He might be a gangsta, but 50 Cent isn’t averse to having a few cuddly friends to keep him company in sick bay.
The rapper-actor otherwise known as Curtis Jackson revealed via his Twitter page that he is on the rebound after being hospitalized this week for an undisclosed ailment.
“I’m feeling better today,” he tweeted along with a twitpic of himself in his hospital bed. “I think I’m gonna get out of the hospital soon. EMINEM called me last night I love him that’s my boy.”
50 Cent also gave a shoutout to DJ Drama, with whom Fiddy worked on his latest mixtape, Gangsta Grillz: Lost Tape, and posted a picture of him surrounded by stuff animals.
“Do not do a @djdrama gangsta grillz this is all I get. Ain’t this a b—h. I give 15 tracks you give me this,” he tweeted.
Fiddy first informed his followers he was under doctors’ supervision yesterday afternoon, when he wrote to tell them the mixtape would drop on schedule.
“I’m in the hospital but my gangsta grillz LOST TAPE is done so it will be out on time,” he said.
A little later, he put out a call to close pal, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, whom he escorted to the ring less than two weeks ago in the latter’s successful title bout.
“I don’t want to go into surgery. @FloydMayweather call my phone why your phone off,” he added.
DJ Drama told the New York Daily News Fiddy’s illness was from a stomach virus.
No word if he ever underwent an operation, but we’re glad to see 50 Cent on the mend, especially after the “In Da Club” emcee has been spending quite a bit of time giving back to his community.
Last Friday, 50 Cent turned up at City Harvest’s Food Resource Facility in New York City to lend his support to a hunger relief campaign started by Feeding America to provide over 200 meals to hungry Americans.
The hip-hopster volunteered by helping pack fresh produce for City Harvest to hand out to local New York families.
