In the 1990s, Irv Gotti made a name for himself as DJ Irv and he worked with many artists. The biggest of them were Jay Z, DMX, and Ja Rule, all of whom he helped sign with Def Jam. Early in his career, Irv had a strong relationship with Lyor Cohen.
A decade later, Irv Gotti claimed his position as the head of hip hop’s top movement. This followed years of hard work and establishing other stars. As quickly as it came, it all went away, as 50 Cent emerged and legal trouble fell upon his company.
50 Cent recently got into it with Meek Mill and his history with Irv Gotti and Murder Inc. came into play. Omelly shared a copy of the court documents revealing the restraining order 50 had against Murder Inc. Irv Gotti reshared this along with a message on his Instagram calling him a tormented soul, among other things.
