50 Cent Talks Ja Rule and Fredo Starr Fights
50 Cent finally adressed those wangsta allegations Ja Rule and Onyx's Fredro Starr have thrown his way, and, according to him, the fact that they're even thinking of him is proof enough that he won.
"[The Ja Rule incident] is so old it doesn't make sense to talk about it," 50 said while hosting a G-Unit special on SiriusXM on Wednesday (Aug. 20). "Even around that, you had Fredro [Starr] come back and say something. These guys man ... I f***ed them up bad."
Back when Ja Rule was promoting his memoir, Unruly, The Highs and Lows of Becoming a Man, in June, he touched on an excerpt in which he described beating on his nemesis 50 Cent with a baby Louisville Slugger.
On the heels of that account of the 2000 Hit Factory scuffle, Fredro told Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club (also in June) that at the 2003 Vibe Awards Fif tried to swing on him and straight up missed.
Fif brushed off their claims by simply questioning why the focus was on him. "I thought the book was about your life? I guess I'm your motherf---ing life," he said.
Unit members Yayo and Young Buck also chimed in, backing up Fif's story. "You smacked the s--t out that boy," Young Buck said, possibly referring to the Fredro Starr incident.
There are always two sides, or maybe three, to a story.
G-Unit released the video for their single "Come Up" on Thursday (Aug. 21) and plan on dropping an album in November.
