The hip-hop world has been buzzing with nostalgia as Ja Rule, the former Murder Inc. rapper, resurfaces with a bold claim: he once physically bested his long-standing rival, 50 Cent, in a no-holds-barred brawl. In an exclusive interview on Piers Morgan Uncensored, Ja Rule doubled down on his assertion, leaving fans and critics alike in awe.

The clash of titans

The feud between Ja Rule and 50 Cent has spanned two decades, marked by fiery diss tracks, public jabs, and simmering tension. But according to Ja Rule, the battle has been anything but mutual.

" You never see me say anything about him,” he asserted. “I just mind my business, do my business… I don’t do the back and forth."

Piers Morgan, the relentless host, pressed Ja Rule for details. Who would emerge victorious if they squared off today? Ja Rule’s response was unequivocal:

"That’s happened already too, Piers. You gotta do your research.” When asked who won, the Queens native confidently stated, “I did, Piers."

The untold story

Ja Rule’s claim isn’t new. In his 2014 memoir, Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man, he vividly recounted the fateful encounter.

"50 tried to swing on me,” Ja Rule wrote, “but I dipped, then I hit him with the baby Louisville Slugger. Bam! I dropped the bat. I pulled the shirt over his head. I started catching him left, right, uppercut.” The blows rained down, and Ja Rule stood triumphant."

But that wasn’t the only weapon in his arsenal. Another time, Ja Rule wielded a crutch—a makeshift club—courtesy of a camp member with a broken foot.

" I hit him with the crutch,” Ja Rule recalled. “We proceeded to whip his ass. I was putting in my work. 50 was crunched in the corner. I slammed the big Tannoy speaker down on him."

The witnesses speak

"Chris Gotti, co-founder of Murder Inc. Records, corroborated the tale. “We see him in Atlanta…Ja and 50 walk off, talking,” Gotti revealed. “Rule got that big voice. You hear him: ‘I don’t know you. Why are you making these records?’ 50 snuffed him…You wanna hear the real story? Ja took the snuff. Takes him. Has his shirt over his head. Hitting him right back. Gets out of his shirt and he starts running…Gets away. That’s what happened that day."

As for 50 Cent, he remains silent on the matter. No response to Ja Rule’s latest interview with Piers Morgan. Perhaps some battles are best left in the annals of hip-hop history.
