50 Cent is very generous but he is also very practical. It's not too well known that 50 Cent helps his label mates (artists on G-Unit Records) a lot, including buying them houses. He bought Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) and Olivia a home. Since doing so, Olivia has been dropped from G-Unit Records and 50 Cent was recently asked about this situation by Sister2Sister Magazine. 50 says…
"In Olivia’s case, I actually bought her a home [but] she’s not actually on the label anymore…. When Olivia saw that [I bought Prodigy from Mobb Deep a home], she wanted to move into her own place. She didn’t have that brand that allowed her just to pay [me] back, so I said ‘let me just buy the place [in my name].’ She maintained the upkeep, and a year from now – best-case scenario, she can buy the house. And worst case scenario, she would have paid for the upkeep for a year and I’ll be able to sell it with a little bit of equity involved in the apartment."
