New York rapper 50 Cent is paying the ultimate respect. The hip-hop veteran has come forward to remember the life of late Floyd Mayweather Jr. boxing trainer Roger Mayweather.
On Tuesday, Fif hit up Instagram and shared a pic of himself alongside Roger. He also used a couple of dove emojis to acknowledge Mayweather’s death.
“R.I.P Uncle Rodger. God bless.”
According to reports, Mayweather died at the age of 58. He also made a name for himself with his legendary training with his undefeated boxing nephew.

Wait, There’s More
The death comes just days after cops found Floyd’s ex-girlfriend Josie Harris‘ dead body at her home in Valencia, California.
Law enforcement sources tell us … officials were called to the home around 9:30 PM and when they arrived, they found 40-year-old Harris unresponsive in her car. She was pronounced dead at the scene. We’re told there does not appear to be any foul play and the case is being treated as a death investigation as opposed to a homicide probe. (TMZ)
Before You Go
Dating back to the mid-90’s, Josie Harris and Mayweather reportedly had an abusive relationship together. Floyd ultimately served time behind bars on a domestic violence conviction.
Over the course of their rocky relationship, which began in 1995, Harris claimed that she suffered repeated abuse at the hands of her boxer beau. Mayweather in 2010 was convicted for attacking his former girlfriend and served two months behind bars for the domestic violence incident. He allegedly entered her Vegas home in September of that year, pulled her to floor by her hair and started to beat her, according to USA Today. The attack ended only after their oldest child, Koraun, managed to sneak out of the house and get help. (New York Daily News)
