Ja Rule Claims He No Longer Has Beef With 50 Cent
At one time Ja Rule and 50 Cent engaged in a legendary rap beef, but roughly nine years since his battles with 50 started, looking past a brief Twitter exchange earlier this year, Ja Rule is done beefing with Curtis Jackson.
“It’s resolved now. I’m cool. We ain’t beefing no more,” Ja Rule said to the.LIFE Files, before dismissing the idea that he’d ever collaborate with the G-Unit boss.
“We’ll never collaborate. That’s just what it is. You don’t have to be at war with somebody, but it’s also kind of like U.S. and another country that they may not get along with.
“We don’t gotta go to war, but we’re not friends either. But we can coincide inside of a world. He’s doing him, and he’s not thinking about me, and I’m doing me and I’m not thinking about him.”
Rule also talked of a recent exchange of words between himself and the aforementioned 50 Cent on Twitter, and if he had it to do over again, Ja would probably not have hit the “send” button.
“I was a little ashamed of myself to be even involved with that,” he began. “Because I’m like, yo, I’m 35 years old and I’m on Twitter beef? That’s not something I want to entertain, but I’m a man first, so I’m reading Isht like him sending Tweets and little things about me.
“Like, damn, N***a, what’s the problem man? We’ve been through that. It’s over. We done that. It was just that. It was a spur of the moment thing.”
“I was just mad at the moment because I couldn’t believe that he was still engaging me,” he continued. “Like, N***a, you still beefing with me? You still want to beef with me, N***a? I’m done with that.
“You got what you wanted out this business. You made you some money. You blew up, you did your thing. Enjoy. And I’m enjoying life. It’s not even that serious. And people are tired of it, I’m tired of it, and I don’t want to talk about it no more. I don’t want people to ask me about it no more.”
Ja Rule is currently working on a new album, Pain Is Love 2, which he plans to release before beginning a two year prison sentence on weapons possession charges this year.
“I just want to put it out to the world before I go in,” he said. “It’s funny because, I’m about to go to jail, and my main concern is to make sure that I get this album done and out there for the fans.”
