Since the nationwide shut-in due to the novel coronavirus spread, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland‘s Verzuz Instagram Instagram Live battles have been must-watch entertainment. Hoping to throw his hat in the ring, Ja Rule says he’s down to clash with his longtime rival 50 Cent and promised to keep it free of hostility.
Fat Joe shared an IG Live conversation with Verzuz co-founder Swizz Beatz and aired the portion of the chat where Ja Rule called in on another phone. The “Always On Time” star is heard over Joey Crack’s smartphone speaker promising Swizz that he intends to “behave” and not drum up any of the beef with his fellow Queens native and foe in Fif.
Swizz Beatz didn’t sound entirely convinced that Ja Rule would keep it peace for the sake of the battle but did tell the rapper to send over 20 songs for the battle, no doubt to make certain the legalities are taken care of on the back end.
Not for nothing, Ja Rule had an incredible run of hits during his heights as did 50 Cent. But could the G-Unit General best his Murda Inc. nemesis in a head-to-head contest of tracks? Stay tuned.
Twitter is currently sounding off after learning of Ja Rule’s willingness to hop into the ring with 50 Cent. Some are saying that Ja certainly has a stack of hits that still ring off in your garden variety mix formats and club sets but there are many who feel that Fif has enough firepower to get him out of there.
We’ve got those reactions listed out below.

I think Ja Rule's run is best described by this Boondocks comic that came out during the height of Rule-mania. You literally could not escape him for about 2 years.— Andrew Barber (@fakeshoredrive) April 13, 2020
It would be a good fight, but 50 would take it. pic.twitter.com/0HINc7PrAe
Don't sleep on Ja Rule, he's got countless hits that still sound good today. This would be a good battle.— Hip Hop Immortal (@HipHopImm0rtal) April 13, 2020

I can see it already 15 mins in Ja Rule gon play Always On Time, and when its 50’s turn all you gon hear is “I smell pussy is that you Ja?” Ja Rule leaves the live and 50’s sinister laugh erupts.— RatedStar (@FleeGhost) April 13, 2020
Y’all laughing at Ja Rule for accepting an IG live battle with 50 Cent. But if it were to happen, just remember Ja Rule got bangers too. pic.twitter.com/w14eV4A8Ek— Ariel St. Patrick (@_hurtsa) April 13, 2020

I saw Ja Rule trending. I thought Trump fired Fauci and hired him. Whew.— Bakari Sellers (@Bakari_Sellers) April 13, 2020
50 Cent called out Ja for "Singing for hoes and sounding like the cookie monster" then immediately started singing for hoes and sounding like the cookie monster.— Justin L. Hunte 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 (@TheCompanyMan) April 13, 2020
50's hits are based on the Ja Rule model.
This is what would happen if 50 and Ja Rule had a battle over IG live😂 pic.twitter.com/xwd2X2WkkM— Rosa Parks’ Burner Account (@Rosasburner) April 13, 2020

Always On Time
Down Ass Bitch
Down 4 U
Livin It Up
Between Me & You
Aite maybe Ja Rule can’t go 20 for 20 but a ten for ten would be entertaining
TBH tho 50 Cent could just play the entire “Get rich or die trying” album and beat Ja Rule in this battle— IGZ (@igzrap) April 13, 2020
