Months after rapper Ja Rule revealed he shared a plane ride with one-time rival 50 Cent, the former Murder Inc. leader has provided details on what exactly went down.
According to the New York native, maturity and growth as men helped the situation turn out peacefully.
Last year, you shared a flight with your former foe 50 Cent. What happened when you two saw each other? We actually did share the same flight [laughs] which is crazy. Ain’t nothing really to talk about it is what it was. He seen me, I seen him. We said what’s up and we rode our flight and that was that. No animosity? Not at all, we both grown men now. You guys had an epic beef. It’s not really like that in hip-hop anymore, right? That was a long time ago. We’re both about our money, about our families and we’re doing what we’re doing. (VIBE)
Despite being asked by G-Unit‘s DJ Whoo Kid last December, 50 immediately passed on discussing what went down during a live radio interview.
DJ Whoo Kid: And the last question, man. You had a very exclusive flight with Ja Rule. How was that? You never really talked about that. 50 Cent: There wasn’t nothing to talk about man. DJ Whoo Kid: [laughs] Okay. [laughs] That was funny. (Sirius XM)
Rule broke the news of sharing a flight with Curtis Jackson a month prior via his Twitter page.
“What are the chances me and 50 same flight same row no problems!!! #Grownmansh*t,” Rule tweeted November 18.
“For all those who want nothing more then for two black successful black men to KILL each other KILL YOURSELF!!! #N*ggaweoffdat” (Ja Rule’s Twitter)
A few months ago, former Murder Inc. CEO Irv Gotti admitted Fif ultimately won the back-and-forth dispute.
“Yeah, we took an L but listen, the thing about it is when you’re going through it, you’re going through it,” Gotti explained to radio host Angie Martinez. “I’ll take you back. We was in my office, me and Rule, we in the office and [Funkmaster] Flex was about to play ‘In Da Club,’ [laughs] so Flex plays ‘In Da Club.’ That record was so dope, I looked at Rule and said, ‘We have a major problem.’ [laughs] … We took the L, but you know what? People take L’s. It’s not the L, it’s what you do and if you keep swinging and keep fighting.” (“The Angie Martinez Show”)
