50 Cent has responded to his estranged son Marquise Jackson after he offered him money to spend some quality time with him.
Last week, 50’s eldest son — with whom the rapper has a strained relationship — sarcastically offered to pay his father $6,700 to share a father-son day with him.
It came after the 25-year-old raised eyebrows by claiming the $6,700-a-month child support 50 Cent forked out was not enough to sustain his New York City lifestyle.
“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,” Marquise wrote on Instagram under a photo of him sat next to a series of $100 bills spelling out the word “entitled.”
Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the son of Detroit drug lord Big Meech and the star of 50 Cent’s BMF series, left a comment on Marquise’s post that read: “You Stupid @199viq I’ll Take 5 Over There Myself I Might Even Play Some Games With You.”
On Tuesday (October 11), 50 Cent finally addressed the saga himself by sharing Lil Meech’s response on his own Instagram page.
Ever the businessman, 50 also seized the opportunity to plug his growing TV empire by sharing the trailer for his upcoming BMF (Black Mafia Family) docuseries, which airs on STARZ later this month.
“[grinning squinting face] @lilmeechbmf & @michaelraineyjr know what’s up stupid!” the G-Unit boss wrote in his caption. “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, discussed his father’s child support payments during an Instagram Live conversation with entrepreneur and former rapper Choke No Joke.
“$6,700 a month in the state of New York City. You do the math,” he said. “You’re talking about a Forbes lister, you’re talking about someone that has problems with everybody — you can’t just live in any neighborhood. $81K [per year] is not a substantial amount of money!”
50 Cent and Marquise Jackson have been at odds for years. During an Instagram Live interview with Van Lathan in 2020, 50 opened up about their strained relationship and suggested their feud was inherited from Marquise’s mother.
“It is sad, it’s a sad situation,” he said. “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.”
50 Cent added: “I didn’t think that success would cost me my firstborn, but it’s the situation it is. My grandfather used to say, ‘If it rattles like a snake and slithers like a snake, is it a snake or do you need to be bit?’ What he keeps saying is, every time you see the boy he show up with somebody you got a problem with. What does that tell you?”
