If there’s one thing that’s hugely important to 50 Cent, it’s loyalty.
Atlanta Hawks owner Jesse Itzler said so himself in a recent TikTok video.
Apparently, 50 Cent includes a very specific details in his contracts stating he will only fly with Marquis Jet.

It turns out the private jet business is one of a number of companies owned by Itzler.
This gesture by 50 Cent may be to show loyalty to Itzler for hiring him as an intern in the 1990s.
According to Complex, the American rapper was an intern at Itzler’s music marketing firm, Alphabet City Sports Records, before he started his successful music career.
“I have this kid who’s a boxer, who wants to be a rapper, but he wants to get some business experience,” Itzler recalled in the TikTok video.
“So we made a deal that he would intern for me for whatever experience I could give him, and in exchange, he’d help me write these jingles that I was doing at the time.”
Itzler then went on to explain how their relationship resumed – and grew.
“Fast forward 10 years later, we go on our own way, and 50 becomes this amazing international star, and I have a private jet company called Marquis Jet. And by fluke, he’s a guest on one of our airplanes.
“So I had the pilot write a note. It said, ‘50, you’re never gonna believe this. This is Jesse from the jingle company and you’re on one of my airplanes.’
“And the next day he wrote into all of his contracts that he would only fly with Marquis Jet. That is a lesson on loyalty, and you never know who the next 50 Cent is gonna be.”
In typical fashion, 50 Cent confirmed the tale on Instagram.
“This is 100 percent true Jessie is my guy, I think he owns the Atlanta Hawks now I gotta catch up with him,” 50 responded.
If that’s not the ultimate show of loyalty, I don’t know what is.
