In 2002 Kanye West suffered a near fatal car accident while leaving the studio, running head-on into traffic and into another vehicle. The rapper would get his jaw wired shut for facial reconstructive surgery. During his recovery he recorded “Through The Wire” with his jaw still surgically shut. The single would go on to become a major success, garnering a Grammy nomination.
