50's Oldest Son Is Tired Of People Telling Him To Speak To His Father

"Can you guys please stay out of my DMs and comments asking me to reach out?"

The relationship between 50 Cent and his oldest son Marquise is a turbulent one. While the Power executive and actor continually dotes upon his youngest boy Sire, Fif and Marquise unfortunately aren't close. On Saturday (Feb. 4) Marquise--who bears an uncanny resemblance to Fif--took to social media to beg the public to stop advising him on how he should interact with his dad, and also reveal communication between them has come to a dead end.

"Can you guys please stay out of my DMs and comments asking me to reach out?" the 19-year-old questioned. "Last time I checked I was blocked, so take that elsewhere. Please and thank you."

50 Cent and Maquise's tethered relationship is the result of his feud with Marquise's mother Shaniqua Tompkins. However, Fif has also expressed a mixed bag of emotions when it comes to Marquise. The Get Rich or Die Tryin' artist has attempted several times in the past to communicate with him, and even defended his son's efforts in trying to make a name for himself.

“You will be 20 in a few months I’m happy to see you in good spirits. You be strong out there on your own boy. You are a grown man now,” he captioned under a picture of Marquise back in February 2016.

But just as quickly as things were seemingly looking up, a few months later, 50 Cent publicly counted down the days until he'll no longer have to pay child support.

"Man, real life is going to start sooner than you think," 50 Cent wrote under a calendar which ends on Marquises's Oct. 13th birthday. "Sad part is, I wish you well. #ShaniquaGetAJob"

Marquise learned of his father's comments and responded in kind. "Don't worry, I'll make you proud. Just don't forget to tell me Happy Birthday that day because you missed a few."

G Herbo’s Ex Ari Details Alleged Abuse: “I Have A Black Eye”

G Herbo was arrested on Wednesday (April 17) for battery against his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child. Now, Ariana Fletcher is speaking up about the alleged incident that led to his arrest.

Fletcher shared her story on Instagram on Thursday (April 18). “He kicked my door down to get in my house because I wouldn’t let him in, beat the f**k out of me front of my son,” she alleged. “Then he took my son outside to his friends and had them drive off with my son, hid all my knives in my house, broke my phone and locked me inside and beat the f**k out of me again (choked me, punched me in my face and all over my body, dragged me outside on the concrete by my hair after his friends drove off with my son, took me in the house and continued beating me).”

She also stated that she has physical signs of the abuse. “He wrecked my whole house, broke all type of sh*t,” she continued. “I have a black eye, my body scraped up from being dragged outside, bruises and cuts all over my body… Please do’t speak on no old “relationship play fights’ cause this ain’t that’.”

It is unclear what triggered the alleged incident. Herbo is still in jail. His bond has been set at $2,000. Read Ari’s full statement below.

'It's About Time': Cypress Hill Receives Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Cypress Hill doesn't always get the credit they deserve for their impact on hip-hop history, but they were honored forever this week with a revered star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

With a career of 30 years, the legacy of the four-man group of B-Real, DJ Muggs, Sen Dog, and Eric Bobo (along with former member Mellow Man Ace) includes six platinum albums and 90s zeitgeist songs like "How I Could Just Kill A Man," "Insane In The Brain," and "Hand On The Pump." They released their self-titled debut in 1991 and the chart-topping follow-up Black Sunday two years later,  and have continued creating ever since, releasing their ninth and latest album Elephants On Acid in September 2018. Cypress Hill are considered West Coast rap legends, and the first Latino rap group to have multiple gold and platinum records. Anchored by Muggs' gloomy, gritty production and B-Real's nasal, charismatic rhymes, Cypress Hill is as much a part of rap history as anyone.

The group's ceremony included speeches from Latino comedian George Lopez and fellow West Coast rap legend Xzibit, who said 'it's about time' before detailing the group's illustrious career.

Xzibit pointed out Cypress Hill not only brought Latino representation in an industry that largely lacked it, but that they were staunch marijuana advocates way before today's growing legalization.

"The Grammy-nominated group showed us stoned is indeed the way of the walk. Long before the days of legal dispensaries and medical marijuana, Cypress Hill were advocates of that sticky icky icky oooh wee!" Xzibit shared. "...Cypress Hill are pioneers in their own right. Their accomplishments and accolades reach deep in the roots and history books of hip-hop, and today is another chapter in that saga. Yo B-Real, Sen Dog, Muggs, Bobo: you are our Rolling Stones, Ungrateful Dead, you are the West Coast Public Enemy."

Lopez insisted that out of all the 2,600 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, "there are none more important than the one we're about to unveil for Cypress Hill. There's a lot of actors, there's a lot of comedians, there's a lot of entertainers who are on this (Walk of Fame). But there's only one cypress hill, the first latino hip-hop group. But to everyone who lives the American dream, not the last latino hip-hop group to ever be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."

Michelle Obama On Beyonce's 'Homecoming' Film: "Girl, You Have Done It Again"

Beyoncé's Coachella documentary, Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé on Netflix has been met with praise from every corner of the earth since its April 17 release. The compliments are still rolling in and the most recent one that Queen Bey has received is from none other than former First Lady Michelle Obama.

"Girl, you have done it again," Obama said in a short clip. "Constantly raising the bar for us all, and doing it flawlessly. I'd say I'm surprised, but I know who you are. I've seen it up close and personal. Girl, you make me so proud and I love you."

Obama and Beyoncé's friendship is one that the two have discussed publicly before and one that is admired by their respective supporters. Just a day after the release of Homecoming, Mrs. Carter penned a letter dedicated to Obama for her TIME 100 profile and the superstar only had kind words to say.

"I'm honored to know such a brilliant black woman who's spoken about the sacrifice it takes to balance her passions while remaining a supportive partner and mother, and now a best-selling author with Becoming," Beyonce wrote. "She has continued to open herself up, even if it meant being criticized. She has continued to be a portrait of grace."

Make sure to watch Queen Bey's documentary on Netflix, where she made history by being the first black female headliner of Coachella.
