Jackson was born in the borough of Queens, New York City, and raised in its South Jamaica neighborhood by his mother Sabrina. A drug dealer, Sabrina raised Jackson until she died in a fire when Jackson was 8. Jackson revealed in an interview that his mother was a lesbian. After his mother’s death and his father’s departure, Jackson was raised by his grandmother.
He began boxing at about age 11, and when he was 14, a neighbor opened a boxing gym for local youth. “When I wasn’t killing time in school, I was sparring in the gym or selling crack on the strip,” Jackson remembered.He sold crack during primary school. “I was competitive in the ring and hip-hop is competitive too … I think rappers condition themselves like boxers, so they all kind of feel like they’re the champ.”
At age 12, Jackson began dealing narcotics when his grandparents thought he was in after-school programs and brought guns and drug money to school. In the tenth grade, he was caught by metal detectors at Andrew Jackson High School: “I was embarrassed that I got arrested like that … After I got arrested I stopped hiding it. I was telling my grandmother [openly], ‘I sell drugs.'”
On June 29, 1994, Jackson was arrested for selling four vials of cocaine to an undercover police officer. He was arrested again three weeks later, when police searched his home and found heroin, ten ounces of crack cocaine, and a starting pistol. Although Jackson was sentenced to three to nine years in prison, he served six months in a boot camp and earned his GED. He has said that he did not use cocaine himself. Jackson adopted the nickname “50 Cent” as a metaphor for change. The name was inspired by Kelvin Martin, a 1980s Brooklyn robber known as “50 Cent”; Jackson chose it “because it says everything I want it to say. I’m the same kind of person 50 Cent was. I provide for myself by any means.
Jackson’s personal life has not been very good. He had a very rough childhood, as he was involved in drug dealing at a very early age of 14. When he was 21, he dated Shaniqua Tompkins, with whom he has a son named Marquise. But Shaniqua sued him, and their feud was evident on their social media handles as well. Jackson later dated Daphne Joy and had a son with her as well named Sire. He is rumored to be dating Jamira Haines as of now.
Jackson, who has been arrested several times for drug dealing, has himself never been under the trap of drugs or alcohol. In 2015, 50 Cent filed for bankruptcy, citing debts of $36 million.
