G-Unit head 50 Cent let loose some open-ended questions to his 8.1 million Twitter followers over the weekend, seemingly taking shots at a few of his estranged comrades.
Although Fif did not name-drop anyone specific, he did offer up a few hints at ex-business associates.
"You ever help someone make money then they turn around when it's gone and blame you for still having some?Smsaudio," Fif tweeted Saturday (November 24).
"You ever told a fool don't let her have that baby.then he go tell the girl 50 said tell you get rid of it but i love you SMSaudio"
"Ever herd someone take credit for starting g-unit that can't sign one act that's hot ?SMSaudio" (50 Cent's Twitter)
Coincidentally, G-Unit's Tony Yayo took credit for putting together the rap crew in August.
"Who started Gunit me that's who.," he tweeted August 12th.
"Why would I blow shots at 50 the media want see Gunit fail so bad we won to much in front of n*ggas everybody running with our format." (Tony Yayo's Twitter)
Over the summer, 50 reacted to former Unit member Young Buck running into legal woes after going bankrupt and starting an 18-month jail sentence.
"I think it's unfortunate. I don't wish that on nobody, having to sit in the joint. But I don't know how to respond in a nice way to blatant disrespect that was offered. I'm the kind of person that I don't let go of things easy, I'll be honest with you. If I'm the driving force behind why the situation is what it is, I'll accept it. But when I can't see what I've done to offer it, then I think that that was just a plan that didn't go right. If it went the way they wanted it to, there would still be no white flag. That goes across the board...even with my personal relationships with women. It's always people looking for what they want out of it." (XXL Mag)
Last week, the platinum-selling rap star officially confirmed his split with estranged friend/boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, Jr.'s The Money Team Promotions.
Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and attorney Leon Margules, who were at the meeting, promised to provide the commission with what it still wanted within a week -- two years worth of Jackson's income tax returns, a financial statement listing the fighters SMS has under contract and a letter stating that the assets that had been in TMT's name are now in SMS's name. During questioning from the commission, Jackson said that he and Mayweather had agreed to go into the promotional business together but "as he came out of incarceration (on Aug. 3 after two months in county jail in Las Vegas) he decided he wanted to do things differently, but I had already invested $1.5 million in acquiring fighters and I would like to move forward." Jackson said there was no written agreement between him and Mayweather regarding the company. (ESPN)
