Melle Mel weighed in on the beef between Ja Rule and 50 Cent and accused Ja of copying Fif.
“A lot of rappers could be better rappers if they stopped rapping like everybody else. What is it that you need to say? You could be the n-gga that made a song about a pool party, but you f-cked around and listened to Meek Mill and went and you f-cked around and did some dumb sh-t. It’s just like when 50 Cent was doing this sh-t and then when Ja Rule and that was probably one of his last big records.”
The beef between the rappers has been going on for almost two decades…but many believe 50 ended Ja’s career.
He continued: “If he woulda just made that record a pure New York record, it would have been a way bigger record. But he went the route of trying to sound hard because 50 Cent sound hard. And it was still a good record but I’m just saying, if he woulda just made it a pure New York record like how Jay-Z did with his New York record. See what I’m saying? If he woulda went along the same lines as that. So the point…saying is that consciousness does have its place in Hip Hop, but everybody is too scared about not being hard. And that’s the destruction of the whole game.”
Y’all agree with his opinion?
