New York rap legend 50 Cent and his son have always had a tenuous relationship, and now, their issues are starting to play out in public as 50 Cent’s son calls out the rapper with regard to his child support payments.
50 Cent’s relationship with his firstborn child Marquise Jackson has always been somewhat of a mystery, with fans not really knowing why it is so terrible. However, one thing we can be sure of is that it is no better in 2022 than it was a decade ago.
Marquise, who is 25 years old, recently took to Instagram to express his frustrations concerning the amount he received in child support growing up as the rapper’s firstborn child. According to the claims of Marquise, the $6,700 a month he received from his father was an inadequate sum of money, especially considering he lived in the expensive city of New York.
During the Instagram live, he exclaimed: “$6700 a month in the state of New York City, you do the math”. He then proceeded to highlight 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.”
Getting into an argument with former rapper Choke No Joke, Marquise challenged him asking, “If I told you right now you gotta start your life over right now with $6700 a month and rebuild your life [could] you do it?” To which the rapper responded, yes, explaining that, unlike Marquise, he was not born into wealth and therefore knows how to cope on small budgets.
It was all very messy, but one thing that was a consensus among people who witnessed it is that Marquise Jackson seemed like a highly ungrateful individual who gets more in child support per month than some people earn.
