LATEST: Fat Joe and Jadakiss have fired back at nasty comments 50 CENT is making about them on his new track PIGGY BANK by taking their thoughts to MTV NEWS.

The New York rappers upset 50 when they appeared on his rival Ja Rule's NEW YORK single and video, and that put them both on the IN DA CLUB hitmaker's enemies list.

Fat Joe has already made his feelings known by calling 50 Cent a "coward" during an interview on New York's HOT 97 radio station last week (24FEB05), and now he has taken to TV to air his grievances about his new rival, and challenge him to a fight.

He tells MTV News, "If you have a problem with me, all you gotta do is pick up the phone and be like, 'I gotta problem with you. Either we could fix it or you could tell me where to go and meet you and we can go fight.'

"It's very simple. Fat Joe has been known to square off with guys one on one, no problem."

Meanwhile, Jadakiss is sure to annoy 50 Cent even more by treating the angry track as a huge opportunity for him.

He says, "I don't know how much respect as a man I've got for him right now... I appreciate the opportunity, though, where this is gonna take me, 'cos I'm gonna benefit off this, trust me."
