With the success of his recently-released mixtape, The Big 10, 50 Cent should be riding high. Instead, because of issues with his label, the December/January XXL cover subject seems to losing hope in his career —and his life, as well.
“I have lost all the faith in the team I’m on,” Fif recently tweeted. “I have nothing left to say, I will not be promoting my music. I’m going to deliver this album then I have a film I wrote to focus on. I’m not upset, I’m just convinced this is not how I want to be remembered.”
The Queens native has been hinting at issues with his label for some time now but more of a surprise, though, was his explaining that he thinks his life may soon come to an end.
“Ill be honest, I don’t think I’m gonna live much longer,” he continued via the social media site. “That’s why I started my Street King movement. I want to mean more in other peoples’ lives.”
Later, Fif tried to clear the air about his comments.
“To be conscious that life is short is not suicidal,” he wrote. “I’m good if I die tonight I’ve taken care of the people who took care of me when I couldn’t take care my self.”
But prior to his explanation, the G-Unit general continued on his rant, telling a story.
“This morning I was looking out the window,” he began. “I saw a bird fly right on to ledge. It felt like he was looking right at me. I hit the window. He just looked at me like he new I couldn’t do anything through the glass. I was tripping; he sat there a minute then flew off. I’d like to a bird so I could fly and sh*t on the world. Then you all could say 50 sh*t on me. That’s luck, right ? Then don’t wipe the sh*t off.”
50 Cent’s new album is due out later in 2012. —Adam Fleischer
