NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) In the latest round of a 20-year-and-counting beef between 50 Cent and Ja Rule, the “Get Rich Or Die Tryin'” rapper claims he bought 200 tickets to an upcoming Ja Rule concert to keep the seats unoccupied.
“I just bought 200 seats in the front so they can be empty. LOL,” 50 said in a now-deleted Instagram post. “People think I’m mean so go see this. $15 bucks wait what I do now LOL.”
The post showed a picture of tickets being sold on Instagram.
Fiddy has yet to delete a post of him photoshopped into an empty section of an arena.

The effort appears to be inspired by Ja Rule recently saying that he had to cancel a show in Syracuse, N.Y>, because of poor ticket sales. Ja Rule has yet to respond to the diss.
“50 Cent and Ja Rule’s beef is officially old enough to vote,” XXL magazine explained earlier this year. “Few hip-hop feuds are as bitter as this rivalry between Queens music legends, which has spanned nearly two decades, powered by savage diss tracks, spiteful interviews that stoked the fires, social media bashing and physical altercations.”
Details are scarce but the beef apparently began with a confrontation many years ago that caused 50 Cent to wage war against Ja Rule and Murder Inc. At one point it included Fif getting stabbed and Ja Rule getting arrested. Another incident involved Violator Management getting riddled with bullet holes.
