(AllHipHop News) Retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather’s career features a connection to Hip Hop culture.
During an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, the undefeated prize fighter-turned-promoter spoke about current Hip Hop.
“Rap has took a heavy turn. At a particular time, rap was all about the lyrics. Now it’s a little different,” Mayweather stated.
He continued, “I can remember when all we talked about was just marijuana. Now it’s okay to be a junkie… It’s crazy that it’s okay to OD on drugs, it’s okay to take any drugs now, it’s okay to be a junkie.”
Mayweather mentioned late Hip Hop icons The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur as makers of timeless music.
The 40-year-old athlete also questioned why his frenemy 50 Cent was not given more industry awards for his music-based accomplishments.
