    WENN reports that rapper (and Eminem's Bad Meets Evil cohort) Royce da 5'9" is still suffering from a 2009 injury after fracturing a bone in an arm wrestling challenge! Yikes. That'll teach kids not to arm wrestle, right?

    Here's what happened: Royce was talked into the battle to impress some female onlookers while on tour in Norway and he was close to beating his contender for a second time when he twisted his left arm. Ouch!

    He told WENN that "it was a spiral fracture; I broke my arm. This was… a couple years ago. I was wrestling somebody in Norway and he challenged me… to arm wrestle." However, his arm got positioned at "some weird angle" and his humerus "just popped." My arm hurts thinking about it.

    The injury needed surgery, requiring plates and pins, and left a six-inch scar. It also hampered his ability to workout at the gym.

    We hope his arm feels better as time goes on!

    Who is your favorite rapper?
