Beef between 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 specifically 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, November 19, both Ja Rule and Irv Gotti were special guests on Star and Bucwild's morning show on Hot 97 NYC. Irv Gotti had some 'legal documents' stating the order of protection 50 'has on him'. Ja Rule yelled out "gay gay gay gay u - nit" mimicking the way 50 did "g-g-g-g-u-nit" in the beginning of the "Till I Collapse" freestyle (On the 8 Mile soundtracks bonus disk titled "Aftermath Sampler").
Ja Rule then threatened Eminem and Dre, that if they 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 grow's up?".
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.
Before signing with Interscope, 50 Cent was engaged in a well-publicized dispute with rival rapper Ja Rule and his label Murder Inc. Records. The rappers engaged in numerous mix tape "disses". The conflict stemmed from the rapper's alleged robbery of Ja Rule's jewelry, which led to a confrontation and 50 Cent's stabbing.
Before the release of Get Rich Or Die Tryin, Murder, Inc alongside The Source began a smear campaign against the rapper. A restraining order document was floating around the Internet stating that 50 Cent had placed label CEO, Irv Gotti and rapper Black Child in the document forging a belief that 50 Cent is a "snitch" or a police informant. Although 50 Cent dismissed the claims of not talking to police, the bad publicity continues to be a tool used by various rappers who have rivalries with G-Unit.
This was one of the most well known feuds in hip-hop history. 50 Cent accused Ja Rule of "singing" instead of rapping. Ja Rule retaliated, accusing him of insulting other rappers to gain fame. Ja Rule eventually tried to squash the beef with 50 Cent by using Louis Farrakhan in a televised interview. Ja Rule soon lost credibility when the interview was done a day before his album Blood In My Eye was released, leading 50 Cent to dismiss the interview as a blatant publicity stunt. 50 Cent had not commented much on Ja Rule's and Irv Gotti's situation. The FBI has probing the label's ties to McGriff who is possibly involved in the murder of Jam Master Jay.
According to website The Smoking Gun, there was a search warrant affidavit for the label. The affidavit proceeds with the label's involvement to McGriff. The failed assassination on the rapper and money laundering plagued the label. This also states that McGriff willingly "communicates with Murder, Inc. employees concerning the target."
