Canibus

Born Germaine Williams, this Jamaican rapper already had a successful music career when he was inspired to drop everything and join the Army in 2002. He later told journalists he enlisted because he "wanted to get away from music...and do something different." Canibus was 28 when he enlisted, but discharged two years later after being caught smoking marijuana.
