50 Cent taunted Sean "Diddy" Combs on Instagram after federal officials raided Combs' mansions in Los Angeles and Miami on Monday.

Combs is facing sexual-assault allegations and numerous lawsuits. The Los Angeles Times, citing unnamed sources, reported the Department of Homeland Security carried out the raids as part of a sex-trafficking investigation.

On Instagram, 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, joked about the situation. The two rappers have been feuding since the early 2000s.

On Monday, 50 Cent posted a screenshot of a TMZ article about the raid criticizing Combs in the caption, but it has since been deleted. He wrote: "Now it's not Diddy do it, it's Diddy Done. They don't come like that unless they got a case."

Page Six reported 50 Cent also posted a screenshot of Combs' two sons in handcuffs, but the picture has been deleted.

In the caption, he wrote: "Shit just got real. The Fed's in all the cribs, damn they got the kids in cuffs."

Combs has denied the various allegations against him. In December, he posted a statement on X saying: "Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family, and for the truth."

50 Cent and Combs' beef started in 2006

The feud between the two rappers publicly kicked off in 2006 when 50 Cent released a diss track called "The Bomb," which claims that Combs knows who shot and killed The Notorious B.I.G. in March 1997.

Since then, the pair have made numerous comments about each other. In 2010, for example, Combs described 50 Cent as a "hating ass crap" after he became the manager of Rick Ross in 2009 — another rapper that 50 Cent had beef with, according to HipHopDX.

50 Cent also got involved when Combs' ex-partner Cassie Ventura filed a lawsuit in November alleging rape, sexual assault, and human trafficking. She claimed that she was trapped in a "cycle of abuse" with the rapper.

Combs settled the case a day after Ventura filed the suit.

In December, 50 Cent said his production company was working on a documentary about the sexual-assault allegations against Combs. He later posted a clip from the documentary featuring the Bad Boy Records rapper Mark Curry alleging that Combs spiked girls' drinks at parties.

A representative for 50 Cent told Variety in December: "The untitled 'Diddy' documentary is in development through G-Unit Film and Television with Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson serving as Executive Producer, proceeds from this documentary that G-Unit Film & Television receives will go to victims of sexual assault and rape."

Representatives for 50 Cent and Combs did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Business Insider.
