Jim Jones

New York rapper Jim Jones was involved in another car accident in January, more than a year after crashing his Bentley on the highway. He tweeted: “Just had a very bad accident pray for us” shortly after the crash and later that month, he explained the accident in detail with his song “Crash.”

"After they finished searching the van for drugs/The officer told me, if I don't believe in God, now is the time to start/I was halfway asleep, faded off the sour/Not knowing that could have been my last hour/I seen it clear, we was on 85/Road looking clear, doing 'bout 85/A smooth sail turned into a crazy ride/I wish I could say a n*gga watched the way he drive/But he was just trying to swerve a deer/I didn't get to see him but the Lord heard my prayers/Head-on collision with the car rail/And I'm a firm believer that God's real/I felt my van crushed against the hard steel/At that point, I can't tell y'all how my heart feel/I seen it happen, we were spinning like a bottle top/And I was praying, 'Lord, please make the bottle stop.'"
