During a recent interview, 50 Cent was asked about his relationship with his son, Marquise Jackson -- who he has fired shots at repeatedly via social media.
50 says that he tried for a long time to maintain his relationship with Marquise:
"I've already tried so long with him," he tells the newspaper. "That sense of entitlement is scariest when it's someone you love. He still manages to feel deprived when he's had everything. You love the person, he's your child, and he looks at you as if you're the enemy. And, after a while, you go: this is not a kid, it's a grown man we're talking about."
Marquise is just 23.
At one point, 50 went as far as to state that he would prefer to take Tekashi 6ix9ine as his son than Marquise. He even once tweeted an image of Marquise with the son of one of the men who allegedly plotted to shoot him The post was captioned: "If both these little n*ggas got hit by a bus, I wouldn't have a bad day."
