Jadakiss and 50 Cent began beefing in 2004 after Ja Rule dropped his song "New York” with Kiss and Fat Joe. 50 believed Ja and Joe were siding with Ja -- his long-time enemy - by being on the track so he started beefing with them, too.

Kiss addressed the spat during a recent interview with L.A.'s 92.3, in which he said fighting with Fif was good for the bottom line, especially after he dropped the 50 diss "Checkmate". [Jump to 37 minutes.]

“I made a lot of money off the 50 thing. It was a different era. ‘Checkmate’ actually charted on Billboards,” Kiss explains. “I was going on tour off that … The whole 50 thing was good for me. I appreciated that more than the [Beanie] Sigel [beef]. The Fif thing was beautiful. He was selling that next album… [‘New York’] was a good segue to try to say I was standing close to his enemy. We came in the game with Ja.”

“I liked the song, it was a good song. It was representing New York," The L.O.X. member continued. "I didn’t have to answer to nobody. I didn’t think that song made it look like I was partnering up with Ja for his beef.”

Who would you say won that beef?
