G-Unit leader 50 Cent has clarified remarks he made yesterday (Janaury 2) suggesting he would meet his demise in the near future and said they do not represent suicidal thoughts.
Once again resorting to Twitter, Fif said his 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)
Yesterday, 50 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)
Last year, Cash Money Records' Bow Wow credited his newborn daughter for eliminating a past thought of suicide.
"Let me start off by saying i love my fans. With out yall i wudda been left the game. For the past 3 years i been batteling life. Even thought about taking my own. I felt like as a kid i did everything and saw everything too fast which spoiled my adult years. I felt as if i had no purpose to live(Thinking selfishly) until god gave me the illest gift of my life. No lambo, no blk card nuffn ammounts to my lil girl. I waited so long to tell yall the truth because i was nervous on how yall would look at me. Yall know everyone makes a big deal out of everything i do. I wanted to be 1st n let yall know the real. My lil girl is getting BIG fast. i love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder.Even made me treat my mother better, its like it made me into a man over night. Never been a fan of posting pix of my daughter. Reason is because i want my boo boo to have everything i didnt. Want her to be able to cheerlead with her lil friends with out some a**hole sticking his camera all in my lil girl face." (Bow Wow Today)
As things currently stand, 50 is working on a new solo album.
"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."
