Floyd Mayweather instagram post about Manny Pacquiao being compared to him
Coming Soon Floyd Mayweather, renowned former boxer and current boxing promoter, was recently featured in the news again after having his $1.7 mil Bugatti sold to rap superstar Lil Uzi Vert. Whether the two celebrities are friends or not is a question that is difficult to answer, as this is the only public dealing that the two have had between them, and it wasn’t even between the two of them personally. The rapper actually went through car broker RD Whittington, and even spent an additional $20K on having the sexy car rush-delivered from LA to NYC, where the rapper’s 25th birthday party was being held.
This isn’t the first time the powerhouse sports star has had interactions with the rap world. Back in February, rapper T.I. released a diss track about Mayweather, calling out the rapper for shopping at Gucci, despite the company dealing with public backlash regarding a jumper that was said to prominently feature blackface. The former boxer replied to said allegations that he’s “not no follower,” and would continue to do “what the f*** I wanna do.” Whether or not the boxer was aware of the public outcry against the designer brand is unclear, but what is clear is that the rap community at the time wasn’t too happy with how he was interacting with social activism.
