50 Cent claims to have bought 200 upfront seats for an upcoming Ja Rule concert, with plans to leave them empty when the date comes around. The move is part of a long-running feud between the two rappers over, I don’t know, whatever.

Sneaky tyke Fiddy initially pretended to hold out an olive branch. Posting a screengrab of a Groupon deal for the show at Arlington Backyard as part of the Texas Live festival next month, he wrote: “People think I’m mean, so go see this”. Noting the low ticket price, he added: “$15 [quizzical emoji]. Wait, what [do] I do now [shrugging emoji] LOL”.

Subsequently claiming to have snapped up a bunch of those bargain priced tickets, he posted an image of a mocked up news article announcing that he had bought “200 front row seats to Ja Rule concert so it will be empty”.

He then followed this with a crudely Photoshopped picture of himself sitting at the front of a bank of empty seats, writing underneath: “What a show, I mean just fucking great. Do it again! My kid went to the restroom. LOL”.

Just to reiterate, the show hasn’t actually happened yet. It’s scheduled for 9 Nov. And there’s no actual sign that 50 Cent really did buy those tickets. Either way, Ja Rule thought it was funny. “I get under [50 Cent’s] skin”, he tweeted. “I love it!”
