Up-and-coming rapper Fetty Wap, whose debut album came out on Friday, was hospitalized Saturday after being struck by a car in his hometown of Paterson, New Jersey. Details of the accident are still vague, but according to onlookers the artist was riding his motorcycle when he collided with a vehicle driving in the opposite direction.
In several pictures from the scene, Fetty appears to be responsive but injured, with paramedics carrying him to an ambulance in a neck brace and on a stretcher. We'll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
