A slew of people allegedly owes 50 Cent money, including Biz Markie, who recently settled his debt with the rapper, using food stamps.
According to 50 Cent, celebrities such as Teairra Mari, Bow Wow, and Rotimi has reportedly owed the rapper and entrepreneur money within the last few years.
Markie, a hip-hop legend known for beatboxing, is now the latest public figure to allegedly owe 50 Cent money, and he paid the rapper and Power star back with physical food stamps that circulated in the ’90s. Today, most states issue food stamps via an electronic card.
Markie may now be known for more than just beatboxing, he might now be known for pulling the trolling move of the century.
“I ran into Biz Markie backstage in Minnesota,” 50 wrote as a caption on Instagram to accompany a picture of Biz Markie giving the rapper physical food stamps. “I said Biz I always loved ya music and all that but I need that money you owe me. LOL he had food stamps.”
“Nobody beats the Biz,” 50 Cent continued in the comment section. Biz Markie shared a different but similar photo on his Instagram page. “I PAID #50cent THE MONEY I OWED HIM,” he wrote.
