Jay Rock Seriously Injured In Motorcycle Accident

Our thoughts and prayers are with Californian hip-hop artist Jay Rock tonight as he is currently hospitalised following an motorcycle accident.

The news was broken on Twitter by Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) CEO, Anthony Top Dawg Tiffith, shortly after Kendrick Lamar thanked his TDE family during his acceptance speech for the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album for To Pimp a Butterfly.

Before fans had too much time to consider the absolute worst case situation, Top Dawg tweeted an update an hour later, saying that Jay has a lot of broken bones but is thankfully not in critical condition.

The 30-year-old rhymer is best known for his work with the Black Hippy crew alongside Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, and Ab-Soul, as well as for his 2015 album 90059.

Jay Rock, along with other prominent members of the TDE crew including Ab-Soul and Isaiah Rashad, recently travelled to the Skid Row neighbourhood in downtown L.A., which contains one of the nation’s largest homeless communities, to make an array of donations from clothes to electronics. The donation effort is part of TDE’s “Each One, Teach One” campaign, and after Skid Row, the group visited the Union Rescue.

“When you blessed, you gotta bless others, man. It’s only right,” Jay Rock tells the camera during the clip below.

Jay Rock is the second rapper to be seriously injured in the last five months. Fetty Wap came off his motorbike last September, but fortunately was not in a critical condition and is now back riding.

We wish Jay Rock all the best in his recovery and hope he is back making music and doing good in the community soon.
