50s boy Floyd Mayweather Jr. also asked fans to keep him in their prayers. “Please keep 50 Cent in your prayers he is in the hospital and he is extremely sick…we will remain positive,” Mayweather said yesterday on Atlanta’s V103′s Ryan Cameron show.
DJ Drama spoke to XXL magazine about his friend last night, saying that 50 Cent is expected to be back on his feet soon.
“First they wanted to keep it quiet, but he’s not a quiet guy,” DJ Drama explained. “He should be cool. It’s nothing that serious.”
50 Cent also sought to assure fans that his much-hyped release would still be out on May 22, despite his health issues.
