50 Cent’s first born son, Marquise Jackson, is planning to carve out a lane of his own within the music industry. He recently dropped a track, “Different,” to which a few listeners believe to be a slight aimed at his father. Some concluded that his relationship with the G-Unit boss is far from reaching a point of resolve, and in an interview with Okayplayer, Marquise is still unclear on how the strain can be remedied.
On the topic of the song’s subject matter, the 19-year-old stressed that the phrase “diss track” does not coincide with the lyrics. “It’s not a diss track. If you listen to the song, I clearly state, ‘I lost my pops, but he’s still alive!’ He is present as in he is living, but he isn’t present in my day-to-day life!” he said. “That is something that my life consists of [and] that’s not a diss. It’s a fact!”
When asked if he thinks a positive outcome is on the horizon for him and Fifty, he simply responds with, “I’m not sure.” The rift was made public when Fifty and his son’s mother, Shaniqua Tompkins, engaged in a heated war of words. In 2016, the “21 Questions” rapper alleged that Tompkins will be the subject of Marquise’s hatred “when he realize what she did to him. He has to make it on his own like I did. SMH GOOD LUCK.”
Despite the public reveals, Marquise plans to place all his energy on the music, stating that “Different” begins the rollout process for his mixtape, Escape.
