A lot of times, you see a lot of these rap artists, they rap about certain things, but I really live it. Every home that I have is paid for, every car that I have is paid for, and I am a hundred-million-dollar man. I mean, this is the truth; it’s not a lie. I mean, if these guys claim that they’re doing certain numbers and certain units, we’ll see.”
Without name dropping the three rappers, his comments still managed to upset his longtime nemesis and former friend, prompting Curtis Jackson to challenge him to a reading challenge. If Mayweather managed to read a full Harry Potter page aloud, Jackson would donate $750k to a charity of the boxer’s choice.
However a day later, the undefeated champ hadn’t responded, so Power 105.1 released old audio of the boxer’s unedited drops for the station.

If you missed Mayweather’s fail this week, flip the page, and laugh a little.
