50 Cent has clashed with Irish boxer/MMA fighter Conor McGregor on social media.
The pair have exchanged heated words in the past, with McGregor previously labelling the rapper a “bitch” before his fight with Floyd Mayweather last year.
Now, McGregor has appeared to reignite the beef by calling 50 Cent a “50 year old Instagram blocker”, claiming that the rapper blocked him on the social media platform.
“Ahh don’t block me 50 kid,” McGregor wrote in a post. “I still like some of your songs. The older ones hahah”.

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
The rapper also posted another video in which he called McGregor “talented for a white boy”, arguing that Rocky was only made so viewers could finally see white fighters triumph against their black counterparts.

The rapper filed new documents in a bankruptcy case, admitting that “recent media reports have falsely stated” his Bitcoin fortune and that he has “never owned, and does not own, a bitcoin account or any bitcoins, and to the best of his knowledge, none of his companies had a bitcoin account from 2014 to the present.”
“When I first became aware of the press reports on this matter, I made social media posts stating that ‘I forgot I did that’ because I had in fact forgotten that I was one of the first recording artists to accept bitcoin for online transactions,” the rapper wrote in the documents.
“I did not publicly deny the reports that I held bitcoins because the press coverage was favourable and suggested that I had made millions of dollars as a result of my good business decision to accept bitcoin payments.”
