50 Cent: Bulletproof car saved my life

Los Angeles - 50 Cent thinks his injuries from a recent car accident could have been worse if he wasn't travelling in a bulletproof vehicle.

The Candy Shop rapper was hospitalised last month after his SUV collided with a Mack Truck on the Long Island Expressway.

50 Cent spoke out about the collision, revealing that the driver of the other vehicle "lost control" because "his load shifted".

He told MTV News: "He tried to brake, his load shifted and he lost control and he ran into the back of (my) truck.

"It did more damage to the Mack Truck than it did to my truck, because I've got a level six - it's a bulletproof vehicle. It's the same standard as what they're moving Obama around in."

50 Cent also denied rumours that the incident was a publicity stunt ahead of the release of his latest studio album 5 (Murder by Numbers).

He continued: "Trust me, I have enough money to not hit myself with a Mack Truck to try to get a few dollars. What's the thought process on this? It makes no sense to me."
