G-Unit leader 50 Cent has once again clarified recent Twitter remarks which left fans wondering about his mental well-being and said he is not on the verge of committing suicide.
Fif said Twitter's limit on how many words you can use per tweet contributed to the widespread misunderstanding.
"Nah, you only got a certain amount of characters. What I was trying to say is, what do you want your legacy to be? I want to be more than a guy who was able to create a few cool songs or was able to memorize the lines and have a decent performance in film projects," 50 explained. "I want to be someone who impacts a lot of people's lives in a positive way, so I'm a little more conscious of the things I'm doing in business to try and give back and make a difference. ... I do believe life is short and because humans are habit forming and we look forward to the future and don't want to think about [right now]. Tomorrow's not promised, so you've got to be conscious of today." (CNET)
Last week, Fif said his initial remarks were in reference to how fast life comes and goes.
"To be conscious that life is short is not suicidal. I'm good if I die tonight Iv taken care of the people who took care of me when I couldn't take care my self," Fif tweeted Tuesday (January 3). (50 Cent's Twitter)
A day prior, he sent viral chills after hinting at a foreseeable death.
"Ill be honest I don't think I'm gonna live much longer. That's why I started my street king movement. I want to mean more in other peoples lives."
"I mixed the big 10 because everything I do has to be the best I can make it cause other artist will create after hearing the ideas." (50 Cent's Twitter)
The rapper is currently putting together a new album slated to drop sometime this year.
"I want to come out at the top of the year, I want to be ready, but, you know, of course it's all on how everybody else puts together their actual marketing campaign and get it right," 50 said in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. "I don't have a timeline anymore. I'm doing the Dr. Dre. I'm doing what Eminem does. I've been on a shot clock my entire career. 'I've gotta come out during this period. I've got to come out during this period.' Like, every other year. My albums are so successful that it would take me a year to get done touring off of them. I may not necessarily tour off of this album. I might release it and decide I'm going to make the next one instead of actually going out and touring and let everybody live with that and do something different. Or they'll see me at spot dates."
