50 Cent Says Bulletproof SUV Protected Him In Car Accident & Dismisses Publicity Stunt Theories

Fif says his choice of wheels saved his life: "We would've flipped if it was a regular truck."

It's not uncommon for an artist of 50 Cent's stature to ride around in a bulletproof vehicle. But according to the Queens rapper, the car was responsible for saving him from more than bullets when he was rear-ended by a Mack Truck earlier this week.

In an interview with MTV News, 50 explained that the car's sturdiness protected him. "We spun off into the rail. We would've flipped if it was a regular truck, but the truck weighs a ton because it has additional stuff in it."

50 detailed the reason behind the accident. "We were just riding down the LIE and a Mack Truck — he said he lost control of the vehicle later to police officers because his load shifted."

"He tried to brake, his load shifted, and he lost control and he ran into the back of the truck," explained Fif.  "It did more damage to the Mack Truck than it did to my truck, 'cause I got a level six; it's a bulletproof vehicle. It's the same standard as what they're moving Obama around in."

Finally 50 dismissed any idea that he staged the accident for publicity. "Trust me, I have enough money to not hit myself with a Mack Truck to try to get a few dollars," he said. "What's the thought process on this? It makes no sense to me."

    When people claimed he did it for publicity to delay his album I thought if he did pull of a stunt it would have been to amp up his album with '9 bullets can't stop me, not even a mack truck' etc. But I can't see him stoopin this low I think he would have gone in the club to throw some bottles at some bitches!

    50 Cent has been pulling these stunts for a couple of weeks now. The SK feed a billion children thing, the anti bullying book, the stomach flu, now this. Why do we only hear about this stuff when he has an album coming out?? Google this incident...No one believes him anymore.

    "Trust me, I have enough money to not hit myself with a Mack Truck to try to get a few dollars." All those millions yet no album in stores. No more G Unit. No friends. No respect. No acting lessons. Publicity stunts are all he really has left.

    50 Cent: - 1 good album - constanly trying to make a new GRODT - boring flow and voice - starts fake beefs for attention or crashes his car for attention. - always the same subject matter: money, bitches, guns - if he is so gangster why he doesnt live in the hood - is a worse actor - is an example of whats wrong with hiphop nowadays.

      make your favorite rappers albums sound irrelevant????? my favourite rappers are: biggie, big l, big pun, kool g rap and krs one and they shit on 50 cent!!!! 50 cent aint relevant since 2003!!!!!

    • >_

      50 cent had one good album? really? I would say its fair to say he had 3 great albums, and numerous mix tapes that make your favorite rappers albums sound irrelevant. Also, just a guess, he probably doesn't live in the "hood" anymore, cause he doesn't want to get robbed or shot now that hes loaded. Name me one rapper that doesn't talk about "money, bitches and guns" also, u forgot drugs and murder. And if you want to go to the source to whats wrong with hip hop these days, look at the "Young Money Cash Money Billionaires" label; which sounds like a fucking child who just watched Austin Powers made up the name.
