For the last couple of months, rappers Nelly, T.I. and 50 Cent have been taking multiple verbal jabs at Floyd Mayweather via social media and interviews. T.I. is at odds with the boxer over his wife Tiny Harris, Nelly is on bad terms with Floyd over the boxer’s ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson, while 50 Cent is just being his usual trouble making self.
But in a recent interview, the boxer says he’s not worried about rappers being at odds with him. He tells MLive.com:
“I’m relevant. I’m relevant. My life is the sh*t. I’m something to talk about. When people are not relevant…they’re not moving units like they was once moving…you have to realize this, I’ve been relevant for 18 years.”
When asked if he thinks rappers use his name for relevance, he says:
“Absolutely. I don’t have anything negative to say about any Hip Hop artist. A lot of these rap artists rap about certain things, but I really live it. Every home that I have is paid for. Every car that I have is paid for. And I am a $100 million man. I mean this is the truth, it’s not a lie.
“If these guys claim that they doing certain numbers, and certain units we’ll see. My fight is already sold out.You could take me anywhere. You could take me to the moon, and believe me, everybody’s going to try to take a trip to the moon to watch me fight.”
Some people are speculating this interview is what caused 50 take shots at Floyd yesterday on Instagram.
Check out the video below:
I’m happy to see a black man doing as well as Floyd but you can tell he’s really a miserable person when you take away all the his materialistic possessions. I mean it’s sad his money is his answer to everything.
I agree. Even with Shantel leaving him he thought money would be the thing to make him feel better about it.
I soooo love this. This is how I feel about Floyd too. He really thinks money is all he needs to handle anything. He uses his money to get women, friends, and even cope with people not liking him. It’s sad. I would love to be rich but I won’t ever make the mistake of thinking money solves every problem. That’s just not true.
Really??? So what the f-ck does make 50 cent??
Who hurt you to the point that you can’t even express yourself like an adult on this blog? Come correct or don’t ever reply to me again.
50 ain’t sh-t either but the last time I checked he ain’t out here buying multiple hoes lavish cars just so they will f-ck him now is he? 50 isn’t the one who got robbed by the same birds he’s spending money on now is he? 50 also isn’t the one taking pictures of all his money and posting it to IG either, right? Floyd is the one bragging in interviews about having multiple women because he can pay for them all. Face it, Floyd is way more materialistic than 50. 50 is a clown but he ain’t stupid. Floyd is dumb as hell and will be broke in ten years tops.
At least 50 can read a book aloud without embarrassing himself.
Awwww, the girls are having a tiff. Bless their hearts!
LOL Floyd stop.
Does Floyd not understand he won’t be relevant either once he retires from boxing?
They all need to just sign up for a reality show at this point because this is what it has been feeling like the last couple of weeks. 50 cent is already acting like Karlie Redd with his messy a-s.
Floyd is such a female sometimes. Yes, he’s very successful but if he didn’t care he wouldn’t be talking about it.
I bet he won’t take 50 Cent up on that Harry Potter challenge tho. Lmao.
But what does his money and relevance have to do with anything? 50 has as much money as Floyd does, and probably even more because of all his business deals. T.I. has money too hell he’s eating off Iggy right now and has producer credits on two reality shows. And Nelly well…I guess the shade only applies to Nelly because Nelly really doesn’t have much going on these days. But regardless, they have issues with Floyd because he’s a disrespectful person. The way he talked about Tiny even made me want to slap his arrogant a-s.
Nelly’s getting royalties from the bee in that cereal commercial dancing to “Hot in Herr”….well that’s something, ain’t it? Lol!
But I haven’t seen that commercial run in weeks tho lmfao
Ha. You’re right. I forgot all about that.
This is like a soap opera for thugs.
All of these men are childish if you ask me.
But will he accept that Harry Potter challenge from 50 though???? Yes this dude has mad money but all the money in the world and he can’t even read efficiently. I was embarrassed for him and BET when he had to read something on the awards show SMDH….3 words for Floyd: Hook On Phonics………Lmao
Floyd is a very insecure person. Money won’t cure that.
Floyd would be nothing without his money. Money makes him feel like a man. That’s some sad ish.
If Floyd keeps throwing his money at all these birds he won’t be the $100 million man in about ten years.
He’s still on this?
I’m sorry Floyd, but here is one person that will not go anywhere to see you fight.
So he won’t be reading a page of Harry Potter aloud huh? That’s what I thought.
Can’t stand Floyd.
He won’t be relevant once he stops boxing though…
Floyd can count his money but can’t even read. The hell?
50 and Floyd act like scorned lovers. Did they have a bad breakup or something?
All these men are too old for this cattiness. They need just stop it. All they’re doing is giving legs to the gay rumors.
