50 Cent Ridicules Ja Rule, Vows To Lift Curse He Placed On Timberwolves

When Ja Rule performed at a Minnesota Timberwolves halftime show in 2019, he had no idea that his rival 50 Cent would hold it against him four years later. Moreover, the Get Rich Or Die Tryin' MC recently uploaded a video celebrating his recent partnership with the Minnesota Timberwolves. In it, he visits their office spaces, talks with executives, and displays his excitement for his spirits collaboration. However, he also took a moment to address that Ja Rule performance in Milwaukee against the Bucks. If there's anything history taught us between these two, it's that Fif always finds a way to dunk on Ja- and vice versa, at least in attempt.

"We had a curse!" 50 Cent told the franchise's staff. "Somebody f***ed up, and they let Ja Rule perform at halftime. Now, what we’re gonna do is take the curse off!” Then, a clip of Rule addressing an unenthused crowd played on one of the staff member's screens (it was edited in). "Skip, this might be worse than Fyre Festival," Shannon Sharpe remarks to his partner Bayless about the Murder Inc. rapper's infamous failed festival.

50 Cent Promises To Lift Ja Rule's Curse On The Minnesota Timberwolves

Furthermore, readers may remember the halftime show in question, for which Ja got immediately clowned online. What's more is that the curse that 50 referred to isn't just the "curse" of a laughable performance or comical moment. In fact, the fellow Queens rapper and G-Unit's longtime opponent cursed the team while responding to a fan on Twitter. With that, it seemed almost too perfect for 50 to swoop in one day and, if the Timberwolves get amazing from here on out, it would be a massive flex on his sworn enemy.

"You just jinx yourself talking to the GOD this way…" Ja Rule wrote to a critical Minnesota fan. "Your CURSED NOW!!! You won’t win a championship for the next 30 years… AND KAT IS LEAVING!!! Apologise and I’ll lift the CURSE!!! Kiss of death…" Now the stakes are even higher in 50 Cent's beef with the "Always On Time" MC: there's a championship at stake. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on Ja Rule, 50 Cent, and their legendary beef.
