Melbourne street artist and memer Lushsux has claimed he’s been attacked for his work, following his viral mashup murals. The murals have seen plenty of 50 Cent mashups: 50 Cent as Oprah, Tekashi 6ix9ine, Mike Tyson, even US Vice President, Mike Pence.
50 Cent has been sharing heaps of the murals, and a couple of days ago, he shared himself reimagined as Mike Tyson. The caption read, “this guy need a ass whoopin bad, he still doing this shit.”
Lushsux then posted a screenshot of 50 Cent’s post, along with an image of blood on a hospital bed. The caption read, “50 seems to want some more walls? Unfortunately some 6 or 7 smoothebrains at one time on the street already put me in hospital already this month because of this shit.”
“I dont like to bring up all the bad stuff I have to deal with just to paint some ha ha funny you laugh now images on walls but I guess now is a chance. I constantly have to unwillingly fight people ( among other insane shit you would not believe even if I told you ) on the street who for whatever cooked reason seem to feel the need to come up to me at a wall and start trouble. It’s tiresome, but it will not ever stop me doing what 99.8% of what everyone else seems to for the most part get a hearty chuckle out of, because they aren’t sociopathic pieces of shit.”
50 Cent then swiftly responded by posting another image of his art, captioned, “The artist got [punched] in the [face] that wasn’t me i didn’t do that.”
Lushsux quickly clarified that he didn’t blame 50 Cent for the attack and, in fact, blamed violent video games. “We gotta ban that shit already,” wrote the street artist.
