Floyd Mayweather Sr: 50 Cent is a ‘player hater,’ should fight my son

Floyd Mayweather Sr.Floyd Mayweather Sr. was asked for his thoughts on the ongoing feud between 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr. during an interview with “The Vegas Take” on Fox Sports 760 Las Vegas on Thursday, and per usual the elder Mayweather did not disappoint. From what we could understand, Mayweather Sr. is not happy with 50.

“50 Cent, let me tell you something, 50 Cent seems like he’s got a problem since Floyd left him,” Floyd Sr. said. “Whatever it was that made Floyd leave, he left. Floyd had nothing else to say about it. That’s 50 Cent that keeps putting stuff all over … He’s a world known singer and acting like a kid, man.”

Mayweather Sr. also pointed out how 50 Cent was asked to spell some word (we aren’t sure what he’s talking about) and couldn’t do it. He then called the rapper a “player hater.”

“All the hip-hop fighters, all the R&B fighters, all of them — I don’t give a damn if they’re white, black, Jew, mexican whatever, pretty much all of them have dropped out of school,” Mayweather said. “My son ain’t got no reason to look back about nothing. He did his job. He ain’t gotta worry about nobody like 50 Cent because 50 Cent is a player hater.”

And of course, Mayweather Sr. thinks 50 should stop talking and put the gloves on if he has a problem.

“Put the video out when he go up against Floyd, he weighs over 100-something pounds over Floyd,” he said. “Let him go against Floyd, then we’ll have something to talk about. Floyd will stop all that s— in the papers. There won’t be no more said when Floyd gets ahold of his ass.”

While 50 recently said he loves Mayweather Jr. and just disagrees with the concept of The Money Team, it’s obvious he is determined to get under the champ’s skin. He seems to have pissed Floyd’s dad off in the process.

50 Cent opens up about relationship with Floyd Mayweather


For whatever reason, 50 Cent has launched a full-blown social media assault on Floyd Mayweather Jr. over the past couple of weeks. It started with 50’s spin-off on the Ice Bucket Challenge when he offered to donate a ton of money to the charity of Mayweather’s choice if Floyd could read one page of a Harry Potter book. The feud has snowballed from there.

The interesting thing about all this is 50 Cent and Mayweather used to be best friends. During a recent interview with Miranda Johnson of XXL Magazine, 50 tried to explain how his relationship with the champ went south.

“Floyd is one-dimensional,” he said, via Edward Chaykovsky of BoxingScene.com. “The Money Team concept is one-dimensional. We actually started pushing it during the recession. It was cool because his viewership was going up but it’s not actually the right message for me and who I am.

“So I started working with the United Nations and The World Food Program and Feeding America. Providing meals through the SK Energy Shots and that was at the same time because I started realizing that this is not the right concept of what you should present to the public.”

In other words, 50 decided that Floyd is too selfish. He said that Mayweather does things he doesn’t understand, which results in 50 becoming agitated and doing things in response — like posting this hilarious Manny Pacquiao meme mocking Floyd. However, 50 insists he loves Mayweather like a little brother.

“I don’t hate him. I love him, actually,” he said. “Entering the sport of boxing is a reflection of that relationship. He doesn’t make any money away from the sport of boxing. That tells you when he’s done fighting, he’s done period. I just try to encourage him to do things away from the sport…

“It’s pretty tough to digest the concept that we don’t spend money the same. He spends all of his money. He lives a richer lifestyle than we actually live day to day. In the end, it’s not a sustainable lifestyle. I’ll have to help him when it gets too tough. We’ve had conversations about this.”

Could this be why Mayweather recently welcomed Warren Buffett to The Money Team? Maybe he realized that he needs to explore other avenues for making money, especially since he is in his late 30s. I doubt he’s worried just yet, regardless of what Curtis has to say.

50 Cent mocks Floyd Mayweather with great Manny Pacquiao meme

Manny Pacquiao Floyd Mayweather meme

50 Cent really is a master troll. The guy loves screwing with former best buddy Floyd Mayweather Jr. and has no chill. On Wednesday, 50 hit Floyd with possibly his best burn yet.

Playing off the whole saga over Floyd’s supposed inability to read, 50 posted this great meme with Manny Pacquiao on Instagram.

Things have gotten so bad that Floyd’s publicist sent out a note and video to the media this week assuring everyone that Floyd can, in fact, read.

Don’t forget that shortly after breaking up with Floyd, 50 started buddying up with Pacquiao. These hanger-on rappers ain’t loyal!

Floyd Mayweather responds to 50 Cent in typical ‘Money’ fashion


Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally fired back at 50 Cent on Saturday following several days of criticism.

The saga between them started when 50 told Floyd he would donate $750,000 to the charity of Mayweather’s choice if the champ could read a single page of a Harry Potter book without struggling. An old audio recording from a radio show later surfaced that featured Mayweather struggling to read some promos for the station.

What does Money Mayweather have to say about all this? He posted the photo you see above on Instagram, which shows two paychecks he received from recent fights. Most of us will never see that many zeros on a check in our lives.

“Read this $72,276,000.00,” Mayweather wrote. “God bless.”

Floyd may struggle with reading, but his math is pretty good. He may lack certain skills that we learn in grade school, but Mayweather certainly knows how to make money. No one can deny that.

50 Cent will donate $750K to charity if Floyd Mayweather can read one page of Harry Potter book

50-Cent50 Cent brought us his own version of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Thursday, and Floyd Mayweather Jr. probably isn’t going to appreciate it. Rather than dumping a bucket of ice water over his head, 50 has offered to donate $750,000 to the charitable organization of Mayweather’s choice if Floyd can read one page of a “Harry Potter” book without messing up.

“Floyd will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping or f—ing up. lmao,” he wrote on Instagram along with the video you see above.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with their history, Mayweather and 50 Cent used to be best friends until they had a falling out. They have been cordial toward one another in the past, but 50 seems to be determined to get under Mayweather’s skin lately. The rapper was one of the people who called out Mayweather after Floyd shouted at T.I.’s wife on the red carpet at the BET Awards.

It should be noted that the Ice Bucket Challenge is a social media movement that has helped raise money and awareness for ALS, which is also known as Lou Gherig’s Disease. If 50 is willing to pay Floyd $750,000 if Mayweather proves he can read, we’re hoping he at least donates some money to the ALS Foundation.

50 Cent tells Floyd Mayweather to stop messing with Tiny


Floyd Mayweather Jr. got the internet buzzing once again on Sunday night when he shouted at T.I.s wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle on the red carpet at the BET Awards. Mayweather may have just been trying to say hello to Tiny, but she reportedly went out of her way to avoid him. 50 Cent feels that Floyd did enough where he needs to be told to back off.

On Monday night, 50 posted a couple of messages and a video on Instagram telling Mayweather to leave Tiny alone.

“Now what the f— is champ doing with TI woman again,” 50 Cent wrote alongside the photo you see above. “He think sh– sweet man DAMN. Leave the man lady alone floyd. I’m call you to talk.”

50 then wrote, “Floyd you better STOP, that is the man WIFE. LMAO this is gonna get out of control. MO took miss J not TI,” and posted a video message. The video contains some very strong language.

Vladimir Guerrero hits a double on 50 Cent’s first pitch (Video)

Vladimir Guerrero 50 Cent50 Cent’s first pitch at a Mets-Pirates game last week was one of the worst ceremonial first pitches we’ve ever seen. It was so bad it went partway up the first base line and nearly hit a photographer, and it left the entertainer giving a pretty bizarre explanation for it. But the pitch wasn’t so bad that Vladimir Guerrero wouldn’t have been able to get a piece of it.

The folks over at MLB FanCave took the 50 Cent first pitch and knew exactly what to do with it, splicing in the former Angels MVP and notorious bad-ball hitter getting a double on it.

How clever and awesome was that?

But wait! MetsKevin11 may have 1-upped the Vlad video. Here’s 50 Cent striking out Bartolo Colon:
