Robert Lee Green, Jr. (born July 2, 1970), better known by his stage name Spice 1 (an acronym for "Sex, Pistols, Indo, Cash and Entertainment") is an American rapper from Hayward, California. He began releasing albums in 1992.
Green attended Mt. Eden High School in Hayward. According to Green, he once stole a car that resembled one owned by Too Short and used it to make "doughnuts" (doughnut shaped tire burns) on the street outside of Too Short's mother's house, in an attempt to impress the older rapper.
When Green received his first large check for his music, he stopped selling drugs and focused on making music instead.
In a recording session on September 7, 1996, Green, 2pac and Kokane recorded the song Fame together, which is believed to be the last song that 2pac ever recorded before getting shot in Las Vegas later that same night. Green, being a close personal friend of the late rapper, was on his way to meet up with 2pac in Las Vegas for an after party when he received the news that 2pac had been shot.
Green was shot in the chest on December 3, 2007 while sitting in his car outside his parents' home in Hayward. He recovered.
