Why Ashanti And Ja Rule Had The Empire We All Wanted


Murder Inc. was the record label every company wanted to be. In the early 2000's you couldn't turn on your radio without hearing a Ja Rule and Ashanti song.

Hailing from Hollis, Queens, Ja Rule made his debut in 1999 with his first studio album Venni Vetti Vecci  lead by the single "Holla Holla." From 1999 to 2005, Ja Rule would reign as one of the top-selling hip-hop artists.

Ashanti was discovered as a teenager and signed to Murder Inc. in 2001. After generating buzz following her appearance on Big Pun's "How We Roll,"  she teamed up with Fat Joe and Ja Rule for the hit single, What's Luv?" In 2002, Ashanti released her self-titled album, Ashanti. The album sold over half a million copies within the first week.

In 2001, Ja Rule released his third studio album Pain Is Love. He teamed up with Caddillac Tah, Black Child, and Ashanti on the track "The Inc." While the album had some hit singles, "The Inc." fell short in creating the vibe of a gangsta crew that they were going for.

After the success of Ashanti's first self-titled album in 2002, she didn't wait long to release a follow-up album. Chapter II was released in 2003 and the hit singles, "Rain on Me," "Rock Wit U (Awww Baby)," and "Breakup 2 Makeup" were all on this album.

In 2002, Murder Inc. Records was a force to be reckoned with; the label was producing hit albums and singles under the direction of CEO Irv Gotti. Gotti released the compilation album Irv Gotti Presents: The Inc. The album featured songs from all the artists on the label. "Down 4 You," was the first single off the record and featured Ja Rule, Ashanti, Vita and Charlie Baltimore.

Ja released the remix to "The Pledge" featuring the Queens rapper,  Ashanti, and Tupac Shakur. As usual, Ashanti was on the hook adding her vocals to make the song catchy, and fans ate it up.

When "Always On Time" hit radio airwaves in 2001 it was an instant hit. The song paired with the video introduced fans to Ja Rule and Ashanti as a dynamic duo. The single was Ja Rule's first number 1 hit to top the Billboard Hot 100.

The Plot Behind Jennifer Lopez's 'Ain't It Funny' Video


When Ashanti wrote the song 'Ain't It Funny', who would have known Jennifer Lopez would be the one singing on the chorus. This song is sampled from rapper Craig Mack's "Flava in Ya Ear".

While he was working towards the remix, Ja Rule boasted "I'm about to f--- ya'll up," stating that the song's sampling of Craig Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear" would be "remixed" and "vamped up crazy". While reviewing the original "Ain't It Funny", Billboard's Chuck Taylor said of the remix release, "Sony has got to be kidding, calling it "Ain't it Funny" when not one note of it is held in common with the original.

Ja Rule Sued

As we previously reported, the "luxury music weekend" was the brainchild of Ja Rule and Billy McFarland. Guests who paid anywhere from $1000 to $100,000 to attend were promised first class accommodations and performances by Lil Yachty, Migos, G.O.O.D. Music, Major Lazer and Blink 182.

When guests started arriving on Thursday, April 27, they were greeted by "soggy tents, bad food and general disappointment verging on panic," according to the New York Times.

TMZ reports that attorney Mark Geragos has filed a lawsuit against McFarland and Ja, on behalf of a concertgoer who believes the entire event was nothing more than a get-rich-scam.

The suit claims that both men lied about the festival's amenities and safety. FEMA tents were the so-called luxury accommodations and wild animals could be seen scurrying about. In addition, both Ja and McFarland are accused of warning some celebrity guests in advance not to come, knowing the event would not be up to par.

Why Did Mariah Carey Really Mention J.Lo In Her New Book


The long-running feud between the two makes a cameo in the book, with Mariah Carey even poking fun at her now infamous "I don't know her" comment about Lopez as she detailed how ex husband Tommy Mottola allegedly tried to derail her career following their divorce.


While she writes that she understands "Glitter" wasn't exactly Oscar bait, she doesn't think it "deserved" the hate it got at the time -- and places at least some of the movie and the soundtrack's failure on Mottola.


She accused her ex "and his cronies" of physically pulling standees and other promotional items for the album from record stores, before claiming he "interfered with the 'Glitter' soundtrack."


While writing about the alleged "sabotage" to the soundtrack, Mariah Carey explained she had originally selected Yellow Magic Orchestra's "Firecracker" to sample on the lead single, "Loverboy."


Though she doesn't name Jennifer Lopez or her song "I'm Real" by name, that single also includes the sample and was released just ahead of "Glitter." None of this is new, it caused controversy at the time and has always been credited as the source of their feud.

The Truth About Jennifer Lopez And Mariah Carey


Mariah Carey became the Queen of Shade when she was asked about Jennifer Lopez in the early 2000s and famously replied, quote, "I don't know her." It became an instant meme sensation, but there's a lot more juice to this alleged beef. Here's what really went down between Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey.

Lopez was once accused of lifting ideas from Mariah Carey's Glitter soundtrack in 2001. 

Carey reportedly cleared a sample of Yellow Magic Orchestra's "Firecracker" for her lead single, "Loverboy," and tapped rapper Ja Rule for a duet on her track, "If We." But before she could release the songs, Lopez dropped "I'm Real", which sampled "Firecracker", and her "I'm Real" remix, which featured Ja Rule. According to XXL, the publisher for "Firecracker" said Carey cleared the sample first, while Lopez reached out to use the track a month later.

#Throwback Jennifer Lopez - Ain't It Funny

 


Before Jennifer Lopez did "Ain't It Funny" featuring Ja-Rule, there was a alternate version created also. "Ain't It Funny" is a song recorded by American singer Jennifer Lopez. It was written by Lopez and Cory Rooney for the Adam Shankman-directed romantic comedy The Wedding Planner (2001). Shankman, however, felt that the song had too much of a Latin-influence to be featured in the film, and it was instead included on Lopez's second studio album, J.Lo (2001). "Ain't It Funny" was released as the third single from the album on June 20, 2001, by Epic Records.

Album: Gatti800 - “G BABY”

 


“G-Baby started off as just a nickname people associated with me after seeing me wear baseball jerseys all Summer. I decided to turn it into a project providing a variety of vibes, uplifting people through these tough times..,” Gatti800 shares with us.


The self-proclaimed “Hood Hero” is just that on this body of work — swooping in with relatable, feel-good anthems like “Row Row,” “W.Y.W,” and his flip of Ja Rule’s “Always on Time,” titling his version “Baby.” 


“I sampled some popular Hip-Hop classics and brought back some throwback lines which you will catch on to throughout the album,” Gatti800 comments.


Guest features include Chanel Michelle, Shad, Dolla, Nyah, HMan, and Marboss, while production credit goes out to MarsBeatz and CorMill, the latter of which produced five tracks on the project.

FK Lee (@FKLeeBOS) - "All Good"

‬All good is a tale of the struggles of life and love alike. FK Lee brings out the soul in this upbeat, guitar driven bop and taps into his sensitive side. The track is quite reminiscent of an early 2000s Nelly or Ja Rule type vibe by taking this approach of not being too hard to love but understanding that it is indeed hard to love. Having a tough time? Stuck? Or just plain out of it? Well…that’s what this song was made for! A ballad about the struggles of life & love alike. All in all, he’s left speechless about what to say about the battles he’s facing with living and loving but is here with a love letter to provide some reassurance that it’ll always be All Good...
