50 Cent, who recently released a new book titled Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter, joined Van Lathan on XXL's IG for an interview on Tuesday night.
During the chat, 50 was asked about his strained relationship with his son, Marquise Jackson. "It is sad, it's a sad situation," 50 said when asked about Marquise. "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." 50 went on to say that he would pay over $1 million in child support and that Marquise "had everything I didn't have."
When Lathan asked if he loved his son, 50 said that he "used to."
50 continued, "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?'"

Just last month, 50 said he'd pick Brooklyn rapper 6ix9ine over his own son.
"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." Marquise caught wind of the comment and slammed 50 for "claiming a rat."
