50 Cent and Ja Rule are never going to agree on anything, including an Instagram Live battle but 50 did offer a suggestion of who he should battle: Snoop Dogg.
Speaking with Big Boy on Big Boy’s Neighborhood, the For Life creator broke it down to one simple factor: catalog.
“It would make more sense catalog wise, me and Snoop. Cause we could compete every step of the way. Ja Rule? He got like five, six good duets,” 50 told Big Boy. “The hit records are all him and Jennifer Lopez, him and Mary J. Blige, him and Ashanti. Him and … a woman, a female. All the records. He got one hit song by himself, ‘Holla Holla.’”
Never allowing a moment go by to clown his longtime adversary, 50 joked that beyond most of Ja’s songs being features with women, they also belong to someone else.
“They’re all doable records but they’re someone else’s,” he said. “Stevie Wonder, ‘Do I Do’!” he mocked, referencing Ja’s 2001 hit, “Livin’ It Up” which featured the very male Case.
The latest installment of Ja versus 50 dates back a few weeks ago when the “Clap Back” rapper suggested that the two foes jump on Instagram Live to go catalog for catalog. Ja even told Fat Joe that he would “behave during such a battle but has since changed his stance in subsequent interviews and comments.
“I don’t know if me and him can do that,” Ja told Hot 97’s Ebro Darden. “I don’t know if that would work. Just for respect of the culture. I would never want to disrespect the culture and let me and his little thing get into the love and respect of what Verzuz has brought to the culture, for each other’s catalog and the artistry. I would never want to tarnish that.”
