50 Cent parties in Atlantic City
50 Cent at Scores
50 Cent doesn’t want to party anywhere near his rival Floyd Mayweather.
The “In Da Club” rapper was the toast of the town in Atlantic City this weekend, selling partygoers on his new $350-per-bottle Le Chemin du Roi brand champagne while hitting the club scene — though not all the clubs.
“On Friday as part of the activities, they went to Ivan Kane’s Royal Jelly Burlesque,” said a source at the Ocean Resort Casino, who estimated the rapper’s entourage at the hotel’s hot spot that consisted of 40 people.
“He was surrounded by beautiful women, having a good time, and at some point decided he wanted to go to a strip club,” according to that source, who said the burlesque joint’s deejay played 50 Cent tunes “Disco Inferno” and ‘What Up Gangsta?”
A fleet of Cadillac Escalades lined up outside the Ocean Resort Casino to whisk Fitty and his 40-man crew to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, which hosts the Scores Atlantic City strip club.

That’s when, according to the source, someone in Fitty’s crew googled the club and saw it was promoting an event next weekend featuring Mayweather.

“Fitty stopped dead in his tracks, said ‘No way, not going,” and headed back to his hotel room around 2:30 a.m.
The rest of his crew tried unsuccessfully to sway the “Power” producer to come along, and then went ahead without him.
“There were waiting Escalades,” that source reasoned.
50 Cent’s rivalry with Mayweather dates back to 2014 when the two first started jabbing each other on social media.
Temperatures have run high with Mayweather questioning 50 Cent’s finances and parenting skills, while the rapper hit back claiming the boxer was illiterate. Things had slowed down in recent months, until Mayweather posted an Instagram picture of an $18 million watch he’d purchased and Fitty responded by implying he was dumb for buying it.
It’s Mayweather’s turn to take over Atlantic City on Friday when he hosts a party for P-Reala Music at Scores. He also has a reservation for Robert’s Steakhouse, which is walking distance from the strip club.
