“‘Yo, somebody hold my shirt!'” the “P.I.M.P.” rapper cackles. “When you want somebody to hold you back, and they don’t!”
50 Cent is the king of petty.
Taking to Instagram early Friday morning, Fifty railed on fellow rapper Ja Rule and music producer Irv Gotti for seemingly getting refused entry at a club the night before.
In not one but two videos, the “P.I.M.P.” rapper provided commentary for the cringe-worthy footage, which shows Ja Rule angrily taking off his shirt in what could be perceived as an attempt to fight someone. While the situation was loud, no one was heard threatening physical violence, and Fifty could not get enough.
“Man damn why y’all won’t let us in, 50 told y’all not to let us in,” he captioned the first video, in which he can be heard cackling and shouting, “S.O.B’s — access denied.” S.O.B.’s is a concert venue in Manhattan.
Fifty then flipped the camera to show his face. “Meanwhile, back in Saudi Arabia,” he said with a hearty laugh. Fifty is currently in the Red Sea city of western Saudi Arabia for Jeddah World Fest. It’s the show Nicki Minaj pulled out of after the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. She said the treatment of women in the Middle Eastern country was also a contributing factor.
The second video is the one that shows Ja disrobing. Again, Fifty was in stitches.
“‘Yo, somebody hold my shirt!'” he mocked. “When you want somebody to hold you back, and they don’t! ‘Let me take my shirt off ’cause imma do nothing. F–k this, imma do a whole lotta nothing!’ Exclusive footage of nothing. N—a doing nothing!”
Ja clapped back at Fifty’s dig by posting his own video to Instagram — one showing a rat bathing itself.
“Curtis is that you,” he captioned the post. “Of ALL people you know what it feel like to get yo ass whoop by me my n—as lol…SCARED FOR YOUR LIFE AS N—A.”
Fifty and Ja have a long history of hating each other, but the former always manages to take the petty to new heights. For example, in October of last year, the “21 Questions” rapper claimed to have bought 200 tickets off Groupon to a Ja Rule concert to ensure certain rows at the show were empty. He then posted a Photoshopped picture of himself at an empty arena.
