50 Cent won't let the past die.

On Friday (Oct. 26), the outspoken rapper and actor claimed on Instagram that he bought 200 tickets to an upcoming Ja Rule concert so that seats near the front would be empty. Fif and Ja -- who both hail from Queens in New York -- have had a well documented beef dating back to the 1990s.

“People think I’m mean so go see this. $15 bucks. Wait what I do now lol,” 50 wrote in the now-deleted post. “I just bought 200 seats in the front row so they can be empty LOL.”

The Power co-star also posted a Photoshopped image of himself sitting among empty seats in what appears to be an arena.

Fiddy supposedly bought the tickets on Groupon for Ja's Nov. 9 concert in Arlington, Texas. He spent about $3,000, according to multiple published reports.  

Ja Rule doesn't seem to be bothered by 50's antics. "I get under @50cent skin... -- I love it!!!," the rapper tweeted over the weekend, along with multiple photos Fif dressed in a woman's wig and make-up.
