The Roots member, Dice Raw is recovering from a car accident last Wednesday in North Philadelphia. Raw was en route to Shade 45 when his Jaguar XK convertible was hit by a motorist who ran a red light. Dice gives allhiphop the details on what happened.
“It happened so fast – I was turning and this silly bitch decided she couldn’t wait two seconds and swerved around someone that was stopped and blew through the red light. My car got totaled, my face got all cut up, my ankle and knee are fucked and I still can’t walk.I did get to call in to do the interview, but Thought, Truck, and STS went in on a crazy long freestyle and I couldn’t like jump in over the phone. It was like being a kid and watching your friends playin right outside your window and you stuck in the house. But they really went in and killed that shit and it’s always good to see your people doing their thing. It made me realize I got good people around me though – my parents dropped everything and came through and I want to shout out my man D and my partner Tom who came and chilled with me in the hospital while they stitched my shit up. D and my friend Montez (studio manager at Larry Gold’s) got me home from the hospital and into my crib. Since I’m laid up now for almost a week, I’ve been thinking about all the handicap people who are less fortunate then everybody that walks around and does whatever they want whenever they want. I’m definitely going to be figuring out how to get more involved and give my time to handicap organizations to raise awareness.”
