It’s been widely reported Bugzy Malone was “seriously injured” in a road accident last night in Bury.
Greater Manchester Police told reporters they were called to a collision between a car and a quad bike on Wednesday.
A 29-year-old man was taken to hospital with injuries that are not thought to be life-threatening.
Local and national press, however, have said it is the Manchester-born rapper and he has been named on social media.
A widely-shared video appears to show the artist, real name Aaron Davis, on the floor after the collision.
