DMX Lookin’ Victorious Over Ja Rule

Well we still haven’t heard DMX’s diss of Ja Rule, but so far most of you think he’s gonna come out looking like the victor in his beef with the Murder Inc. star. 61.6% of you said X is gonna Ja Rule, while only 11.3% said X is all bark and no bite, Ja Rule’s gonna kick it. 14.3% say it’s all publicity, while 12.9% hope the two keep it on wax.
