About Marquise Jackson and 50 Cent’s feud
There wasn’t always bad blood between Marquise and his father, 50 Cent. When Marquise was born, 50 Cent revealed in an interview that his life changed for the better.
When my son came into my life, my priorities changed, because I wanted to have a relationship with him that I didn’t have with my father.
The 47-year-old rapper even has a tattoo of Marquise on his right bicep. Things went south when 50 Cent and his baby mama Shaniqua Tompkins started fighting publicly over his $4 million home in Long Island. In another interview, 50 Cent claimed his son embraced his mom’s perspective of him and that was what ruined their relationship.
Reacting to the statement, Shaniqua Tompkins said:
You don’t have a relationship with my child because you choose not to, you want to bully him, threaten him, and disparagingly talk about his mother. She continued; I don’t try to mentally abuse my son like you do! I don’t talk about you and your actions speak for themselves. Who threatens to shoot their son on Instagram?
In 2015, Marquise Jackson called out his father in a post writing:
I ain’t never switched up on nobody, either you pushed me away, left me hanging, or proved to me how un-loyal you are!!! That’s a word to mummy.
On the other hand, 50 Cent wasted no time replying:
Word to Mummy Hun!!!? Don’t play with me boy. Kanan.
Recently, 50 Cent took to Instagram to slam Marquise after the 25-year-old stated in an Instagram live chat that the $6,700 50 Cent paid his mother monthly for child support was insufficient considering New York City’s high cost of living.
Marquise added that he is willing to pay his father $6, 700 for a day of his time with him as his father.
He said in a statement:
Since y’all think $6,700 is so much money, someone tells 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. Red, yellow, green, whatever color he likes.
50 Cent responded to the post by sharing a video clip of him in the series “Power”. The video shows 50 Cent as Kanan Stark shooting the drug dealer’s son, Shawn, dead in cold blood.
He captioned the clip: “No captions needed”.
