DON'T WANT TO GO OVER THERE.

NUMBER ONE, YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR SOMEBODY TO COME OR YOU APPEAR

TO BE A BULLY.

THAT'S WHAT THEY CALL ME, A BULLY.

>> Stephen: YOU LET THEM BEEF AT YOU AND --

>> YOU LET THEM SAY SOMETHING AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE NUMBER

ONE, YOU GO, WHEN, WHEN I DIE?

( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: I'VE GOT TO WRITE

THIS STUFF DOWN.

YOU HAD A BEEF -- OR HAVE A BEEF WITH JA RULE?

>> THAT'S OLD SCHOOL.

>> Stephen: WAIT, I UNDERSTAND IN OCTOBER YOU DID SOMETHING TO

GET BACK AT JA RULE.

PLEASE TELL THE PEOPLE WHAT YOU DID?

>> I BOUGHT, LIKE, THE FIRST FOUR ROWS IN HIS CONCERT.

( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: YOU BOUGHT THE

FIRST FOUR ROWS IN HIS CONCERT?

WERE YOU JUST ON GROUPON OR JUST SEE IT OR HEAR IT WAS ON

GROUPON?

>> NO, THEY WAS SHOWING ME THE STUFF ON THERE, MY SISTER.

I SAID, YO, THEY PUT CONCERT TICKETS ON THERE?

I SAID, HOW MUCH ARE THE TICKETS?

FIFTEEN DOLLARS?

I SAID, OKAY, GIVE ME THE FIRST FOUR ROWS.

THAT HAS TO BE, LIKE, 200 SEATS.

>> IT WAS, LIKE, $3,000.

>> Stephen: SO THERE WERE NO ONE IN HIS FIRST FOUR ROWS OF

HIS CONCERTS?

>> THAT TESTS YOUR SHOWMANSHIP.

WHEN YOU COME AND NOBODY'S IN THE FRONT SEATS, YOU'VE STILL

GOT TO PERFORM LIKE EVERYBODY'S HERE.

( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: YOU DO NOT WANT TO
