It all began when Floyd revealed that Lil Wayne’s Young Money, Rick Ross’ Maybach imprint and his own the Money Team would be collaborating on new music. Next came the subliminal retweet from Fif’s rap foe Ross which read; “We the new Money team #Tmt #MMG #oilmoney,” an obvious reference to 50’s declaration that he was no longer a part of Floyd’s outfit.
Things got worse as the prize pugilist mocked 50’s headphone company SMS Audio by tweeting “SMS = Snakes Maneuver Slick” and “SMS= Sisters Managing Sports.”
Still the insults didn’t end there. Floyd then took to Instagram publishing photos of the G-Unit CEO with some pretty disparaging remarks. “A male boxing groupie.. hold my belts because your album sales have declined,” Mayweather wrote with a picture of 50 holding the boxer’s championship hardware.
“F— boy you look cute in that jacket,” Mayweather wrote next with a pic of the “In the Club” MC in the same Money Team jacket which he said he’d sell for $1 earlier this week.
Floyd continued to pour on the insults writing: “I respect the shooter not the one who got shot,” in reference to the 2000 incident where the star rapper was shot nine times and then fired off another jab which read: “Hold my money F— Boy” with a picture of 50 holding stacks of cash while the boxer hovers over him.
Meanwhile on 50 was busying using his Twitter to bait Floyd into a match with his fighter Yuriorkis Gamboa. “GAMBOA MOVING UP IN WEIGHT FLOYD. You should have know not to go against me PUNK,” he tweeted before throwing more shots. “I can’t hang out with Floyd no more,I’m tired of running from manny pacquiao.”
The rift between the two former friends have been building ever since Fif announced he would be going into business with Mayweather’s boxing rival Manny Pacquiao in September, but many have question if the beef is real or cooked up to promote future fights.
Do you believe the 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather beef is real? Let us know in the comments!
