That was never my object, for someone to get killed
Is he talking about Ja Rule’s career here?
There have been countless threats of violence and death in the feuds he’s mentioned here, but no one had been killed as a result of any of the beefs mentioned in this song (D12 member Proof was later shot and killed, but in a likely completely unrelated incident)
He’s probably referring to the rap beefs that have ended in death, most notably 2 Pac and The Notorious B.I.G. That incident should have taught the rap world a lesson about these situations
