Rapper 50 Cent jumped back into the driving seat last week and hit a racetrack in New Jersey, four days after he was hospitalized following a car crash.

The In Da Club hitmaker, real name Curtis Jackson, was driving in Long Island, New York on June 26 when his vehicle collided with a tractor trailer in the early hours of the morning.

He was hospitalized for "minor neck and back injuries" and released shortly afterwards and his representative assured fans he was "doing fine".

And it seems the horrific accident didn't put 50 off from driving - he headed to the Pole Position Raceway on Friday for a few laps of high-speed go-kart racing.

According to the New York Post's Page Six gossip column, the hip-hop star specifically requested to drive the number five kart - in reference to his upcoming album, 5 (Murder by Numbers).
