Ja Rule Calls 50 Cent a Snitch in His New Novel
Ja Rule is dropping an autobiography next week, and you guessed it: 99.9% of it is based on his over-ten-year-old beef with 50 Cent. (As if we haven't had enough of this ol' washed up feud.) Despite the outdated nature of this ancient Hip Hopera, In Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Being a Man, Ja claims that Fif cooperated with the authorities back in 2000 when he got popped nine times, persuading police that Irv Gotti and the raspy-voiced rapper himself had something to do with the shooting.
Ruley Rule even went on to detail two physical encounters with his arch nemesis where he claims he beat Fifthy's ass with a bat and a crutch. (I guess the AK-47s and 9mms would've been a stretch.) Whatever the case, Mr. Curtis Jackson already reignited this old feud when he performed "I Smell P---y" during his reunion special with G-Unit at this year's Hot 97 Summer Jam.

Kanye and Rihanna Working on New Music?
On Wednesday (June 25), Kanye West's wonderful paparazzi friends sneaked a few shots of him and Rihanna late-night tip-toeing in and out of a recording studio in West Hollywood. (The paps are still alive, so it's safe to say Kanye didn't see any of them.) While this would've alluded to a freaky love affair had it been Chris Brown in place of Ye, 'tis not the case with the Bad Gal and Mr. Kardashian. (Or so we'd hope.) Therefore, this must mean that these two music giants are cooking up a new monster! Is RiRi recording a track on Kanye's new album? Is Yeezy laying down some versus on one of her upcoming releases? Unlike Rihanna's areolas, this is still a mystery, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
