50 Cent and Ja Rule’s Beef the Subject of ‘Weekend Update’ on ‘SNL’
50 Cent doesn't seem to want to let go of his long-standing beef with Ja Rule. On Saturday (Nov. 3), Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update featured a joke about Fif buying up 200 seats for Ja's recent concert so that those rows would be empty, and the next day, the G-Unit boss posted a tweet laughing at the expense of his fellow Queens rapper.
"LOL what I do now? get the strap #bellator #lecheminduroi," 50 tweeted along with a video of the joke.
Given their recent string of viral jabs, it's no surprise to see the Power creator had himself a good laugh about the SNL clip. In the clip, SNL cast member Colin Jost commends 50 for his pettiness while also joking about Ja Rule.
"Rapper 50 Cent continued his long-standing feud with Ja Rule by buying 200 front-row tickets to his recent concert so they would all be empty," says one of the "anchors" on the faux news show. "That's just great. Ironically, 200 tickets to a Ja Rule concert costs exactly 50 cents."
50's latest tweet only adds more fuel to his decade-long beef Ja Rule, which escalated recently after the Get Rich Or Die Tryin' rapper said no one wants to see Ja Rule perform anymore after a canceled concert. However, it's evident that fans still want him to perform, especially after hitting the stage with Jennifer Lopez at the 2018 MTV VMA's over the summer.
"The more Em Mentions my name the more I realize how fucking LEGENDARY I am... I was killing the game so hard that all the biggest rappers in the industry (at the time) joined forces to dethrone the God... lmao..." Ja writes in the caption for an IG post dated Sept. 15.
