Allow me to speak in the third person.
Good Guy has kids.
Good Guy has a lady.
Good Guy loves kids.
Good Guy has some issues with his lady.
With that said, I am a fan of 50 Cent and his accomplishments, but I cant march down this path with him.
For those of you that havent been on the internet for the last day or so, 50 Cent took an excursion to Las Vegas and had Rick Ross baby mom Tia and her kids in tow. (Ross has one son with Tia.) If you did a double take, dont be surprised. I did too. I was sure that after 50s son appeared photoshopped on the monkey body earlier this year all, parties agreed that the kids were off limits.
Not the case apparently. So, I present to you Exhibit A:
If you were able to watch the video above, you just saw 50 Cent at Floyd Mayweathers Las Vegas Mansion. Visitors in the mansion included F. Gary Gray, the acclaimed filmmaker, and mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, along with 50 Cent and Tias kiddie entourage. 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather have beef with Rick Ross so they had no problem getting grimy in pursuit hurting Rick Ross through his child. Only Diddy seems to be uncomfortable with this overt act. The Bad Boy shuffles from room to room dodging the unavoidable cameras.
Let me state, this is wrong. I know all is fair in love and war, but this is wrong, even for 50 Cents standards. (Remember we were asking "Has 50 Cent gone too far?" earlier this year?) It was one thing when it was a lyrical display between Ross and Fif and there was humor mixed in, but these kids dont even know that they are mere disposable pawns in a war of men. This is despicable and I am ashamed to admit that I am fans of both men.
Men are not the only culpable ones here.
Tia Kemp, who is the mother of Ross son, has proven herself to be a harlot-scorned ways we may never know. But, even worse, she is now putting her kids (and herself) in harms way. I have to question any mother than puts her lust for revenge over the welfare of her kids. I know shes a bird, but even the nastiest birds want to shield heir kids from harm right?
Eh. In the video, 50 Cent and Floyd pose for pictures flaunting their money (stacks and stacks), their expensive cars and their celebrity, all of which eclipses Ross hood super stardom. It is an amazing display of infantile behavior from all parties.
Now, I am not stupid, this is promotion for Before I Self Destruct, but what are the ramifications and aftermath?
Does a shooter catch 50 Cent out there in a few years when his buzz dies down a bit?
I present, Exhibit B:
As a father, I am concerned for 50 Cents son, Marquis. He had dreams and aspirations too. I am sure that hes got security now, but what happens when he wants to go into the world as a man, as a rap producer (seen in Exhibit B)?
At the end of the day, I hope Rick Ross has the state of mind to chill and let these folks run around and do what they do. Hopefully, this prompts him to sit down with his son and explain to him what exactly is going on and where the kid fits into all this. Furthermore, if Ross has some housecleaning to do, hopefully he does that too. This dirty laundry stinks!
(Hell, Ross, if he is bout it, really needs to file for full custody of his son, because he now has grounds to get him.)
Exhibit C: a poll of the people. Has 50 Cent gone too far?
As a father, I cant imagine how I would react to such disrespect. Id die and kill for my kids. I dont have a stack so thats out. I dont have blammers so thats out. I guess I would have to fume quietly and remain dignified...as a man.
You dont get a n***a back like that Jay-Z
