Hip-hop star 50 Cent has announced Ja Rule's career is over - as he has proudly taken the credit for "running him out of the business".

The Candy Shop rapper, real name CURTIS JACKSON, famously said at the height of his feud with rap rival Rule, "I've got the time and energy to ruin what is left of their careers, " and he now claims he has succeeded in his destructive quest.

And he also insists fans prefer his music to the ALWAYS ON TIME star's, because his style is more consistent.

He says, "His career is over. Nobody listens to his music anymore. I ran him out of the business.

"Consistency makes people choose who you like. I've been so consistent that they like me over him."
