50 Cent remains one of the most influential rappers in the history of the Hip-Hop world. 50 Cent made his mark in various mediums such as games, movies, books and more. 50 Cent supports DaBaby, and the rap legend is also known to defend those he believes in. He also previously reacted to Eminem showing him some love on the new Nas album. He was also very scared of his mother as a child.
50 Cent had a difficult time growing up as a child, as he lost his mother at a very young age. His mother died in a fire when the rapper was only just eight years old. Fans will get to see such scenes in Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
While speaking to Page Six, 50 Cent revealed that he was often bullied while growing up but admitted that he was far more scared of his mother.
“[There’s a scene] from the first episode where Kanan gets roughed up and he goes back in the house and [his mother put the toys in the socks]. That really happened,” said Fif. “Like, that was from my life… There’s a point where, things that you are afraid of, that I got bumped around a lot in the park but I was more afraid of my mom than the people I got bumped around by because I could not escape her. Her being a single mom at that point, she was everything.”
“She was my mom and my dad and she was tough so I didn’t know when it was okay to be emotional and when it wasn’. She would look and say, ‘Get up from off the floor. What you don’t over there cryin’ and actin’ like a little girl.’ She’d get mad and you go, ‘Oh, sh*t, it’s not okay to be hurt this time.'”
“So, she’s balancing when she should be soft and when she should be firm with you.”
50 Cent will forever remember how much his mother helped to shape him, even if it wasn’t for a long time. A mother’s teaching is not someone a child can simply ever forget, after all.
