LATEST: Rapper Beenie Man is promising fans he'll be fit and well and ready to perform at a Bob Marley tribute festival on Valentine's Day (14FEB04) as he recovers from a car crash.

The SLAM MC, 30, was taking an early morning drive in his HUMMER 4X4 when the vehicle flipped over, leaving the star with broken ribs and a broken nose - but he insists he won't disappoint fans at the BOB MARLEY DAY FESTIVAL.

Beenie Man, real name MOSES DAVIS, insists he's "committed" to headlining the first day of the 23rd annual festival in Long Beach, California.

The festival will also include performances by Wayne Wonder, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT and Sean Paul.
