50 Cent Talks Feud w/ French Montana, Claims Floyd Mayweather Is ‘Broke’ & Breaks Down His Issues w/ Gayle King & Oprah Winfrey
50 Cent is maturing before our eyes. He stopped by Ebro In The Morning on HOT97 Thursday (Feb. 13) and opened up about all of the recent press about him.
He briefly spoke on his his ongoing feud with French Montana and denied punching him.
“I am appalled at the idea that people think that I would punch that boy in his face. I would not do nothing like that. That’s it. I’m claiming any punching in the face actions…”
He also opened up about his seemingly never-ending feud with his former BFF, boxer Floyd Mayweather:
“We got issues, okay, he’s still the best fighter out there; until somebody beat him.”
Interestingly enough, he said Floyd Mayweather’s financial status depends on his next fight. 50 Cent said he needs to
“step back in the ring, cause the money gone… It’s fight, get the money, spend the money, fight. It’s been two years… With the lifestyle, that money’s gone, trust me… He’ll be your local host, in the nightclub, because he need that action right now.”
He also said he and “POWER” actress Naturi Naughton are back on good terms after he came for her edges on social media. Still, he’s still justifying his posts.
“We’re good… even though I made little jokes and stuff like [that]. She was upset with me for the jokes and stuff that I put on social media. But that’s usually somebody else making the meme, I’m just taking the meme… Why would I not repost it? Isn’t it marketing my show at the same time? Isn’t it me putting someone on a platform that’s on my show to promote it in a different way? That’s what it is. It just doesn’t feel like I’m saying ‘Tomorrow night on STARZ.’ Everybody knows who Naturi is now. This run has done a lot for her career.”
When it was suggested he give people a warning before he fires off on them on social media he said,
“I don’t have time for all of this. I can’t babysit everybody. You gotta know that my intentions are good.”
Despite being a leader in social media trolling, he revealed a softer side when he said he hopes to have a daughter one day.
“Little girls, I just, in some phases I feel like the little girls are the father’s child. They gotta gravitate to daddy… I can get crazy, I can be tricking, like running around like ‘yeah, that’s my baby.’ I could get her everything her mother wanted. Like, ‘What you say you like?’… Her mom may not necessarily be my wife forever. Fifty-three percent of the people who get married get divorced… You know the stats.”
He does have an older son, Marquise Jackson, 21, who he’s estranged from currently. He said he didn’t have to go through the teenage years with him because they weren’t speaking.
“He drifted before that. Him and his moms were already… but that’s his mom’s child. He’s his mom’s child.”
He said he would be open to having a conversation with him if Marquise Jackson asked.
“I’ll listen. Maybe we’ll go to lunch or dinner somewhere.”
In true 50 Cent fashion he then joked,
“He’ll pay for it. He’s a man now, he’s a grown man.”
He then played coy about his feud with French Montana again and said there’s
“never nothing negative. Positivity my brother.”
As for Snoop Dogg apologizing to Gayle King, 50 Cent said,
“I knew he was gonna have to apologize.”
Snoop Dogg apologized after he called her out of ner hame and threatened her for pressing questions about sexual allegations against late NBA star Kobe Bryant.
He said of Gayle King’s interview,
“Regardless of what network it’s on, they’re gonna take the soundbites that become the most effective. This is what generates interest and pulls you in… The man passes away, you wanna talk about that while… for what? For ratings? I just didn’t think that was cool, that’s all. What they’re feeling now, that backlash? That’s not from what I said, that’s not from what Snoop said, not from Boosie or anyone else… It’s just people are stronger in their absence then they are in their presence. They think it’s okay to do that to Michael Jackson after he passes away… he’s been gone some time. It wasn’t right to do that. What was the goal? To tarnish the person’s legacy, that’s it.”

50 Cent has never backed down from his thoughts of how Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey cover stories about black men accused of sexual assault but have yet to address Harvey Weinstein, who’s currently on trial amid allegations he assaulted several women. 50 Cent added,
“This is more extreme. Even in the memes you see it… I’m gonna be honest with you. I do look at how these situations develop. One person says something and then 20 people say something, and all of them forgot to say something for 10, 20 years? And then it turns into 25 women disappear with no admission of guilt, just $25 million? In the Weinstein situation, it felt like 25 people went away for $25 million and no admission of guilt. That felt like a cash grab, like a money grab to me. Because if it was about the actual movement, at that point would they be after justice or money? That’s just the Weinstein case…”
“What about our president? He told him, just grab him by the p***y. Where his documentary at? A little bit more of that silence right? He’s not an easy victim and his supporters are gonna support him regardless of a documentary. That ain’t the one they looking for. They’re looking for the one where they can actually turn the audience, and they just destroy the person.”
