Yesterday, news broke that 50 Cent had found humour in the facial tattoo of Kiwi Mongrel Mob member Puk Kireka, who was featured in a new story by the Sun UK.
And now Kireka has responded to the rapper, offering a warm "Haere Mai" despite being the subject of an internet roasting session.
His response was filmed in a video, which sees Kireka admit he was stoked to even be mentioned by the "In Da Club" rapper, even going as far as inviting him to Hastings.
"Someone like him mentioning me in his statuses, I feel privileged a little bit," Kireka said.
"If you've got something to say come over, unfortunately I can't come to your country 'coz , I'm too gangster and my criminal history won't allow me to enter into your country.
"So haere mai, come over to New Zealand, Hawke's Bay, sit down and we'll have a chat...whatever you want to do."
Kireka's video was sent to Hawke's Bay Today by his Tamatea Club rugby coach Levi Armstrong, who quipped the video may just "score" Kireka a music contract.
