A lot of times when we mention Ja Rule’s name it is not always positive. Since 50 Cent made a mockery of him, his season “upstate” and the Fyre Festival fiasco, people just have been joking about one of the most creative artists/ businessmen to come out of the Def Jam halls.

Now, he is ready to take it all the way there… bruh … you get all the virtual pomp and circumstance and digital confetti.
