50 Cent Claims Floyd Mayweather Has To Fight Again Because He’s Broke

50 Cent seems to be under the impression that Floyd Mayweather has blown his massive fortune, which is why he’s been expressing interest in returning to the ring again. Fif visited Ebro In The Morning on Hot 97 this week to promote his new show, For Life, and ended up discussing his complicated beef with the boxer (8:40). Floyd recently addressed his relationship with Fif on an episode N.O.R.E’s Drink Champs Podcast, in which he claimed he had no idea why they fell out. Fif calls bullsh*t, but declared that they supposedly don’t have any issues anymore.

“We are good,” he said. “I just don’t understand why he keep having the conversation…how am I coming up in conversations? I don’t even care what they doing.” However, he realizes that any mention him is an intentional publicity stunt. “It only happens when it’s fight time. When it’s time to build some type energy or some sort press. When it’s time to make a fight, then that happens.”

Ebro later asks him if he thinks Floyd should step back in the ring. “I think he got to right now because the money gone,” he responds, to Ebro’s disbelief. “What you think? It’s fight, get the money, spend the money, fight. It’s been two years since his last fight]. “With that lifestyle, the money’s gone, trust me. Now he’s like…he’ll be at your local hosting in a nightclub because he needs that action right now.” His certainty that Floyd has blown his whole fortune in two years is surprising, considering the boxer was named the the highest paid athlete the decade by Forbes last year, raking in a whopping $915 million since 2010. Whether or not Fif’s beliefs are true, they both seem to be under the impression that they have no problems with each other, so maybe these two will finally go back to being best friends? 

50 Cent Says Nick Cannon Is ‘Legendary Corny’

50 Cent continues to stand by Eminem in the wake of his feud with Nick Cannon.

While promoting his new ABC show “For Life” on “The Breakfast Club,” the “Power” mogul confirmed that he advised Em not to respond to Cannon. “I was like ain’t nothin’ there,” said 50. “‘Cause Em, he’ll get hype and go what? Like you challenging him in that way–’cause he comes from that format, the battle format. They actually put him in a space where he’s the most comfortable when they attack him.”

Angela Yee also brought up Cannon’s latest diss track “Used to Look Up to You” from his January mixtape The Miseducation of the Negro You Love to Hate. While many thought the song was aimed at Slim Shady, Cannon told VladTV that the track was actually about 50.

Despite the beef, Fif has no interest in issuing a response. “I would never respond to Nick Cannon,” he said. “He’s legendary corny. He’s been corny forever–from the very beginning.”

While he’s not a fan of his rapping, 50 had kinder things to say about Cannon’s acting. When asked if he would cast him in one of his “Power” spinoffs, 50 responded, “Yeah, if he did a good job. He did great in Drumline.”

50 said he’s also unsure why the multi-hyphenate continues to rap when he excels in other areas. “I don’t know why he’s so passionate about it. What the hell’s going on? You suck, bro,” he said. “I’ma just tell you the truth. Like there’s never a moment when you said something and we was like, ‘Ooh, bars.’”

But if he ever ran into him again, he would remain cordial. “I wouldn’t just punch him in the face if I saw him. ‘Cause I know what that is. I know what you’re trying to do,” he said, noting that Cannon is “trying to build energy” for his radio and TV shows.

Elsewhere in the interview, Curtis also addressed his fallout with DJ Khaled. “He’s one of the ones–I let him go,” said 50, who confronted Khaled at a recent show. “He got a good look at my shoes when I was talking to him.”

Earlier this month, they were both in attendance at a pre-Super Bowl concert organized by mutual friend Fat Joe. “Joe knows how to balance what’s going on,” said 50. “So he’ll go, ‘Yo, you good? OK, stay right here. I’m gonna send Khaled on and get him out of here and then you come on right quick.’ He knows that if they put up that energy to me, then I’m gonna respond to it. Right there, I’m gonna respond to it. I’m not gonna wait ’til tomorrow. If you’re doing it right there, then let’s address it.”

But he noted, “I don’t even have an issue with him.”

50 Cent Gets Petty Over Estranged Son

50 Cent‘s estranged son will have to pay for lunch or dinner if he ever wants a relationship with his father. 50 Cent made his way onto Hot 97 during his recent promo run for ABC’s For Life, his latest television project that he serves as an executive producer. Despite Fif’s numerous television projects he’s working on, there’s always more to talk about with Fif including family life.

With his youngest son growing in front our eyes, Ebro dove into the topic Marquise Jackson, Fif’s eldest child that he publicly disowned. After detailing his relationship with Sir and his mother, and his desire to have a daughter, he explained that he never got to experience raising a teenager.

“I haven’t even experienced the teenage boy thing,” he said. “He drifted before that. Him and his mom was already — but that’s his mom’s child. You know what I mean? That’s his mom’s child.”

The chances a reconciliation are possible but it doesn’t seem like 50 Cent is necessarily into it unless there’s a free meal involved. “Now, he comes back and he wants to have a conversation,” Ebro presented to Fif as a hypothetical situation. 

“I’ll listen. Maybe go to lunch or dinner somewhere but he’ll pay for it,” he said. “He’s a man now. He’s a grown man.”

Peep the clip below. 

50 Cent Says Nick Cannon Has "Been Corny Forever"

50 Cent addressed Nick Cannon and Eminem‘s beef and Nick’s diss track toward him on The Breakfast Club, where he proclaimed that Nick has “been corny forever.” In the interview, Fif was asked if he really did tell Em not to go after Nick after his Nick’s diss track saga, which he confirms is true. “I was like, ain’t nothing there,” he said. “Cause Em, he’ll get hype and go ‘what?'” Like you challenging him in that way. Cause he comes from that format, the battle format. They actually put him in a space where he’s the most comfortable when they attack at him.”

Fif has become more and more involved in the never-ending Em/Nick beef as late, especially since Nick revealed that his track, “Used to Look Up to You,” is actually about Fif rather than Em, contrary to popular belief. “I would never respond to that,” Fif declared. “He is legendary corny. He’s been corny forever, from the very beginning.”

Charlamagne gave Nick a bit credit by noting that he is “a great businessman” and that “the only thing that makes him look corny is his rapping.” Fif agrees, questioning why Nick is “so passionate” about rapping, considering he “sucks” at it.  “I’ma just tell you the truth,” Fif says, addressing Nick. “There’s never a moment when you said something and we was like, ‘Ooo, bars.’” While he may not be impressed with Nick’s skills on the mic, Fif does think he’s an okay actor. He claims that he would even consider casting him in Power Book series if he did a good job, which we’re now dying to see happen.

50 Cent Casts Diddy’s Son In New Show

50 Cent‘s rivalry with Diddy, or Puffy as he calls him, doesn’t extend to the Bad Boy CEO’s son, Quincy. As 50 Cent continues his promo run for ABC’s For Life, he hit the Breakfast Club where he revealed that Quincy has been cast in one his shows. “His son, Quincy. He’s casted in one the shows,” he explained. “It ain’t got nothing to do with Puffy. His work got him in it, you know? He been workin’, doin’ his thing.”

50 Cent and Diddy don’t have a great relationship due but Fif said that doesn’t actually affect his decision to work with the people around him. “I would never not work with Puffy’s kids or anybody around that. Like, if we had an issue, it’s an issue between me and him and we’ll talk about it,” he continued. He continued to explain that he previously saw Christian Combs at a show before security took alert that Fif was in the building. “I’m not gon’ mess with nobody kids. That’s Yayo with the slap your kids type thing,” he added.

Of course, this seems to align with Fif’s decision to not argue with anyone anymore following the tragic passing Kobe Bryant. However, seeing his recent spats with his rivals, it’s unclear how long that’ll stick.

Peep the interview below with the Quincy bit starting around the 9:30 mark.

50 Cent Trolls Taraji P. Henson After ABC’s "For Life" Premiere

50 Cent‘s newly-launched ABC series For Life has the show’s executive producer reaching out to Empire’s Taraji P. Henson following the show’s debut. According to Nielson Social Content Ratings, For Life had a record-breaking debut this week. 50 Cent shared a text message exchange revealing his show was the “#1 most social series premiere any primetime entertainment program on broadcast or cable so far this season.” As Fif’s success in the TV industry continues, he took this very moment to let Taraji know that he’s trying to work with her. “alright, alright, alright. see tell @tarajiphenson i want to work with her LOL,” 50 Cent wrote. 

Fif and Taraji had a bit a back-and-forth last month after the TV exec. and rapper took a few shots at her by comparing a picture her to Cookie Jackson. Taraji clearly took fense to it, along with 50 Cent’s general beef with Empire since he looks at the show as competition but that didn’t stop the trolling. With 50 Cent’s ever-expanding resume as a TV executive, he trolled Taraji P. Henson even further when he revealed that he just sold FOX a show that would be replacing Empire.

Following the death Kobe Bryant, 50 Cent that he’d be focusing on himself and his work, vowing that he is “not arguing with anyone anymore.” Clearly, that promise was short-lived. 

50 Cent Continues To Taunt Gayle King & Oprah With Snoop Dogg Meme

50 Cent has been going after Oprah since it was revealed that she would be producing a documentary about the ual assault allegations against Russell Simmons. Oprah ended up backing out the doc, citing “inconsistencies” in the narrative, but it has been speculated that the backlash could have influenced her decision. Given 50’s persistent badgering Oprah, it came as no surprise when he targeted Gayle King for besmirching the reputation another prominent black figure, Kobe Bryant. Last week, King became embroiled in controversy after she brought up Bryant’s past rape allegations in an interview with Lisa Leslie.

Another one King’s leading antagonists was Snoop Dogg and Fifty has obviously found a meme to make light the whole debacle. The meme that Fif shared on his IG shows King and Oprah, who are best friends, riding around in a car together. King drives while O is in the passenger seat, looking especially frustrated. “Shit, Gayle just drive he looking over here,” is the dialogue ascribed to Oprah. The photo below reveals that she is referring to none other than Snoop Dogg, who shoots them a menacing glare from his own car. 

After Snoop broadcasted a fuming PSA about King with some violent undertones, he provided a clarification on how he felt about the situation

Floyd Mayweather Reflects On 50 Cent Beef Origins

Floyd Mayweather and 50 Cent have a complex relationship to say the least. Though once-loyal pals, the pair’s dynamic is currently poised to descend into a slew free-flowing insults at the slightest provocation. Today, during his recent appearance on N.O.R.E and DJ EFN’s REVOLT-hosted Drink Champs, Money Mayweather took a moment to reflect on where it all went wrong. He may have never lost a fight, but what he did lose was far worse — a friend.  

Around the thirty-two minute mark, N.O.R.E. asks for a clarification their history. “The thing is this,” says Floyd, claiming to be speaking from the heart. “I never understood where all this came from. 50 be at my house every day. He’d sleep at my house. We’d go to the boxing gym, we’d kick it, hang out. We cool. I come home, I went away on a little vacation. When I was on my vacation I seen it said he started the TMT Promotions. When I came home, I guess he wanted to be 50/50 partners in the boxing business. My thing was I was happy and comfortable with what I was already doing, and he wanted to be a part what I was doing. I said we friends, we got a great relationship, we can keep it like that.”

“I don’t know if he got upset. One day I saw on the internet 50 Cent said something about me. That’s my family. I was with that muthafucka every day. Of course, I didn’t know what was going on. But I’m a fighter, you shoot at me I shoot back. I can’t keep playing the back and forth game…I’m a fighter. Like a promotion for a fight. We talk and talk and talk. If we’re not going to do anything just let it go. That was it.”

“We could have stayed friends,” explains Floyd, maintaining that he had no idea why 50 was so upset about his decision. “I never asked him to get a part G-Unit. I just thought we had a genuine friendship. That’s what I thought. It is what it is. I’ve been nothing but good to him. I’m 100. I’ve been nothing but solid with him. I’m a solid dude and he knows I’m a solid dude. This man come to my house, my chef cooked big meals for us. We sit back and kick it. We traveled on the jet together.” Check out the whole interview below, courtesy REVOLT and TIDAL. 

50 Cent On "For Life" Character & "Bad Guy" Preferences

Recent Hollywood Walk Of Fame star recipient  50 Cent continues to lay the foundations for his television empire. With Power ficially concluded, Fif has set his sights on For Life, which recently premiered on ABC. The series, on which he serves as an executive producer, centers around the wrongfully convicted Isaac Wright Jr., who pursues a legal career in order to help those wronged by the justice system. As was the case with Power, 50 gets a chance to flex the acting chops once more, this time as inmate Cassius Dawkins.

Today, Fif spoke with Fox News about his acting preferences, which ten lead to portrayals  tough guys and criminals. As he explains, his gravitation toward morally-dubious characters derives from audience expectation. “I’m just fering what I know the audience is willing to embrace at the present moment and therefore, now I’m moving to some different things like this.”

“You’ll understand one is a guy who never made any money,” continues 50, comparing Dawkins with his beloved Power character Kanan Starks. “So if you’ve never made any money on the street and he’s incarcerated, then comes the altercations inside the jail – and developing reputations from having those altercations and then he finds a bigger home in jail than on the outside because he doesn’t mean anything to the free world. You only mean something in jail.” He also promises that For Life will mark the last time he takes on such a role, though he neglected to mention any dream parts he’s got kicking around up there.

Check out the full interview here, and sound f in the comments if you’re eager to catch For Life’s premiere tonight. Will this be one worth sticking with? 

Starz Announces Four ‘Power’ Spinoffs

The “Power” universe is expanding.

Four spinoffs of the hit Starz series are in the works—”Power Book II: Ghost,” “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” “Power Book IV: Influence,” and “Power Book V: Force.” The network announced the new shows in a teaser, which aired during Sunday’s series finale of “Power.”

Mary J. Blige and Method Man will star in “Power Book II: Ghost,” which was announced last year and is set to debut this summer.

“Power Book III: Raising Kanan” centers around the upbringing of 50 Cent’s drug-dealer character Kanan Stark, who was killed in Season 5.

“Power Book IV: Influence” will explore the political world of Larenz Tate’s governor-to-be character Rashad Tate. The fifth chapter, “Power Book V: Force,” will focus on Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora), Ghost’s partner-in-crime, who trades NYC for L.A.

“In television history, only a select few shows have inspired four consecutive series extensions, launched into active production and development at the same time,” Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch told Deadline. “These new and exciting chapters will continue the journey of some of ‘Power’s’ most controversial characters while featuring a growing ensemble of complex, distinct characters along with the high-octane drama that set ‘Power’ in a class of its own.”

50 Cent, who is an executive producer of “Power,” will also debut his new legal drama “For Life” Tuesday on ABC.

Taxstone Says N.O.R.E Called 50 Cent A Snitch

Taxstone is the latest to reveal 50 Cent “snitch” allegations, this time by way N.O.R.E. This isn’t the first time somebody has tried to tear down 50 Cent’s platform by referring to the man as a “snitch.” In one the rapper’s most recent feuds, French Montana actually unveiled paperwork that allegedly places Fiddy in government informant territory, exposing him for leaking information to the feds in ongoing criminal cases. Although those rumblings have been relevant within the hip-hop community for years upon years, 50 Cent refuses to allow any type slander on his character, striking back with the force a tank and continually ending up on top his opponents. During a recent podcast appearance from behind bars with Ben Baller, Taxstone spoke about how he was advised not to invite 50 Cent onto his own podcast because his “snitch” reputation, noting that a conversation with N.O.R.E left him confused about the situation.

“I remember me and NORE had a conversation and I was telling him how 50 Cent was one my favorite rappers,” says Tax during his rare audio appearance. NORE allegedly agreed that Fif was one the greatest to do it, but he also explained why Tax would never want to interview the man. 

“He was like, ‘Yeah, I ain’t gonna lie, 50 always was hard,’ but he was like ‘Yo I’ma tell you why you would’ve never wanted to interview 50.’ So I was like, ‘Why?’ He was like, ‘Yo, ’cause that n***a 50 really is a snitch.’ So I was like, ‘he a snitch?’ I ain’t never seen no paperwork on him. I’m from East New York and we don’t come from a culture promoting that type shit without paperwork. The only way you can promote something like that without paperwork is if somebody’s on camera doing it. So I was confused because I’m like, what the fuck like, why the fuck would he have 50 on Drink Champs if he just said that 50 was a snitch.”

Taxstone gets into some pretty engaging topics during the podcast. Check out this bit below.

Nick Cannon Says Fourth Eminem Diss Track Is Actually About 50 Cent

After Eminem brought up Nick Cannon‘s name on Fat Joe’s most recent album, the comedian decided that he would devote a bunch interview time to the Detroit rapper, speaking on him almost every chance he gets. At this point, some people believe it’s almost laughable how ten Nick Cannon speaks about Eminem, releasing a handful diss records against him as well. The most recent instance Nick shit-talking the self-proclaimed Rap God comes his interview with DJ Vlad, who has been asking some instigative questions as he attempts to get the juicy scoops about their long-lived beef. A fourth song referencing the rapper, titled “Used To Look Up To You,” was released last month and in it, Cannon seemingly talks trash about Marshall Mathers’ fans but, in reality, it turns out that the lyric in question was actually about 50 Cent.

“N***as out here tweetin’ like they been a savage/Used to Look Up to You/Dick ridin’ lil Marshall Mathers,” raps Nick Cannon on “Used To Look Up To You.” The bar was perceived to be a dig at all Em’s fans but it was actually meant for Shady’s longtime collaborator, 50 Cent.

“‘Used To Look Up To You,’ if you actually listen to it, is more about 50 Cent] and a lot these other rappers,” says Cannon in the newest upload from his interview with Vlad. “That was clearly about 50 and a lot his other fans.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the actor says that Eminem is a product institutionalized racism. Watch below.

50 Cent Cuts Interview After French Montana Question

50 Cent is doing the press rounds ahead of the For Life premiere, a new legal drama with ABC that Fiddy executive produced.

During a recent sit-down with Complex, the television executive was perfectly willing to talk about his relationship with Eminem and various business endeavors, but he stopped short when the topic of French Montana came up.

In a clip of the conversation, he’s asked if he and French are cool to which Fiddy says, “I don’t really have interest in it ’cause there’s nothing really going on.”

When pressed about the rumor he “snuffed” the Moroccan rapper out in a club, 50 denies it, saying, “No, there’s no truth to that. Why would I do a thing like that?”

He then appears to get increasingly annoyed after the interviewer says, “I wouldn’t put it past you.”

At this point, the interview is over. 50 stands up and starts taking his mic off.

“Why would you think that way?” he says as he plots his exit. “You think Will Smith would do that? I can’t believe you would say these things about me. This guy right here would assault French Montana. Why would I do a thing like that?”

The Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ OG and Montana engaged in an e-battle last month after Fiddy accused the “Unforgettable” rapper of buying an old Bugatti.

From there, Montana called 50 a “dinosaur” and accused him of being a snitch, comparing him to incarcerated rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.  

After 50 appeared to let off the gas, Montana posted a photoshopped image of Eminem and 50 appearing to kiss. Their short-lived e-battle seemed to end after Montana leaked a Power clip ahead of the show’s midseason premiere.

Evidently, that’s not something 50 feels like addressing. For Life premieres on February 11.

Teairra Mari Takes Shot At 50 Cent, Fofty’s Wrath Be Damned

Night and day. Yin and yang. Ice and fire. Many things exist in oppositional states. Though many have found themselves on the receiving end 50 Cent‘s wrath, few have withstood his barrages like his former sparring partner Teairra Mari. Even after losing a lawsuit left her indebted to her bitter rival, Mari has remained adamant about taking shots at every turn. Even after 50 vowed to forsake argumentative behavior, going so far as to politely inquire about the state his still-owed finances. 

Teairra Mari Takes Shot At 50 Cent, Fty's Wrath Be Damned

Following the verdict that Mari was to pay Fif an additional five-thousand dollars in legal sanctions, Mari took to Instagram to let f some steam. TSR captured a post-and-delete she uploaded to her IG page, sarcastically congratulating Fif on his recent induction to the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. To add insult to injury she cropped his head onto that a bagel-eating vagrant, knowing full well how much 50 enjoys a volley memes.  

How much longer can his argument embargo carry on? Especially if Mari keeps provoking the proverbial bear, knowing full-well that Fty’s wrath lies dormant. If anyone can bring the sinister alter ego out retirement, it’s his old friend Teairra.
