Rooting for Raw

Dice Raw, rapper with hip hop collective The Roots, is having problems walking after being injured in a hairy traffic accident in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on 5 January.

The rap artist, whose real name is Karl Jenkins, claims a woman drove her car through a red light and collided into his Jaguar, leaving him with cuts to his face and injuries to his ankle and knee. After the crash he was treated in a local hospital.

The star told Allhiphop.com: ‘It happened so fast - I was turning and this silly b**ch decided she couldn't wait two seconds and swerved around someone that was stopped and blew through the red light. My car got totalled, my face got all cut up, my ankle and knee are f**ked and I still can't walk.’

Surprised at the help he has received from friends and family after the crash, Raw reveals that the experience has inspired him to get more involved in charity work once he's fully recovered.

He said: ‘It made me realise I got good people around me - my parents dropped everything and came through... Since I'm laid up now for almost a week, I've been thinking about all the handicap people who are less fortunate... I'm definitely going to be figuring out how to get more involved and give my time to handicap organisations to raise awareness.’
