50 Cent and Ja Rule has been brewing for a good few years now.
Some of you may have heard about the physical squabbles, one
involving 50 punching Ja and another with Ja's crew stabbing
50 and a friend of his. Ever since 50 Cent has served Ja Rule
on wax, with such songs as "Your Life is on the
Line" where 50 imitates Ja's yelling of "Murdaaaa"
in the hook and "Get Out the Club" which
mentions the incident at the club..."You come 15 niggas,
10 knives, and I leave with 4 stitches, that ain't assault,
that's an insult".
Now that 50 signed with Shady/Aftermath Records, Ja Rule and
Irv Gotti seem to have a problem with Dr. Dre and Eminem for
signing an artist that they have beef with. On Tuesday,

allowed 50 Cent to release a diss track towards him or Muder
Inc. that Ja would take action against Eminem and Dre.
Busta Rhymes then joined in on the beef by appearing on the
track 'Hail Mary' with 50 and Eminem, which basically
describes how Ja is a fake of 2Pac. The beef even
extended to artists such as Nas who when asked who he was
backing in the beef, he chose Ja, who in turn dissed Nas
leaving Nas screwed on both sides of the beef.
The Shady Records crew then released "Body Guard" a.k.a "Shit
Hits the Fan" which was put on Obie Trice's debut album,
Cheers and in return, Ja released the diss "Loose Change"
which includes the lyrics: "Em you claim your motha's a crack
head, Kim's a known slut, so whats Hailie gonna be when she
So far, there has only been talk of this beef escalating
further and possibly going beyond a lyrical battle, but there
is a possability of this occurring, only time will tell.
