Who won, according to fans?
Many fans believe that Ja Rule won against Fat Joe in the battle. The final score will be released today (September 15th) but a lot of people suspect that the ‘Always On Time’ artist came out as winner.
One fan tweeted: “I think Ja Rule won. Fat Joe didn’t start well. Joe used songs by Nelly and Big Pun (RIP), which he doesn’t even feature on. Joe eventually improved (after taking a break) – but it was too late. Ja won.”
Another one said: “Ja Rule won but he in no way, shape, or form a better rapper/artist than Fat Joe.”
Someone else added: “Fat joe or Ja rule ? I might be wrong but I think Ja won the battle!”
