(AllHipHop News) After a repeated onslaught of jokes about Floyd Mayweather not being able to read, 50 Cent clarified that his former friend is not illiterate. 50 talked about his comedic shots at the boxing champion during an interview with Angie Martinez.
“Champ can read. He can read,” said 50. “I don’t want to hurt him, but he do things that agitates me. He do things to aggravate me a little bit. I look at him like my little brother too, but he’ll pick at you like, ‘You ain’t bigger than me’.”
50 also confirms his “Floyd-can’t-read” assault on Instagram was a response to the boxer suggesting in a recent interview that he, Nelly, and T.I. were no longer relevant artists.
According to 50, Floyd should be careful attacking him, because he knows a lot of personal information about Mayweather. He adds the reading jokes were “light.” The mogul then goes on to give “The Champ” props.
“We cannot take away who he is. He is who he is. He’s one of the best fighters in our actual time,” 50 said. “I never try to discredit what he worked for, but in him trying to say – what he was trying to do in his statement is discredit what I do.”
Despite admitting Floyd can read and acknowledging his talent, 50 did not stop posting pictures to his Instagram page making fun of Mayweather. He’s latest jab is below.
