In the first episode of Power Book III: Raising Kanan, a young Kanan gets roughed up by playground bullies.

So his mom put some toys in a sock and tells Kanan to go back at his bullies with the DYI ball and chain.

According to the show's producer 50 Cent, that really happened to him.

He went on to explain that his mom -- who ended up getting murdered when he was eight -- could be a terrifying woman.

“There’s a point where, things that you are afraid of, that I got bumped around a lot in the park, but I was more afraid of my mom than the people I got bumped around by because I could not escape her. Her being a single mom at that point, she was everything," 50 told Page 6. “She was my mom and my dad and she was tough, so I didn’t know when it was OK to be emotional and when it wasn’t. She would look and say, ‘Get up from off the floor. What you don’t over there cryin’ and actin’ like a little girl.’ She’d get mad and you go, ‘Oh, sh*t, it’s not OK to be hurt this time.’
