”He’s Been A Part of the Playlist”
Boxing fans have grown accustomed to rapper 50 Cent hanging out with champ Floyd Mayweather in the ring, but during Mayweather’s last fight, pop star Justin Bieber and rapper Lil Wayne were also in the ring. Weezy’s presence raised some eyebrows considering his history of rivalry with 50, but 50 Cent explained why both stars being alongside he and Floyd makes sense.
“Floyd has a huge passion for music that people don’t know about,” 50 explained. “It’s a big part of what makes him comfortable and takes his mind off of how hard he has to work to stay being the #1 fighter in the world. With Wayne’s music momentum, he’s a part of that; he’s been a part of the playlist, so it’s cool.”
“The pictures, when I’m not paying attention, they take some really weird facial expressions of me,” he said of his appearing angry in the pics with Floyd and Weezy. “I’m like, ‘What the f— was I thinking at that point?’ It’s nothing there to make me feel uncomfortable.”
