Floyd Mayweather on 50 Cent: I wish him nothing but the best

Floyd Mayweather visited with a radio station in Atlanta this week to promote the music album for one of his artists, and during the interview he briefly addressed his beef with 50 Cent.

Mayweather was expressing disappointment over the way the media covers the times he goes clubbing and partying. He complained that outlets are selective about what images they choose to use in stories (like this for instance). He brought up his issues with 50 Cent in the same context, as if he was blaming the media for it.

“Even the thing with me and 50 Cent. A mother and father may not always see eye-to-eye. A sister and brother may not always see eye-to-eye. If I call someone my real friend, I can’t sit back and bad-mouth him. I wish him nothing but the best,” Mayweather said on V-103 in Atlanta.

“He’s a hell of an artist and we move on and we do us.”

Mayweather was very composed when he was talking about 50 Cent and didn’t seem to be bothered. I don’t know that this answer from Floyd was enough for me to believe that the Twitter beef between the men was staged, but it’s enough for me to recognize that Floyd is not taking everything public. This stance actually fits into the way he’s behaved throughout the beef; it’s been mostly 50 Cent initiating the trash talk, with very little response coming from Floyd.

Here is a video of Mayweather’s interview with V-103 in Atlanta (the 50 Cent part comes around 3:30):
