50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Beef: How It All Started



Floyd Mayweather explains the root of his beef with 50 Cent.
It's been almost a month since the beginning of the most recent chapter of the public Instagram beef between Floyd Mayweather and 50 Cent. There's been so much petty, back-and-forth name-calling that it's difficult to remember where it all started. Well, the recent escalation started with an $18 million watch. The Jacob and Co. timepiece that Floyd Mayweather bought at the end of June prompted 50 Cent to go on Instagram and tease him about it.
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."

I believe in constructive engagement and the Government represent all Liberians. My issue is, this is the same Spoon TV that faults everybody of being in cohort with the government once they hear gossip about you being friends with the CDC folks.
