It’s no secret — there’s no love lost between rapper 50 Cent and his former best friend, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather. The men have figuratively flicked boogers at one another in the months since bitterly passing ways — and the barbs are getting nastier with each re-tweet.
Floyd’s embroiled in at least three feuds with hip-hop artists; including 50 Cent, T.I. and Nelly. In an interview flippantly branded hip-hop artists (Read: 50) as “irrevelant” and accused musicians are the “In Da Club” hitmaker shot back with a profanity-laced Instagram video challenging the slugger to a literacy challenge. The clip is featured above, along with this caption:
“Floyd will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping or f**king up. lmao.”
Additionally, 50 has apparently joined forces with late night host Jimmy Kimmel Live.
“Jimmy said if Floyd accepts the challenge, then he’ll put it on the actual show… We don’t want to put pressure on you. We know you can’t pronounce those words in the Harry Potter book, so we gonna let you read Cat in the Hat.”
“Money” Mayweather’s alleged functional illiteracy could be more than just Fiddy’s cheap shot at a punchline. Early Friday, Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club leaked audio of Floyd — a high school dropout — struggling to read a drop.
