G-Unit head 50 Cent is reportedly headed out to Las Vegas, Nevada to take part in the festivities surrounding this weekend’s Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao fight.
According to reports, Fif is going to perform tomorrow night (May 1) in Sin City.
Club sources tell TMZ … the rapper is getting half-a-million bucks Friday night for throwing down rhymes at Drai’s. Fact is, 50 may be hedging his bets. You may recall … he’s put $1.6 mil on the line, betting Floyd Mayweather will put Manny Pacquiao in his place. And we’re told he also made a deal with Effen Vodka to make around $500k for a show 2 weeks later at Pool After Dark in Atlantic City. (TMZ)
Last week, 50 revealed his issues with Mayweather tended to stem from minor arguments and misunderstandings.
“We’ve been good. My younger brother happens to be the best fighter in the world. He can make $200 million in 36 minutes. How do you tell him what to do? You don’t,” 50 said in an interview. “Sometimes he’s not right. You’ll tell him, ‘You’re not right.’ Because everyone else is codependent, he can’t agree with you. Then you have that argument until he starts to look at it and goes, ‘Alright. He was right.’” (MTV)
50 revealed an unexpected reunion picture of himself alongside Floyd onto Instagram last Thursday (April 23).
Back in September, 50 talked about his distanced relationship from Floyd.
“It’s not like I want to hurt him,” Fif explained when asked how serious his beef with Floyd is. “I like him because he thinks he can do anything. He’s like my younger brother. Do or say anything you want at any point. He’ll go and say he slept with T.I.‘s woman and then say, ‘Oh, uh, I ain’t say that.’ … When it’s the point you want to make it most exciting, that’s his moment for him to say that and then later he says, ‘Ah, nah. I didn’t say that.’ I knew [he couldn’t read] because he’ll have a hard time, he’ll pass it. Like, he’ll give [something to read] to Miss Jackson or someone else when he takes a look at it.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
