Not everyone’s here for the rap beef.

Ja Rule took to X over the weekend to share his opinions about recent events.

“The industry at war...” he mused. In a follow-up tweet, he wrote, “20V1 I can relate 🤣,” a nod to Drake’s diss record, “Push Ups,” aimed at Kendrick Lamar, Metro Boomin, and Future.

“What the fuck is this, a 20 v. one, n***a?” Drizzy raps in the song’s first verse.

Later, a fan circled back on Ja Rule’s “20V1” comment, writing, "They said @50cent had ja rule seeing 20,” an obvious reference to the “Always on Time” rapper’s long-seated beef with Fif.

Ja responded, “🤣 [G-Unit] literally had an ORDER OF PROTECTION against murder Inc… can you imagine if one of the camps in this beef right now put an order of protection on the other 🤣🤣🤣.”

Ja Rule alluded to a restraining order 50 was rumored to have filed against Murder Inc. in 2002 after Fif was stabbed outside the Hit Factory in New York in 2000. According to Capital Xtra, the police issued the order of protection 50 Cent’s behalf.
