G-Unit leader 50 Cent and boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. are in Indianapolis, the site for Super Bowl XLVI, and are making weekend headlines for stirring up a ruckus Saturday (February 4).
A detailed account of Fif and Floyd's late night antics hit the Internet early Sunday.
The WBC welterweight champion was repeatedly driven on a loop through the heart of the city, along with 50 Cent and members of his entourage, in a large bus decked out with Mayweather body paint and depicting his image and Twitter handle. It was when the bus stopped for Mayweather to lean through an open window and interact with fans that things began to get chaotic, with the oversize vehicle blocking traffic and generating extra headaches for the police. By the time ThePostGame.com arrived on the scene, the bus was at the corner of Main and Meridian, right in the center of the city. 50 Cent also engaged with fans and signed a handful of autographs.

A local resident also provided details on the excitement Fif and Floyd created.
"Every time it stopped, the traffic would immediately begin to back up because cars couldn't get around," said onlooker Gregg Kiesler, 23, from Indianapolis. "For the most part Mayweather stayed well inside, but a couple of times he leaned out and spoke with the fans. It didn't take long for the cars to be backed up in every direction and there were times when the roads were packed in every direction and no one could move." (The Post Game)
Last month, 50 predicted the New York Giants would defeat the New Englad Patriots.
"I'm up 500,000 off the last one. f*ck it ill bet it back Ill put a 1,000,000 on my G MEN. STUNNER you got the # hit me if you want it.," he tweeted.
"I know what he said fool RT @AbuArije: @BIRDMAN5STAR said 5 @50cent not 1 million"
"I just check the spread Hold up the M casino in vegas said patriots-3 I'm have to bet over there unless STUNNTER giving up points. Get at me" (50 Cent's Twitter)
