50 Cent says that his beef with Floyd Mayweather began over a $2 million debt.
While 50 Cent is hardly a stranger to beef, perhaps his most surprising feud in recent history involves his former friend and TMT Promotions partner Floyd Mayweather. Now, in a recent interview with Power 106 FM, Fif reveals the origins of his beef with the famed boxer.
According to Fif, the feud began over a $2 million debt Mayweather owes to Fiddy for starting their TMT Promotions company prior to Mayweather’s recent prison sentence. Fif explained that after his release from jail, Mayweather neglected his debt to the rapper and instead spent his fortune on jewelry and cars. Eventually, tensions boiled over and Mayweather lashed out at the rapper on Twitter at the behest of his entourage.
“[Mayweather] changed his mind…as he was actually going in to jail, he asked me to help him with Mayweather Promotions,” Fif recalled. “As he actually got in and I took a look, I realized there is no Mayweather Promotions: there’s no LLC, there’s no seals, there’s no ‘incorporated’…technically, Floyd is a Golden Boy fighter [for Oscar De La Hoya’s promotion firm]. He fights on every Golden Boy card, they do all the footwork…so when he says, ‘Help me with Mayweather Promotions,’ and it’s not there, I go, ‘Okay, I know what he means: he wants me to put it together for him.’ So I do TMT Promotions, I get it all the way together…he comes home, and there’s the, ‘Let’s get Floyd back in pocket’ campaign that goes on, where there’s $300,000 chains being bought and buying him the new Lambourghini…and I’m sitting there going, ‘When are you going to give me the money?’…It’s about [$2 million owed] at that point. When he finally does bring up the actual situation, he acted like he didn’t know anything. Like, ‘I didn’t tell y’all to do that.'”
He added, “That’s not Floyd [on Twitter or Instagram dissing me]; Floyd don’t Tweet…he’s got somebody next to him. See, everybody around him is co-dependent, so they gonna roll with what he says regardless…they’ll tell him what to say. As soon as he gets confused, he’s gonna go, ‘Okay, okay, um, just call out [50 Cent].'”
