Could Lil Wayne Have Ja Rule’d 50 Cent?

Think about it. The opportunity was there. Now, whether Wayne could have pulled it off is an entirely different story.

The thing is, as big as Wayne’s buzz was last year, when Fif started baiting him, I don’t think any of us knew, him included, knew how big it was. Sure, some of you will front now that the numbers are in, but with Kanye West moving 957,000 copies off that 9/11 buzz (bigger in my opinion), I doubt anyone projected Wayne to do “A Millie” when his turn finally came.

When Wayne’s first week numbers first came out, one of my friends joked, “50 you were the man, homie. What the fuck happened to you?” For some reason, I think folks would have gotten a kick out of Wayne using that line. Imagine if Wayne clowned Fif in a similar way, waited for Fif’s response and then unleash the onslaught. Who knows what could have happened?

The thing is Fif began baiting Wayne during a vulnerable stage. “Straight To The Bank” and “Amusement Park” had just bricked and the 50/G-Unit backlash was at an all-time high. Meanwhile, Wayne could seemingly do no wrong. And having Kanye West (the no.1 human being in music) co-sign, couldn’t have hurt either. Fif wasn’t in Ja shape last year. Rule was just free falling at the time. I’m pretty sure he would have faded on his own, Fif just expedited the process.

But, using his momentum and Fif’s backlash, Wayne had absolute potential for damage. The thing is, I don’t think he’s that wise. I mean, dude didn’t even get Jay-Z‘s “Dr. Carter” for God’s sake. I don’t think he has what it takes to go in on record and then launch an attack to move somebody out of the game. Given the same platform, somebody like Jay or Nas could have really hurt Fif. Looking back at records like “Backdown,” Fif didn’t really ether Ja lyrically. He just merked him with all the extra curricular show pranks and interview jabs. Plus, he didn’t let up. I doubt Wayne has enough off syrup time to stay on somebody’s ass. Then again, maybe he does. But bottom line, there’s no way Fif would have let himself go down and he probably would have hurt Wayne in the process. I guess Wayne had too much to lose. Maybe he was at least smart enough to know that and fell back. Could Wayne have Ja Ruled 50? Absolutely not. Could he have hurt 50′s career. Hmmmm, I wanna say no. But then again, I didn’t think dude would sell a million either. –Jackpot

        Sales aint shit,to real Fans..

        People waiting on that Lil Wayne record for years!It was a pop album.. Soulja Boy sold, so did Nelly,Ludacris,Chingy etc..

        So what is the writer of this shit saying? Soulja Boy & Chingy could kill off 50′s career?
        If The Game didn’t do it to them,then no one is..

    this makes absolutely no sense……people sure love hatin on 50

    • Pierzy

      What’s good, Jackpot? I think Wayne could’ve done some damage for sure. Just like all the people that were feelin’ Ja back in 2000 suddenly started clownin’ him in ’02-’03, the new Weezy nation (and I’m not a fan of Wayne at all) could’ve turned right around and shit on 50 for being old news. For whatever reason, people listen to and follow Wayne and if he would’ve tried to merck Fif, even in a slurred, drug-induced state, it might’ve worked.

  • Rob the Music Ed

    Nah Wayne could’nt have ethered 50. The fact of the matter is Wayne as dope as he has been during the past few years, isn’t battle-tested.

    50 on the other hand got the art of war down-pact! Granted it doesnt have everything to do with Curtis’ lyrics- I mean look at what he did to Buck and he didn’t even have to say a line.

  • og bobby j

    the thing is…ja had no credibility. 50, like him or not, does. Ask Smurf…or domination…the cats that he would run wit…they will tell you he aint no punk. Plus, 50 bread too long….evenin ja’s peak…he wasnt cakin like 50. Lil wayne did the smart thing…he didnt follow the steak into the lions den.

    Plus, you seen how them cats clowed fat joe with that photoshop shit…..imagine the fun with wayne’s man kissin ways

    • one

      who cares about some photoshop shit it was fake and thats not hip hop. hip hop is about the music and 50′s music fell off after his first album like it or not regardless of what he has sold. having the most money doesnt equal being the best rapper, ask puffy.

      • og bobby j

        son…im saying that money and position within the industry plays a role in the beef. I never said fif was the best rapper..i said he had more credibilty then wayne…

    ” Could Lil Wayne Have Ja Ruled 50 Cent?”

    Southerners don’t have to time or care enough to hate on somebody to that degree. Wayne chooses to stay in his own lane ignor haters and that’s why he wins.

    • Rizob

      EXACTLY! We don’t hate for the sake of just hating, we do our own thing. We too busy counting our own money to count somebody else’s. And if you look at Wayne’s track record (Gillie, Hot Boys, Mixtape DJs etc) he really doesnt give any shine to those who are dissing him, he just let it slide, and let tha other shit die out. see how stupid Gillie look right now, and Wayne didn’t even go in on him.

      • HAWAIIAN

        but seriously, who the fuck is Gillie anyway.

        Wayne aint touchin Jay, Fifty or Nas.

        when Nelly and Chingy sold big, aint nobody saying shit like “aww man, Nelly is a BEAST, he the GOAT, he better than Jay, he sold x amount of records blah blah fuckin blah” so why are people saying this about Wayne.

        Lil Wayne = Wack pop/rap star mk 54607

        • Rizob

          dude, if you think 50 Cent is a good rapper, then your opinion is str8 Casper the friendly Ghost. Just cause Wayne is selling like a pop star, don’t negate the fact he put himself on this level by rapping. no bells and whistles, no fake made up beef (like 50), no bullshit. This nigga been rappin on countless beats, and on countless mixtapes for years. he didn’t just blow up overnight….

        • HAWAIIAN

          nah brah, im not signing off on 50, im just speaking on heavyweights in the game

        • Anthony

          People need to quit putting fifty up with nas and jay he is with nelly and chingy as a rapper who sold alot but is a product of mtv

  • DevilintheFlesh

    I think he played it smart by keeping it moving.

    “Stop Hatin/ that is a weak emotion”.

    50′s time is bout up as a rapper. Once somebody gets that rich the public kinda loses interest in that “get rich or die trying” mentality.

  • http://xxlmag.com Huh?

  • 239allday

    Wayne’s buzz was definitley bigger than Kanye’s buzz last year. The nigga wayne been bubbling since 06′ year with dedication 2. But I don’t think Wayne gives a fuck when it comes to hip hop beef, like when gillie and/or willie the squid was gettin at dude. Or even when Juve and B.G. was gettin at him.

  • MB

    Why all the hate against Wayne. Could it be because of his financial situation and the units he’s moving. It seems to me that everytime someone that is not from the EAST is getting money, the hip-hop is dead talk begins or the “that’s not real hip hop music” talk begins. All rappers who are not moving units should stop hating. It is not a good look. Allow these young boys to rap about whatever they want to rap about. If the consumer likes it, SO BE IT! If you don’t like it, DON’T LISTEN! It’s that simple.

        • Black

          Thanks for proving my point. First off nigga I wasn’t comparing record sales to what 50 has done in the past. I liked 50 back in the day before he started puttin out garbage. What I was saying right now, besides Kanye, the South is the only area selling records and yall still hatin on us.

    • Rex Banner

      I think hes talking about when weezy was on 106 and park and he was talking about the collabo with jay-z and jay-z said something about wayne being his heir and wayne thought he was talking about being fly like air or something but he was talking about jay saying he was the heir to his throne

      • yoprince

        that shit was hilarious.. i was like “wayne, WTF?”

    • mcphly

      The song is “Mr.Carter”. Jay rhymes go harder, go further, go farther, if that is not why we came, then why bother?

      My take on it…Jay pretty much said dont waste time if your not trying to take it past my level. At the end of Hov’s verse, he mentioned taking so much change from this rap…that its Waynes go. Jay wants to pass it to him, but do not want him to drop the ball.

      Jay has taken hip hop to so many levels….who could be next? Owning clubs, teams, brands, and having a great business sense.

  • Shawn Blaze

    50 Cent is worldwide he does tours in Africa…Lil’ Wayne does 40,000 dollar club dates in Owensboro KY (which is where he was May 27th)…..Owensboro, seriously. Wayne does records with anyone with $ 40,000 to 50,000…50 on the other hand 50 doesn’t collab with alot of people and if he does they have a major record deal…Bottom line like him or hate him it’s very hard to touch 50…his networth is like 400 million.

    • Rizob

      Everyone can agree 50 got money, the point people are trying to make is that he is a terrible rapper. Im judging on ability, not bank accounts. Wayne blew up by rapping, 50 blew up on smoke and mirrors.

    Lil’ Wayne is an openly gay drug addict. That’s enough ammo for anyone, including 50, to work with.

  • http://xxlmag.com Philly215

    wayne can’t Ja’Rule 50 because 50 has to much money and plus the only reason Ja’Rule got Ja’Ruled was because 50 had niggas backing him like eminem,Dr.Dre, and Busta Rhymes and plus 50 has a largely suburban and overseas fanbase so that wouldn’t happen

  • DETROIT

    50 is killing his own career…the quickest way to destroy him is to ignore him. without “beef” he has nothing to rap about. everything 50 has put out has sold a lot less than its predicessor, since GRODT! give him like 2 more years, he’ll be gone. the thing is this, 50 has no “swag” (peep how unconfortable he looks around the women and candyshop), he’s not lyrical, and his song concepts are lackluster (ex. “I STILL KILL”). Give him some time, he’ll ether himself.

  • AZ40

    Maybe he could have b/c his fans and hip hop gives this guy a pass on everything…Being molested by Baby from childhood to adulthood(and liking it), shooting himself, first swag jacking the Clipse look(bathing ape) then Jim Jones(Rock Star), saying things then bitching up and taking them back the next day, and babble punchlines on a track like no one else can or has done it before…So yeah the lack of caring what this nigga does gives him the advantage

    Jackpot,

    Fif is strong whether he’s not strong. He has too much money so if it got on a street level he’d get spanked. As far as lyrics go, wayne has been rappin since he was what 9? 10? Signed by 11? He better have some type of lyrical edge otherwise he’s the NO Yung Berg…

    Rob,

    Just a comment. While I think wayne might be on to somethin with his sales, he needs to fall back and stay back. You have to understand, while Fif doesn’t always win lyrical battles, he wins wars. He got Game dropped off Interscope, and while Styles was there pushed back his shit and caused all kinds of panic in the offices. His consistency, as well as other reasons are why this guy has been around damn near ten years now solid. Btw, TOS is a banger and if it is really Curtis Jackson Park, Preme and everyone lost.

    To everyone else that says he’s not lyrical, you need to listen to Sincerely Yours again. While I don’t agree with his song selection all the time on his big records…he has a knack for makin not only hit songs, but dude puts in work on stage. That’s why he’s a huge concert draw overseas. THank you for your time. One.

  • DETROT

    another thing is, you never want to get into a rap battle with a new york nigga! they grow up on that, that’s part of their culture. it’s easier for alot of ny cats to make a battle rap than it is for them to make a song. Think about it, could you picture lil wayne making a classic diss record? The only classic diss records that didn’t come out of the east were “Dollars and sense” by quik, and 300 bars by game.

    Lastly, i’m sick of hearing, “50′s bread…..”. who knows how much that man has, don’t listen to what HE SAYS. evaluate shit for yourself and draw your own conclusions! for instance, YAYO’S WHOLE FAMILY STILL LIVES IN THE HOOD! HIM AND BUCK ARE ARGUING OVER $200,000! HE SAID, IN HIS TAPED CONVO, YAYO AND BANKS MADE $100000 THE WHOLE TIME THEY WERE IN EUROPE. AND GLACEU, THE COMPANY THAT OWNS VITAMIN WATER, SAID THAT 50 DID’T OWN A PART OF THEIR COMPANY! THEY SAID THAT HE GETS A %AGE OFF HIS DRINK, AND THAT’S THAT.

    not to mention, his child support payments are 25gs per month. Diddy pays like 25gs, per child, per month (he has 4 kids).

    don’t sleep people. not saying that he’s not caked up, cuz he is. just saying that he is in no way “old money”, he can go broke just as fast as the next rapper!

  • http://www.incilin.blogspot.com Incilin

    As usual, the point your making is intriguing yet non-sequitur; dude already sold a mille. I could understand if Wayne had did weak numbers and you were suggesting that ethering 50 would have increased his sales, but Waynes sales really can’t get any higher. But unlike 50, Wayne doesn’t seem to need beef to sell records and Wayne has avoided beef in the past while 50 has welcomed it.

    Plus your forgetting 50 had a vested interest in seeing Ja Rule flop. 50 really really hates Ja Rule as a person. While 50 and Wayne don’t really know each other, so they aint as “inspired” to get at one another.

    And even if Wayne did take the bait dude has never shown much tenacity to battle. His songs are so unfocused and random I can imagine him dissing 50 in one line and discussing lean in the next. And 50 doesn’t kill you in the verses, he gets you in the ad-libs.

    • Dub Sac

      “And even if Wayne did take the bait dude has never shown much tenacity to battle. His songs are so unfocused and random…”

      Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe if Wayne could stay on topic, it would turn into a battle, but if Weezey did try, he’d probably just start muttering his usual word permutations and end up talking about spaceships or tomatoes again.

  • YG Stanley

    G-Unit is turning into the Death Row of the 2K’s. 50 is Suge, Buck is dre (See ya), Banks is Snoop (?), and Yayo is M.C. Hammer. Okay maybe that was a bad analogy but you get the point.

  • Jerod

    Ya’ll are crackheads if you think 50 has ANYthing on Wayne. Dude is baiting him because 50 NEEDS Wayne to acknowledge him. The only people making moves are the ones Wayne acknowledges. Look at Tyga… who the fuck was he before Wayne, and dude can’t even rap that well. And no, Wayne isn’t gonna take the bait because he has no need for it. “No beef in my grocery bag/Just a couple swishers and a can of whoopass.” Seriously. Ever notice how the only thing really reported in rap is beef? It’s because it makes each party more money. And Wayne doesn’t need it. ooo aaa 50cent. com. Really, I’m gonna make a website because nobody pays attention to me.

When that movie came out it was pretty much a wrap for anyone and anything trying to end his his career. And we all know beef with Wayne would have just added to T.O.S album sales. Let’s be real.

    And how the fuck didn’t you think Wayne wouldn’t sale a million? I can’t believe you are shocked at a million. Dude has done a song with everyone in the game except Gunit. EVERYONE.

    Why would Wayne benefit from taking out Nas. 50 took out Ja because they had pre-exisiting beef. Irv tried to block the man from getting on because of street beef chain snatching and all. 50 went in on him to make an example and since everyone loves to see someone crushed they cheered the winner.

    And why are ya’ll pole jocking wayne like this. Wayne can’t do what 50 does. 50 is a business man and wayne is a performer. Wayne don’t really even own himself nomatter what he is supposed to be the ceo of. His Daddy and slim own him. 50 makes moves with TI’s just like jigga does.

    You mutha fuckas need to open your fucking eyes!!! These are the same capitalistic niggas!!! When 50 1st came out niggas was LOVIN 50!!! You couldn’t find another nigga as hot…6yrs later Wayne is the new 50!!! Nigga with a gimmick and a small support system. 50 had Em and Dre, Wayne got his “Daddy” (If that shit aint gay I dont know what is!!!) Actually, ya’ll cant seriously say Lil Wayne might not like niggas, think about the shit. What straight grown ass man do you know calls another grown ass man of no blood relation “DADDY” and kisses the mutha fucka on the MOUTH!!! HOW DID THIS SHIT JUST GET SWEPT UNDER THE RUG, HE IS GAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Clever

    Why Wayne is just a Fade.

    1. He kissed Baby in the Mouth, No Grown Man kisses another Grown Man in the Mouth.

    2. Don’t he have a GhostWriter? Gille Da Kid, or is it Currency?

    3. Mixtapes so what! I take Quality over Quanity any day!

    4. He’s not Hood, He’s Gay ( From #1)

    • Rizob

      Wow “Clever” let me give you a rubutal and try to educate you at the same time…

      1. How the hell does a person that puts out so much material have a fucking ghostwriter, Gillie had nothing to do with that mans lyrics, he was spitting the same way on all the SQ Mixtapes b4 Gillie was even in the Cash Money picture. and what has Gillie done since? This nigga 35 trying to put out a debut album, if he can write hot shit for someone else, why the fuck can he not make a hot song. PLEASE, let that nicca die. I never wanna here Gillie’s name brought up again, no one believes him anymore.

      2. What does “hood” have to do with anything, you shouldn’t care whether someone is “hood” or not, it should be about talent and talent alone. Lupe isn’t “hood” but he can rap circles around any “hood” nicca you can name.

      3. and the word you’re lookin for is “fad” not “fade” dumbass, ignorant ass, young ass nicca.

      but i don’t condone kissing a nigga in the mouth, that shit is gay! lol

      • Clever

        yep that is Gay, but i’m not ignorant, get Lil wayne’s dick out cha mouth. Nigga ain’t giving you none of that money. Why you on his Dick. You might as well have a Threesome wit ya boi and his Daddy. Bitch Nigga! bitching cause you Fake and Gay just like him. Lil Gay’Gay’ supporter. LOL! Nigga acting like he so hood, and ain’t. I’m pretty the rest of Cash Money vouch for that. Nigga get off his Dick, Nigga wasn’t nearly that nice on any of his Early Albums, GHOSTWRITER, thats why. When BIGGIE came into the game, he was already there with skillz first album Classic. Jay-z first album Classic. Think about that OutKast First Album Classic. Ya Boi Overrated.

        • looselipssinkships

          Maybe because his first album came out when he was 15-16 yo. I’m sure with age his vocabulary has grown therefor so has his lyrical content GENIUS. People grow alot from 16 to 26 don’t ya think?Nicca has payed his dues and it’s about f-in time he gets his,ya heard? Fifty pennies time has come and gone, it’s time to retire and marry tony gay-o, yeah and don’t forget 50 on that coke sh*t too, check the youtube.

  • Clever

    Lil’Wayne and 50 Cent getting Married Soon. LOL!

  • kong

    MAN ITZ ABOUT DA UNIT….

    50 CENT

  • http://www.myspace.com two fangaz

    hip hop is about the music and 50’s music fell off after his first album like it or not regardless of what he has sold. having the most money doesnt equal being the best rapper, ask puffy.
    Thanx one!
    Aint that the fuckin truth…lol ask puffy hell yeah ask puffy he gonna say bad boy baby take that take that and do some kinda motorcycle or 2 step lol…

    Wayne doing the right thing. He staying in his own lane and making his money. The Carter III was pretty much garbage except for 2 songs. Fifty has a catalogue of hits and he is from NYC, the Big Apple. Plus Fif is big internationally. Lil Wayne is only popular in America. He hasn’t caught on really in Europe or Asia. Maybe he might now, but I doubt it.

    Wayne might be good at rapping about nothing, but can he stay on topic for a whole song rapping about one person on a personal level? Probably not. And he would have to keep going and going until he took that person out the game completely. Guys like Fif, Nas, or Jay don’t stop until you are over. They cancel each other out, but other cats who aren’t gonna go the extra mile will get destroyed. Wayne is trying to be a rock icon on some other shit. Good for him.

  • daaamn

    The truth is that Wayne couldve hurt 50s career back then. Definately not put him out the game though. As was stated earlier by Rob 50 is good at warfare tactics. But on that same token he’s self destructive. Even as we speak hes packing his bags cuz hip hop is givin him the boot. Dont matter how much paper he gots just like Master P. All these tactics jabbin at TI and Wayne etc etc are moves made out of desperation. The court of public opinion is a fickle one and theyre sick of 50. Later they’ll turn on Wayne to though. Thats the nature of the game now days.

  • NIG

    WORLD WIDE 50 CENT IS A MUCH BIGGER ARTIST THAN EVEN JAY-Z…..WYANE IS HOT BUT COME ON WE ALL KNOW IT 50 CENT IS A HOUSEHOLD NAME IN COUNTRIES WE NEVER HEARD OF……FACT.

    • makaveli1671

      Fuck 50 too. That garbage he just dropped with the unit is so wack all i can say is whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa….!lol. That nigga got a lot of nerve making a video 4 that shit. & what type of x u on NIG? 50 a bigger artist than jay? 50 cent is like a jealous bitch who cant stand nobody getting more attention than him. And I just heard a song from nas called mc burial where he go hard on 50 and his granny! 50 is over cuz wake up and smell the house burning down.

  • Maddolies

    Wayne Doesnt Need 2 Resort 2 Childish Tactics Like Curtis. Lets Be Real 50 Hasnt Won Any Beefs Since Ja. Wayne Wouldve Won Cause Everyone Hates 50 Now. 50′s The New Ja Rule. How People Still Support Him And Buy His Garbage Music Is Mind Boggling. Hell Id Rather Buy A Fat Joe Album Than an Album By Curtis. Okay Maybe Not That Low But u get the point.

  • Big Wilie

    YO…This Beef Shits Wack…All of em a bunch a Women…See how they acting…Remember King T…Act A Fool…What..And Kanye He Doin His Thing.. He got Them models…But Ya’ll Dudes Like my man who wrote this blog,need ta get off kanyes Dick. Yo.. Detroit Playas All Day Nigga..

  • Mr Me Too

    No your right maddolies.. he doesn’t have to go to fifs level,
    He’s to busy tongue kissing birdman.

  • snakeyes

    Reading the comments on hear I keep reading comments saying 50 can not rap. I ask,”are really listening to his cds or the tracks that he is on with other rappers”. The answer has to be no. So many people hate on dude because he has money he is not real. What he said about T.I., Wayne, Buck, Fat Joe, Nas and others made since everytime he went at them. And I am not a Fan of 50 I
    am a fan of good music. Hiphop has changed people like to buy albums that has 10 features out of 16 tracks. That’s not talent sure anyone can do two verses. Rappers like Scareface, Hov, Nas, 50, Styles P, and Jada does 16 bars on 16 tracks. Honestly, how many features on Wayne’s album. Forget a beat listen to the lyrics.

  • AVENGER XL

    Yo Snake eyes
    The question isn’t can 50 rap but is he above average. The answer to that is no let’s bust it down.

    subject matter: Guns,Hoes,Cars street talk that you are no longer involved and when you where it was such a petty level that you were just a shit stain in the game. So subject appeals to wanna be hard bodys, ignorant hood folks, Suburban white kids(i.e. the TRL pop crowd) basicly just your usual pop loving suspects.

    Appeal: 50 sells records based on the image and lifestlye he sells not on his true ability. Most of his camp ain’t saying shit and Yayo is a bland as memph bleek it is like place vanilla(meaning lack of character or charisma aka boring) NY rapper here or something.

    Smart Business man: No question look under appeal 50 knows how to work with the TI’s to keep getting money and he is a smart dude I don’t expect him to go broke. But skill wise he is average at best and mostly because he don’t give a shit anymore he has a lane and a formula now. Your dopest die hard emcee would kill for the money 50 pays for his lawn care.

  • jfoxgotraps

    if you were the bully in school you probably like 50. If you were bullied you probably dont like fif. He bullys these lames some like it some hate it. I love it.
