The feud between Ja Rule and 50 Cent has been a long drawn out beef that has spanned nearly two decades, and doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon.
In his new book Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man, the Queens, NY bred rapper born Jeffrey Atkins, 38, claims 50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson, 38, cooperated with the federal government to build the 2005 case against him, music executiveIrv Gotti, and his record label Murder Inc. (now known as The Inc.).
NY Daily News Confidential Reports:
“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.
