Ja Rule Talks Superhead Being “Prostituted”, Early Frustrations Over Giving Jay Z “Can I Get A…” + MORE (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Ja Rule’s book tour interviews are living to the book’s Unruly title. During his interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, Ja Rule discusses his new album title, Murda Inc offering Superhead as a gift to DJ’s and radio program directors and more.

Back in 2010, Karrine “Superhead” Stefans appeared on TV One’s Life After and asserted that she and Ja Rule had “5 days of non-stop sex” after meeting at a nightclub in Los Angeles. Ja Rule asserts that he never had sex with Supahead but does say that what Murda Inc did used her as a pawn in this game of music. After stating that Steffans “basically prostituted herself for Murda Inc”, he explains how she was used to thank radio DJ’s and Program Directors for supporting their records.

Back in the day, the music scene was a lot different. It was more fun.  We had a lot tof fun. We do the big conventions down in Miami. All the DJs are there and all the PDs are there. It was, ‘thumbs up, I’m hearing that Ja Rule record is spinning crazy. We got a gift for you. Thank you for all the love and support.

Months before Jay Z scored his first Top 20 Billboard Hot 100 song for his “Can I Get A..” collaboration with Ja Rule and Amil, Jay Z’s first taste of Billboard success was on Jermaine Dupri’s “Money Ain’t A Thang”. The song appeared on both Jay Z’s Vol. 2…Hard Knock Life and Dupri’s Life of 1472. “Can I Get A…” also appeared on Jay Z’s album, however Ja revealed that not only was the song originally his but there was early frustrations over giving the song to his former Def Jam label mate:

I think Jay heard the track or whatever the case may be or whatever. I spit the hook to him and he was like, ‘that’s dope.’ Then he called me back later that night and said ‘spit to me, let me hear it again’. He was like ‘That’s dope. Let’s use it for my album and for the Rush Hour soundtrack. I think at the time I was young and not understanding how the industry works. So, I said things about ‘aww man, if I had the record myself, it could’ve made my album bigger.
