Where did this come from?
Ja Rule has a case of the Twitter fingers.
The rapper blindsided his one-time arch-rival 50 Cent in a series of posts to social media. In the posts, Ja accused Fif of being soft and made fun of the numerous times that the rapper was attacked early in his career.
“Fun hip hop FACT: 50 Cent is a p**sy,” he shared on Twitter.
Ja said that the attack came from 50 talking about him.
“Let’s be clear I mind my business…but for some reason 50 cent keeps my name in his mouth,” he said, before taking another opportunity to go on the offensive.
“I think he’d rather have my d**k in his mouth #b**cha**n**ga #ticklebooty,” he wrote.
Fans asked Ja Rule if he was really sure that he wanted to go down this path again. Enough people on Twitter remember “Back Down” to be skeptical of Ja’s latest move, but he dropped a history lesson on people who think that 50 got away clean.
“50 Cent got beat[…], stabbed and shot. What do you remember?” he asked.
Ja wasn’t done there. He continued to address 50 Cent in a series of more and more disrespectful posts.
“I own your soul 50 Cent and everyone sees it now. You’re my b**ch! Come on let’s keep it a buck. 50 Cent is my son, my student, young padawan. Lol you owe me your life, boy,” he wrote on the platform.
The comments seemed to be sparked by an interview where Fif was asked about their status in 2018. The rapper said he didn’t feel the need to address his beef with Ja because he’d already “put him to bed.”
Ja called on journalists to set the record straight on Twitter.
“Don’t be scared to ask 50 Cent why he got an order of protection or did I whoop him out at the studio or did he talk to the feds,” he wrote. “Y’all really think 50 Cent is tuff?”
He asked fans to let down their blinders and encouraged a new nickname for the rapper and television producer.
“D**k riding is not a form of transportation and it will get you nowhere,” he said, before asking all his followers to start calling Fif “ticklebooty.”
50 replied to Ja Rule’s taunts on Instagram saying this all seemed a bit familiar. Alongside a pic that referenced Groundhog Day, Fif let Ja know that it wasn’t going to go well for him.
“When the checks stop and you go back to the hood, and everybody knows your broke,” he wrote. “it’s not my fault.”
Check out Ja’s ranting up top. What do you think? Does he need to leave it? Will this end in the same way that it did in the early ‘00s? Does it matter? I mean neither 50 nor Ja Rule are exactly known for being rappers on the radio at this point, and they don’t seem to be interested in returning.
It’s a fun (and hateful) throwback, for sure. But does it matter in the grand scheme if 50 and Ja still hate each other? I mean, these are grown men who should have more going on. And no beef is going to make a space for the type of music they made in their peak on the radio. Sound off in the comments and be sure to SHARE this article.
