50 Cent takes rap beef to another level and buys 200 front row Ja Rule tickets so seats would be empty.
50 Cent has always been the kind to put a lot of effort into trolling his celebrity peers.
But the rapper, who we have politely dubbed the King of Petty, has taken his feud with Ja Rule to whole other level by purchasing a bunch of front row seats for his concert so that they would be empty.
‘People think I’m mean so go see this. $15 bucks wait what I do now LOL,’ he wrote as an Instagram caption alongside a photo of the tickets being sold on Groupon.
Commenting under the post, he said: ‘I just bought 200 seats in the front so they can be empty. LOL.’
Although the show has not happened yet, 50 acted as if he was there when he captioned the image, writing: ‘What a show, I mean just fucking great. Do it again. my kid went to the restroom. LOL. ‘
Fiddy clearly thinks he is hilarious and so do his fans – just take a look at the comment section on the Instagram post.
One user commented: ‘Everyone talking about 50 is petty for this. This is deeper than rap. When I grow up I wanna be like 50. ‘
‘Fuck beefing with 50, he’s on a whole other level,’ another added.
For those born after 1997 – or those way too busy paying attention to Girls Aloud or Busted to notice – the rap beef was born in the early 00s. Ironically, neither of them can agree to what caused the bad blood.
Ja Rule, however, says the tension started between them during a video shoot in their hometown of Queens, NYC.
50 allegedly felt disrespected by the way Ja Rule greeted him on the shoot, which led to him releasing multiple diss records aimed at Ja Rule and the rest was history.
The beef heated up again in 2018 when actor O’Shea Jackson Jr, also known as Ice Cube’s son, mentioned Ja Rule’s name in an interview sitting next to 50.
