50 Cent has been speaking about his first baby's mother feeling entitled to his finances and not working a regular job on a daily basis. Marquise Jackson was interviewed by a podcaster saying they only received $6,700 in child support every month, from his father as a kid. Marquise spoke about not having a father in the picture, and his basic needs in being in the middle of a rocky relationship between his parents. But the interviewer offered pushback calling for Marquise to humble himself, citing that most families don't even make $80K per year.
"I should not want for anything." "I'm not talking about I want a Lambo, at the time I wanted at least socks. Basketball socks are twelve dollars. I should not want for anything right?" "Now, hold on?" the interviewer replied. "At what age is this?" "We ain't even gotta worry about the age," Marquise said. "It's a general question. If you're not gonna be there physically and emotionally, but you're traveling [because] you gotta get your money, I should not want for anything right?"
"Okay, was [50 Cent] paying child support?" Asked the interviewer." Child support, I believe, came around when I was 12 or 13, or maybe 11," responded Marquise. "Ten years of child support...It was like a million dollars I think or what [50 Cent] claims was a million dollars. It's $6,700 a month."And that can't buy socks?" Said the host.
"You're comparing [my situation] to yourself, don't do that. You're talking about somebody who [had] problems with everybody [so] you can't just live in any neighborhood. 81K is not a lot of money! [He] had beef with everybody in the streets [so we] can't just live anywhere." Marquise's mom also being responsible for some of the financial responsibilities of his upbringing before breaking down the intricacies of child support legislation. To that, Marquise argued that his mother, Shaniqua Tompkins, worked as a real estate agent while 50 Cent often complained about having to shell out money for child support.
