Marquis Jackson, 50 Cent's oldest son claims $6,700 monthly is not enough money to live in New York. The average going rent in New York City is $2,100 for a one-bedroom. The cost of living is 26% higher than the state average. Marquis took to instagram to make his point known and to grab his dad's attention.
“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,” he wrote in a plea to Instagram. “Red Yellow Green whatever color he like.”
The mother of Marquis and 50 Cent seemingly did not have the best relationship. 50 Cent was paying child support of $6,700 a month. The child support payments ended in 2017. Marquis is now 25 years old. In true 50 Cent fashion, he celebrated being finished with child support payments on instagram. He pointed out the fact that Marquis's mother may have felt "entitled".
In an interview 50 called the it a " sad situation" and “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.”-HipHop DX
