Curtis Jackson III - known to most of us as 50 Cent or Fiddy - is clearly not even close to nearing the end of the years-long beef he has with his son.

The New York native's oldest child, Marquise Jackson (AKA 25 Cent), has faced some criticism online after claiming that the $6,700 his father paid his mom in child support each month was not enough.

Imitating his father's famous 'Broke' Instagram photo, Marquise posted an image of his own to the photo-sharing platform, with his cash spelling out the word 'Entitled.'

"Since y'all think $6,700 is sooo much money someone tell my pops I will pay him $6,700 for just 24hr of his time so we can do everything I ever wanted to do with him as a kid [...] Red Yellow Green whatever color he like," Marquise captioned his image.

This wasn't news for hip-hop and rap fans, who've been aware of the pair's ongoing beef for years. In fact, 50 Cent even spoke about their highly-publicized feud on Instagram Live to promote his book Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter in 2020.

"It's a sad situation. 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," the father-of-two said.

He revealed that, despite having paid close to $1.5 million in child support to his son, Marquise's mom raised him to develop a sense of entitlement, saying: "His mom developed an entitlement that cannot be met, filtering that energy through his actual personal interests [...] So, while being a privileged child, he feels deprived."

The 'In Da Club' rapper also nonchalantly stated on the live that he "used to" love his son though, evidently, did not feel the same anymore.

He added: "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?'"

Around the time of his Instagram Live, Fiddy compared his then-23-year-old son to 6ix9ine, a rainbow-haired rapper who has arguably become the most hated man in rap after cooperating with authorities to reveal his role in a violent drug-trafficking gang - the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. He is widely known in the rap community as a "snitch" and a "rat", two terms that he has since embraced.

"He better than Marquise though. I'll take him before I take my actual [son]," 50 Cent stated, Distractify detailed.

In response, the 47-year-old's son said: "Did he just say he would claim a rat? Aww nah, I want no part to that cheese. I don't know what y'all got going on over there. That's some other s**t. Stupid!"

Prior to their beef, 50 Cent had always spoken highly about being a father and being there for his son, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins. "When my son came into my life, my priorities changed, because I wanted to have the relationship with him that I didn't have with my father," he said, per Distractify.

After separating from Tompkins, 50 Cent and his ex-partner were embroiled in a bitter dispute over child support and the division of property. Consequently, 50 Cent revealed to Philly's Morning Show with Shamara and Laiya in 2014 that his son had sadly "embraced his mom's perspective on me," effectively souring their relationship.

As for Marquise's $6,700 offer, 50 Cent is yet to publicly respond.
