Marquise Jackson, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s oldest son, recently appeared on Instagram Live to talk about the amount of child support he receives from his father each month. The spitting-image of Fif said that the $6700 per month he received wasn’t quite enough to support the lifestyle he believed himself entitled to because of his relationship to the Queens rapper, particularly while residing in NYC.
“$6700 a month in the state of New York City, you do the math,” said Marquise to entrepreneur and former rapper, Choke No Joke.
“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, $81,000 is not a substantial amount of money. You can’t just live anywhere. You talking about you got beef with everybody in the industry, you can’t just live anywhere.”
The remainder, which 50 pays to Marquise’s mother, Shaniqua Tompkins, would make up the whole $13,400 that Marquise should have been receiving, according to Choke. Choke then recommended that in addition to caring for him, Tompkins also needed to work. Marquise, though, was fixated on the meager sum of money his father had been giving him.
Marquise questioned Choke, “If I told you right now you gotta start your life over with $6700 a month and rebuild your life, could you do it?” Choke immediately responded that he could, just like many common people do every day.
