50 Cent buys up Ja Rule tickets to leave empty seats

US rapper 50 Cent reportedly purchased 200 tickets to Ja Rule’s upcoming concert so that “the front row can be empty.”

The pair have had a well documented rivalry that dates back to the 1990s, with both artists hailing from Queens, New York.

50 Cent reportedly purchased the tickets on Groupon for the November 9 gig in Arlington, Texas, spending upwards of $3,000, multiple reports suggest. 

50 Cent revealed his antics with an Instagram post, which has since been deleted, showing a Photoshopped image of himself sitting among empty seats in what appears to be an arena.

He said: “People think I’m mean so go see this. $15 bucks. Wait what I do now lol,” he wrote. “I just bought 200 seats in the front row so they can be empty LOL.”

Ja Rule responded in a Tweet, saying: “I get under @50cent skin… — I love it!!!”

He also posted multiple photos of 50 dressed in a woman’s wig and make-up.
