Let the war of words begin!
Rappers 50 Cent and Rick Ross found themselves in an Instagram war over the weekend. And from what we can tell, it may have all started over a unique T-shirt.
It began Friday when 50 Cent allegedly posted a photo of a shirt that featured Ross’ tattooed torso as the design on sale for $2.95.
While the post has since been deleted, Ross was able to spot it and responded on Twitter writing, “Forced into #BANKRUPTCY now the Donkey @50cent WORKING 4 #MMG Merch co. selling T’s for 2.95 on the #BLACKMARKET haaa!”
Back in July, 50 Cent told E! News he was “taking the precautions that any other good businessperson would take” after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Instead of remaining quiet, however, the rapper came back on Instagram with a few more posts directed towards Ross. He allegedly posted a photo of the 39-year-old as a correctional officer and took aim at his engagement to Lira Galore.
“Ok this is a good movie: A correctional officer who raps like a drug dealer till he believes it. Then kidnaps and beats his grounds keeper as his record sales dwindle to nothing,” he wrote before deleting the post. “So he marries a 22 year old stripper his crew already ran threw to make sure someone will visit him. LMAO. Wait I want to buy the movie rights.”
50 Cent then reportedly addressed Ross for not supporting Meek Mill when he was feuding with Drake over a single.
Ultimately, Ross decided to respond by proving how well he is doing financially. In an Instagram posted Saturday morning, the rapper wrote, “@50Cent your son applied to be a intern at @untouchablemmg and it Will be processed. As you well know I got 40 cars/200 acres and a mower w/ his name on it. #ImWhatYouUsedToBe #BLACKMARKET Dec. 4.”
He added on Twitter, “Haaa I been waiting on @50cent to come c me for years now..size uniform you and Marquise wear boi? The countdown has begun…#BLACKMARKET.”
Safe to say this feud isn’t done just yet.
