50 Cent has been hospitalised after he was involved in a serious car accident last night (June 25).

According to US hip-hop website XXL, the rapper had been taken to hospital after suffering injuries to his neck and back.

He has now undergone further tests and has been released from hospital, along with his driver, with a source close to both revealing that they are both “fine”.

According to reports, the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was involved in a collision with a large ‘Mack’ lorry while travelling in his sports utility vehicle on the Long Island Expressway in New York City at just after 3am local time.

50 Cent is set to release his new album ‘Black Magic’ this summer. The rapper has promised that the LP, which will be his fifth studio LP and his first since 2009’s ‘Before I Self Destruct’, will “shake things up” when it arrives.

He previously slammed his label Interscope Records for failing to release the album, telling fans that they had “dropped the ball” and were “fucked up”. He also threatened to leak a single by fellow Interscope artist Dr Dre as a way of taking revenge.
