50 Cent & Lil Wayne linkup during All-Star weekend.

50 Cent & Lil Wayne Trash Talk Each Other While Coaching NBA All-Star Celebrity Game

50 Cent and Lil Wayne could be seen trash talking each other while they coached the NBA All-Star celebrity game.

50 was an assistant coach for Shannon Sharpe’s team which included the likes of Kai Cenat, SiR and NFL player Micah Parsons, while Weezy helped out Stephen A. Smith’s team whose lineup boasted Jennifer Hudson, AJ McLean and Super Bowl winner Mercole Hardman.

Speaking on the broadcast, the two rap legends discussed the talent on their teams and threw in some friendly trash talk.

After 50 lamented the perceived lack of quality on his roster, Weezy said: “I’m listening to you crying about my team.”

50 then responded by saying: “You guys are cheaters, man,” taking issue with the fact that Wayne’s team had former NBA champion Metta Sandiford-Artest and WNBA star Natasha Cloud.

Fif, whose own team had WNBA player Jewell Loyd, also admitted to saying “inappropriate things” to his team to get them pumped up for the game, which must have worked as they triumphed 100-91.

The All-Star Celebrity Game, which has been an annual fixture since 2003, became embroiled in controversy after it was claimed that Chris Brown was uninvited from the event.

The R&B singer claimed that Ruffles, the sponsor of the celebrity contest, prevented him from playing in the game.

He wrote on Instagram: “I was asked by the NBA to play in the all star game this year! Only for them to call later and say they couldn’t do IT because of their sponsors like RUFFLES.

“At this point I’m sick of people bothering me and I’m tired of living in the fucking past. I POSTED THE EMAILS SO YALL COULD SEE. The NBA still was tryna get me to come and sit court side…NOT FUCKING HAPPENING.”

Brown also shared screenshots of emails where it appeared the controversial singer had been approved to play on Lil Wayne’s team.

Ruffles denied Brown’s claims in a statement to HipHopDX, saying: “Ruffles sponsored last night’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, however Ruffles did not have any involvement in, nor visibility to, any player decisions or celebrity invite discussions.”

Brown later refuted the statement from the snack manufacturer: “I guess yall tryna save face now! STAND ON BUSINESS. Don’t try to make it look like I’m trippin. YOU AND THE NBA representatives know exactly what yall doin!”

He added: “I HAVE NO REASON TO LIE. YALL KNOW I DONT CHASE CLOUT ! The only reason they responded is because of all the team breezy fans flooding they shit. Stop fucking playing wit me! SEE HOW FAKE THIS SHIT IS… COWARDS!! YALL KNOW DAMN WELL I AINT LYING BECAUSE I NEVER BE ON THIY TYPE OF TIME. These bitches (@ruffles) Tryna save face!”
