The biggest off-the-wall news story of the day yesterday, was 50 Cent calling our former friend and boxer Floyd Mayweather. 50 Cent posted a video to Instagram expressing shock at some of the comments Mayweather made about hip hop artists, presumably the ones he beefs with like 50 Cent, Nelly and T.I.
So 50 Cent was a little perturbed and took a shot at Mayweather in a subsequent Instagram post challenging him to read one page out of a Harry Potter book without making a mistake. 5o Cent wrote in the caption: “Floyd will you [accept] my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping or f–king up. lmao”
50 Cent posted again on Instagram later in the day amending the bet to try and help Mayweather out, saying they’ll change it to the “Cat In The Hat.” He also mentioned that Jimmy Kimmel would air it on his show and 50 Cent explained that the change would be made to ease the pressure on Mayweather who “can’t pronounce those words in that Harry Potter book.”
Well Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club in New York City have provided the world what they’ve been waiting to hear. Charlamagne Tha God dug up some audio of Mayweather reading drops when he came to the station the last time, and played it on air exposing Mayweather for being unable to read.
It is worth noting that it seems like the rest of the morning show were uncomfortable with it, calling it disrespectful, but Charlamagne Tha God kept going. Check it out below.
