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.
One fan has gone the extra mile to show rapper Drake how much he means to her – by getting the hip hop star’s name tattooed across her forehead.
The mystery woman, who has shaved eyebrows and hair, adding to the dramatic look, visited an LA based tattoo parlor to make her bold statement.
It is thought that she may be responding to a lyric in one of Drake’s songs, Free Spirit, which instructs a lover or listeners to, “tat my name on you so I know its real”.
Photos of the bold new look found their way onto the internet and have now gone viral.

Even Drake (real name Aubrey Graham) has seen the photos, reacting in disbelief at the permanent addition to the girl’s face.
Drake told Mando Fresko that he wants to meet her and “understand what happened”.
The Canadian rapper said:
“That’s cool. I feel you 100 %. That to me is absolutely incredible. It was love.”
Drake then exploded in a rant against the tattoo artist:
“The guy who tatted it is a ****ing ***hole. You should lose your job and never do tattoos again.”
Drake even threatened to “f*** [the tattoo artist] up”.
The hip-hop artist appeared visibly upset by the pictures. He added:
“It’s crazy, it’s surreal- I don’t even want to look at it anymore.”
Drake is said not to have any tattoos himself.
Meanwhile Kevin Campbell, the tattoo artist at LA parlor Will Rise, who is responsible for the work, has spoken out about his decision to go ahead. “She was really psyched about it. She had the sh—y font all picked out on her iPhone ready to go and was pretty adamant about putting it on her forehead.”
Kevin Campbell, who claims he asked the woman three times if she was sure about the inking, and explained possible future consequences to her, told Vice magazine:
“She acted as if she had planned it out for a while; though I’m not really sure how much extended coherent thought could actually go into getting such a stupid tattoo on your forehead.”
Kevin Campbell assumed because of the neighborhood that it was a gang-related tattoo.
