The bad blood between the shared of New York hip-hop, television and business mogul 50 Cent and his estranged 21-year-old son Marquise Jackson is, sadly, still running thick in 2018.
Aside from trading online, on-screen and on-wax shots at one another over the past couple of years, the men have seemingly been able to keep their tensions at bay. That is, up until a recent photo of Marquise circulating on social media. Upon first look, the photo appears innocent enough. But after the internet dug up information on the young man Marquise is posted up with in the flick, it now appears to be something much deeper and a reminder of someone from a deadly place in Fif’s dark past.
For those unaware, McGriff was named by authorities as the ring leader who ordered Fif’s murder in 2000, resulting in nine gunshots to his hand, arm, hip, both legs, chest and face. The hit reportedly stemmed from McGriff’s discontent with Fif’s statements about him in his “Ghetto Qu’ran” track released that same year. McGriff was also named in connection with the murder of RUN-DMC’s Jam Master Jay and Mobb Deep affiliate E-Moneybags.
So when Fif pulled up on the photo of McGriff’s son standing beside his own, his sentiments were clear. “If both these little n**gas got hit by a bus, I wouldn’t have a bad day,” he wrote.
