50 Cent aroused concern from fans in the Twittersphere yesterday when he revealed he had checked into a hospital. The G-Unit general didn't specify what was ailing him, but tweeted photos of himself reclining in a hospital bed with an IV in his arm.

Late Wednesday DJ Drama, who has been working with Fif on a new Gangsta Grillz mixtape, told XXL.com that the rapper and mogul had come down with a stomach virus.

“First they wanted to keep it quiet, but he’s not a quiet guy,” Drama said. “He should be cool. It’s nothing that serious. We still gonna do our promo run stuff [Thursday].” 

In a tweet earlier this morning, 50 said his condition had improved and he wouldn't be hospitalized much longer.

"I'm feeling better today I think I'm gonna get out of the hospital soon," he wrote.

The Lost Tape, Fif's upcoming Gangsta Grillz release, is still scheduled to drop next Tuesday (5/22). In a tweet Wednesday, 50 posted a humorous photo of himself frowning while surrounded by cuddly stuffed animals.

“Do not do a @djdrama gangsta grillz this is all I get," he joked. "Ain’t this a b*tch. I give 15 tracks you give me this.”
