Eminem has shared his support after Boldy James was left seriously injured after a car accident.
The Detroit rapper was involved in a two-car accident in his hometown last week, and is currently in a stable condition in hospital according to his publicist.
The “serious” accident took place on Monday, January 9, and left James with broken vertebrae in his neck among other injuries.
A statement from his representatives said: “After undergoing extensive surgery on his neck, Boldy has been removed from the intensive care unit and is now in stable condition.
“Boldy and his family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses that are taking care of him, and also to the communities’ emergency medical personnel and first responders.”
Among those to send well-wishes to James include his fellow Detroit rapper Eminem, who tweeted: “Sending out best wishes for a quick recovery for The D’s own @boldyjames!!!”

In other news, it was recently revealed by 50 Cent that Eminem turned down a significant sum to perform at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The tournament faced widespread criticism when it kicked off in November, regarding the death of migrant workers in the creation of stadiums and the country’s views on homosexuality, which is illegal in Qatar.
Speaking on Real 92.3’s Big Boy’s Neighbourhood, 50 Cent said that the pair were approached to perform a duet at the tournament, with $9million (£7.4million) allegedly on the table.
50 Cent has also announced plans to create a “modern” version of Eminem’s semi-autobiographical film 8 Mile. “It’s going to be big. I ain’t got no duds,” he said.
