    It seems the Drake and Meek Mill beef has caused something of a chain reaction. A couple days back, Ja Rule posted on Instagram about comparisons between his own beef with 50 Cent and the current Drizzy fiasco, suggesting that the situations are apples and oranges -- unless, of course, someone gets stabbed or shot. He later clarified the comment was a joke, insisting that he doesn't want to see things escalate, but stressed that the two beefs shouldn't really be mentioned in the same sentence.

    50 Cent has recently been in the headlines concerning his filing for bankruptcy, but his recent interview with DJ Semtex was all about the music. During the sit-down, Fif reflected on the various competitions is his career, whether they be with Kanye West, Ja Rule, or Jay Z. As usual, he made some surprising statements, but generally kept the shade to a minimum, and gave props where it was due.Check out some key excerpts below. On challenging Kanye West's first week sales in 2007:

    Ja Rule will release his new book, Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man next week, and it may just bring an old beef back from the dead. The book details much of the highly-publicized feud between Ja Rule and 50 Cent, but most notably, gives us a look behind the scenes.

    50 Cent has been through so much beef, you could probably dedicate a book to the fights he has picked. Throughout his career, he has never been shy to give his honest opinion about fellow rappers. He has mastered the art of the diss song and pretty much wears the crown for being the king at feuding. His moves to out battle his rivals have been smart, conniving and sometimes just plain deep.

    It's been well over a decade since Eminem reveled in the center of seemingly every fiery controversy in popular culture. Never before had an artist dragged so many bystanders into his path of destruction. His assaults were ghastly, yet outstanding displays of rhyme, cadence and character. In the years of his prime, many would step foolishly into his crossfire, while others simply had it coming. The rest caught stray bullets.

    Director John Singleton Says Ja Rule Could've Had Ludacris' Role In The "Fast And Furious" Films

    If you think back 14 years ago to the first "Fast And The Furious" film, you'll remember that Ja Rule had a role as a driver named Edwin. Go forward to 2003's sequel, "2 Fast 2 Furious," though, and Ja was nowhere to be found, with Ludacris taking his place as the film's resident rapper/actor. John Singleton, director of the first two films, has now revealed that Ja passed on the role of Tej (an expanded version of the Edwin role) in the second film, leading to him approaching Luda for the role.

    As summer nears its end, we witnessed a cool-off of sorts before we get albums from Dr. Dre, The Weeknd, Travi$ Scott, Mac Miller and (hopefully) Kid Cudi. Still, there was plenty to be excited about this past week, what with CyHi dissing everyone on G.O.O.D. Music, new tapes from Curren$y and Lil B/Chance The Rapper and some dope, unexpected Chief Keef tracks.  Here's what was happening on Twitter this week.

    Ja Rule, Jay Z, and DMX have had varying degrees of success since, but in the late 90s, all three of them were pretty much on top their game. It was around that time that the three rappers decided to come together for a supergroup, settling for the menacing name Murder Inc. Things never panned out for a full album, and Ja later took the name for his record label, but fans have continued to wonder what could have been for the group.

    Blurred Lines: The Integration Of R&B In Hip-Hop
    Apr 2, 2014 at 03:50pm
    In the '90s the rap and R&B scenes had really emerged in to their own distinctiveness. The R&B scene was dominated by acts like Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah, SWV, Ginuwine, Mariah Carey, Brandy and Monica and many many more. Although frequently featured on hip-hop records singing the hook, artists of this genre were still able to maintain their soulful sound and be acknowledged as bonafide R&B acts. The general theme of R&B songs back then were the painful ups and downs of breakups, as well as the need for love. Same goes with hip-hop artists of that era.

    This is random enough. Ja Rule happened to take the exact same flight as his once arch-nemesis 50 Cent, and ended up in the same row as Fif also.  Ja tweeted about the coincidence, and it seems like no beef went down during the flight. "What are the chances me and 50 same flight same row no problems!!!" Ja tweeted out late last night.

    50 Cent has had his share of beefs in his career, but his feud with Ja Rule was one of the first high profile rivalries we saw from him. It was pretty clear from the outside 50 that came out on top, with the rapper rising to the top of the rap game, as Ja's relevance quickly waned. What wasn't evidently clear from this perspective was how Ja's deteriorating presence was directly tied to 50's power in the industry.

    Ashanti and Ja Rule were each responsible for more than a few early aughts hits, but nothing connected with audiences more than when they collaborated. Neither of the former-Murder Inc. artists have been very present on the charts for the last few years, partly to do with Ja Rule's recent bid in Prison.
