“The system is so messed up, the law applies differently to people based on the personal perception of them,” the rapper, 40, explained via Instagram on Thursday. “It’s amazing how bad it is it’s sad.”
He lamented about the consequences of success in a followup post, writing, “When you make money you become a target. Not only by people who feel there competitors, but by system [itself]. The lawyers take someone’s case to go after your hard earned money pro bono.”
The posts come mere days after 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, reportedly revealed in a new court submission that the stacks of cash in his social media snaps are all fake and merely a way to promote his EFFEN Vodka formula.

“As a hip-hop artist and entertainer, it is imperative that I continue to project aspirational goals of success in order to preserve my brand and those I represent,” Jackson said, according to The Wall Street Journal. “What I say and what I do on social media has a direct impact on my music sales and the viewership on my television shows.”
Jackson addressed the judge in his third Instagram post about the case on Thursday. “When a judge reads a prepared statement to start proceedings to state they treat everyone the same in court,” he wrote. “You should be concerned, I already [knew] I would be treated differently. They know the difference between chapter 11 and chapter 7 they just never saw anyone from HipHop culture use it.”
He continued in a fourth post: “I have millions of dollar in my company’s, the court knows this. I was accused of committing fraud with nothing but a IG photo. I can careless what these people think of me but it’s not right. Now someone from secret service is asking if prop money was counter fitted. How the f— would I know that s— head? Smh.”
Soon, Jackson concluded his posting for the day with the “big announcement” that he would be taking a break from Instagram: “I’m done with IG after tonight, someone else will operate it for me.”
