50 Cent Doing Fine After Car Accident

Posted on June 26, 2012

New York rapper 50 Cent is invincible, immortal and will probably outlive legendary West Coast rapper 2Pac.

That’s good news considering that 50 Cent almost died Tuesday morning when a big rig rear-ended his bulletproof SUV.

The 36-year-old MC was driving along the Long Island Expressway in New York City when the collision occurred. The driver of the other vehicle apparently lost control of the truck and hit 50 Cent’s SUV, nearly flipping it over.

Luckily, 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, survived the collision. He sustained minor neck and back injuries and was transported to New York Hospital Queens. He was released following observation and is reportedly doing fine.

After a troubled youth in South Jamaica Queens where he made his living selling crack, 50 Cent rose to fame in the early 2000s. In 2003, 50 Cent released “Get Rich Or Die Tryin,’” his first album on a major label. Two years later, he released “The Massacre,” which catapulted him to hip hop superstardom.

Not only is he an actor, entrepreneur, investor, producer and rapper, but he founded hip hop label G-Unit Records in 2003. More recently, 50 Cent founded G-Note Records in late 2010 to represent artists from other genres of music.

Life is good for 50 Cent, but it could have turned out differently for him. Back in May of 2000, he was shot nine times while he was sitting in his car outside of his grandmother’s former home in Queens. The gunman fired several rounds and hit 50 Cent on his arm, hand, hip chest, both of his legs and even his left cheek. The gunshot wound to the left side of his face caused some damage to his mouth. The bullet shaved off part of his gums and left a hole between the top and bottom rows of his teeth, causing him to have slurred speech. Not one of those nine gunshot wounds, however, succeeded in bringing him down. The indestructible rapper lived to tell about it.

He spent 13 days in the hospital and endured five months of physical therapy after he was shot in 2000. Early this morning, he spent a few hours in the hospital after his accident before he was discharged. Now 50 Cent can concentrate on what’s really important:  making money and beefing with other rappers.
