Ja Rule responds to Eminem dissing him on 'Kamikaze'
Eminem (45) triggered the "rap game" after he dissed a few artists on his new album Kamikaze last Friday (Aug. 31). The album was definitely a verbal jab at Ja Rule (42), with whom Eminem is fighting for more than 15 years. Their beef dates back to the rapper’s early days under Dr. Dre, and the new album had to face criticism at his old nemesis on the track "Greatest."
"God forbid I forget, go and jump out the window, somebody better child-proof it
'Cause if I lose it we can rewind to some old Ja Rule shit
And I can remind motherf**kers I'll do shit"
Their beef started between 50 Cent and Ja Rule, and only got worse after Ja engaged Em’s daughter Hailie in his diss track "Loose Change" in 2002.
As a response to a tweet about Ja Rule's Em name-drop, Ja Rule aimed at Eminem's daughter Hailey.
"Guess that Halie line must be starting to hit home," Ja wrote.
Other popular feuds between artists
Zayn Malik vs. One Direction
Zayn Malik (25) announced his departure from One direction in March 2015. That seemed quite innocent and understandable.
He just claimed that he wanted to step back from the spotlight and be a "normal 22-year-old," but then just a few days later he was spotted in a recording studio with producer Naughty Boy.
Louis Tomlinson, One Direction member, started a heated Twitter fight with Zayn soon after that.
The fight culminated when Tomlinson wrote "Jesus, forgot you were such an in demand producer … How does it feel to be riding on the back of someone else’s career? Malik replied, "Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?"
Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift
They collaborated in 2010 on Katy Perry’s (33) "Hot n Cold," and four years later Taylor Swift (28) was singing a "Bad Blood."
The song was a cover story with Rolling Stone and she revealed that the 1989 track was written about another woman in the music industry who "did something so horrible" that it meant the ending of the friendship.
The misunderstanding turned out to concern backup dancers who had run away from Swift’s Red tour to Perry’s Prismatic trek.
Lady Gaga vs. Madonna
Lady Gaga (32) has been compared to Madonna (60) since the beginning of her career.
They were even rivals in a 2009 Saturday Night Live sketch but it got more serious when Lady Gaga released her "Born This Way" in January 2011.
Many fans claimed that it sounded like Madonna’s 1989 hit "Express Yourself"- including Madge herself.
"I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. … Obviously, I’ve influenced her."
"It feels … reductive" Madonna said.
