Ja Rule On If He’d Do A Verzuz Battle With 50 Cent: Everybody Don’t Want This Smoke
There’s no doubt about it, Verzuz battles have become a staple in the culture that will be around for quite some time. Fans of the battle platform often voice their opinions on who they believe would be the next best head-to-head competition, and New York rappers Ja Rule and 50 Cent have repeatedly been suggested. On the heels of Bay area legends E-40 and Too Short going toe to toe, Ja Rule is opening up about his thoughts on battling 50 Cent.
In an interview with HipHopDX, he shuts down the suggestion saying that it “ain’t gonna happen”. He stated,
“Man listen, everybody don’t want the smoke. Everybody don’t want this smoke. I got heat. Let me tell you something, when I do my shows, I can rock. I’m telling you, it’s like an hour of straight hit records. No filler. All crab meat… All meat in that crab cake. It’s all meat.
Ja Rule, who’s had a long-standing strife with 50 Cent, says he would want his Verzuz battle to look a little different, than say, the tension-filled Verzuz battle between Jeezy and Gucci Mane.

“Listen, man, I love Verzuz, I love what it is, I love to see artists getting in there and doing the sh*t, but if I did one, if I did do a Verzuz, I would want my Verzuz to be fun.”
He continued on,
“That’s what Verzuz is supposed to be about — the celebration of music and the art, and the artistry. So, I would want my Verzuz to be fun, and filled with love in the room and sh*t, and that sort of thing. I’m too old to be in Verzuz beef, and to be in with my team of n*ggas, all my team of n*ggas, we’re like, ‘Come on, man’. I’m 44, dog. Just get a boxing ring and we get in there, and we do that. All this other funny nutty sh*t, we ain’t doing that, man.”
