50 Cent’s Grandmother, Beulah Jackson, Dies
50 Cent's beloved grandmother, Beulah Jackson, has reportedly passed away.
The rapper's young cousin, Continental Five, posted a photo of the beloved matriarch on his Instagram page on Monday (Sept. 15). "Will never forget you momma, I miss you already R.I.P my momma," he wrote.
Ms. Jackson is the grandmother who raised 50 Cent after his mother died. The rapper was just 8 years old at the time. She also inspired a young Curtis Jackson to pursue a career in rap.
"I knew if he couldn't have his music, there was no use to him living," she told PEOPLE in 2005. She also witnessed 50 getting shot nine times outside of her home.
In 2012, Fif appeared with his grandmother on the OWN series 'Oprah's Next Chapter.' On the show, 50 and Ms. Jackson shared childhood memories including the rapper's favorite food when he was a youngster: Pork and beans.
50 Cent has yet to comment on the passing of his grandmother. The cause of her death has yet to be confirmed.
We send our heartfelt condolences to 50 Cent and his family.
