50 Cent is now demanding money from someone else other than Teairra Mari.
the 43-year-old rap mogul has now set his sights on Rotimi. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday morning, 50 called out his “Power” co-star, claiming he owes him an “outstanding balance of $300,000.”
Rotimi responded, saying he “doesn’t owe 50 money” and that his recent success may have inspired 50’s demands. “The thing is, my record No. 1, I just bought a crib, I’m taking care of my family,” he said. “Why now? Why wait ’til Walk With Me is No. 1 on the R&B charts? … I don’t owe you a brick.”
50 Cent, of course, had a clap back for him, adding his own commentary to Rotimi’s video. “You do owe me money! You independent now,” he said. “That’s right, you owe me $300,000. You No. 1, now you could pay me my money.”
Rotimi was previously signed to 50’s G-Unit Records, but now has a deal with EMPIRE, where he released his latest EP Walk With Me on Friday.
