Ja Rule recently responded to his longtime rival, 50 Cent, labeling him a “clown” and a “troll” amid their ongoing feud that has spanned decades. The latest exchange of words came after Ja Rule’s performance at the 2023 BMI R&B/Hip Hop Awards, where he sang his song “One Of Us” from his album “Rule 3:36.” During the performance, Ja Rule appeared tied to a wooden column, prompting 50 Cent to mock him on social media, questioning whether he was supposed to be Jesus.
Ja Rule clarified that he was not on the cross but rather on a stake, emphasizing that Jehovah’s Witnesses believe Jesus died on a stake, not a cross. He explained that the symbolism was not meant to mock Jesus but to convey his own sacrifices in the music industry.
When asked about 50 Cent’s comments, Ja Rule stated that he didn’t feel the need to explain himself but added, “he is just a clown, a troll.” The rivalry between the two Queens rappers has been marked by diss tracks, social media banter, interview insults, and more, dating back to 1999.
Despite the ongoing feud, Ja Rule showed his philanthropic side at the Pencils of Promise gala, where he donated $50,000 to build a school in Guatemala. The event aimed to support children’s access to quality education globally and successfully raised $1.2 million. Other honorees at the gala included Debra Messing and rap legend Doug E. Fresh, making it a memorable evening for a worthy cause.
Ja Rule’s comments reveal his determination to steer clear of further clashes with his longstanding rival. He emphasizes his preference for making positive impacts, like his substantial donation to educational initiatives. This gesture demonstrates his commitment to fostering a more constructive legacy and leaving behind the years of rivalry and feuding that have characterized his relationship with 50 Cent.
