“The system is so messed up," the rapper wrote on IG.

50 Cent has closed up shop on his Instagram ways, quitting the social media service after several of his posts were recently tangled in legal drama.

Photos of 50 Cent's piles of cash flaunted on IG, including the one where the rapper spells "B-R-O-K-E" with wads of $100 bills, sent the rapper to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Hartford, Connecticut this week as he was asked questions regarding his financial state despite filing for bankruptcy in July 2015. After several of the IG posts drew suspicion, the rapper struck an agreement deal on Wednesday (March 9) in the case and admitted the money he used on social media was actually fake. Under the new terms of the agreement, Fif is set to pay his creditors 74% of what he originally owed them, which also includes the $6 million settlement with Lastonia Leviston, the Florida woman who sued him for putting her private sex tape on the Internet.

Amid all the drama, 50 Cent took to his IG page last night (March 10) to declare he will no longer be operating his Instagram page. The rapper's reasoning is due to the fact that he believes he is being singled out for being a wealthy hip-hop star. “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," he wrote in one of several IG posts. "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 fuck would I know that sh*t head? Smh”

50 signed off on the tweets with a message stating that someone else will be running his page.
