Erick Sermon talked to MTV News to give what appears to be another explaination to his ‘don’t remember’ tale to Launch.com. Sermon revealed, “I’m 250 (pounds), I ain’t jumping from nothing. I just don’t get that. This is one of the best times in my life. Me jumping out the window, or trying to commit suicide, I was like ‘Are y’all serious?’ I’m like ‘Yo, where did they get that from?’ I just want to say that what they said is not true. I had just finished doing my video, I was excited about that. I was riding around, just happy and chillin’. Got to Jersey and that was it. Got to the wrong spot where I wasn’t supposed to be at. I woke up in the hospital.”
Erick Sermon talked to Launch.com following his bizarre accident on September 25 that left him hospitalized. Erick denied reports that it was a suicide attempt or that someone through him out a window, but honestly couldn’t figure out what happened. Sermon joked, “Redman said, ‘Somebody picked you up and threw you out?’ And Redman said, ‘E, ain’t nobody picked your big ass up and threw you nowhere!'”
Unfortunately they didn’t grill him to see if it was just some whacked publicity stunt for his new album.
Launch.com is reporting that earlier reports of rapper Erick Sermon being involved in a major car accident are untrue, but that he jumped out of a window in an apparent suicide attempt. Paterson, New Jersey Lieutenant Anthony Traina told Launch, “He did jump out of a window. I don’t know if it was suicide. Maybe girlfriend problems?”
