50 Cent has been in hospital this week, seemingly because of a stomach virus. Though the rapper’s recent collaborator DJ Drama told XXL that the condition wasn’t too serious.

And Fiddy himself, via Twitter, said that the hospital stint would not delay the release of his and Drama’s new EP, ‘The Lost Tape’, which is due out next week. Though whether it will impact on the rapper’s supposedly-near-completion fifth album, remains to be seen. Possibly to prove to bosses at label Interscope, who are presumably keen to have a completed album to work with, that he really was in hospital, Fiddy tweeted some pictures from his hospital bed, our favourite of which is this one.
