(AllHipHop News) Social media has become the new platform for rappers to fire both blatant and subtle shots at their adversaries. So when Rick Ross posted a picture of himself wearing Floyd Mayweather’s “The Money Team” hat on Instagram was that Rozay just showing support for the boxing legend or was he sending a subliminal diss at his nemesis 50 Cent?
Mayweather showed love back to Ross on his own IG page. He wrote, “Thanks for the support [Rick Ross]. We will continue to support you also.”
Ross and 50 have been part of a back-and-forth beef for years. The MMG boss and the G-unit leader went at it again this year with IG being the main place where the conflict played out. In addition, 50 sued Ross for using his hit record “In Da Club” on the #RenzelRemixes mixtape.
Last year 50 also had an online spat with Mayweather. His constant clowning of Mayweather’s reading ability was in the headlines for weeks. Reportedly, the frenemies have since settled their issues, but the Queens native has often showed disdain for people connected to him acknowledging his rivals.
The Kanan Tape creator once targeted Slowbucks co-founder Windsor “Slow” Lubin after the fellow New Yorker posted a picture with 50 Cent’s estranged son Marquise Jackson and known 50 Cent foe Trav. 50 also famously kicked The Game out of G-Unit after the Compton emcee refused to get involved in the crew’s beef with other rappers like Nas, Fat Joe, and Jadakiss.
