50 Cent Twitter, 50 Cent PepsiDespite being one of the wealthiest rappers in the history of the game, mega-rap mogul 50 Cent seems to think that he is headed for an early grave.

In a move that has many scratching their heads, 50 Cent took to Twitter, lamenting not only his own demise but also his disgust with the inner workings of the music business:

50cent 50cent
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 …

50cent 50cent
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.

50cent 50cent
Music was so much fun for me now the people and politics involved disgust me. I’m putting out a song tonight FT …

Over the last few months, 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, has publicly expressed dissatisfaction with his record label, Interscope, because his fifth album was allegedly mishandled.  On New Year’s Eve, the rapper/entrepreneur/marketing whiz ranted that he was fed up with Interscope executives and even directed a tweet at the company’s chairman, Jimmy Lovine, to discuss the record deal.

Recently, 50 Cent also claimed to have inked a deal with Pepsi that would distribute energy shot Street King nationally.  The businessman tweeted that every time a shot is purchased, a meal would be provided for a hungry child with a donation to the United Nations World Food Program.  The artist hoped to feed 1 billion children worldwide via the initiative.

But now, there are reports that 50 Cent actually misrepresented the distribution deal with the soft drink supplier. BEVNET, the beverage industry news company, is reporting that the rapper’s deal is actually with the Honickman Group, which distributes PepsiCo’s products in the New York City area.

NewsOne got an exclusive quote from a PepsiCo spokesperson, who asked not to be named:

I can definitely state, that 50 Cent does not have any deal whatsoever with regards to his new energy drink with either PepsiCo or Pepsi Beverages Company.  He might very well have a deal with Honickman but we cannot comment on that situation because we don’t have any knowledge with regards to it.  But as far as our company is concerned, the statements that are being reported are completely false!”

Is 50 just enjoying the shock factor of his tweets or is he losing his grip?  Time will tell.
