For months, there has been online chatter about 50 Cent one day stepping into the Verzuz ring. Names such as The Game and T.I. were mentioned as potential candidates for a Fiddy matchup.
However, the one person that is constantly named as the best challenger to 50 is Ja Rule. The two Queens-bred rap stars have a long, combative history that includes diss tracks and violent incidents.
Is Ja Rule willing to faceoff against his archrival as part of a hits-for-hits battle? The “Holla Holla” hitmaker spoke about Verzuz during an interview with HipHopDX, and he quickly rejected that idea.
“That ain’t gonna happen,” said Ja about a possible Verzuz event with 50 Cent. “Everybody don’t want this smoke. I got heat. When I do my shows, it’s like an hour of straight hit records, no filler.”
Back in April, 50 Cent seemingly shot down the prospect of musically clashing with Ja Rule. The G-Unit leader wrote on Instagram, “Who want to battle, and here’s a moment of silence for the still sick and suffering. LOL.”
