The beef between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and 50 Cent is at full force. The boxer and rapper were once best friends, but their relationship deteriorated after a failed business partnership. Mayweather said in April that 50 was getting into the boxing promotional game. 50 took that a step further, implying in July that he was going to start promoting Mayweather and other fighters. When Mayweather got out of jail, he had other ideas, and by September we learned that their venture had fallen apart. 50 Cent confirmed that was the case when he went off on Mayweather over Twitter Wednesday. “TMT IS OVER the money team is no longer a team. So it SMS promotions that’s it thats all.SMSaudio … I’m no longer apart or down with TMT promotions. SMSaudio … If anyone wants a money team jacket I’m selling mine for a dollar. The nap back hat comes with it. That’s a fare price. SMSaudio … I move the fighters to SMSpromotion cause the other half of the money team .Didnt put up there $MONEY$.SMSaudio,” 50 Cent wrote on Twitter. He continued his assault on Mayweather on Friday: GAMBOA MOVING UP IN WEIGHT FLOYD. You should have know not to go against me PUNK #SMSAUDIO — 50cent (@50cent) November 3, 2012 I can’t hang out with Floyd no more,I’m tired of running from mannypacquiao #smsAudio — 50cent (@50cent) November 3, 2012 Floyd Mayweather wasn’t about to let 50 call him a “punk” and say he’s ducking Manny Pacquiao without fighting back. He called 50 Cent a “groupie” in response.
