50 Cent has been admitted to hospital for a reason that is yet to be confirmed. The 36-year-old rapper, who will be releasing his new mixtape, "The Lost Tape", in the U.S. next Tuesday, May 22, took to his Twitter account on Wednesday, May 16 to share several photos of him lying in a hospital bed.
Along with the first picture, Fiddy tweeted, "I'm in the hospital but my gangsta grillz LOST TAPE is done so it will be out on time." When posting the second one, the "Baby by Me" MC alluded to an imminent surgery. "I don't want to go into surgery," he wrote before telling boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr., "call my phone why your phone off."
The third photo, in the meantime, captures Fiddy posing with stuffed animals. In the accompanying message, he complained to his collaborator DJ Drama, "Do not do a gangsta grillz this is all I get. Ain't this a b*tch. I give 15 tracks you give me this." As his response, Drama wrote back, "delivered in a chrysler 300!"
While Fiddy didn't disclose the reason behind his hospitalization, DJ Drama reportedly told XXLMag that the "Candy Shop" hitmaker was suffering from a "stomach virus". The 34-year-old Hip-Hop artist added, "First they wanted to keep it quiet, but he's not a quiet guy. He should be cool. It's nothing that serious. We still gonna do our promo run stuff [scheduled for Thursday, May 17]."
