White recounts a meeting with 50 Cent in New York:
I was at dinner in New York for 205, and we bumped into each other…When we were leaving he said to me, ‘When’s your boy going to fight Floyd?” and I said “My boy? Who are you talking about, Conor? Floyd doesn’t want to fight Conor.’ And he said, ‘He does. He’s dead serious about it.’ And I said, ‘I don’t know man. Call Floyd and see what’s going on’. So that’s how the whole thing got started up again…Look how long it took [Mayweather-Pacquiao] to get that done and they’re both in the same sport. I highly doubt this fight will ever happen.
A New York City jury orders 50 Cent to pay an additional $2 million in punitive damages for posting a sex tape of Leviston online. This payment is in addition to the $5 million that the jury previously found he should pay. His attorney:
Although we appreciate the jury’s service, we are disappointed in the result. Our client intends to file post-verdict, pre-judgment motions which we believe should reduce the size of the award. Ultimately, the fate of any obligation to pay a final judgment will be determined by the bankruptcy court,

50 Cent calls AT&T “racist” in posts on his widely-followed Twitter and Instagram accounts. He says AT&T wants to keep “urban friendly” programming off its lineup.
Man Im sorry I have to say this, but AT&T is racist they have had issues in the past and here we go again. 500,000 homes will not be able to view the next episode of POWER…When this was happening they were saying they had the STARZ and other networks that created programming targeting multiple ethnicity’s now I guess (THERE NOT F–KING WITH N—-S).SMH…Change your cable package from AT&T to anything else. It’s 2015 and these people are still racist. They are dropping all channels that are considered urban friendly.
Starz and their paid talent can spin up whatever they like, but the bottom line is we’re NOT going to negotiate a deal that is bad for customers. In these negotiations, our customers are all that matter to us.

In an interview with King on On Larry King Now 50 Cent responds to media criticism:
I’ve seen so many things said about me in social networking at points. When you don’t anticipate it it lands a little harder on you. This I can telegraph, I can see what’s gonna come from people when they see this in advance. It’s a move that’s necessary for me to make at this point so I didn’t allow myself to create that big red/white bullseye on my back when I become the person that people consistently come to.

A jury orders the rapper to pay $5 million to Leviston for allegedly posting a video of her and her boyfriend online without their permission. The video supposedly features a wig-wearing 50 Cent as a commentator named Pimpin’ Curly who makes explicit remarks about Leviston and calling her a porn star. The star’s attorney:
[We are] disappointed in the verdict but very appreciative of the service of the jury and the court.
50 Cent gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses how he was a better drug dealer, why time is precious, and his different image.
The guy that has on athletic inspired clothing might be someone that you could point to and say, “That’s hip-hop.” The baseball hat, the different things, the do-rag, I suppose could be something you would identify with me as an artist. When you start to dress with more casual clothing or more professional clothing, like a suit, people start wondering. The jewelry I think comes from not having. From not having, you aspire to live life on the highest level possible. When you start off not even being able to fantasize about buying your own car, you buy one as soon as you’re able to.
