50 Cent has revealed his first major purchase after being signed to Eminem’s Shady Records and Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment for $1 million.
Speaking to Apple Music’s Rebecca Judd while backstage at the London leg of his Final Lap Tour earlier this month, Fif revealed he bought a gift for a much-loved family member.
“I bought my grandmother a C220 Benz. I’ll never forget because when I got the car, I got it right away is the first thing I bought when the deal was done.” 50 Cent said.
50, who was raised by his grandparents after his mother died when he was eight, also admitted his grandfather wasn’t pleased with the gift as he was stuck with their old car.
“And then I went on the tour and I came back and my grandfather was on the porch and he was having a moment. So he was like, ‘I just went to work. I went to work, hurt my back, came back, and she done brainwashed my kids.’
“And he was talking about my grandmother because he was looking at her car in the front yard and he didn’t have a car. He had the older car and he said, ‘I went to work, hurt my back. Until my back hurt, everything.’” Fif added.
