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.
