Rapper 50 Cent has taken his feud with fellow rapper Ja Rule to a new level. The star claims to have purchased 200 seats close to the stage of his rival’s upcoming show.
Ja Rule is playing a show in Arlington, Texas on Nov. 9. 50 Cent, in a since-deleted Instagram post, claimed to have bought 200 seats to the show just for the purpose of keeping them empty. He also made fun of Ja Rule’s low ticket price of $15.
“People think I’m mean so go see this. $15 bucks. Wait what I do now lol,” Page Six reports the caption wrote.
He reportedly later commented, “I just bought 200 seats in the front row so they can be empty LOL.”
The beef between the two Queens-native rappers goes back decades and, as Vulture reports, turned violent at some points. While they’ve mostly been peaceful throughout the most recent years, 50 seems to have reignited the feud with his latest ticket caper.
To add insult to injury, 50 Cent has been using his Instagram to taunt Ja Rule ever since the story broke.
“Lol at $15 a pop you can’t lose, I got 200 tickets for 3 bands,” he wrote over an image of the two.
He also shared a doctored image of himself sitting in a sea of empty seats as well as a video of a previous Ja Rule concert spliced with footage of a slew of empty seats.
“This is what yal was rocking too before I came out,” he wrote in the caption of a photo of a young Ja Rule. “Now you owe me big time and don’t ever forget it.”
Ja Rule hasn’t directly responded to the ticket snafu besides a simple tweet: “I get under @50cent skin… I love it!!!.”
