Ja Rule bashes 50 cent in his new book
Rapper Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffery Atkins, did not hold back his tongue speaking about the 14-year-old feud with 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson in his new book “Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man,” which will be out next Tuesday.
Ja Rule notes in his new book that in 2000, during a peace summit in Atlanta, things did not go well…peacefully.
“50 tried to swing on me, but I dipped, then I hit him with the baby Louisville Slugger,” says Ja Rule, who came armed with a baseball bat – according to the Daily News. “Bam! I dropped the bat. I pulled the shirt over his head. I started catching him left, right, uppercut.”
According to the Queens rapper, 50 Cent and his crew fled the scene shortly right after.
However, that same year, Ja recalls a recording studio attack at the Hit Factory in NYC against 50 Cent —the same year 50 was stabbed.
I hit him with the crutch. 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.
In 2011, Ja and 50 squashed their beef, but Ja claims the reason for their dispute was due to his success, “50 was a crazed man on a mission to destroy me.”
Stay tuned for Ja Rule’s
reality show “Follow the Rules” which will take place at his home with his wife and their three kids.
