Eminem is thinking about Boldy James this weekend after it was revealed that the Detroit rapper was rushed to hospital following a serious car crash.
On Monday (January 9), Boldy James (real name James Clay Jones III) was involved in a two-car accident that happened in the Detroit metropolitan area, the rapper’s publicist confirmed to HipHopDX.
Following the accident, he was taken to hospital in critical condition, suffering from broken vertebrae in his neck and orthopedic injuries. But after undergoing extensive surgery on his neck, he was taken out of ICU in a stable condition.
Boldy and his family said in a statement that they wanted to express their gratitude to “the incredible doctors and nurses that are taking care of him, and also to the communities’ emergency medical personnel and first responders.”
A number of artists have since taken to social media to offer comforting words of encouragement including fellow Detroit rapper Eminem.
“Sending out best wishes for a quick recovery for The D’s own @boldyjames!!!” Em tweeted followed by salute and prayer hands emojis.
