He added that his whole upbringing helped to define him as a person. 50 lost his mother at the age of eight, which Sire is now.
“I look at my journey, some of the decisions that my mom made have guided mine, and it’s because people from her life had what was a representation of financial freedom, they had those nice things in front of me,” he continued.
“They got everything that you would want, so it kind of led me down the same path of the hustling and going to do different things, and, you know, I just hit the roof of that and wanted to do more, so I got involved in music and entertainment where we do things that exceed that level of success, completely.” 50 explained. “Like, that is the smallest thing, you know what I mean, it just felt big at that point, when I was little.”
