50 Cent: Ellerbe a Bum, Floyd Jr. a Punk - Fight Gamboa!

By Edward Chaykovsky

The war of words continues. Now rapper 50 Cent has jabbed back at Leonard Ellerbe, the adviser to Floyd Mayweather Jr., and the rapper offered up a $20 million dollar bonus for Mayweather to fight Yuriorkis Gamboa.

Two days ago, 50 Cent officially announced his departure from the "The Money Team" - a phrase that Mayweather coined for his close friends and associates. 50 Cent was under the impression that Mayweather would become his partner in a brand new promotional company, TMT Promotions.

Mayweather backed away from TMT and continued to work with his existing partners, Golden Boy Promotions and adviser Al Haymon. 50 Cent started a new company, SMS Promotions. The SMS roster includes Gamboa, Billy Dib and Andre Dirrell.

"TMT is over. The money team is no longer a team. So it's SMS Promotions....that's it, that's all. I'm no longer a part or down with TMT Promotions. If anyone wants a Money Team jacket, I'm selling mine for a dollar. The nap back hat comes with it. That's a fair price. I moved the fighters to SMS Promotions cause the other half of 'the money team' didn't put up their money," 50 Cent wrote on his social network accounts.

Ellerbe, during an interview with Ben Thompson of fighthype.com, answered back.

"In my opinion, I'm sure Top Rank is very, very happy and laughing their asses off to be doing business with SMG Promotions [referring to SMS Promotions]. They got paid a whole bunch of money to release the fighter [Gamboa to 50 Cent], they get to keep the money, and still get to use the fighter [on the Pacquiao-Marquez card]. Way to go SMG. And Billy Dib is a world champion and a very nice guy, but I'm sure he didn't sign up with SMG to be the opponent for, no disrespect, an unrated prospect on somebody else's show. But we wish them nothing but the best in their new promotional venture," Ellerbe said.

50 shot back at Ellerbe, and dared Mayweather to fight Gamboa.

"Gamboa wants to fight Floyd. I will put up a extra 20 million for the winner. [Gamboa] don't like it that Floyd pulled out [from the TMT Promotions venture]. Ellerbe, you a broke bum. Gamboa wants to fight, tell [Floyd to] lace up. Gamboa is the truth...Floyd knows that....stop tricking and fight. Gamboa moving up in weight Floyd. You should have known not to go against me punk. I can't hang out with Floyd no more...I'm tired of running from Manny Pacquiao," the rapper wrote on the social networks.

[QUOTE=stefl14;12662741]Come on man. Each to their own but Pac is way overrated due to him being dead. I don't think Pac was that versatile tbh, he never dropped anything that lyrically impressive to me. But even if he was versatile…

[QUOTE=radioraheem;12662683]None of the guys you mentioned were better lyricists to me. Pac was the most complete artist, very, very versatile. He could do it all. More than half the artists on your list are VERY one-dimensional. Meaning they only skilled…
