Ja Rule is looking forward to rap rival 50 CENT's forthcoming new movie, so he can "keep an eye on the enemy".

But the rapper - real name JEFFREY ATKINS - isn't expecting GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN to be critically acclaimed, despite being directed by celebrated movie-maker Jim Sheridan.

Ja Rule - who has a longterm feud with 50 Cent - tells the New York Daily News, "I always study the enemy, so I might check it out. But it looks kinda bull."
