50 Cent is no longer claiming Tekashi 6ix9ine as his son.
50 Cent embraced the young, reckless rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine when he first stepped on the scene, as the veteran saw a lot of similarities in himself. Fifty even went as far as calling Tekashi his son, claiming he was the next “King of New York.” The “Gummo” rapper’s aggressive, combative personality got him a lot of attention, good and bad, and many could see why 50 Cent would cling to the young rising star.
But those days are over. 50 said he wouldn’t answer any calls from Tekashi if he were to reach out to him from federal prison in an interview on the Breakfast Club Tuesday.
6ix9ine, born Daniel Hernandez, is currently behind bars on racketeering charges and is reportedly cooperating with authorities in a plea deal that gets him a lesser sentence as long as he gives up vital information on his Nine Trey Gangsta Blood affiliates.
We all know 50 abides by the rules of the streets, and he said he hasn’t heard from Tekashi since he’s been locked up.
“Naw, I haven’t spoken to him,” he said about 25 minutes into the half-hour interview. Breakfast Club host Charlamagne Tha God asked 50 would he answer the phone if 6ix9ine called, to which the Power creator quickly replied “no.”
“That was your son, Fif,” Charlamagne laughed, but 50 said that relationship is dead.
“Yeah I know, but he’s his mother’s child now. After you do sh*t like that, you your momma’s child. Don’t call me. Don’t call me.”
50 Cent stopped by the morning radio show to discuss the final season of Power and why he decided to change the theme song back to the original, after getting backlash for remixing it with Trey Songz and A Boogie. He claimed fans bossed him around, and Trey was hesitant to do the song in the first place in fear of that exact reaction.
Fif also spoke about his new relationship and his opinion on Jay-Z’s new deal with Roc Nation and the NFL. You can catch the full interview below.
