New York, N.Y., United States (4E) – 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.
Thursday, however, Mediatakeout.com 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.”
