Ja Rule has chosen not to stoop as low as 50 Cent in the ongoing feud that’s taking us all straight back to the early noughties.
Fiddy, who has a long history of beef with Ja Rule, posted a photoshopped picture of him at an arena concert for Ja Rule and claimed he bought 200 seats in the front row of his Texas show so he could make it look empty.
In response to the funny yet extremely petty move, Ja Rule ha shown he’s not too bothered by it and instead laughed at the effect he has on 50 Cent, aka Curtis Jackson.
Here’s the outrageous photo:
The image he posted is in fact photoshopped as Ja Rule’s show hasn’t happened yet, but the photo was posted to add fire to the flames.
I mean, it’s pretty hilarious, you’ve got to give him that. Imagine Ja Rule looking down at his ‘fans’ to see the Candy Shop star staring up at him.
The rapper captioned his photo:
What a show, I mean just fucking great. Do it again my kid went to the restroom. LOL #bellator #lecheminduroi
Ja Rule tickets cost about $70 each (£55) according to Live Nation, so if he bought 200, that means he dropped about $14k (nearly £11k) just to play the prank.
In response to the playground tactic, Ja Rule posted on Twitter revelling in how he gets to Fiddy followed by numerous laughing emojis, saying:
I get under @50cent skin… I love it!!! #iconn
He put another photo of the empty seats and Ja Rule on stage saying:
LOL Damn Boy you put on a hell of a show. get the strap #bellator #lecheminduroi
Though the photo is fake, Fifty did purchase 200 tickets to the show, so maybe we’ll see the real version of the photo soon.

The rappers’ beef spans 15 years, but neither of them agree on what started it.
According to Rolling Stone, 50 Cent says Ja Rule, aka Jeffrey Atkins, falsely accused him of stealing his jewellery and brought it to the attention of Irv Gotti, the founder of Murder Inc. Records.
Atkins however says the tension started after they shot a video together in their hometown of Queens, New York.
Allegedly, 50 felt disrespected by how his fellow rapper greeted him on the shoot, which led to multiple diss records and it just spiralled from there.
It all heated up again when Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr mentioned Ja Rule’s name in an interview sitting next to 50.
It got REALLY petty at one point, with Ja Rule tweeting:
What’s funny is @50cent [lets] women and MEN play with his butthole… that’s kinda funny… @50cent keeps my name in his mouth… I think he’d rather have my dick in his mouth lmao.
Vintage school boy disses that, while almost certainly outdated, continue to fan the flames of this beef.
Really, Ja Rule wins here because he’s just received a lot of money from 50 Cent.
