Although 50 Cent was completely dormant in 2006, people were heavily anticipating his 2007 comeback album, Curtis, fueled by its release date rivalry against Kanye West's Graduation. After Fiddy lost the battle, both commercially and critically, he pretty much became a has-been. "Ayo Technology" was a top 5 hit, but it plummeted down the charts really quickly, and nothing else from Curtis came anywhere close. Aside from a guest spot on Eminem's "Crack a Bottle" in early 2009, 50 Cent had lost commercial relevance, as his brand of thug rap had pretty much died after "Ridin'" in 2006 and had its fate sealed when Curtis flopped.

In Da Club is notable because, in the eyes of many, it's the song that killed off the late 90s-holdover style of music for good and really brought us fully into the 00s.

When it comes to who was bigger, that's tough because BOTH of them were HUGE.

Ja Rule had "Mesmerize" and "Always on Time" with Ashanti. He also had collabs with J-Lo, Fat Joe and Jay-Z. Also, Ja Rule did appear in The Fast and the Furious (2001).

G Unit is still around. In fact, Buck rejoined them. I remember how big they were. While everyone was singing "Go shawty it's ya birthday", I was rapping along to "Wanksta". I much preferred it over "In Da Club". But I had both Get Rich Or Die Tryin' and The Massacre. Two great albums. Also I had other G Unit CD's. Well in 2006 I stopped paying attention to Rap and Hip-Hop so I don't know even an 1/8 of songs released from anybody beyond that point. So I haven't heard any of Fiddy's latest work. But back then, I like to call it a heyday, he was on top of his game. I liked Ja's old music too. But if you ask me who I pick in the beef it's G Unit cause they work with Dre and I was always more into West Coast rap. Though Fiddy is actually East Coast. But I was a fan of Dre so. But also, Ja was trying to be 2Pac and he was no Pac. So I like "Holla" and some other songs but I never cared for him.

50 Cent (Became) more popular by 2003. He had that badassery appeal behind him. Ja Rule kind of damaged him self once he got into beefs that changed his image. By 03, Ja Rule basically finished his run.

Artists passing their peak can really bring feels to the heart. 50 Cent extended him self to the late 2000s, by then, you could tell his time was long since complete. Baby By Me was a nice farewell hit that honestly make me cry in a sense.

He fell from music in a badass fashion though. A lot of artists don't get to do this.

Shaun's right, though. Between Me and You was a huge hit in 2000; I remember hearing that song everywhere.


It was EVERYWHERE in 6th grade, for me. ::)  ::)  ::)  ::)  ::)

I graduated HS before that song became a hit but I used to hear it on the radio quite a bit. :P Was definitely a top 40 song, too. So was Holla Holla and I was still in school for that one.

Ja Rule was really popular from in 2000 and 2001. I don't know much about him, but I remember him being really popular during those two years.  8)  8)  :D

In some sense, yeah. He was featured on Can I Get A... but it wasn't until 1999 that he broke out as his own thing.

I honestly wonder how did 50 Cent blow out Ja Rule. Both of them were equally great during their prime.

UltraGameDog is correct. My name is Shawn NOT Shaun or Sean.

Well, that was a mistake. DMX kept his career while Ja Rule ended up going into the bushes. You know what's funny though? Both of them were equally popular in the early 00s although DMX was there first with Ruff Ryders.

Yep, both DMX and Ja Rule were big back then. It was a complete failure on Ja Rule's part.

Another thing that caused his popularity decline is that he declined to reprise his role as Edwin from 2001's The Fast and the Furious because he thought that he was "too big" for 2003's 2 Fast 2 Furious. Instead, that role ended up going to another huge early '00s rapper....none other than, Ludacris. Look where Ludacris is now. Ja Rule is a damn fool ;D.

Damn. Ja Rule made the wrong choices back then, and top of that, he went to prison for some time as well.

Artists passing their peak can really bring feels to the heart. 50 Cent extended him self to the late 2000s, by then, you could tell his time was long since complete. Baby By Me was a nice farewell hit that honestly make me cry in a sense.

He fell from music in a badass fashion though. A lot of artists don't get to do this.

He sold like 40 billion records and people forgot what he did.  ;D

I think it's like Kevin said about 50 Cent looking tougher and being more "gangsta." Ja Rule did a lot of songs like I'm Real which are more... uh... "sensitive" (for lack of a better word) songs.


I thought his name was spelled with a W as in Shawn.

At least I didn't pick out a totally different name from out of the blue! Sorry, regardless. :P

I'd say it was when Enimem and 50 Cent both dissed Ja Rule in 2003 and that automatically put him in the "uncool" box.

Most likely. 50 Cent did have that gangsta appeal compared to Ja Rule at that time.
