'In Da Club' rapper was hospitalised with stomach pains earlier this week

50 Cent has revealed that Eminem told him that he couldn’t die because he ate a bad burger.

The rapper was admitted to hospital earlier this week with stomach pains after he consumed the tainted snack but was able to avoid surgery and has since revealed on Twitter that he is “feeling better”, and should be released soon.

MTV reports that the hip-hop star received a phone call from his old cohort Eminem who told him that, after he survived being shot nine times in 2000, people wouldn’t be impressed if he was killed by some dodgy meat.

“I’m in a dead serious moment like, ‘Damn, I don’t believe this is happenin’ right now,'” he said, before recounting his conversation with Eminem:

He goes, ‘Yo Fif, you were shot nine times man if you die over a burger, this shit ain’t gonna go right. People ain’t gonna be feelin’ this.’

50 Cent is set to release his new album ‘Black Magic’ this summer. The rapper has promised that the LP, which will be his fifth studio LP and his first since 2009’s ‘Before I Self Destruct’, will “shake things up” when it arrives.

He previously slammed his label Interscope Records for failing to release the album, telling fans that they had “dropped the ball” and were “fucked up”. He also threatened to leak a single by fellow Interscope artist Dr Dre as a way of taking revenge.

Last month (April 22), he was sued by The Persuaders’ Robert Poindexter for allegedly sampling a song without permission.
