Yesterday 50 Cent targeted a new victim in his social media pressure campaign to get back money owed to him. 50 says Power castmate Rotimi, who plays character Andre Coleman on the show, owes him a whopping $300,000. Listen to how 50 trolled Rotimi on Instagram…

Rotimi used to be a G-Unit artist, but another record company, the real-life Empire Records, actually bought Rotimi out of his contract with G-Unit and he signed a distribution deal, thus making Rotimi his own boss. The monies between the two men dealt with these business transactions, they don’t appear to be personal, although that’s how 50 Cent makes it sound on his Instagram platform. Cut to this week after Rotimi announced his new album Walk With Me was #1 on the R&B charts, and all of a sudden, 50 Cent had guns blazing after Rotimi, seemingly trying to knock him down a peg.

Could 50 Cent just be jealous that another record company was able to make Rotimi #1 while his G-Unit couldn’t get the job done? After all, success should have been easy, considering Rotimi is talented, attractive, and already a popular actor on a successful TV show.

Still, it seems Rotimi has no hard feelings, and TMZ just broke the news that he paid 50 Cent $100k on his outstanding balance. Here’s what 50 Cent just posted…

As you can see, the TMZ crew brought up the possibility of the “In Da Club” rapper having sour grapes seeing Rotimi now being very successful, but for his part, this is what 50 had to say…

“I have no problem with @Rotimi in fact I wish him and his family the best God bless. POSITIVE VIBES”

To be real, Rotimi kind of has no play in this situation but to be nice to 50 Cent even though he’s just been embarrassed. 50 Cent is not only a castmate on Power, but also the show’s most notable producer – he could have Rotimi axed at anytime. And, he’s already proven his ability to screw with Rotimi’s new distribution deal, as played out in the circumstance at hand.

It’ll be interesting to see if 50 puts anymore pressure on the young actor/singer for money in the future. We’ll be watching.

Until the next time it drips…
