In a feud that has spanned nearly 20-years, 50 Cent has thrown the last, but far from the final punch. The rapper took to Instagram to claim that he has purchased 200 of the best seats for an upcoming Ja-Rule concert just to leave them empty. 

“People think I’m mean so go see this. $15 bucks wait what I do now LOL,” he captioned on Instagram, to a since-deleted photo of the tickets being sold on Groupon. 

Apparently, Groupon was selling tickets to a Ja Rule and Ashanti concert for just $15 a pop, a true bargain for anyone who listened to the radio in 2002. Recognizing a hell of a good deal, 50 Cent posted to Instagram, saying that he bought 200 of the early row tickets so he could leave them empty. In case we couldn’t visualize his trolling, 50 provided a helpfully Photoshopped rendering.

“LOL Damn Boy you put on a hell of a show. get the strap,” he captioned the first photo.

He then went on to follow that up with, “What a show, I mean just f**king great. Do it again my kid went to the restroom. LOL.”

200 tickets at $15 each would mean that 50 Cent—who, though Vitaminwater and bitcoin rich, just paid off more than $22 million to settle a bankruptcy case last year—paid a total of $3000 to pour fuel on a beef that’s nearly old enough to be a college sophomore.

The rappers’ beef spans around the 15 year mark, but neither of them agree on what started it.

According to Rolling Stone, 50 Cent says Ja Rule, aka Jeffrey Atkins, falsely accused him of stealing his jewellery, bringing it to the attention of Irv Gotti, the founder of Murder Inc. Records.

Atkins however says the tension started after they shot a video together in their hometown of Queens, New York.

Allegedly, 50 Cent felt disrespected by how his fellow rapper greeted him on the shoot, which led to multiple diss records, before escalating from there.

TMZ caught up with Ashanti at LAX, where she told the cameraman that 50 was a straight-up bully. 

“Officer Curtis better cut it out,” she said with a laugh. “I mean it’s obvious [the concert was canceled]… it was a lack of promotion. The school put out a statement to clarify it was a lack of promotion and, you know, they shouldn’t have never did it. So, you know, no hard feelings. Thank-you so much – Curtis is definitely a bully.”

Ja Rule isn’t too happy about the gag, and has fired back. Sadly, he’s not as creative as 50, he’s resorted to lame photoshop memes:
