|Clearance bin rappers 50 Cent and Ja Rule posed together last year. The feud over, right? Ja reflects on it.|
Ja Rule comes out of the cesspool to reignite the infamous feud between him and Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cent, the leader of the Unit). This marks over 10 years since the hip-hop stans got to know how much Ja and 50 hate each other.
Ja Rule comes clean about his feud with 50 Cent. Although he's no longer worried about his sworn enemy, the entertainer might as well start it all over again. He wants to air out how this little feud started.
This a well-publicized dispute started with 50 Cent claiming that a friend robbed Ja Rule of his jewelry and that Ja Rule accused him of setting it up.
However, Ja Rule claimed the conflict stemmed from a video shoot in Queens because 50 did not like seeing him "getting so much love" from the neighborhood.
While at The Hit Factory studio in New York, the rappers had an altercation and some of Murder Inc. associates jumped 50. He was treated for three stitches after receiving a stab wound.
Rapper Black Child claimed responsibility for the stabbing, saying he acted in self-defense because he thought someone reached for a gun.
An affidavit by an IRS agent suggested that Murder Inc. had ties to Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, a New York drug lord who was suspected of being involved in the murder of Jam Master Jay and the shooting of 50. An excerpt of the affidavit read:
The investigation has uncovered a conspiracy involving McGriff and others to murder a rap artist who has released songs containing lyrics regarding McGriff's criminal activities. The rap artist was shot in 2000, survived and thereafter refused to cooperate with law enforcement regarding the shooting. Messages transmitted over the Murder Inc. pager indicate that McGriff is involved in an ongoing plot to kill this rap artist, and that he communicates with Murder Inc. employees concerning the target.
In an interview with MTV, Ja Rule acknowledged his defeat against 50 Cent and stated that his new album, The Mirror, will not be continuing any past feuds that he has engaged in. He said: There was a lot of things I wanted to say, and I didn't want there to be any bitter records on the album. Because I'm not bitter about anything that happened [in the past few years].
In May 2011, it was confirmed that both Ja Rule and 50 Cent squashed the feud.
Ja Rule said "I’m cool. We ain't beefing no more. We’ll never collaborate. That’s just what it is. You don’t have to be at war with somebody, but it’s also kind of like U.S. and another country that they may not get along with. We don’t gotta go to war, but we’re not friends either. But we can coincide inside of a world. He’s doing him, and he’s not thinking about me, and I’m doing me and I’m not thinking about him."
Not so fast. HipHopDX reports that Ja still talking shit. Wonder when's 50 going to respond?
In a sitdown with VladTV, the washed up rapper opens up again about this issue with 50 Cent, Ja Rule explained his side of an infamous chain snatching incident and clarified that the G-Unit founder “had nothing to do with it.”
“He’s good at what he does,” Ja Rule said of 50 Cent early in the interview. “He tells stories. I call him MC Gusto, you ever seen CB4? That’s who he is in real life to me.”
“It had nothing to do with music, Hip Hop, Rap, none of that,” Ja Rule said before admitting that he gave up the chain when a gun when pointed at him. “Of course, I said, ‘Yeah, take it.' Nigga got a gun on you. Nigga with a gun is the winner. Hands down. The guy with the gun won. ‘Take that, hold on to that.’
“Anyway, so I guess the story got back in the hood and so 50 used that as his end, to have something to say about me,” he continued. “But it had nothing to with him. I didn’t even know you know this dude. His story is, ‘I seen him with Troy out and about and I got mad at him.’ Nigga you had nothing to do with it, why would I get mad at the guy next to the guy? His stories just don’t add up, they don’t make sense. But to an outside source, looking in listening, people don’t know what to believe.”
As you know, all the players from the feuds of yesterday are now on the bottom of the clearance bin.
See what 50 Cent done to them all.
50 Cent is on the independent circuit after leaving Interscope. He announced this year that he is done with Eminem and Dr. Dre after they held his garbage in the bin too long. It started to smell.
Seriously, his songs off the now shelved album Street King Immortal weren't charting. Even with Adam Levine, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Alicia Keys, Jeezy, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg on the tracks, Mr. Iovine wasn't seeing a profit. So instead of going into the studio to muster time to make hits, 50 decided to leave the label that made him rich. He jumps onto some off-shoot of Capitol Records.
50 Cent went on this rant about how Dre and Iovine screwed him. Mostly because his Slump headphones were passed by Apple. The Beats Audio put Dre in the billionaires club and Mr. Iovine formally left Interscope a very rich and powerful man.
Those outburst forced G-Unit entirely off Interscope. That also gave 50 a chance to reunite with his disgruntled members (minus Jayceon).
The Unit got back together and released a couple of sleepers but no hits. The Unit is formed with 50, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and former Cash Money artist Kidd Kidd.
Jayceon (by the name of Game) is acting like a total dickhead. Still trying to work out them differences with the Unit but still dissing. Buck tried to calm the feud but no dice. Game wants Blood.
Foolish rapper was dumped from Interscope after Jesus Piece sold less than 100,000 copies. Game tried to eat with Lil' Wayne and Baby. That didn't go so well.
Now Game is flipping burgers somewhere while trying to sell his Year of the Wolf album.
Of course, 50's proven a point. Back in 2005, 50 aired out problems with Game. He said that he's putting his shit out on Koch Records. I guess he's proven a point.
Game is signed to E1 Records (formerly known as Koch). Game stated that he'll sign Ja to his Blood Money label just to piss 50 off.
