Thanks to social media and tender emotions, the brotherhood of 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr. has found its way into a virtual squabble, where both men are taking verbal extremes. Fat Joe, who is a close mutual friend to both 50 and Mayweather, is done playing peacemaker due to straight up distress.
According to TMZ, the “All the Way Up” rapper wholeheartedly believes there is still love between 50 and Floyd, but finds their time to reconcile will eventually come when both parties are ready. He finds social media to be a driving force in their ongoing feud with both parties having grand access to drop insults, at any given time.
“I’m tired of being the middle guy,” said Joe. “I’m tired of [being] the guy breaking everything up. I mean, you know, they’re brothers, man. I don’t like it. I don’t like it. Because they’re both beautiful guys to me, man.”
“They have a very special brotherhood friendship. Maybe somewhere down the road, you know me and 50 had beef seven years ago, now we cool.” He continued, “I think maybe in the long run, they’ll figure it out. I really believe that they sincerely love each other and they’re brothers. Unfortunately, this is playing out on social media.”
The beef started nearly a week ago when 50 commented under the photo of one of Floyd’s ex-girlfriends questioning his courting skills.”Oh no, you suppose to be on top champ. smh you keep losing these h*es in front of everybody,” 50 wrote. Mayweather backfired targeting 50’s relationship with his estranged son, rap career, finances, and even exposed an alleged case of herpes from “DJ,” whose identity has yet to be revealed. The back and forth eventually turned into the G-Unit founder accusing the star boxer of playing a huge role in the 2014 murder-suicide of Earl Hayes and his wife, Stephanie Mosely. According to 50, after Hayes and Mosely separated, Mayweather started to pursue Mosely and was present during the time Hayes pulled the triggered on himself and his wife, via Facetime.
Fat Joe later recognized the personalities of both men, deeming the outcome as a near expectation with 50’s “pitbull” ways and Floyd’s ripe armor of comebacks. The beef is still in motion as 50 continues to throw humorous jabs at Floyd, tirelessly ridiculing the fighter’s literacy which is supported by his infamous phrase, “get the strap.” While the fight seems to be pretty deep and dirty, there is no telling what direction it will go. Hopefully, it parks right on social media. Shall the outcome be in the favor of Fat Joe, the moral of this situation is bound to be infectious upon the Hip-Hop community.
