THE RULE IS BACK!… sort of. While it might seem like Ja Rule’s cooking up a heaping pot of beef stew, he’s just coming clean in a new tell-all slated to drop next week.
In “Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man,” Ja Rule speaks on his career and life, but the bit that’s making headlines is the portion on his former, bitter rival 50 Cent. In an excerpt that is sure to cause some rumblings, Ja accuses 50 Cent of snitching, to some degree, regarding the shooting that made 50 the man we know today,
“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.,’ ”
Ja Rule also makes claims that 50 stealthily snitched on Murder Inc’s Irv and Chris Gotti through his lyrics, resulting in a 2005 money laundering case against the rap mogul and his brother,
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.
The fun doesn’t stop there folks, with Ja mentioning multiple occasions he whooped 50’s ass. Here are some excerpts courtesy of the NY Daily News,
“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.”
Damn bruh, we wish rappers would retire gracefully. But hey, this is America, the land of the come-up. If you’re so inclined, Ja’s new book “Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man” drops July 1. Go cop that, because we’re pretty sure those ErvinGeoffrey tees still ain’t sellin’.
