Rapper 50 Cent was hospitalized briefly Tuesday morning after a car accidentin which truck hit his car from behind on the Long Island Expressway, according to his web site, ThisIs50.
His publicist said that the 36-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, had been treated for minor injuries to his neck and back at New York Hospital Queens and then released.
According to 50 Cent’s Web site, the car accident occurred when the driver of a Mack truck lost control after the load he was carrying shifted, causing the truck to hit the rear of the SUV with Mr. Jackson and his driver.
A spokesperson for the rapper said in a statement that 50 Cent “was treated for minor neck and back injuries. He was released this morning and is doing fine.”
The site published multiple pictures of 50 on a stretcher with a neck brace. There are also pictures of 50′s mangled SUV as well as photos of the truck that is said to have caused the accident.
50 Cent famously survived a 2000 attack in which he was shot nine times and in 2003 dropped his classic major-label debut Get Rich or Die Tryin’.
Fif has since built himself as one of rap’s biggest draws and smartest business minds, crafting lucrative deals in music and merchandising. Fif’s latest mixtape The Lost Tape was released in May and on July 3 the G-Unit Records CEO will be releasing his oft-delayed fifth studio album.
We don’t have all the details, but it sounds like 50 Cent was the victim in this car accident. The rapper would be well-served to contact a car accident attorney regarding his injuries.
50 Cent proved that you don’t have to be rap superstar to be the victim of a car accident and sustain injuries bad enough that require a stretcher and hospitalization. This type of car accidentcan happen to anyone.
