On Saturday (Jan. 14), Westiside Gunn issued a statement via his Twitter account regarding his friend and fellow Griselda Records artist.
"I was waiting until the official statement to be released please keep my brother in y’all prayers [palms up together emoji]," he tweeted. "He's a strong soul and fighter he's still talking bout GXFR x 227 forever!!! Just hearing them words broke me down but GOD IS THE GREATEST and BO gonna be better than ever."
Before his accident, Boldy James was gearing up to release a bountiful of new projects in 2023. Among them is an EP titled ADU, produced entirely by Real Bad Man. The EP was scheduled for release on Friday (Jan. 16), but obviously that will be postponed.
On Saturday, Real Bad Man posted a message on his Instagram Story regarding Boldy's accident and recovery.
"Been in touch with BOLDY and family all week," he wrote. "It's been hard not to post anything."
"He'll be back at it in no time," he continued. "We all know from Boldy's musical output, that guy can't be stopped..."
"Nothing but positive vibrations," RBM concluded.
Additionally, Boldy was supposed to release this year an album titled Drug Dilla that will include production from the late and great J Dilla.
Last year, Boldy James released four studio albums: Killing Nothing with Real Bad Man, Fair Exchange No Robbery with Nicholas Craven, Mr. Ten08 with Futurewave and Be That As It May with Cuns.
