Those old enough to remember owning a PS2 can no doubt attest to the ferocity of the 50 Cent vs Ja Rule beef. During the early aughts, 50 Cent waged war against Ja Rule, Irv Gotti, and the entire Murda Inc roster. Though Ja was a commercial mainstay in his own right, the sheer firepower of Shady/Aftermath’s star-studded empire proved a formidable foe. Many have come to look back on 50 as the clear victor, while Ja seemed to fade away from the spotlight, his reputation forever shaken.
Though both men have aged, and theoretically matured, old wounds never truly heal. In recent months, Ja and 50 Cent have once again taken to exchanging shots, with Rule happily reigniting the feud at the tail end of May. Naturally, 50 wasted little time in getting the strap, firing back with a cruel reminder of Ja’s Fyre Festival fiasco. Naturally, many old fans flocked to the reawakened grudge match, despite a notable lack of any lyrical sparring; the unbridled pettiness was truly something to behold. Today, 50 Cent once again had words for his old foe, taking to Instagram to accuse Rule of reporting his IG account.
Unfortunately, Ja was in no mood. The Murda Inc rapper retaliated in a swift and decisive fashion, clapping back with an IG post of his own. “Order of PROTECTION!!! 50 Cent aka Curtis Ratson!!!” writes Ja. “Now go beat on one of ya baby mamas… THIS IS YALL HERO!!!” The picture in question features some paperwork labeling 50 an “informant,” as well as an interesting depiction of Officer 50. Clearly, Rule has no intention of being pushed around. While it’s unclear how far this may go. May the man with the best Photoshop and/or MS Paint skills win.
