Seems like Ja Rule’s looking to get that old beef thing back with 50 Cent because now he’s accusing his old foe of f*ckboy-like antics in a new book.
Entitled Unruly and due out next Tuesday, Ja is claiming Curtis’ snitching to the Feds is what helped them build a case against Murder Inc. a decade ago. Ja says 50 tattled and named names about the 2000 attack that saw G-Unit rapper getting shot nine times.
When they (the feds) asked him who he thought had shot him, it would make sense that 50 would have said, ‘Ja Rule, Irv Gotti and Murder Inc.,’ ” writes Ja Rule, referring to a 2000 attack that left Fitty hospitalized with nine gunshot wounds.
50 Cent later said he never cooperated with law enforcement, even when they came to him trying to make a case against Ja Rule’s rap-mogul colleagues Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo and Irv’s brother Chris, who were eventually acquitted of laundering drug money through their label, Murder Inc., in 2005.
But Ja Rule, 38, claims that case couldn’t have been made without 50 Cent. “He secretly led them through his recordings for the answers they were looking for,” Ja Rule insists.
Ja also describes altercations he had with 50 during the height of their beef. According to Ja, 50 caught the fade on more than one occasion, including a time he got beat with a baseball bat.
Ja Rule recalls a 2000 peace summit in Atlanta between the two that didn’t go so well.
“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. “Bam! I dropped the bat. I pulled the shirt over his head. I started catching him left, right, uppercut.”
According to Ja Rule, Fitty’s crew turned tail and ran. Ja Rule also claims he led the charge in the notorious Hit Factory recording studio attack in Midtown later the same year when 50 Cent was stabbed. Ja Rule says he armed himself with a crutch swiped from a crew member who had a broken foot and slammed into the recording studio with his crew.
“I hit him with the crutch,” brags Ja Rule. “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.”
