During a recent appearance on Power 106, rapper turned boxing promoter Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson revealed that his beef with undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather is 100% real, despite the fact that he himself claimed that it was fake. "No, but I know how to stop the energy when I don't like the way it feels," he responded when asked point blank if their war of words on Twitter was just a joke. The revelation contradicts Jackson's previous assertion that he allegedly started the beef at the request of Mayweather.
Earlier this month, after a weekend of trading harsh words with one another on Twitter, Jackson would call a cease fire by claiming Mayweather had asked him to act like they were fighting becasue "no one was paying any attention after his 60 days." He would claim that Mayweather was simply wanting some attention, so he decided to use Twitter as a means to create "shock value".
Fast forward to today and you have Jackson now singing a different tune, claiming that the animosity truly does exists, and money is at the root of it. So in other words, yesterday he was lying, today he's telling the truth. Remind you of anyone? "When you gonna give me the money," Jackson commenteed on Power 106, explaining that he put up the money to get Gamboa out of his deal with Top Rank with the expectation that Mayweather would pay for half. "When is he going to say he wants to give me the other half, or am I going to have to ask him for it," he continued. Check out the video below to see Jackson explain his side of the story:
