The rapper/mogul is reported to be currently in talks to purchase the masters and publishing to all o Ja Rule’s hit records.
According to online reports, 50 Cent is back at it. 50 Cent is closing in on buying all of Ja Rule’s master’s and publishing rights to multiple hit records that Ja made during his heyday.
There’s no word yet on price, but online reports say that Curtis Jackson may pay as much as 7 figures for the songs. The report claims that 50 is negotiating directly with with Def Jam, who own the rights to most of Ja Rule’s music.
If 50 is successful in the purchase, 50 will receive royalties very time that Ja Rule classic records get a streamed or sold. Additionally, Ja Rule would have to pay 50 Cent every time he performs one of his songs in public – and that includes in concert.
This isn’t the first time that 50 used his fortune to HIT BACK at his longtime rival Ja Rule. Last week 50 told fans that he was buying 200 front row tickets, in order to ensure that Ja Rule’s show would be empty.
