50 Cent just took his beef with MMA star Conor McGregor to the next level. The bad news is that it’s entirely on social media so they’ll probably never duke it out in person. The good news is that the barbs keep getting sharper.
It started when 50 Cent bet on Mayweather beating McGregor in their 2017 fight, which the Irishman didn’t take too kindly to. He called him a “bitch” and followed it up later with a passive aggressive Instagram post.
“Someone tag 50cent in this for me,” McGregor wrote. “He blocked me on this the mad 50 year old instagram blocker. Ahh don’t block me 50 kid, I still like some of your songs. The older ones hahah King bless you all!”
Making deals and TAKING deals! Kings recognise Kings! Congrats to @jayz on his number 1 takeover from @diddy in the highest paid Forbes list. What a take-over! Diddy hasn’t been number 2 in so long. Until now. Zoom into that two tone with the powder blue on my wrist mate. You might see 1st place again. I am also really interested to see this years Forbes highest paid athletes list. I have now surpassed @cristiano Ronaldo as I told him I would in 2016. Floyd as a retired fighter that makes ZERO substantial revenue outside of them ropes is not on the list, and in the long game, is already dead. Mixed Martial Arts is a glorious game, Floyd. You are going to love it hahaha Someone tag 50cent in this for me. He blocked me on this the mad 50 year old instagram blocker. Ahh don’t block me 50 kid, I still like some of your songs. The older ones hahah King bless you all! @burgerking
But 50 Cent hit back much harder in an Instagram video Tuesday, which has since been deleted.
“They love ’em some McGregor,” he said. “They get their haircut like McGregor. All that sh*t. Soon as they get that first big check they gone leave their motherf*cking wife and kids like McGregor and sh*t.”
Of course, 50 Cent is referencing the allegations that McGregor had an affair with singer Rita Ora in December 2017, which pretty much set the internet on fire.

McGregor is still engaged to his fiancé and denied the cheating allegations but it’s really not a good look. And 50 Cent proved he’s not afraid of hitting below the belt. This feud is probably far from being over.
