Floyd Mayweather explains the root of his beef with 50 Cent.
The beef has continued to limp along until today, when Floyd Mayweather appeared on Complex News to address the origins of his and 50's bad blood. The boxer, speaking from his gym in LA, began by clarifying: "I don't bash no one on social media. I don't talk bad about no one on social media". On the origin of the beef, Floyd described the time before when him and 50 were friends and would "travel together" and "laugh together," and how it was 50 who initiated the split: "if you chose not to be my friend anymore then so be it." Apparently, 50 tried to turn the friendship into a business relationship, a move which Floyd did not take kindly to: "Me and 50 Cent were riding in my Lamborghini one day and he said, you know, I got the promotion company" to which Floyd said "it took me from 1987 till now to build my brand. I don't want nothin from G unit, whatever you got going on, let's just remain friends."
Apparently, after Mayweather denied the offer, 50 claimed the he owed him money. Mayweather's view on this: "I don't owe anyone money."
