By now you’re probably aware of 50 Cent’s challenge to Floyd Mayweather, calling on the champion boxer to read one page of a Harry Potter book. Fiddy later revised the challenge, allowing Mayweather to only read Dr. Suess’ “The Cat In The Hat”, and do so on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It appears 50 Cent knew exactly what he was doing, and Charlamagne the God played along with it, appearing on Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” and offering up a never-before-heard audio clip of Mayweather attempting to read a two-sentence promo for iHeart Radio:
“I’m Floyd Mayweather and I’ve joined IHeartRadio for the Show Your Stripes movement to support the hiring of vets. Go to ShowYourStripes.org, a website that connects veterans with employees and helps businesses find candidates with the best training.”
Charlamagne read the same prompt both as a point of reference and to clearly drive home the joke. Which, if you ask us, isn’t really all that funny anymore.
