It’s been over a decade since 50 Cent and Murder Inc. sparked their rap beef. Today, it seems anyone who was ever affiliated with the label can still catch shots from the Queens rapper, as he recently trolled Ashanti over low ticket sales.
In a now deleted Instagram post, 50, real name Curtis Jackson, shared a screenshot of an article reporting the “Happy” singer’s college show was cancelled because only 24 tickets were sold, along with the caption, “do Basement parties then it can still feel like it’s lit.”

TMZ caught up with the Long Island singer shortly after the jab, where she referred to the MC as “Officer Curtis.”
“I mean it’s obvious [the concert was canceled]… it was a lack of promotion. The school put out a statement to clarify it was a lack of promotion and, you know, they shouldn’t have never did it. So, you know, no hard feelings.”
After a bit of coaxing from the TMZ rep, Ashanti proclaims, “Curtis is definitely a bully.”
