You'd think that being shot nine times and surviving might give a person delusions of immortality, but that's not the case for 50 Cent. In fact, the 36 year old believes just the opposite -- he thinks he's going to die soon.

On Monday, the rapper started off the new year on a disturbing note when he posted on Twitter, "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."

Concerned fans must have sent 50 tweets asking if he felt suicidal, because several hours later he felt compelled to elaborate. He added, "To be conscious that life is short is not suicidal. I'm good if I die tonight Iv [sic] taken care of the people who took care of me when I couldn't take care my self [sic]."

Part of 50 Cent's disillusionment apparently stems from the fact that he feels his record label, Interscope, no longer fully supports him. Just before his post about dying, he tweeted, "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. I'm going to deliver this album then. I have a film I wrote to focus on I'm not upset I'm just convinced this is not how I want to [be] remembered."

50 Cent's fifth studio album is planned for release sometime this year, after several delays. His last record was 2009's 'Before I Self Destruct,' which failed to produce a major hit.
