Ja Rule recently said that he’s here for battling his nemesis 50 Cent in one of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s “Verzuz” battles. During a recent Instagram Live session between Swizz Beatz and Fat Joe, Ja Rule was on speakerphone and confirmed that he wants “all the smoke.”

“Tell Ja, just get the 20. Send me the 20 [hit tracks]. We can take it from there,” Swizz Beatz said to Fat Joe during the conversation before Ja Rule was put on speakerphone.

“Listen, listen! Yo, Swizz! Yo Ja! Yo Ja! Yo Ja! We got millions of people listening. Don’t go back!” Fat Joe told Ja Rule during the conversation.

“Ja Rule said he loves hip-hop first and foremost and he wants to do this for the culture,” Fat Joe continued. “I want all the smoke!” Ja Rule then said over speakerphone.

In true form, 50 Cent responded to Ja Rule’s challenge with a snarky gif and meme. The gif that 50 Cent posted was of himself pulling off in a car.
