Remind me never to imply that 50 Cent is irrelevant. Allegedly, a comment that didn’t even mention Fiddy by name is the reason the rapper issued that reading challenge to Floyd Mayweather Jr. And now that it’s out there, apparently it’s the only thing the internet cares about.
Power 105, an urban radio station out of NYC, played on their Breakfast Club, an audio recording of Money Mayweather attempting to read a radio announcement for them about some website for veterans.

Lets get back to mocking someone who can’t beat us all up.
