50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather were guests on 106 & Park yesterday (November 2).
Floyd talked about what he does to stay in shape after a fight, being able to relate to 50's new book, Playground, because he was a bully himself in school and being ready to fight Manny Pacquiao.
"We're looking for Pacquiao, we want Manny to take the test. We just wanna give the fans and the people around the world what they wanna see," Floyd said before clarifying that he's never accused the Filipino champ of taking performance enhancing drugs. "I never said Pacquiao was on anything. It's just that it's not natural for any athlete to come from 106 [pounds] all the way to 154 all natural and compete with the best fighters."
After a commercial break, 50 Cent was introduced. The first question Rocsi asked was about his new braids. Fif explained that he grew them for a movie role where he plays a “1980s-era pimp.”
"Yeah, It's for Frozen Ground. It's for the movie, y'all wanna get a close up?" he asked before taking off his blue New York Yankees cap.
That conversation segued into what inspired the G-Unit boss to write Playground.
He explained that it stemmed from a conversation he had with his son, who knew someone that was being bullied in school. It brought back memories of what it was like for him growing up as an overweight kid who turned to bullying as a defense mechanism.
50 also discusses his Street King energy drink and his plans to feed a billion kids in need.
