Controversial rapper 50 Cent is at it again. The entrepreneur shared in-your-face poses of himself and bad boy boxer Floyd Mayweather swimming in wads of cash, and if that weren’t enough, he also commented on the arrival of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby.
The rapper, who tweeted pics of himself stuffing the trunk of his $500k Lamborghini Murcielago with $2 million in cold cash (pictured), has decided to flaunt his wealth again. The four pictures that were posted on 50 Cent’s Twitter account depict him literally bogged down with stacks of cash.
In two of the poses, Mayweather, who is also known for his braggadocious ways, joined the entertainer in placing bundles of money down the length of his arms, into his tee and into his baseball cap.
The 36-year-old mogul is notorious for being ostentatious, and some might even say that his obnoxious display of wealth makes one throw up a little. Take, for example, one of 50 Cent’s lavish homes. In 2003, he purchased a 50,000-square-foot home in Farmington, Conn., complete with a nightclub, 35 bathrooms, 18 bedrooms, 4 kitchens, an elevator, movie theater, billiard room, five jacuzzis and a locker room. He also owns outrageously expensive cars like a Ferrari FXX, with a price tag that is close to 1 million, iced-out jewelry and designer duds, flaunting his $250-million status without discretion.
It’s no secret that 50 and Jay-Z have been rivals and now the ongoing feud has been reignited with the rapper’s latest antic. 50 Cent mocked Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s new baby girl, Blue Ivy, with pearl-clutching images (pictured) and captions of the child on Twitter:
