Murder Inc associate Cadillac Tah recently emerged back into the spotlight and weighed in on 50 Cent's strategic plan to take Ja Rule's fame during their heated rap battle around 2003 which led to G-Unit's fame.
Claiming he spoke with Fif on numerous occasions about why he would choose rap beef over showcasing his lyrical talent, Tah explained the rapper's previous anti-Ja Rule taunts.
"I guess [his plan] was for him to try to Tupac it, Tupac and Biggie," Tah explained in an interview. "Find a target, go after the target to make people look at him. That's kinda always been his little strategy even when he made the song 'How to Rob.' He did that so everybody would switch the attention to him, it wasn't like that was a bad plan. It worked, so if it worked it means it was a good plan. I was just not advising him to do that -- He played a ill strategic game. He threw Ja off of his grind and jumped on Ja's sh*t. He always wanted what Ja had, I mean that kinda fame, how Ja was killing 'em on the radio songs every five minutes...He came in the game with 'What up blood, what up cuz,' and then it's 'I wanna take you to the candy shop,' and he would start singing a whole lot. It's the same sh*t you had my n*gga on the Summer Jam screen about, making fun of that -- and you d*mn near made a whole singing album like that." (Ms Drama TV)
Rule recently said his rap war against 50 was unfair due to the G-Unit leader's association with police.
"I went at 50 too, I don't think n*ggas think about that either," Rule said in an interview earlier this summer. "I went at that n*gga hard too. 50 done had a beef with a gang of n*ggas. Even the first record he made I think was 'How 2 Rob,' and I was the only artist that when I seen him, I was like, 'Eh, that ain't funny homie. What's happening.' You feel what I'm saying? Everybody else that seen him, 'Hahahahahaaa,' silly n*ggas. Nah n*gga, ain't no dap, n*gga. It ain't funny. What's happening? And I went at his head. He couldn't f*ck with what we as doing on these streets so he went into a booth and became Superman. And that's how that whole thing transcended and he was talking so much to the police, n*gga couldn't really express his true feelings. He got my n*ggas facing 20 years in jail, my n*gga Supreme is doing life right now. When n*ggas talk all that sh*t, I laugh because they don't know the infrastructure with how it all spiraled to what it is today." (Forbez DVD)
Prior to dropping his Get Rich or Die Tryin' debut, G-Unit dissed Murder Inc on numerous occasions including the song "I Smell P*ssy."
"Son, you smell that," Fif says on the 2002 song's intro. "I smell p*ssy, is that you Irv? I smell p*ssy, is that you Ja? I smell p*ssy, is that you Black? I smell p*ssy, is that you Tah? Y'all n*ggas is p*ssy." ("I Smell P*ssy")
Tah later responded with his "There's A Snitch In Da Club" diss track.
"You can find me on the block flying through your hood," Tah rapped. "And my money stack good, dressed in all black Timberland chuckers/N*ggas is movie making/We blast, lights, camera, gun and action/Ain't no running track sh*t, it's straight slugs/Push come to shove I'll put a few in your mug -- How you call yourself 50 when you never even met or saw the real 50 Cent." ("Snitch In Da Club")
