The rate at which these two former friends and one-time business partners are feuding has left many confused. In the past it will be remembered they engaged in a Twitter beef that on at least one occasion was fabricated in order to drum up some attention for the pair.

This time round It seems real and very personal after the undefeated boxing champion launched a savage attack on the rap star, who returned fire with some cutting digs.

Mayweather directed a myriad of insults at 50, claiming the G-Unit boss is a ‘confidential informant’ and a snitch who gossips “like a bitch”.

Floyd went as far as calling out his relationship with his son, Marquise Jackson.


Curtis “Confidential Informant” Jackson, you're mad because your oldest son Marquees mother doesn’t want to be with you! Your Son, your own flesh and blood don't want nothing to do with you! You haven't had a hit song on radio in who knows when and you’re definitely not hot enough to even sell records anymore so Interscope dropped you. You are jealous of any rapper, athlete or entertainer that’s hot or got something going on for themselves. You are a certified snitch and we got paperwork to prove it. You talk about Ja-Rule but you stole his whole style and ran with it! You’re the only self proclaimed gangster that’s never put in work! You need to pay homage to the real 50cent for stealing his name and his storyline. Your claim to fame was getting shot numerous times & living to tell it and you think that's Gangster? Where at? You’re currently living in a fucking apartment in Jersey, you are always in somebody else's business just to stay relevant. You should just become a blogger cause it’s obvious you don’t have nothing going on in your life. Are you mad that Kanye West ended your career? The only thing you got going on is Power and everybody watches that because Ghost is a dope ass character on the show. You can leave the show everybody will still watch Power, but out here in the real world I’m The Real Ghost. That’s not a Mansion in Connecticut that you're in debt for, that’s a dump, a money pit an oversized trap house! It was dope when Mike Tyson had it in the late 80’s early 90’s, but you couldn't afford to maintain it. You’re always talking about somebody is broke, but the last time I checked it was Curtis Jackson that filed for bankruptcy not Floyd Mayweather. So quick to gossip like a Bitch, why don't you tell everybody how you got Herpes from DJ. Where's your memes for that, huh? Or better yet, post on how your Coca-Cola deal wasn’t really 300 million you fucking liar and tell how that spinning G-Unit necklace that somebody got robbed for was fake. Just remember, I was with you everyday and your driver Bruce was my driver also. I know where all your bones are buried, so be easy Curtis Jackson! And by the way, don’t ask to borrow no more money from me.

Mayweather revisited the apparent tension between 50 and his son Marquees, writing that ‘’Uncle Floyd still got you!’’ He also went on to suggest that 50 is not the father of his youngest son, Sire.

Fueling the beef, Mayweather fired off a message that included a picture of his $18 million watch and shot of a gaunt 50 Cent from when the rapper lost more than 50 pounds to appear in the movie ‘All Things Fall Apart.’ 

50 didn’t sit down idly. He hit hard by bringing up Floyd’s history of domestic violence alongside a photo of the boxer wiping away tears.

The G Unit boss continued to throw shade at his former friend claiming he needed a ghostwriter for the Instagram post.

Mayweather served a two-month jail sentence in 2010 for a domestic violence assault of former girlfriend Josie Harris.

Only time will tell what the point of their verbal exchange is all about as we wait for the next volley in this social media smackdown.
