British rapper DJ Ironik is convinced he's lucky to be alive after he was stabbed on Saturday (06Nov10), insisting the attack could have been "much worse".
The 22-year-old hip-hop star, real name James Charters, was returning home after a gig when he was cornered by thugs in Highgate, North London, who stole his jewellery and knifed him in the buttock.
Charters is recovering well and he's grateful to have survived the ordeal.
He says, "It could have been much worse."
