50 Cent was hospitalized on May 16 for a stomach virus according to AllHipHop.com. The G-Unit rapper published several photos of himself dressed in a gown, lying in a hospital bed surrounded by stuffed animals. DJ Drama confirmed the news, telling XXL magazine “First they wanted to keep it quiet, but he’s not a quiet guy…He should be cool. It’s nothing that serious.”
The same day Fif promoted his collaborative mixtape with DJ Drama, writing on Twitter “I’m in the hospital but my gangsta grillz LOST TAPE is done so it will be out on time…Do not do a @djdrama gangsta grillz this is all I get. Ain’t this a b*tch. I give 15 tracks you give me this.”
On Thursday, May 17 the Queens emcee tweeted “I’m feeling better today I think I’m gonna get out of the hospital soon.”
Before Fifty was hospitalized he released a video of himself helping out Feeding America and City Harvest at a recent event which fed more than 250 meals to New York City’s homeless population.
