The G-Unit–Murder Inc. feud was a hip hop rivalry between 50 Cent (Curtis James Jackson III) and his record label G-Unit, and Ja Rule (Jeffrey Atkins) and his label Murder Inc. Records (now known as The Inc. Records), from 1999 until it slowly dissolved in 2004. The conflict helped 50 Cent gain mainstream and street notoriety for going up against Ja Rule who was a very popular and respected artist during the time. It is one of the most followed feuds in hip hop history, but also one of the most violent feuds as it went far as both artists becoming involved with fights and other physical violence with each other.

Most sacrilegious murder hath broke ope
The Lords anointed temple, and stole thence
The life o the building.”

Yet deadly feud twixt thee and me;
For from one father are we not,
Thou by old Adam wast begot,
But my arise is from above,”
