    Rapper Jim Jones has broken his silence on a car crash from earlier this month which nearly killed him. He addresses the incident, which occurred on January 17th, on the new track, "Crash," the lyrics of which are posted below.

    "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.' ..."

    What do you think of Jones' lyrics for "Crash?"
