Rapper 50 Cent is out of hospital after being injured in a car accident in New York.

The Grammy winner, who real name is Curtis Jackson, was taken to hospital on Monday after being hurt in a car crash on New York's Long Island Expressway late last night.

A representative for 50 Cent said he was taken to New York Hospital Queens where he was treated for "minor neck and back injuries" and is now "doing fine".

Bruce Miller, who was driving the car, was also injured and has been released from the hospital. Onlookers described the accident as 'horrific'

The Get Rich or Die Tryin' star famously survived a brush with death in 2000.

The former drug dealer was shot at and struck by nine bullets during an incident outside his grandmother's former home. Recalling the incident he said:

'It happens so fast that you don't even get a chance to shoot back...

'I was scared the whole time... I was looking in the rear-view mirror like, Oh ...somebody shot me in the face! It burns, burns, burns."'
