50 Cent went all out to give his son, Sire, an exciting Easter holiday by gifting him a huge bucket of Sugar Factory candy. The "In Da Club" rapper shared a sweet snap of Sire on Instagram, and fans couldn't help but gush over him.
American rapper Curtis Jackson, popularly known as 50 Cent, may have built a reputation as a tough guy, but deep down, he has a soft spot, especially when it comes to his youngest son, Sire Jackson.
Over the Easter holiday, Jackson made sure his son had a memorable time by gifting him an enormous bucket of candy from Sugar Factory. The proud dad took to Instagram to share a photo of Sire appreciating the gift.

Sire was pictured hugging the big silver bucket which was overflowing with assorted candy. The eight-year-old, looking cozy in a tie-dye hooded sweater, sported a satisfied smile while looking directly at the camera. The post was captioned:
"?@thesugarfactory right on time for Easter, he gonna try to eat the whole bucket."
Jackson's photo received over 100k likes and hundreds of comments from impressed fans who were delighted to see Sire and applauded Jackson for being a good father.
One fan wrote, "I can't believe that's Sire. He is growing fast," while another added, "This is why I love and respect you 50!!!! @50cent YOU know and speak for the men who trying to be better fathers."
Jackson welcomed his son in 2012 with his ex-girlfriend, Daphne Joy. The "Ayo Technology" hitmaker's relationship with Joy made headlines several times over the years over allegations of domestic abuse and vandalism.
It appears that Jackson and Joy's relationship has improved over time, with the pair sharing a bond because of their son. Jackson even shared pictures of Joy and Sire on his Instagram page.
Marquise, an aspiring rapper, released his debut single calling out the "Many Men" rapper for being a terrible father.
While Jackson's relationship with Sire is commendable, he does not share the same bond with his eldest son, Marquise Jackson, who he shares with Shaniqua Tompkins.
Jackson and Marquise have been embroiled in a publicized bitter feud for years. In 2017, Marquise, an aspiring rapper, released his debut single calling out the "Many Men" rapper for being a terrible father.
In 2020, Jackson spoke up about his relationship with Marquise, highlighting that the cause for the fallout was greed. Jackson said his son never appreciated his privileged life despite the rapper's claim that he paid over a million dollars in child support.
Unfortunately, it seems that reconciliation is not in the books for the "Power" producer and his son as Jackson publicly admitted that he no longer loved Marquise.
