They say prison can change a man, and it sounds like a stint behind bars changed Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Even though 50 Cent was there when his pal was released from prison last month, he confirmed that not everything is great between them.
“[The issues between us] really comes from … everybody around him is waiting on the next time he feels generous. And I have a lot [of money], so I don’t wait for nobody,” 50 told the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show.” “I’ll go do what I gotta do. I don’t have to sit around and wait for the next time he feels like giving somebody something.”
50 squashed the rumor that they had beef over girls. But he does believe Mayweather changed during his time in prison.
“Me and Floyd is always gonna be cool. He is different. [There's been] a different side of Floyd coming out of the pen. That’s all.”
We already knew that Mayweather was moody compared to the more easy-going 50 Cent, so it seems like that is why there is some distance between them. And when 50 referred to waiting for Floyd to give somebody something, I’m guessing he’s referring to their business ventures.
50 Cent started a boxing promotional company in July and implied that Mayweather would be fighting for his company, not Golden Boy Promotions. Maybe Mayweather didn’t like 50 saying that, so he’s holding out on his buddy and delaying their plans. That’s just a guess about what’s happening between them, because we know something is going on.
