Fans might not get to see the Instagram Live battle of the century after all.
On Monday night (April 13), 50 Cent responded to Ja Rule‘s request for a hit-for-hit battle on IG Live. After weighed in on what they thought of the idea, Fif chimed in with his classic meme from the HBO series, Entourage, where he is seen pulling up in a convertible and laughs before driving off.
“Who want to battle, and here’s a moment of silence for the sick and suffering. LOL #abcforlife #starz #powerbook2,3,4,5 #Fox #need attention call 50 #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi #g-unitfilms #g-unitbooks #g-unitrecords,” 50 captioned the IG post.
Fif doubled down on his response with an edited photo of Ja, holding a sign that said, “I will battle 50 cent for attntion.” He goes on to caption the photo, “Stupid #fyrefestival.”
Over the weekend, Ja Rule, who was on the phone with Fat Joe while the Bronx rapper was on IG Live with Swizz Beatz, said he wanted “all the smoke” in a battle against 50. Fans of both Ja and 50 appeared to be on both sides of the coin with their thoughts on the potential Instagram Live battle. However, it doesn’t look like the competition will come to fruition.
With a beef that steams from an incident in the late 1990s, Ja and 50 have released diss tracks, thrown jabs via social media posts and have also had physical altercations over the last 20 years. While the battle between the two Queens natives this could have been a monumental moment for hip-hop culture with the world remains self-isolating, it’s looking like a no-go.
