G-Unit leader 50 Cent‘s son, Marquise Jackson, recently talked about basketball footage of himself sprouting online and why it could potentially land him a college scholarship.
According to Jackson, he hopes his basketball skills can separate his automatic connection to his world famous dad.
“I mean, it’s a blessing man. I pray for stuff like this, I’m just happy I’m able to play ball and do something I love. … A lot of people, they come up to me and say it’s ‘cause of my Dad or they think I’m not good but at the end of the day I show I could play. … There’s a lot of schools I like, a lot of big-time schools I like. I just really look forward to receiving an athletic scholarship wherever I go.” (TMZ)

Marquise’s basketball footage sprouted online earlier this month.
50 Cent’s son Marquise Jackson is a 5’9 senior point guard at St John’s Military Academy. This weekend Marquise showed that he could knock down threes and run a team. Last season he averaged 19.1 points per game, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists on his way to 1st Team All Region at King’s Ridge Christian Academy in Alpharetta, Georgia. (Raise Da Bar)
A photo of Marquise and boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. hanging out together surfaced back in September.
Marquise posted a photo to his Facebook page …. hangin’ with FLOYD MAYWEATHER!! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know 50 and Floyd hate each other’s guts … so for Marquise to post this pic — clearly, he’s trying to get under his father’s skin. 50 and Marquise have a complicated relationship — 50 hates Marquise’s mother … and hasn’t really been a part of Marquise’s life … something Marquise admits he’s very upset about.
