G-Unit leader 50 Cent is reportedly back on his feet after being hospitalized earlier in the week following a publicized New York City car wreck.

According to reports, Fif was spotted in New Jersey Thursday (June 28) for some go-kart racing.

50 Cent appears to be doing just fine after being injured in a car crash and hospitalized on Tuesday. And the accident hasn't made him afraid of driving fast. The rapper was spotted at Pole Position Raceway in Jersey City yesterday, zipping around the track for a few laps of kart racing. According to a spy, Fitty specifically requested the track's kart No. 5, in honor of his new album, "5 (Murder by Numbers)," which hits stores next week. He narrowly escaped disaster when his bulletproof SUV was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer on the Long Island Expressway. He was treated at a Queens hospital for neck and back injuries. Seemingly indestructible, Fitty is also famously known for surviving nine gunshots in 2000. (New York Post)
