Ja Rule Calls Himself The “LeBron James” Of Rap After Eminem “Killshot” Name-drop

"The more Em mentions my name, the more I realize how fucking LEGENDARY I am..."

Eminem shook up the game up when he released Kamikaze last month (Aug. 31). Taking shots at as many industry names as possible, Em flexed his mastery on the entire album, reminding critics his skills have not yet hindered.

When MGK turned heads with his response to Em's "Not Alike" with "Rap Devil," the Detroit rapper was quick to retaliate.

Taking aim at Kelly's entire career, Eminem dropped "KILLSHOT," addressing MGK's small fanbase, weak bars and fragile sales.

“You ain't never made a list next to no Biggie, no Jay/ Next to Taylor Swift and that Iggy ho, you about to really blow/ Kelly, they'll be putting your name/ Next to Ja, next to Benzino—die, motherfucker!/ Like the last motherfucker sayin' Hailie in vain" spit Em.

While most would say that bar took shots at Kelly, Ja Rule and Benzino, Ja Rule is thriving and enjoying the "fruits"off their 16-year-old beef.

Taking some time to address the name-drop on Instagram Saturday (Sept. 17), the New York rapper celebrated the occasion with a sense of nostalgia, crowning himself the "LeBron James" of "this rap sh*t."

"The more Em mentions my name, the more I realize how fucking LEGENDARY I am..." said the New York rapper. "I was killing the game so hard that all the biggest rappers in the industry (at the time) joined forces to dethrone the God...my music is TIMELESS."

With beef dating back to the early 2000s, Rule and Benzino have not seen successful rap careers since their run-in with Em. Allegedly said to have ended both of their careers with tracks like “Doe Rae Me (Hailie’s Revenge)” and "Go To Sleep," Em was more than likely trying to threaten Kelly than commemorate Rule.

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
