Once upon a time, 50 Cent had birthdays on his mind.
But 2003 was a long time ago, and now the rapper’s been weighed down by the other end of that spectrum, as evidenced by a number despondent dispatches he sent out on his Twitter account recently.
“I don’t think I’m gonna live much longer,” the rapper told his nearly five-and-a-half million followers.
Shortly before that, 50 had lamented, “I have lost all the faith in the team I’m on,” alluding to the troubles he and his label Interscope have been having. “I have nothing left to say,” the rapper continued. “I will not be promoting my music.”
Of course, 50 — who reportedly made more than $50 million when he “took quarter-water and sold it for two bucks” as VitaminWater — does have something to promote: his new six-hour energy drink, Street King.
Perhaps it was with that in mind that the rapper assured us in a later tweet, “To be conscious that life is short is not suicidal.” Though 50 did add,”I’m good if I die tonight.”
