There are many who may pride themselves on taking a pretty extreme selfie, but everything pales in comparison to one rapper whose video went viral - after he was shot in the head. 

Compton rapper Teriq Royal was struck by bullet fragments from an AK-47, but remained remarkably casual about the whole ordeal as he took to Facebook to share his experience. 

"Yes me and the homies got shot at couple days ago," he wrote. "AK47 bullet flew past my head and I was hit with the bullet fragments, 3 frags stuck in my forehead for life. They stopped right on my skull before they could enter my brain... GOD IS REAL YALL!"

He added: "I should've died that night but I felt God move me back just enough for the bullet to miss. Take this life shit serious! I was almost on a T-shirt. I'm just blessed enough to be here for a reason, can't nobody stop Gods plans."

Check out the selfie video of his ordeal below
