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.

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.

DMX or Jay-Z


DMX doubles down on wanting to go against JAY-Z in a Verzuz battle. “It's a celebration. We're celebrating music,” DMX said.

In the late '90s, Jay-Z and DMX were Def Jam's most successful stars. The friendly rivalry includes several rap battles between the legendary MCs, including their Backstage Freestyle match in 2000. In 1999, they also created the infamous supergroup Murder Inc, which starred both rappers and Ja Rule.

Before DMX and Jay Z became international rap titans, they competed in a classic hip-hop war. Their Bronx battle in the early '90s is the stuff of legends and it's also what sparked their ongoing beef, according to Irv Gotti.

What Would A Battle Between DMX And Jay-Z Be Like?


Before DMX and Jay Z became international rap titans, they competed in a classic hip-hop war. Even with all that feuding in the past, Hov and X have collaborated on a bunch of songs, including "It's Murda" and "Blackout." They even almost formed a group with Ja Rule.

In 1999, Jay Z and DMX embarked (and majorly cashed in) on the Hard Knock Life Tour. Although Jay Z’s album gave the tour its name, the lineup was a joint headliner of the Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder and DMX.

Captured in the documentary film Backstage, Jay Z and DMX had vastly different demeanors on wax, on stage, and as celebrities. While both were pillars of Rap-made-right and suddenly sex symbols, they only overlapped in skill and love of the art.

Gansta Marcus Talks His Lifestyle, Young Talent, And More

The musical artist Gansta-Marcus has lived a hell of a life throughout the years. He has been through more things than most can imagine. From his brother being stabbed multiple times to owning homes. Through all the rain and the pain, he still manages to keep a smile on his face.

He has been in the underground music industry since 2010. He started off by searching for young talent within his city of Lima, which led him to start producing himself. Since growing up to be a man, Marcus has had many children between two women.

Gansta Marcus has always believed in empowerment of our youth. He teach's the youth around him that, (In His Own Words) "Its okay to hustle, but have a job while rapping about your life. Selling drugs in not the only way to make money in the streets, you can sell cd's, scrap, learn to fix electronics and sell them."

After being there with him one-on-one, I also come to notice that he teach's them to be creative in making music, learn to record in the studio they build. I like the concept, make his whole city reach out to shine. I invite all readers, writers, and bloggers to learn more of the person they call Gansta-Marcus. You are welcomed to click on the link below to bing or google the Lima, Ohio artist.

Gansta Marcus claims that he is going to be release another various artist album by April of 2016. He say's that he have tracks stacked up steaming from 2010 till today. So be sure to follow the artist online as new content gets ready to hit the music community.

When asked how does he feel about the rap game today, he responded: "The rap game has become very diverse over the years. Went went from Tupac and Biggie to Master P and Cash Money. After that, it went into a new form of music created by DMX and Ja-Rule."

"The rap game kept changing. It created a platform for artist such as Beyonce and Nelly. The list just keeps going with artist that took off such as Soulja Boy and D4L. Now we are in a section on the community of music where gays and the LGBT communities are taking over. Young Thug and more are hitting harder than most could imagine.
