Fif tweeted and twitpic'd about his experience, oh yeah -- he also took some time to remind fans to check for his mixtape, which drops next Tuesday.

Rapper 50 Cent is recovering in a New York hospital after being admitted Wednesday for an unspecified condition. The rapper, who had to cancel shows because of his hospitalization, kept mum about the reason why. He tweeted, "I'm in the hospital but my gangsta grillz LOST TAPE is done so it will be out on time." He referred to his EP "The Lost Tape" to be released next Tuesday.(GrantDaily)

The photo of 50 laid up in a hospital bed can be seen here, and as 50 recovers, his Money Team cohort Floyd Mayweather wished Fiddy well during his healin process.

Thursday, however, reported that 50 Cent had a blockage of his small intestine and had to undergo emergency surgery, where doctors have to cut off a portion of his intestines and reconnect them. Furthermore, friend Floyd Mayweather, Jr. also said Thursday on Atlanta's V103?s Ryan Cameron show, "Please keep 50 Cent in your prayers he is in the hospital and he is extremely sick...we will remain positive." The musician, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, posted Twitter photos of himself in a hospital gown, surrounded by stuffed toys. On Thursday, he tweeted "I'm feeling better today I think I'm gonna get out of the hospital soon."(GrantDaily)

Speaking of attention getters ... Kanye West and company not only have their G.O.O.D. Music compilation album coming this summer, but it seems Yeezy has a movie dropping that will highlight the his work and creative process.

The 2012 almanac said it was going to be a hot summer, but according to Mr. West, it's going to be a Cruel Summer. The G.O.O.D music compilation album is rumored to be titled Cruel Summer, and the making of the album is said to be the inspiration behind the film. Cruel Summer the movie will premiere at Cannes Film Festival in France and should be a direct reflection of Kanye's creative thoughts while making the album.(Global Grind)

The film, titled Cruel Summer may have a global setting: Yeezy was seen filming something out in the Middle East in early 2012. As far as what other rappers will appear in the film -- mums the word.

Earlier this year, Kanye and Kid Cudi were spotted shooting a film in the Middle East in the small country of Qatar. The set was exclusive and all crew members were mandated to sign non-disclosure forms before arriving onto set. Cruel Summer the movie will be premiere on May 23 in Cannes, France and will be presented at various show times on May 24-25. (Global Grind)

SOHH Watcha Think: Yeezy gained a bit of acclaim for his extended video/film Twisted Fantasy, will you be checking for Cruel Summer: The Movie?
