Making papa proud!
50 Cent built his lucrative career from entertaining the masses, and his 2-year-old son Sire Jackson has already picked up his dad's work ethic. The "Get Rich or Die Trying" rapper, 39, revealed that his son scored a whopping $700,000 contract to be the face of Kidz Safe, a company that designs headphones for children.
"It's an audio company; they paid him a big payment too," the rapper, born Curtis Jackson, said in an interview on March 4 with New York City's Power 105.1. "I was getting ready to say, 'This is your college fund,' but I gotta handle that part and let him just have that."
Sire doesn't seem to slowing down anytime soon. The adorable curly haired toddler put his skills to work in the Isabella Couture fashion show on Tuesday, March 10, in Los Angeles. Dressed sharply in a shiny gray suit, little Sire was unfortunately stricken with stage fright and had to be carried down the runway by his mom and 50 Cent's ex, model Daphne Joy.
"My son got cold feet at the last minute so mommy had to walk him,” Joy reported to her Instagram followers after the show. "He was the youngest model in the show and he handled it well until the last moment!"
