Hip-hop heavyweight 50 Cent has time and again courted controversies with his cheesy remarks but in the latest, he might have crossed the line. The rap icon took a dig at Michael K. Williams only a few hours after he was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment on Monday, September 6.

The ‘Candy Shop’ hitmaker took to his Instagram account with more than 20 million followers and shared a screengrab from an article of the New York Post talking about the actor dying from a suspected drug overdose. The award-winning rapper posted an insensitive caption on Williams’ death with an intention to promote his popular TV series ‘Power Book III: Raising Kanan.’ This, of course, did not go down well with the social media users as they labeled him a piece of garbage. 50 Cent later deleted the screenshot only to share another derogatory post on the actor which was also deleted later. For the unversed, 50 Cent and late Williams had beef in 2018, the reason why the hip-hop artist posted these inconsiderate posts.

50 Cent uses Michael K Williams’ death to promote own show

The New York Post article that was shared by 50 Cent revealed how the actor apparently died from a drug overdose and speaking on similar lines, he captioned the post as, “Damn if you didn’t see Raising Kanan check it out. That fentanyl is no joke, killing the clientele. RIP michael k. williams.” The 46-year-old hip-hop artist soon received flak as he ended up deleting the post. Despite catching heat, 50 Cent shared another post where he shared a screenshot of an article that spoke about their 2018 beef. He then captioned the post as, “Don’t ever try to understand me I’m different” adding, “I don’t do all the fake love shit.” The second post was too deleted later.

The two locked horns in 2018 after 50 claimed that music executive James Rosemond, Jr., a.k.a. Jimmy Henchman, was assaulted while in prison serving his life sentence after being found guilty of a murder-for-hire plot against G-Unit affiliate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher. Reverting to the same, the actor had then posted an Instagram video saying the rapper’s claims were “completely false” without taking his name. This angered the rapper as he then ended up sharing a series of posts while also reminding of a gay sex scene involving the actor’s character from ‘The Wire.’
