(AllHipHop News) Ja Rule is set to release his new book Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man next week. The autobiography covers the platinum selling performer’s life from childhood to his time in federal prison where he underwent a personal transformation. The memoir also reportedly addresses his former rival 50 Cent.
According to the New York Daily News, Rule suggests 50 snitched on his business partner Irv Gotti to federal officials. Gotti and his brother Chris Lorenzo were charged with money laundering in 2005. Rule writes, “ secretly led them through his recordings for the answers they were looking for.” The Lorenzo brothers were later acquitted.
Ja also suggests 50 may have named him in the 2000 shooting incident where the G-Unit boss took nine bullets. “When [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.'”
In another section of Unruly, the “Holla Holla” rapper gives his side of two infamous fights between Murder Inc and G-Unit. One in Atlanta where he insists he hit 50 with a bat before his crew ran off, and another in New York where he claims to have slammed a speaker down on 50 as he crouched in a corner.
50 has repeatedly denied being a federal informant or working with police. The feud between 50 Cent and Ja Rule led to a shift of power in rap music. 50’s reemergence on the scene in 2003 and his rise to becoming one of the biggest stars in the genre came at the expense of Ja Rule and Murder Inc’s decline.
“50 was a crazed man on a mission to destroy me,” writes Ja. The Ja Rule/50 Cent beef was reportedly settled in 2011.
Ja Rule’s Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man will be available on Tuesday, July 1. To preorder a copy visit amazon.com
