50 states Ja just trying to get promotion

Posted By on November 20, 2003

He certainly isn’t the first to point it out, but 50 Cent recently told MTV “I feel [Ja’s interview with Farrakhan] was a promotional stunt. When I sat there and I was watching it, in the middle of it, the break comes and here comes a commercial for his album. His album actually came out seven hours later. That wasn’t an attempt to bring any type of peace. You hear the records that are being released at the same time on the street, I can’t see you putting that out and you feeling the same way you say you felt with Minister Farrakhan.”

What many people were quick to point out was that Ja’s latest album is overflowing with disses to 50 Cent, which refuted everything he said to Farrakhan. “I’m not stuck on him. I just made an entire album and didn’t mention him. I gotta move on,” 50 continued. “If you pick up his album, it’s about 10 references [to me] on 10 of the songs. The success I’m having is eating at him.”

Aside from having no interest in sitting down with Ja, 50 claims their attempt to include him in the talk with Farrakhan was insincere. “When they set up the time to have that meeting, I wasn’t notified until that meeting was already in progress,” 50 explained. “[Murder Inc.] was already in Chicago when they reached out to me. It wasn’t planned for me to be there until after the fact.”
