The money challenge has taken social media by storm this past week. Rappers from Soulja Boy to 50 Cent took to Instagram posting photos of themselves spreading their racks on the ground, spelling out a plethora of different messages.
On Tuesday (January 25), LL COOL J shared a photo of himself to Twitter in what looks to be from a magazine. In the photo, a young LL is laying shirtless next to his name spelled out in ice cubes. The text above the photo read, “I was the coolest – literally – spelling my name in ice cubes.” Although he did not quite do the money challenge, he got the point across, captioning the post, “Been there.”
On Sunday (January 23), 50 Cent shared an Instagram photo of himself spelling out “BROKE” using hundred dollar bills. He wrote in the Instagram caption, “When i look back at some of the shit that i did, I be bugging out. I see all these new versions i like all of them.”
Soulja Boy stepped in to remind fans he was the “first rapper to do everything” when he posted a photo of himself doing the challenge back in 2016 claiming he was the originator, captioning the photo, “I was the first to do it.”
Meanwhile, Brooklyn rapper Fivio Foreign used the money challenge as an opportunity to send a subliminal message to his baby’s mother, saying “FUCC CHILD SUPPORT” on the wood floor of his high rise apartment.
He added in the caption, “Good fathers shuddnt have to be on child support,” accented by a middle finger emoji. After both The Shade Room and Akademiks shared the post, he received comments such as, “The courts gonna have a field day with this picture when he miss a payment” and “Good try, man, but no, we are not going to put up with this one.”
