Ja Rule replies to 50 Cent after jokes about his UK tour

Ja Rule and 50 Cent have had a long-running feud. However, The former (real name Jeffrey Atkins) recently fired back at Fifty after the ‘In Da Club’ emcee mocked him about his failure to go on tour in the UK.

On February 27th, Atkins revealed that the UK leg of his SUnrise tour may not go forward as he was facing issues with securing a visa. The UK trek was set to begin on March 1st.

Unsurprisingly, 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) seized the opportunity to highlight Ja Rule’s shortfall and mock him. Underneath a screenshot of the news, Jackson wrote, “Hahahahahaha I did not have nothing to do with this bitch not getting in. LOL.”

In another Instagram post, which featured a screenshot of Ja Rule’s explanation for why the tour couldn’t go ahead, 50 alluded to it having something to do with him, writing, “LMAO. I got juice all over the place sucker!”

Ja Rule responded to Jackon’s post on Twitter/X writing, “@50cent N*gga you pussy shut up…” Atkins’ explained to his fans that e had been denied a visa for the tour because of his criminal convictions in the US. He then unveiled he had lost money as a result.

Talking about the sacrifices of touring independently, Atkins wrote, “I’m so devastated I can’t believe the UK won’t let me in. I’ve spent a half million dollars in production of my own money to put this tour together only to be denied entry DAYS before my shows this is not fair to me or my fans. These venues are 85% sold, and now I can’t come.”

He specified the UK laws surrounding touring, and how it sets itself apart from other European countries, explaining, “The UK is one of the few European countries that restricts entry to people with criminal records. In general, you will likely be denied entry if you have been convicted of a crime punishable by 23 months or more under British law or served more than 12 months in prison.”

Atkins had shows scheduled in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Cardiff, Dublin and Glasgow, to name a few and was set to be joined by acts such as singers Keri Hilson, Lloyd and Mya.
