The ongoing beef between ’00s rappers 50 Cent and Ja Rule continues, as 50 Cent recently commented on Instagram that he’d bought 200 tickets on the front row of one of Ja Rule’s upcoming concerts, just so he can leave them empty. The rapper even mocked up a photoshopped image of himself sitting among empty seats.

The tickets were advertised at $15 via discount website Groupon, which means this latest round of beef cost the Vitamin Water mogul $3,000.

This isn’t the first time 50 Cent has used social media for pranking his peers — in May this year, the rapper mocked A$AP Rocky for his all-Gucci outfit, and responded to Nike’s Colin Kaepernick campaign by superimposing “Slavery Was a Choice” over an image of Kanye West.
