50 Cent made a series of tweets in which he said he was convinced death was just around the corner.
The 36-year-old hip hop star said: “Ill be honest I don’t think I’m gonna live much longer.”
50 Cent also insisted he is “good if I die tonight”.
It came after he had a lengthy Twitter rant about the state of his career.
50 Cent said: “I have lost all the faith in the team I’m on. I having 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 remembered.”
The rapper was alluding to his high profile falling out with his record label Interscope.
50 Cent has been attacking them in a flurry of internet messages, previously saying: “Were suppose to be on the same team with me.
“Music was so much fun for me now the people and politics involved disgust me.”
Perhaps the reason they are at loggerheads is the 50 Cent’s failure to replicate the sales success he enjoyed earlier in his career.
50 Cent’s 2003 debut album sold a whopping 8 million copies in the US alone, and is the fourth biggest selling rap album of all time.
It’s follow up The Massacre also did well, selling just short of 5 million copies in the States on its way to going five times platinum.
However 2007’s Curtis only went platinum, with sales of more than 1.3 million, while his most recent album 2009’s Before I Self Destruct fared even worse selling just 446,000 copies.
At least the rapper has been able to enjoy a profitable career away from the world of music.
50 Cent is believed to have made $100 million after tax after Coca Cola bought the drinks company Glaceau in 2007.
Fiddy, real name Curtis Jackson, had a stake in the company after producing the Vitamin Water drink Formula 50.
