It's been years and you had the same niggas in the background

from 50 Cent – Back Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Throughout Ja’s career, Ja Rule has always been around Ashanti, Fat Joe, among others. It has been rare to see Ja work with other rappers outside his crew and the Ruff Ryders although that has changed in recent years.

50 Cent is also taking a swipe at how Ja has always left his crew behind when the spotlight’s on him — he’s not authentic.
