50 Cent has been busy easing his way back into rapper mode in recent weeks on his Final Lap Tour, but that hasn’t stopped him from taking a moment to appreciate the important things in life.
On Monday (August 14), the G-Unit mogul shared a photo on Instagram of his son Sire Jackson and marveled at how quickly he’s growing up before his very eyes.
The picture showed the 10-year-old rocking dreadlocks and white Air Jordan IIIs while stood next to an older boy.
“Look how big my baby got, SIRE this is crazy he eating that filipino cuisine,” 50 joked in the caption.
He wasn’t the only who couldn’t believe how fast Sire is maturing as Busta Rhymes, Tony Yayo and TDE honcho Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith all commented on Fif’s post.
“That is NOT that lil baby!!” one follower wrote in astonishment. “Omg he grew up too fast! So cute.”

Sire Jackson was born in September 2012 to 50 Cent and Daphne Joy, a Filipino and Puerto Rican model and actress who the Queens, New York rapper briefly dated in the early 2010s.
Despite his strained relationship with his eldest son, Marquise Jackson, 50 has long been a doting father to Sire. In 2017, he named his Sire Spirits company after his son and gave him his debut movie role in last year’s horror flick Skill House, which he starred in and co-produced.
The same can’t be said for 50’s relationship with Joy, however, as the former couple have clashed numerous times over the years.
In 2013, the “In Da Club” hitmaker was charged with domestic violence and misdemeanor vandalism for allegedly assaulting his baby mother and causing more than $7,000 worth of damage to her home during a disagreement.
50 initially denied the allegations, before pleading guilty to the charges. He was sentenced to three years probation and 30 days community service, while also agreeing to pay Joy more than $7,000 in restitution.
Tensions flared again last year when 50 Cent trolled Daphne Joy over her rumored fling with Diddy. Fif shared a photo on Instagram of him and Sire wearing sunglasses and looking into the camera, accompanied by the caption: “Oh shit, that’s your mommy over there with Puffy. LOL. Remember what i told you the other day, these b!tche’s be crazy. SMH.”
Joy saw the post and replied in the comments section: “Please stop doing this to me. I never bother you and I’m an outstanding mother to our son. Can we please just focus on that. Please.”
These days, 50 Cent appears to be happily boo’d up with his current girlfriend, fitness entrepreneur Jamira “Cuban Link” Haines — although the reality of dating a multi-millionaire Hip Hop megastar isn’t all roses.
