50 Cent responds to his son's online taunting

Earlier this week, the firstborn child of rapper 50 Cent, Marquise Jackson, was taunting his estranged father on social media by facetiously offering the rapper $6,700 to spend time with him. The offer was the result of an Instagram rant in which Marquise told former rapper Choke No Joke that the $6,700 a month he received from his father was an inadequate sum of money.

Taking to Instagram just days ago, Marquise told his followers: “Since y’all think $6,700 is sooo much money, someone tell my pops I will pay him $6,700 for just 24hr of his time so we can do everything I ever wanted to do with him as a kid.” 

However, one of 50 Cent’s close friends took up for the rapper. Son of Detroit drug lord Big Meech, Demetrius ‘Lil Meech’ Flenory Jr, who also stars in 50 Cent’s BMF docuseries, commented on Marquise’s facetious post, writing, “You Stupid @199viq I’ll Take 5 Over There Myself I Might Even Play Some Games With You.”

On October 11th, 2022, after his estranged son’s string of antics, 50 Cent finally decided to respond and did so by sharing Lil Meech’s response on his own Instagram page, followed by the trailer for BMF (Black Mafia Family), which will air on STARZ later this year. The trailer’s caption read, “@lilmeechbmf and @michaelraineyjr know what’s up stupid! BLOWING MONEY FAST 10.23.22 it’s lit!! @bransoncognac @lecheminduroi GLG?GreenLightGang.”

Marquise Jackson, whose mother is 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins, spoke to Choke No Joke about his child support from 50 Cent earlier this month, exclaiming, “$6,700 a month in the state of New York City. You do the math”.

He also highlighted his father’s wealth, insinuating that what he receives is a tiny percentage of his father’s earnings as he proclaimed: “You’re talking about a Forbes lister, you’re talking about someone that has problems with everybody, you can’t just live in any neighbourhood, $81,000 is not a substantial amount of money. You can’t just live anywhere. You talking about you got beef with everybody in the industry, you can’t just live anywhere.” 

During an Instagram Live interview with Van Lathan in 2020, 50 Cent spoke on his strained relationship with his son and claimed that his son taunts him on behalf of his mother, Tompkins. During the lockdown interview, 50 explained the situation in-depth and admitted it saddened him.

The rapper detailed: “It is sad, it’s a sad situation. When you pray for success, you don’t necessarily pray for the things that come with it. It’s no such thing as success without jealousy, without envy or entitlement … His mom developed an entitlement that cannot be met, filtering that energy through his actual personal interests.”
