Ja Rule claps back at 50 Cent by reminding him he influenced his son’s upbringing.
Even though it’s Valentines Day, that’s not stopping Ja Rule & 50 Cent from sending some shade at one another. Earlier today, 50 Cent kicked things off by sending out a hilarious meme making fun of Ja Rule, with it saying “Ja Rule’s kids asking him for the 100th time if they could watch Power,” while footage of Power’s Ghost screaming “Nooo” is played. While the meme was a relatively light jab from 50 Cent in comparison to his previous shots, it was enough to warrant a response from Ja Rule this afternoon.
Hours later, Ja Rule decided to hop on Instagram & remind Fif of a quote that his son, Marquise, had said about listening to Ja Rule growing up. The quote read, “Ja Rule was probably one of the first to [Sing and rap] and I listen to a lot of Ja Rule because of that,” meanwhile Rule left the caption “Glad I was able to inspire you and your dad.”
The quote was taken from an interview 50 Cent’s son, Marquise, did last February with Rap-Up, where he talked about being influenced by Ja Rule growing up.
“But as far as I can go back into my mental rolodex, Ja Rule was probably one of the first to do it and I listen to a lot of Ja Rule because of that. So, it’s more like tapping into both. It’s like a history book. You’re able to get things now that you don’t think about but when you go in the history books and you look back, you realize, “I’m into this because of this. Somebody else opened that door.” So I feel like it’s only right that you know why you’re able to do certain things today and why it’s cool to do certain things today,” Marquise said talking about being influenced by the 2000’s & today’s work.
Wednesday’s clap back is just the latest in 50 Cent & Ja Rule’s on-going feud. Just last month, the two reignited the beef again after Ja Rule went hard at 50 Cent on Twitter, before the G-Unit rapper responded of course.
As always, we’ll keep you posted on their on-going feud moving forward. In the meantime, look out 50 Cent’s “Crazy” new song to be coming soon.
