he was facing.
3. He tends to push through, no matter what happens around him
In addition to refusing to allow obstacles to get in his way, he learned a long time ago to keep pushing, even when there is total chaos around him. It’s something that he had to learn as a survival technique while he was growing up and it has continued to serve him well as an adult. In fact, he’s quite happy about the fact that he’s able to keep a laser-like focus in order to achieve his goals of being a hip hop star, even when nothing is going according to plan around him. It has helped him move forward during times of his life when it would have otherwise been almost impossible to do so.
4. He tries to send a message to his fans
He wants his fans to understand that violence is never the answer, love is. He tries to get that message across in his music but whenever he feels like people aren’t really listening, he takes to social media to say it in a more direct manner. He has been a victim of violence. In fact, he’s grown up around it for the majority of his life. As far as he’s concerned, there is no room for such things in the world and nothing will get better until more people start taking a stand against it.
5. That bullet is still lodged in his head
If you remember from earlier how he was once shot in the head, it’s important to note that the bullet is still there. Doctors believed that it could potentially do more harm than good to try and remove it, so they chose to leave it in place. Unless he starts having symptoms because of it at some point in the future, it will probably remain there for the rest of his life. It’s also worth noting that this particular bullet was the result of him being shot in the temple, something that is almost always fatal.
6. He tends to take the good with the bad
He definitely has a tendency to take the good days with the bad days. This is something that a lot of people struggle with. Perhaps it’s because he didn’t have the easiest life growing up or maybe it’s just because he’s reached a level of maturity to be able to understand that you have to be able to measure out the good with the bad in order to have a well-rounded life that’s meaningful. Whatever the reason, he tends to handle the speed bumps that life sometimes throws at you better than most individuals.
7. He works hard to be a positive influence
He genuinely strives to be a positive influence for the people who listen to his music. It would probably be easy for him to sing a lot of songs about being angry and getting revenge, but as far as he’s concerned, that doesn’t get you anywhere. Instead, he would much rather help people understand that it is possible to get over bad experiences in life in order to be better as a result of them as opposed to giving in to them.
8. He’s trying to fulfill his life’s purpose
Through his music, he is trying to fulfill what he believes is his life’s purpose. He hopes that in the process, he can inspire a few people along the way. If he can make a difference in just one life, then he considers it an endeavor worth pursuing.
9. He has a great deal of faith
He definitely does have a great deal of faith and he says that it is his faith that has helped him get through so many challenges in life. It’s something that he routinely talks about on social media, making no qualms about the fact that he would never have gotten this far if not for his faith.
10. He thinks you should work hard for what you want
He has always believed that in order to achieve great things, you have to put in a great deal of effort. As a result, he thinks that the best thing anyone can do is keep their head down and keep working in order to achieve what they want. He often remarks that nothing good happens if you don’t put effort into it. As a matter of fact, he’s usually fairly quick to silence people who complain about having to do something, as he points out that they should be grateful to have the opportunity to achieve something.
