50 Cent is dying.

"I'll be honest," 50 Cent tweeted January 2, "I don't think I'm gonna live much longer. That's why I started my street king movement."

The 36-year-old rapper isn't terminally ill. He's just "conscious that life is short" and admittedly "not suicidal." Nevertheless, Curtis Jackson has been a real emo tweeter lately, writing 140-character messages that read more like a 14-year-old girl's diary than the social media account of a dude who's been shot nine times.

Check out some of Fiddy's saddest tweets.

5. Dear God, make me a bird...

Sure, 50 went on to say he'd like to shit on the world a few tweets later. But this tweet starts off like a middle schooler's poetry project.

4. I love my job, hate my company

Poor 50, no longer having fun making music. Whaaa!

3. Forget it!

Fine, I'll pretend this album never happened. Whaaa!

2. Sometimes I feel worthless

What a sensitive dude.

1. Will you remember me?
