50 Cent Brushes Off Son's $10K Apple Cash Request

Though he's only 10 years old, apparently Sire Jackson wants to secure his bag early.

50 Cent just took to Instagram to slightly ridicule his 10-year-old son Sire's alleged request for $10K via Apple Cash. Moreover, he posted a screenshot of the request with no further details, instead choosing to elaborate in his post's caption. "I just got this from my son SIRE, [eyes emoji],” Fif wrote. “He is 10 years old I hope this is a joke." Apparently, all the hard work that the music and business mogul put in for his cash isn't easily forgotten, and he's not one to give it indiscriminately- even to his children. Still, many wondered how the young Jackson family member could've schemed this out to begin with. Kids and tech are just growing too fast these days.

Regardless, Sire's hustling has probably transcended even 50 Cent's expectations, as he apparently passed down his money-making mindset to him. According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, the young buck (whom Curtis shares with his ex Daphne Joy) got $700,000 for his first modeling contract. What's more is that the reportedly lucrative move came when Sire was just two years old. It's always quite impressive, however jarring, to see kids adapt to our hyper-capital-obsessed world with ease.

50 Cent Hopes His Son's Apple Cash Request Is A Joke

Not only that, but Sire seems to be following 50 Cent's footsteps into the wider entertainment industry. Moreover, the G-Unit mogul recently celebrated his son being cast in the upcoming horror film Skill House in August of 2022. Of course, 50 took to Instagram to show off Sire talking to the flick's director, Josh Stolberg. From what his caption indicates, he'll star in an undisclosed role that Stolberg is expecting hard work from, as he's seen listening intently to the director.

Once again in September of that year, the Queens legend expressed pride in his ten-year-old son when he received a Student of the Month award in language arts from his school. "My boy getting student of the month," the rapper captioned his celebratory post. With all those achievements in mind, maybe Sire's just looking for some extra cash to invest or put into his career. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest on Sire Jackson and 50 Cent.
