Rapper 50 Cent didn’t like some comments he heard from Floyd Mayweather, who basically said he was more relevant than rappers who come and go. Former friend and rapper 50 Cent was a little perturbed and decided to take a shot at Mayweather in a 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 wasn’t done, later in the day he posted again on Instagram amending the bet to try and help Mayweather out, saying they’ll change it to the “Cat In The Hat.” The rapper said the change was made to ease the pressure off Mayweather who “can’t pronounce those words in that Harry Potter book,” adding that late night television host Jimmy Kimmel would air it.
That led to Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club in New York City, and namely Charlamagne Tha God, digging up some audio of Mayweather reading drops when he came to the station. Charlamagne tha God played the tape on air, which captures Mayweather struggling to read a 10 second drop.
Well Mayweather himself responding on his own Instagram, and he did so in the best way possible. He score boarded 50 Cent, but since 50 Cent is a rapper, we can use some hip hop lingo and say that Mayweather stunted on him. Mayweather posted a photo of his last two fight checks totaling $72.276,000 with the caption: “Read this $72,276,000.00. God bless.”
Well, Mayweather might be able to read but he can certainly add and count.
