The Game has inserted himself in 50 Cent‘s beef with his son Marquise Jackson, and he’s channeling his inner Suge Knight and Death Row Records.
The Compton native shared a pair of posts on his Instagram page where he poked fun at his former boss. In the first post, The Game shared a picture of 50 and Marquise from an old G-Unit clothing ad campaign with a caption ridiculing the whole situation.
“Like father like… wait, wrong picture. BRB,” The Game wrote.
In his next post, The Documentary rapper shared a picture of himself and his oldest child, Harlem Taylor, with a caption referencing Suge Knight’s infamous speech at the 1995 Source Awards where he criticized Diddy’s approach with artists on his Bad Boy Records label.
“Ahhhh more like it. I love you son. @harlemtaylorr,” The Game wrote. “If you don’t want your dad playing favorites, leaving you out in the cold, n giving you scraps every month, come to DEATHROW.”

The Game’s tweets come after 50 Cent ridiculed his son on his 26th birthday with an Instagram video responding to his complaints that 50’s $6,700-a-month child support payments weren’t enough to keep him afloat in New York City.
The almost minute-long clip finds 50 watching TV in the tub in a hotel in Germany when Marquise’s comments appear on the screen as “breaking news.” 50 turns the TV off and says: “This n-gga’s crazy. You’re 25 years old; why are you still talking about child support?”
Later in the video, 50 Cent answers a knock at his hotel room door and is greeted by Tony Yayo and Uncle Murda. “You know I don’t ask you for shit, man, but I was thinking,” Murda asks. “Could a n-gga get a little extra $6,700 a month?”
50 replies: “You n-ggas play too much” while laughing.
Marquise Jackson saw 50 Cent’s trolling and posted screenshots of the video on his own Instagram page, along with a message sarcastically thanking his estranged father for the birthday love.
“Hol on wait did my pops post me on my birthday today!” he wrote in the caption. “Wow he never shouted me out for my birthday this the 1st time.
“And I thought them dudes eat when u say eat u must not be telling them to eat pops because having old Nxggas begging at your door is SAD. I’m never going out like that. #ImYouDAD [crying face emoji].”
Marquise accompanied his post with a scene from 50 Cent’s Power series where Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.) tearfully confronts his father James a.k.a. Ghost (Omari Hardwick).
After Marquise Jackson’s original child support comments made headlines, he offered to pay his father $6,700 to spend quality time with him.
“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,” he wrote on Instagram while sharing a photo of him sat next to $100 bills spelling out the word “entitled.”
