Undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has taken his feud with G-Unit head 50 Cent to another level after involving slain teenager Mike Brown‘s family into their rift.
Instead of entertaining a read challenge from 50, Mayweather suggested the Unit leader to use his money toward helping the Missouri teen’s relatives.
“I was thinking of something, you know, when you asked me about 50 Cent. If you want to donate money, donate money to the Mike Brown family,” Mayweather said. “I shouldn’t stop you. Our company, me and Leonard [Ellerbee], we have been donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to different organizations for years without any media, without getting credit. … The best thing for 50 Cent to do, and there are no hard feelings, is to give that $750,000 to Mike Brown’s family.” (Yahoo!

When asked about Fif’s challenge by a fan, Mayweather playfully responded a few days ago.
“That’s all he challenged me?” Mayweather told the fan when asked about the $750,000 challenge. “He gotta raise the stakes. Let him know. Do he still make music? I ain’t heard him in a while.” (Showtime All-Access)
50 jumped onto his Instagram page last week and jabbed Mayweather with an Instagram post poking fun at his reading/writing skills.
“Deer Tiny, I just dropen yu a line, to let yu no I lub yu berry much. Fuk T. eye, he don Lub yu like I du! Senseerly Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather,” a photo read on 50’s page. The rap star captioned the image with: “@floydmayweather I love you like a brother. Call fanny, and tawana your sister’s love your crazy ass.check on Devon you are forgetting the people who matter boy. If you want to fight I’ll be in Vegas next week.#SMSaudio” (50 Cent’s Instagram)
Fif took to his social media page to expose Mayweather’s reading ability in August.
“This is a special challenge for you, Floyd!” 50 Cent says in the clip. “If you can read one full page of a Harry Potter book, I’ll give $750,000 to whatever charitable organization you want to.” Standing on a picturesque patio over a green backyard with a sparkling pool, the “Animal Ambition” performer then grabs his bucket of ice water and enthusiastically tosses it to the side.
