When you google 50 Cent son beef, a slew of headline appear, “50 Cent threatens to shoot his son on Instagram” “50 Cent disowns his son in alleged brutal text exchange” “Rapper Calls 16-Year-Old Son ‘F*Cking Crazy, Stupid, Little A**Hole” and the list continues. I am disheartened by the headlines that expose such a strained relationship between a son, his mother, and his father. I am a big fan of Curtis Jackson, fitty, 50 Cent, the Queens born native who has what seems like a nothing to something success story, but it confused me why Iyanla or Dr.Phil or damn it even Oprah hasn’t stepped in to help mend this messy ass situation that seems to have been going on for years now. I love a good success story of a person that has made it from the bottom and now they are on top… but to what expense? 50 has a hit series on TV, he’s stared in reputable movies and he has a very successful rap career, but to me the one job that you should be doing the best at… you seem to be doing the worse? I hate that as an adult he is publicly going back and forth with his son and his son’s mother. It’s deplorable and disgusts me as a woman and mother to see. In my head (of course none of my opinion really matters, because its only that… my opinion), the perception I have of Curtis James Jackson III is this cocky, New York, street dude who curses you out and spits on you if he doesnt successfully get your number as hes standing at the bodega with his boys and you are walking past… and he also seems like he has the personality of that sweet guy that would buy you door knocker earrings with your names sprawled out in diamonds with a matching Chanel bag with a note inside that said, “If I got locked up and sentenced to a quarter century, could I count on you to be there supporting me mentally?” My kinda guy lol (Ready to die was MY SH%T! (50 Cent debut album))”, but he’s really tripping and I am at lost to why hes handling this situation with his son so poorly. I can’t imagine his sons hurt seeing how he boastfully flaunts his new son all over his Instagram page and having him grow up with his dad being this active “good dad” role… how hurtful for his eldest son, Marquise Jackson. Of course I don’t know the back story and of course I have no idea what role Marquise’s mom plays in 50 not having a relationship with his son, but his son is now a young adult, if Curtis wants to foster and build a relationship with this young man, he can. It just really bothers me to see this get played out publicly and having him “diss” his son repeatedly. I’m sure his son’s “I don’t care” attitude just shows hurt and embarrassment he really is. It’s sick… and I just worry about what kind of man his son and father his son will become. This is a young man that wasnt loved by his father, one that was publicly ridiculed by the one person I am sure hes always wanted approval from, one that gave him the face he wears. I’m not sure what I want from 50. This is the person that allegedly, the news or blogs (same difference), reported that he burned down his house that his baby mother lived in because she wouldn’t willingly leave the home, why do I expect more from this man… I still do though. The situation is sad and I just hope that we as parents start to look at some of the damage we are doing to our kids. We are adults and need to look at the bigger picture and put our pride and ego’s aside. Looks like the son, his mother and 50 have so much built up animosity from this strained long going tumultuous fight… but who will be the bigger person to repair this relationship? Anyone? 50 continues to blame his son’s mother for this disconnect with his son and then tells media outlets he wants to focus on his relationship with his second son, since he has none with his first. Is it me, or does this seem asinine and destructive either way… you’re still not getting into heaven bruh, its still wrong; just sharing my thoughts. What do you think about this rocky, father-son relationship? Check out more at http://www.twobrooklynbabes.com 2016 im trying to write more. back to basics.
