In addition to announcing a deal with Pepsi to distribute his Street King energy shot and further his mission to help children in need, 50 Cent has not only lashed out at his own record label and declared a refusal to promote his own music, but he also predicts that his own life will be ending soon.
Fif plans to bring his energy shot to new markets with the new Pepsi deal, which comes shortly after he launched the shot in September 2011, with the intention to supply a child in need with a meal for every shot purchased.
“I did a deal with Pepsi to distribute streetking its gonna be every were buy a bottle feed some one in need,” he tweeted.
50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, has dealt with soft drink companies before, having sold his Glaceau Vitamin Water stake to Coca-Cola in 2007. He reportedly made off with a whopping $400 million from the deal.
50 then made a few ominous comments on Twitter within the past several hours, but certainly didn't seem to be joking when he said he doesn't plan to do the traditional hype rounds for his new music.
"I have lost all the faith in the team I'm on. I having nothing left to say I will not be promoting my music," said the rapper, whose battles with Universal have seen Jackson publicly denouncing his label and even threatening to leak a track from Dr. Dre's Detox album.
His frustrations seem quite valid, being that Universal, his own label, pulled 50's new video for "They Burn Me" within hours of its debut – for copyright infringement.
"I'm going to deliver this album then," he explained, 140-character style. "I have a film I wrote to focus on I'm not upset I'm just convinced this is not how I want to remembered."
Wait, remembered? Where's he going? "Ill be honest I don't think I'm gonna live much longer," Curtis tweeted. "That's why I started my street king movement. I want to mean more in other peoples lives."
Responding to the barrage of concern and criticism his Twitter followers reacted with, 50 leaned philosophical: "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."
