‘Good To See The Band Back Together’: 50 Cent, Floyd Mayweather End Legendary Rivalry As Internet Finally Breathes Sigh Of Relief

The ‘friends turned rivals’ duo, 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather have been making news for slandering each other for about a decade now. The feud has remained remarkably strong since it first appeared on our Instagram feeds around nine years ago. With another recent post by the rapper, 50 Cent, Instagram has been taken by storm with all the comments and reactions from the people. Though, this time it seems that the rivalry between the two has come to an end, at least for now that is. It is a relief that the childish low blows between the two have ceased and they are back together, hopefully as friends again.

How it all went down between 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather

When Floyd Mayweather was serving time in prison for domestic abuse in 2012, 50 Cent said that Mayweather wanted him to manage his promotional business. The rapper claims he successfully launched The Money Team business and started signing fighters to it. However, after Mayweather was released, 50 Cent claims his request for his share of the money, estimated to be $2 million, was ignored.

I’m sitting there going, ‘When you gonna give me the money; when you gonna give me your half of the money back?’ But I ain’t trying to press him because he just got out of jail,” said the rapper at the time.

Floyd Mayweather responded to this with “When I got out we were riding in my Lamborghini and he was trying to remove Al Haymon. It took me from 1987 until now to build my brand. I said, ‘Whatever you’ve got going on, let’s just stay friends. Then he said I owe him money; I don’t owe anyone money.” Since then the relationship between the two soured, with both of them pouncing on each other anytime they could.

Or he’d just have to let me not get down to 150. I tried I looked like a homeless person. I could make it down to probably, like 180,” 50 Cent said in an interview.
