A few weeks after 50 Cent revealed that he would pick fellow controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine over his own son Marquise Jackson, he has now opened up that his son is the fee he paid for success.

During an Instagram live chat with Van Lathan on XXL‘s IG, 50 who is not on good terms with his eldest son said he never thought success would cost him his son.

“It is sad, it’s a sad situation. 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.”

The rapper who recently released a new book titled “Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter” said all love is lost between him and his son.

“I didn’t think that success would cost me my firstborn but it’s the situation it is. Like, 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?”

“Nah, I ain’t heard from 6ix9ine. He’s his mother’s child now. He told on everybody,” 50 said during an IG Live stream. “He better than Marquise, though. I’ll take him before I take my actual biological son. Fuck that n***a.”
