If I got locked up and sentenced to a quarter century
Could I count on you to be there to support me mentally?

from 50 Cent (Ft. Nate Dogg) – 21 Questions Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

If 50 went to jail, he needs to know if his woman will comfort his fragile incarcerated spirit. “Quarter century” refers to the standard (minimum) jail sentence for first degree murder in the US; that’s where the term “25 to life” comes from.

Note: 50’s well known friend Eminem has an entire song about this subject called 25 To Life.
