50 Cent Airs Out Frustration on Twitter, Doesn’t Think He’ll “Live Much Longer”

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

    This nigga 50 cent is about to be the next rapper punchline. He’s about as relevant as Nelly or Will Smith. He never developed his skill, now his image is old.

    • Serbbral

      Well if Will Smith is what you call irrelevant, than I’d like to know who’s relevant. Will Smith is a Mega Star. He’s one of the BIGGEST stars of Hollywood. What are you talking about?

      • NZ Maori

        Tru dat. Will Smith one of my best actors n u dont get on that list 2 ez so what the fuk u talkin bout

  • DAMN

    i feel so sorry for this nigga… I think he said he’s about to die either for a random twitter rant because he just dont give a shit or because whatever secret cult he’s in or what he worshipped to get success said his time was up or he’s a threat to the higher ups

    I’ve been saying from the beginning that 50 is a little off. You don’t have the experiences that he’s had and come away scott-free. You will carry some baggage. I could go on the record and say this flirtation with death is only to gain popularity (like beefin’ with a million artists) but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and take the signs as someone who’s seriously contemplating his legacy and what he’s doing on earth.

    On the label politics……

    You reap what you sow. 50 killed how many careers in his short reign???? It’s only fitting that he gets played with the same fire he uses to burn others. We call that “Karma” where I’m from.

    50′s career is toast. Plain and simple. Let’s just hope he saved his loot, paid uncle sam, and has enough mental toughness to face his demons and survive. Cause judging from what’s out there in the realm of common knowledge, 50 has a lot of soul searching and atoning to do….

    Damn….. Alot of you 50 haters are probably laughing your asses off @ this, but you fail to see what’s really goin’ on. Interscope records has made Billions of dollars by promoting and marketing Controversy. The did it with Death Row and ‘Pac, they did it with Eminem, and did it with 50. The issue is that 50 has come to a point in his career where he need to change, he understands that entertaining beefs with these cops and man-kissers is only going to hurt his progress because this country is run by cops and man-kissers. He wants to move on and just make his music, without all of the media hype. But, when you are on a label that thrives on negativity and decide to move into a more positive direction there is going to be conflict. All people say is “50 just be startin’ beefs to boost sales” without realizing that this is a machination of the Label. The same with the suedo-gay rapper image of today. We are giving our culture away to the machine because we are too blinded by jealousy of an artist’s success to see the corruption of the mainstream industry and how it directly affects us. Trust me, If fif was out there still trying to start beefs and whatnot, he’d be having no trouble gettin’ records out.

    So everybody is gonna act like they never thought about dying?

      Ok….. We all know you ride for 50. You’ve made that abundantly clear in your previous comments. Just as I’ve made clear that his political acumen is equivalent to a large wrecking ball in hip-hop. It’s not a secret that I don’t hold a lot of respect for this cat’s confrontational behavior.

      But your comments here are a little disturbing. While other people may have thought about suicide, the tone in which you delivered your point of view is very matter-of-factly. The fact that he’s your favorite rapper seems more important than the HUMAN BEING. And that’s clearly incorrect.

      Ok…. In the biblical sense 50 pisses, sh*ts, eats, and breathes just like everyone else. He can’t take the money with him and will meet his maker as we all will.

      But the bigger issue is that you and several others refused in the past AND THE PRESENT to acknowledge the obvious…. Regardless of the music he puts out, or his financial status, dude has some serious emotional issues. And that’s based strictly off of what he has revealed to the public. Common knowledge.

      His behavior is disturbing….. Not because he’s JUST LIKE US. It’s because, like it or not, HE’S NOT LIKE US. He’s in a position that he built for himself. And while all of his fans (you included) failed to see the wrongness in his confrontational behavior, you now seek to give THE RAPPER a pass for the glass house he’s clearly built for himself.

      He’s 50 “The Rapper”. But don’t try to minimize “Curtis The Human Being” just cause you don’t want to speak negatively about your favorite hip-hop artist. When he’s wrong, he’s wrong. There’s a problem. Face it.

      Not preaching, Just my opinion.
