It's never too late to dig up an old beef, and for Ja Rule his new book Unruly gets the job done. In excerpts published by the New York Daily News, Ja details his 14-year-old discrepancy with 50 Cent by accusing him of snitching for the federal government, something that Fif has denied in the past.
According to Ja, Fif implicated him and Irv Gotti after he was shot nine times, back in 2000. "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.,'" he wrote.
Fif has said that he never named Ja or Gotti.
However, in his recollection, the ex-Murder Inc artist wrote that his adversary was a puppet for the authorities, who "secretly led them through his recordings for the answers they were looking for."
The explosive allegations don't end there either. Ja recounted an alleged beating that he handed down to Fif at the infamous Hit Factory recording studio, also in 2000. "50 tried to swing on me, but I dipped, then I hit him with the baby Louisville Slugger," Ja wrote. "Bam! I dropped the bat. I pulled the shirt over his head. I started catching him left, right, uppercut."
He continued to attack, grabbing a crutch for a weapon while Fif's crew ran away, he wrote. "We proceeded to whip his a--. I was putting in my work. 50 was crunched in the corner. I slammed the big Tannoy speaker down on him."
There's no way of telling if his story is completely accurate and Fif hasn't hit back yet. He probably will soon, though, the "Smoke" MC doesn't usually turn down an opportunity to take shots at Ja.
