Hopsin Calls Lord Jamar Dumb & Says His Comments Are Racist

Hopsin refers to Eminem as being "50 percent" of the rap game, says he wanted guest verses from Macklemore and Yelawolf on "Knock Madness."

Brand Nubian rapper Lord Jamar is continuing to catch criticism over comments he made weeks ago in regards to white rappers, specifically Seattle emcee Macklemore. Among the latest batch of artists to come to the defense of those Lord Jamar called out is West Coast wordsmith Hopsin. The Los Angeles-based artist referred to Lord Jamar as a “dumb ass dude” when asked about a tweet he sent out in regards to Jamar’s interview with Vlad TV in September.

“Yeah, some dumb-ass dude,” said Hopsin, during an interview with Hard Knock TV. “Some stupid rapper dude was on. I saw an interview. I don’t know how I came across it, but he was talking about like Macklemore and pushing the [gauge] and being white and telling white people to stay in their lane. And, you know, I’m just about humans being equal. Everybody is equal. That shouldn’t even be brought up. That’s racist. Like that’s so foul. That’s equivalent to a white guy going, ‘Why are you in this fucking bathroom? You’re fucking black. Don’t ever [over]step your boundaries.’ When you hear somebody talk like that it gives you chills. Like, ‘Woah, is this mothafucka serious right now?’ It’s 2013 and somebody’s really talking like this right now…Whoever that dude was, whatever the fuck he was talking, anybody can do whatever the fuck they want to do. If Macklemore wants to push for gay rights, why can’t he?”

In his interview with Vlad TV, Lord Jamar stated that white artists are “guests in the house of Hip Hop” and went on to make a specific reference to Macklemore.

Hopsin States That Eminem Is “50 Percent” Of The Rap Game

Hopsin also spoke on Eminem, an artist Lord Jamar mentioned during a series of tweets he made during the airing of MTV’s Europe Music Awards on November 10.

Hopsin referred to Eminem, who is white, as being “50 percent of the fuckin rap game” and gave credit to emcees of all races.

“Yeah, it may have been started by black people, but it’s evolved so much,” said the rapper. “And how you gonna say that with Eminem? So, you’re just gonna completely ignore Eminem and everything that he’s done for Hip Hop? Like ‘Oh, he just doesn’t exist then.’ And Eminem is like 50 percent of the fuckin rap game, if you ask me. So, you’re just gonna completely ignore that? Like that’s so stupid to say. Come on now, it’s 2013. Racism shouldn’t even be an issue anymore. Hip Hop has evolved. Life has evolved. And there are still racist people out there, but that’s just so stupid to say…There’s so many dope emcees of different races.”

Hopsin Says He Hoped For Macklemore & Yelawolf Collabs On “Knock Madness”

Hopsin may have been able to secure a feature from fellow rapper Tech N9ne for his upcoming album, Knock Madness, but he says he also had plans on approaching Macklemore and Yelawolf for guest features as well.

“I got Tech N9ne on it,” said Hop. “That was the only one. I wanted to reach out to Yelawolf as well, but I don’t think he had time. And I also wanted to get Macklemore on it, but he was—I had hit up Macklemore early, early like in January or something and I asked him if he was down. I mean, he’s been cool with me. I know him, so he’s always been down to collab, but I just never had anything ready and then I think I hit him up almost—I sent him a text message like a month ago. But I think that was the same day he was doing—I don’t know if it was the BET Awards or something. One of the awards shows. I was like ‘Ahh, he’s definitely not gonna respond.’ Cause all that shit was going on and I was like ‘There’s no way.’ So, I’ll just—It’s cool. I’ll catch him somewhere down the road.”

In addition to Hopsin, Lord Jamar has also received criticism from comedian/actor Lil Duval and Alabama rapper Yelawolf. Lil Duval stated that Lord Jamar was “contradicting” himself with his comments, while Yelawolf offered an even more in-depth response to Jamar’s comments.

"Everybody has a place," Yelawolf said during an interview with Vlad TV. "I've always felt protective of the culture of white rappers because you want to protect the steez of it and make sure that that circle of artists are to a certain par, at least to your opinion. But, all that has changed. It don't even fuckin' matter no more. It's not like when I came up. These kids aren't going to the 'hood club in the middle of Bankhead like I was doing to try to get respected. They're not taking the same steps. It's not comparable to how I came up. The people I was rollin' with, the things I was doing and how I came up is totally different."

Hopsin’s Knock Madness album is currently scheduled for release November 26.

    Lord Jamar is a fucking moron though, simple type. Came across his interviews on Youtube with DJ Vlad, put a mic and camera in his face and he'll blabber on and on about any/everything, he loves attention. He's way too old to be that stupid, young cat I might understand but wow... Dressing like he's still in High School, embarrassing.

      Lauren Hills statements were rumors. She never said those comments. Ghost face kill ah and immortal technique aren't racist either. You should replace Lauren hill. Immortal technique, and ghost face kill ah with da lench mob, tweedy bird loc, and menace clan

    Damn can anyone idolize their favorite rapper and not be called a copy cat? I mean seriously. Y'all hate everyone thats not you that idolizes your favorite rapper. Hell Drake make it known Lil Wayne is his influence and not too far off in sound and lyrics. Y'all the same fans that shitted on Mac Miller because he idolize Big L and shitted on him because he white. If I could find that article on here to post it I would to prove my point how racist a lot of y'all are that y'all claim not to be. Hopsin one of the few rappers good in your eyes or not, that is coming with lyrics that are far worth more listening too than half of this garbage music out... I bet if half of y'all was in his same position and Em was your favorite rapper y'all would be saying the same thing he said. Y'all sound fucking ridiculous!

    im so sick of this " it's 2013 stuff. Just because the people in the world mind's change does not change the world. When the sun starts comin out at night and the moon stays up during the day, monkeys start mooing and cows start meowing then we can say the world has changed.

  • Jordy

    Of course he would say that, because he's the biggest Eminem stan the world's ever seen. Total copycat, he wishes he was him.

  • Tell--it-like--it-is

    Bored Jamar acts like rap hasn't alway borrowed from other cultures to make it as dope as it is. Classical, jazz, rock( run doc and aerosmith) and many others but that's what makes music great is breaking genre barriers to create new music. If all the ppl who great would of stayed in their so called lanes they wouldn't of been great. Bored jamar is ignorant and racist and we need to move in a direction where we need to see ppl as ppl not white, black, Hispanic, etc. sure there is always gonna be racist and I've experienced it first hand but if I start attacking them for whatever skin color those who attacked me were I would be a hypocrite and as ignorant as them. I will be ignorant and whoop their ass but for being assholes not because of what they look like

This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. GUCCI MANE KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

  • TJ

    Ok 3 things. 1. It should not matter whether you're white or black or asian or hispanic (or anywhere in between) if you rap. Skill over Skin. 2. Eminem most definitely is NOT a racist. We'll never be able to hear what went through his mind when he said it, but actions speak louder than words. He has several black (and hispanic) friends (I'll agree not necessarily an indicator of racism, if someone wants to get technical) and grew up in the Detroit rap scene, a place not exactly known for being friendly to whites; let alone a RACIST white. 3. I don't think the majority (although I hate to stereotype) of people who listen to Rap music would be angry that Obama got elected... they probably put him in office...

  • Ja Rule Army [Back to Trolling]

    Jeffrey Atkins (born February 29, 1976),[2] better known by his stage name Ja Rule, is an American rapper, singer, and actor from Queens, New York. Born in Hollis, Queens, he debuted in 1999 with Venni Vetti Vecci and its single "Holla Holla". From 1999 to 2005, Ja Rule had several hits that made the top 20 of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, including "Between Me and You" with Christina Milian, "I'm Real (Murder Remix)" and Ain't It Funny with Jennifer Lopez, which both topped the US Billboard Hot 100, the Grammy-nominated #2 hit, "Always on Time" with Ashanti, "Mesmerize" also with Ashanti, and "Wonderful" with R. Kelly and Ashanti. During the 2000s, Ja Rule was signed to The Inc. Records, which was formerly known as Murder Inc. and was led by Irv Gotti. Due from his hits with his fellow collaborators, Ja Rule has earned four Grammy nominations, and has earned six top-ten albums, two of which Rule 3:36 (2000) and Pain Is Love (2001), topped the US Billboard 200. He is also known for some well-publicized feuds with other rappers (in particular 50 Cent and Eminem).

At the age of five his sister died from breathing complications, leaving him as an only child. He attended Public School 134 in Hollis, a school he has described as having a predominantly black student body. He said he got into many fights at the school because of his small size, so his mother transferred him to Middle School 172 in Glen Oaks, which he described as a "white school".[4] Atkins earned his GED in February 2012.[5] Music career Atkins began his rap career in 1993 with his classic hip hop group Cash Money Click. He told Curtis Waller of MTV News that his stage name "Ja Rule" came from a friend who addressed him by that name; other friends called him "Ja".[6] In 1995, he made his first appearance on Mic Geronimo's "Time to Build" which featured Jay-Z and DMX, who were also in their early stages of their careers. In 1998 he had signed with Def Jam, and was also featured on Jay-Z's hit single "Can I Get A..." along with Amil which Ja Rule wrote the hook, and was going to be a Ja Rule solo song, until Jay-Z heard the track. Venni Vetti Vecci (1999) Ja Rule's debut album Venni Vetti Vecci was released in 1999, peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 with 184,000 copies sold in its first week and eventually reached platinum status in the US due to the popularity of the hit single, "Holla Holla" which reached #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[7][8] Rule 3:36 (2000) Ja Rule returned in 2000 with his new single "Between Me and You", which featured Christina Milian which would end up getting Top 40 airplay. "Between Me and You" reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the second single "Put It on Me" featuring Vita and Lil' Mo reached number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100.[7] The music video for "Put It on Me" had also topped the MTV Video Countdown for a week. The second album, Rule 3:36, was released on October 10, 2000 and had debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 with 276,000 copies in its first week, making it Ja Rule's first number one album. The album would be certified triple platinum by the RIAA.[8] Pain Is Love (2001) Ja Rule released his third studio album, Pain Is Love on October 2, 2001 and is considered to be Ja Rule's most commercially successful album of his career. The album spawned three top ten singles, two of them reaching number 1. The first single, "Livin' It Up", featuring Case, reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the second single "Always on Time", which featured Ashanti ended up being Ja Rule's first number 1 hit to top the Billboard Hot 100.[7] The remix of Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Real" which features Ja Rule, also topped the Billboard Hot 100. Like its predecessor, Pain Is Love topped the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 361,000 copies and was certified triple platinum by the RIAA.[8] The album would also receive a Grammy nomination in 2002 for Best Rap Album. By 2007, 3.6 million copies of Pain Is Love had been sold.[9] The Last Temptation (2002) The Last Temptation, Ja Rule's fourth album, was released on November 19, 2002. It featured two hit singles; "Thug Lovin'" (peaked at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Mesmerize" another duet with Ashanti (peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100).[7] The Last Temptation debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 237,000 copies and was certified Platinum by the RIAA in December 2002.[8][10] Blood in My Eye (2003) Ja Rule's fifth album Blood in My Eye, was released on November 4, 2003 under the "Murder Inc." label, which renamed itself "The Inc." several days after the album release. The album was originally planned to be a mixtape, but Murder Inc. had ordered Ja Rule to release an album each year based on the requirements of his contract. The album was described as a "hate" album, directed at artists on G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath. It spawned one hit single, "Clap Back" which reached number 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 and had won him a Source Award for "Fat Tape" song of the year. It peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, selling 139,000 copies in its first week of release. It has since sold over 468,000 copies in the U.S.[10] In October 2003, Ja Rule met with Minister Louis Farrakhan, who wanted to intervene and prevent escalating violence in the feud between Ja Rule and 50 Cent.[11] R.U.L.E. (2004) Ja Rule's sixth studio album R.U.L.E. was released in November 2004 debuting at number 7 selling 166,000 copies in its first week of release. Its lead single was "Wonderful" featuring R. Kelly and Ashanti peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was followed by the street anthem "New York" featuring Fat Joe and Jadakiss which charted at number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. The third single was the love song "Caught Up" featuring Lloyd which had failed to make an impact on the Billboard Hot 100. The RIAA certified R.U.L.E. Gold on January 14, 2005,[8] and by October 2007, the album had sold 658,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[9] Hiatus, departure from Def Jam and initial departure from The Inc. Records (20052009) Ja Rule performing in Fort Hood, Texas, May 13, 2005 On December 6, 2005, The Inc. released Exodus, a greatest hits album whose only new tracks were the song "Me" and intro and outro tracks. Exodus was the last album on Ja Rule's contract with The Inc. After the release of this compilation, Ja Rule took a hiatus from recording music.[2] In 2005, The Inc. Records came under investigation because of drug trades by Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, who was associated with Irv Gotti.[12] This led to Def Jam Recordings refusing to renew The Inc.'s contract. From 2005 to 2006, Gotti searched for other labels until finally reaching a deal with Universal Records (part of the same company as Def Jam). The Mirror and Mpire Music Group (2009) After leaving Murder Inc. Records in 2009, Ja Rule founded his own independent label, Mpire Music Group and recruited new artists while still maintaining friendship with Irv Gotti. The Mirror was to be Ja Rule's seventh album and set for a 2007 release date, however, due to poor reception to singles (partly believed to be due to his beef with 50 Cent), it was pushed back. Tracks from the album leaked online, leading Ja Rule to re-record the album. He eventually decided to release it as a free download in 2009. Pain Is Love 2, prison and Renaissance Project (2012present) In February 2011, it was announced that Ja Rule started working on another album called Pain Is Love 2, naming it after the original 2001 triple platinum album (Pain Is Love). It was planned to have production from the producers on the original Pain Is Love album in order to "recreate magic". Most of the production would be done by 7 Aurelius (who co-produced "Down Ass Bitch"), while Irv Gotti was the executive producer of the album. He had planned on releasing it June 7, although later decided to delay the release date in order to allow more time to perfect the "level and quality of the records" and to avoid "doing an injustice to [his] fans".[13][14][15] Pain Is Love 2 was slated for an October 11, 2011 release date but was pushed back to February 28, 2012.[16] To make up for the delay Ja Rule released a new track called "Falling to Pieces" which was produced by 7 Aurelius. The song samples The Script's "Breakeven".[17][18] On October 2, 2011, another track called "Spun a Web" was released, which was also produced 7 Aurelius and samples Coldplay's "Trouble". The following day a teaser music video premiered on YouTube and the official music video was released on October 11.[19] Pain Is Love 2 was finally released on February 28, 2012, while Ja Rule was serving a two-year sentence in prison for gun possession. Renaissance Project is the upcoming eighth studio album by Ja Rule which has yet to have a confirmed release date. Recording sessions for the album took place primarily at Mpire Studios in NYC Studio during 2008 to 2011. Production was handled by Rule and several others, including Benzino, 7 Aurelius and Buck 3000. Most of the tracks that were meant for the Renaissance were transferred over to Pain Is Love 2. Ja Rule was set to be released from prison on July 28, 2013, but on May 7, 2013, he was released early.[20] He then announced that a new album is on the way and he is getting offers from major labels and artists wanting to collaborate with him. N.O.R.E announced that Ja will be on a remix to one of the tracks off his latest album, Student of the Game. He is then set to go out on his tour, "40 Days, 40 Nights" tour. He was featured the remix to the track "She Tried" which features Lil Wayne and Birdman, which is off N.O.R.E's latest album Student of the Game. On September 18, 2013, Ja Rule released a track titled "Fresh Out Da Pen". The track had first premiered on Hot 97.[21][22] A few days later he released another new track called "Everything" both produced by Visionary producers, Reefa and Myles William. On September 27, 2013, both of those tracks would be released on iTunes for digital download.[23][24] Also, It was confirmed that Ja Rule returned to The Inc. Records.[citation needed] Acting career Aside from rapping, Ja Rule has established a career as an actor, his first film was a buddy movie with Pras, he famously appeared in The Fast and the Furious. In 2004, he appeared in several movies including Back in The Day with Ving Rhames and Pam Grier and Half Past Dead as Steven Seagal's co-star. He also starred in the movies The Cookout with Queen Latifah and Assault on Precinct 13. In 2013, he starred in I'm in Love with a Church Girl. Personal life Family In April 2001, Ja Rule married Aisha Murray.[25][26][27][28] He also has three children; Brittany (born 1995), Jeff Atkins Jr. (born 2000), and Jordan Atkins (born 2004).[29][30] Legal issues In 2003, he allegedly punched a man in Toronto, who later sued Ja Rule. The issue was settled out of court.[31] In 2004, police investigated whether a feud involving The Inc. led to a fatal shooting outside a nightclub party hosted by Ja Rule and Leon Richardson where they thought he shot Proof of D12.[32][33] On July 1, 2004, Ja Rule was arrested with Don Rhys for driving with a suspended license and possessing marijuana.[34] In July 2007, Ja Rule was arrested for gun and drug possession charges along with Lil Wayne, and Don Rhys who served eight months in prison during 2010 for attempted possession of a weapon stemming from the arrest.[35][36][37] New York Supreme Court judge Richard Carruthers rejected Ja Rule's argument that the gun was illegally obtained evidence.[38][39] On December 13, 2010, Ja Rule received a two-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to attempted possession of a weapon after the aforementioned 2007 concert. On March 8, 2011 Ja Rule's surrender date for his two-year prison sentence was set for June 8.[40] His publicist said that Ja Rule will turn himself in to authorities. He will go to Rikers Island first, then be sent to a state facility in Upstate New York.[41] In July 2011, Ja Rule received an additional 28-month prison sentence for tax evasion, to run concurrently with his state term, failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million in earnings between 2004-2006.[42] He was released from state prison on February 21, 2013, but was immediately taken into federal custody for the tax case, for which he has less than six months remaining on his sentence.[43] Ja Rule was held in Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center and was set be released in July 28, 2013. Ja Rule was released from prison early on May 7, 2013.[20][44] Feuds 50 Cent/G-Unit Records Before signing with Interscope Records, 50 Cent engaged in a well-publicized feud with Ja Rule and his label Murder Inc. Records. 50 Cent claimed that the feud began in 1999 after Ja Rule spotted him with a man who robbed him of his jewelry and also because of Ja Rule "trying to be Tupac".[citation needed] However, Ja Rule claimed the conflict stemmed from a video shoot in Queens because 50 Cent did not like Ja Rule "getting so much love" from the neighborhood.[45] A confrontation occurred in a New York studio where rapper Black Child, a Murder Inc. artist, stabbed 50 Cent, which resulted in him having three stitches.[4] In his book, 50 Cent details how Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff tried to resolve the conflict between him and Ja Rule. Allegedly, McGriff asked 50 Cent to leave them alone because of the money involved. 50 Cent insinuated the conflict had something to do with the shooting where he was ambushed and shot. Since then, Black Child publicly insulted 50 Cent twice in "There's a Snitch in the Club", and "You the Wanksta". In both songs, Black Child details violent actions directed toward 50 Cent.[4] The exchange of insult tracks released from both parties culminated in Ja Rule releasing Blood in My Eye, which was an album that returned additional insults to 50 Cent. Ja Rule eventually tried to quash the feud with 50 Cent by using minister Louis Farrakhan in a televised interview. However, the attempt at peace lost credibility as the interview was scheduled a day before Blood in My Eye was released. As a result, most fans, along with 50 Cent, dismissed the interview as a blatant publicity stunt. Because of the ongoing feud between the two, 50 Cent's labelmates Eminem, Dr. Dre, Obie Trice, D12, DMX, and Busta Rhymes also became involved and released tracks which insulted Ja Rule.[4] Ja Rule later released R.U.L.E. with the successful single "New York" featuring Jadakiss and Fat Joe in which Ja Rule took subliminal shots at 50 Cent. This single prompted 50 Cent to enter a feud with the two featured artists (see article on "Piggy Bank" for details). Although it seemed that the feud was over, Ja Rule returned with a track entitled "21 Gunz".[46] In response, Lloyd Banks and 50 Cent released the track "Return of Ja Fool" on Lloyd Banks' mixtape Mo Money in the Bank Pt. 4, Gang Green Season Starts Now.[46] 50 Cent claimed in 2010 that Ja Rule's beef with him and Shady/Aftermath ruined Ja's career saying, "We just ripped the nigga apart and he hasn't and can't come back from it." In an interview with MTV, Ja Rule stated that his album, The Mirror, would not be continuing any past feuds that he has engaged in. He said: There was a lot of things I wanted to say, and I didn't want there to be any bitter records on the album. Because I'm not bitter about anything that happened [in the past few years].[47] In May 2011, it was confirmed that both Ja Rule and 50 Cent ended the feud. Ja Rule said "I'm cool. We ain't beefing no more. We'll never collaborate. That's just what it is. You don't have to be at war with somebody, but it's also kind of like U.S. and another country that they may not get along with. We don't gotta go to war, but we're not friends either. But we can coincide inside of a world. He's doing him, and he's not thinking about me, and I'm doing me and I'm not thinking about him. In September 2013, in a interview with Angie Martinez on The Angie Martinez show on HOT 97, both Ja Rule and Murder INC CEO/ Producer Irv Gotti acknowledged 50 Cent not only took a toll on Ja Rule's prominence, but along with the Federal Indictment, damaged Murder Inc as a music label. Both Ja Rule and Irv Gotti explained an experience of when they both first heard 50 Cent's single, In Da Club, on the radio and stated the record was "so dope," they had a problem. During the interview, the duo also explained a few experiences surrounding the rap feud including being blackballed from various award shows where the feuding rapper would perform. Both rappers went on to say 50 cent was a hustler and liked his entrepreneurial mentality and they have no problems with him 10 years on. Ja Rule plans to write a book surrounding the whole experience. "[48] Shady/Aftermath The conflict started after 50 Cent signed to Shady Records and Aftermath. Ja Rule stated that he had a problem with Eminem and Dr. Dre for signing someone he disliked.[49] The conflict escalated when Ja Rule released "Loose Change", in which he insulted 50 Cent, called Eminem by the name "Feminem", called Dr. Dre bisexual, and claimed that Suge Knight knew of Dre "bringing transvestites home". The song also includes lyrics that insulted Eminem's family (most notably his daughter) and acquaintances.[49] After the "diss" track mentioned earlier, Eminem made the song "Go To Sleep" with Obie Trice and DMX and "Do Rae Mi" with his group D12 respectively. Busta Rhymes joined the conflict when he was featured on the track "Hail Mary " with Eminem and 50 Cent. The song, which sampled Tupac Shakur's song "Hail Mary", was done partially as a response to Ja Rule's remake Tupac's song, "Pain" (retitled "So Much Pain"). The rappers felt Ja Rule could never amount to Tupac, and so they made the track, mocking him for trying to "imitate" the deceased rap icon. Eminem prevented Ja Rule from appearing on any of the "new" Tupac songs he produced, including those on Loyal to the Game.[50] Discography Main article: Ja Rule discography Studio albums 1999: Venni Vetti Vecci 2000: Rule 3:36 2001: Pain Is Love 2002: The Last Temptation 2003: Blood in My Eye 2004: R.U.L.E. 2012: Pain Is Love 2[51] Independent album 2009: The Mirror Compilation albums 2005: Exodus 2012: Icon Awards and nominations Year Award/Nomination 2001 Source Hip-Hop Music Award Won for Single of the Year "Put It on Me" MTV Video Music Awards nomination for Best Rap Video "Put It on Me" 2002 MTV Video Music Awards Won for Best Hip-Hop Video "I'm Real (Murder Remix)" MTV Video Music Awards nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video "Always on Time" American Music Award nominated for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group "Put It on Me" Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap Album Pain Is Love Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap/Song Collaboration "Livin' It Up" World Music Awards Won for World's Best-Selling Rap Artist BET Awards Won for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist Artist GQ Men of the Year Award Won for Musician of the Year Teen Choice Awards Won for Male Artist of the Year NAACP Image Awards Won for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Artist Soul Train Music Award nomination for Best Rap/Soul or Rap Album of the Year Pain Is Love 2003 Source Award Won for R&B/Rap Collaboration of the Year "Thug Lovin'" American Music Award nomination for Favorite Hip-Hop/R&B Male Artist Grammy Awards nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration "Always on Time" 2004 Source Award Won for Phat Tape Song of the Year "Clap Back" 2009 MTV Video Music Brasil nomination for Hit do Ano (Song of the Year) "Fly" Filmography Film Year Film/Television Role Notes 2000 Turn It Up David 'Gage' Williams Alongside Jason Statham and Pras. 2001 The Fast and the Furious Edwin Plays a supporting role as a street racer. 2002 Half Past Dead Nicolas 'Nick' Frazier Though a sequel was made, Ja Rule did not star in it. 2003 Crime Partners Hitman 2003 Pauly Shore Is Dead Himself 2003 Scary Movie 3 Agent Thompson Minor role 2004 The Cookout Bling Bling/Percival Assmackey 2004 Shall We Dance Hip Hop bar performer 2005 Back in the Day Reggie Alongside Ving Rhames 2005 Assault on Precinct 13 Smiley Supporting role 2006 South Beach Donnie Fox T.V.

    Jeffrey Atkins (born February 29, 1976),[2] better known by his stage name Ja Rule, is an American rapper, singer, and actor from Queens, New York. Born in Hollis, Queens, he debuted in 1999 with Venni Vetti Vecci and its single "Holla Holla". From 1999 to 2005, Ja Rule had several hits that made the top 20 of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, including "Between Me and You" with Christina Milian, "I'm Real (Murder Remix)" and Ain't It Funny with Jennifer Lopez, which both topped the US Billboard Hot 100, the Grammy-nominated #2 hit, "Always on Time" with Ashanti, "Mesmerize" also with Ashanti, and "Wonderful" with R. Kelly and Ashanti. During the 2000s, Ja Rule was signed to The Inc. Records, which was formerly known as Murder Inc. and was led by Irv Gotti. Due from his hits with his fellow collaborators, Ja Rule has earned four Grammy nominations, and has earned six top-ten albums, two of which Rule 3:36 (2000) and Pain Is Love (2001), topped the US Billboard 200. He is also known for some well-publicized feuds with other rappers (in particular 50 Cent and Eminem).

At the age of five his sister died from breathing complications, leaving him as an only child. He attended Public School 134 in Hollis, a school he has described as having a predominantly black student body. He said he got into many fights at the school because of his small size, so his mother transferred him to Middle School 172 in Glen Oaks, which he described as a "white school".[4] Atkins earned his GED in February 2012.[5] Music career Atkins began his rap career in 1993 with his classic hip hop group Cash Money Click. He told Curtis Waller of MTV News that his stage name "Ja Rule" came from a friend who addressed him by that name; other friends called him "Ja".[6] In 1995, he made his first appearance on Mic Geronimo's "Time to Build" which featured Jay-Z and DMX, who were also in their early stages of their careers. In 1998 he had signed with Def Jam, and was also featured on Jay-Z's hit single "Can I Get A..." along with Amil which Ja Rule wrote the hook, and was going to be a Ja Rule solo song, until Jay-Z heard the track. Venni Vetti Vecci (1999) Ja Rule's debut album Venni Vetti Vecci was released in 1999, peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 with 184,000 copies sold in its first week and eventually reached platinum status in the US due to the popularity of the hit single, "Holla Holla" which reached #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[7][8] Rule 3:36 (2000) Ja Rule returned in 2000 with his new single "Between Me and You", which featured Christina Milian which would end up getting Top 40 airplay. "Between Me and You" reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the second single "Put It on Me" featuring Vita and Lil' Mo reached number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100.[7] The music video for "Put It on Me" had also topped the MTV Video Countdown for a week. The second album, Rule 3:36, was released on October 10, 2000 and had debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 with 276,000 copies in its first week, making it Ja Rule's first number one album. The album would be certified triple platinum by the RIAA.[8] Pain Is Love (2001) Ja Rule released his third studio album, Pain Is Love on October 2, 2001 and is considered to be Ja Rule's most commercially successful album of his career. The album spawned three top ten singles, two of them reaching number 1. The first single, "Livin' It Up", featuring Case, reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the second single "Always on Time", which featured Ashanti ended up being Ja Rule's first number 1 hit to top the Billboard Hot 100.[7] The remix of Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Real" which features Ja Rule, also topped the Billboard Hot 100. Like its predecessor, Pain Is Love topped the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 361,000 copies and was certified triple platinum by the RIAA.[8] The album would also receive a Grammy nomination in 2002 for Best Rap Album. By 2007, 3.6 million copies of Pain Is Love had been sold.[9] The Last Temptation (2002) The Last Temptation, Ja Rule's fourth album, was released on November 19, 2002. It featured two hit singles; "Thug Lovin'" (peaked at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Mesmerize" another duet with Ashanti (peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100).[7] The Last Temptation debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 237,000 copies and was certified Platinum by the RIAA in December 2002.[8][10] Blood in My Eye (2003) Ja Rule's fifth album Blood in My Eye, was released on November 4, 2003 under the "Murder Inc." label, which renamed itself "The Inc." several days after the album release. The album was originally planned to be a mixtape, but Murder Inc. had ordered Ja Rule to release an album each year based on the requirements of his contract. The album was described as a "hate" album, directed at artists on G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath. It spawned one hit single, "Clap Back" which reached number 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 and had won him a Source Award for "Fat Tape" song of the year. It peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, selling 139,000 copies in its first week of release. It has since sold over 468,000 copies in the U.S.[10] In October 2003, Ja Rule met with Minister Louis Farrakhan, who wanted to intervene and prevent escalating violence in the feud between Ja Rule and 50 Cent.[11] R.U.L.E. (2004) Ja Rule's sixth studio album R.U.L.E. was released in November 2004 debuting at number 7 selling 166,000 copies in its first week of release. Its lead single was "Wonderful" featuring R. Kelly and Ashanti peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was followed by the street anthem "New York" featuring Fat Joe and Jadakiss which charted at number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. The third single was the love song "Caught Up" featuring Lloyd which had failed to make an impact on the Billboard Hot 100. The RIAA certified R.U.L.E. Gold on January 14, 2005,[8] and by October 2007, the album had sold 658,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[9] Hiatus, departure from Def Jam and initial departure from The Inc. Records (20052009) Ja Rule performing in Fort Hood, Texas, May 13, 2005 On December 6, 2005, The Inc. released Exodus, a greatest hits album whose only new tracks were the song "Me" and intro and outro tracks. Exodus was the last album on Ja Rule's contract with The Inc. After the release of this compilation, Ja Rule took a hiatus from recording music.[2] In 2005, The Inc. Records came under investigation because of drug trades by Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, who was associated with Irv Gotti.[12] This led to Def Jam Recordings refusing to renew The Inc.'s contract. From 2005 to 2006, Gotti searched for other labels until finally reaching a deal with Universal Records (part of the same company as Def Jam). The Mirror and Mpire Music Group (2009) After leaving Murder Inc. Records in 2009, Ja Rule founded his own independent label, Mpire Music Group and recruited new artists while still maintaining friendship with Irv Gotti. The Mirror was to be Ja Rule's seventh album and set for a 2007 release date, however, due to poor reception to singles (partly believed to be due to his beef with 50 Cent), it was pushed back. Tracks from the album leaked online, leading Ja Rule to re-record the album. He eventually decided to release it as a free download in 2009. Pain Is Love 2, prison and Renaissance Project (2012present) In February 2011, it was announced that Ja Rule started working on another album called Pain Is Love 2, naming it after the original 2001 triple platinum album (Pain Is Love). It was planned to have production from the producers on the original Pain Is Love album in order to "recreate magic". Most of the production would be done by 7 Aurelius (who co-produced "Down Ass Bitch"), while Irv Gotti was the executive producer of the album. He had planned on releasing it June 7, although later decided to delay the release date in order to allow more time to perfect the "level and quality of the records" and to avoid "doing an injustice to [his] fans".[13][14][15] Pain Is Love 2 was slated for an October 11, 2011 release date but was pushed back to February 28, 2012.[16] To make up for the delay Ja Rule released a new track called "Falling to Pieces" which was produced by 7 Aurelius. The song samples The Script's "Breakeven".[17][18] On October 2, 2011, another track called "Spun a Web" was released, which was also produced 7 Aurelius and samples Coldplay's "Trouble". The following day a teaser music video premiered on YouTube and the official music video was released on October 11.[19] Pain Is Love 2 was finally released on February 28, 2012, while Ja Rule was serving a two-year sentence in prison for gun possession.

We ain't beefing no more. We'll never collaborate. That's just what it is. You don't have to be at war with somebody, but it's also kind of like U.S. and another country that they may not get along with. We don't gotta go to war, but we're not friends either. But we can coincide inside of a world. He's doing him, and he's not thinking about me, and I'm doing me and I'm not thinking about him. In September 2013, in a interview with Angie Martinez on The Angie Martinez show on HOT 97, both Ja Rule and Murder INC CEO/ Producer Irv Gotti acknowledged 50 Cent not only took a toll on Ja Rule's prominence, but along with the Federal Indictment, damaged Murder Inc as a music label. Both Ja Rule and Irv Gotti explained an experience of when they both first heard 50 Cent's single, In Da Club, on the radio and stated the record was "so dope," they had a problem. During the interview, the duo also explained a few experiences surrounding the rap feud including being blackballed from various award shows where the feuding rapper would perform. Both rappers went on to say 50 cent was a hustler and liked his entrepreneurial mentality and they have no problems with him 10 years on. Ja Rule plans to write a book surrounding the whole experience. "[48] Shady/Aftermath The conflict started after 50 Cent signed to Shady Records and Aftermath. Ja Rule stated that he had a problem with Eminem and Dr. Dre for signing someone he disliked.[49] The conflict escalated when Ja Rule released "Loose Change", in which he insulted 50 Cent, called Eminem by the name "Feminem", called Dr. Dre bisexual, and claimed that Suge Knight knew of Dre "bringing transvestites home". The song also includes lyrics that insulted Eminem's family (most notably his daughter) and acquaintances.[49] After the "diss" track mentioned earlier, Eminem made the song "Go To Sleep" with Obie Trice and DMX and "Do Rae Mi" with his group D12 respectively. Busta Rhymes joined the conflict when he was featured on the track "Hail Mary " with Eminem and 50 Cent. The song, which sampled Tupac Shakur's song "Hail Mary", was done partially as a response to Ja Rule's remake Tupac's song, "Pain" (retitled "So Much Pain"). The rappers felt Ja Rule could never amount to Tupac, and so they made the track, mocking him for trying to "imitate" the deceased rap icon. Eminem prevented Ja Rule from appearing on any of the "new" Tupac songs he produced, including those on Loyal to the Game.[50] Discography Main article: Ja Rule discography Studio albums 1999: Venni Vetti Vecci 2000: Rule 3:36 2001: Pain Is Love 2002: The Last Temptation 2003: Blood in My Eye 2004: R.U.L.E. 2012: Pain Is Love 2[51] Independent album 2009: The Mirror Compilation albums 2005: Exodus 2012: Icon Awards and nominations Year Award/Nomination 2001 Source Hip-Hop Music Award Won for Single of the Year "Put It on Me" MTV Video Music Awards nomination for Best Rap Video "Put It on Me" 2002 MTV Video Music Awards Won for Best Hip-Hop Video "I'm Real (Murder Remix)" MTV Video Music Awards nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video "Always on Time" American Music Award nominated for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group "Put It on Me" Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap Album Pain Is Love Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap/Song Collaboration "Livin' It Up" World Music Awards Won for World's Best-Selling Rap Artist BET Awards Won for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist Artist GQ Men of the Year Award Won for Musician of the Year Teen Choice Awards Won for Male Artist of the Year NAACP Image Awards Won for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Artist Soul Train Music Award nomination for Best Rap/Soul or Rap Album of the Year Pain Is Love 2003 Source Award Won for R&B/Rap Collaboration of the Year "Thug Lovin'" American Music Award nomination for Favorite Hip-Hop/R&B Male Artist Grammy Awards nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration "Always on Time" 2004 Source Award Won for Phat Tape Song of the Year "Clap Back" 2009 MTV Video Music Brasil nomination for Hit do Ano (Song of the Year) "Fly" Filmography Film Year Film/Television Role Notes 2000 Turn It Up David 'Gage' Williams Alongside Jason Statham and Pras. 2001 The Fast and the Furious Edwin Plays a supporting role as a street racer. 2002 Half Past Dead Nicolas 'Nick' Frazier Though a sequel was made, Ja Rule did not star in it. 2003 Crime Partners Hitman 2003 Pauly Shore Is Dead Himself 2003 Scary Movie 3 Agent Thompson Minor role 2004 The Cookout Bling Bling/Percival Assmackey 2004 Shall We Dance Hip Hop bar performer 2005 Back in the Day Reggie Alongside Ving Rhames 2005 Assault on Precinct 13 Smiley Supporting role 2006 South Beach Donnie Fox T.V.

    Jeffrey Atkins (born February 29, 1976),[2] better known by his stage name Ja Rule, is an American rapper, singer, and actor from Queens, New York. Born in Hollis, Queens, he debuted in 1999 with Venni Vetti Vecci and its single "Holla Holla". From 1999 to 2005, Ja Rule had several hits that made the top 20 of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, including "Between Me and You" with Christina Milian, "I'm Real (Murder Remix)" and Ain't It Funny with Jennifer Lopez, which both topped the US Billboard Hot 100, the Grammy-nominated #2 hit, "Always on Time" with Ashanti, "Mesmerize" also with Ashanti, and "Wonderful" with R. Kelly and Ashanti. During the 2000s, Ja Rule was signed to The Inc. Records, which was formerly known as Murder Inc. and was led by Irv Gotti. Due from his hits with his fellow collaborators, Ja Rule has earned four Grammy nominations, and has earned six top-ten albums, two of which Rule 3:36 (2000) and Pain Is Love (2001), topped the US Billboard 200. He is also known for some well-publicized feuds with other rappers (in particular 50 Cent and Eminem).

At the age of five his sister died from breathing complications, leaving him as an only child. He attended Public School 134 in Hollis, a school he has described as having a predominantly black student body. He said he got into many fights at the school because of his small size, so his mother transferred him to Middle School 172 in Glen Oaks, which he described as a "white school".[4] Atkins earned his GED in February 2012.[5] Music career Atkins began his rap career in 1993 with his classic hip hop group Cash Money Click. He told Curtis Waller of MTV News that his stage name "Ja Rule" came from a friend who addressed him by that name; other friends called him "Ja".[6] In 1995, he made his first appearance on Mic Geronimo's "Time to Build" which featured Jay-Z and DMX, who were also in their early stages of their careers. In 1998 he had signed with Def Jam, and was also featured on Jay-Z's hit single "Can I Get A..." along with Amil which Ja Rule wrote the hook, and was going to be a Ja Rule solo song, until Jay-Z heard the track. Venni Vetti Vecci (1999) Ja Rule's debut album Venni Vetti Vecci was released in 1999, peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 with 184,000 copies sold in its first week and eventually reached platinum status in the US due to the popularity of the hit single, "Holla Holla" which reached #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[7][8] Rule 3:36 (2000) Ja Rule returned in 2000 with his new single "Between Me and You", which featured Christina Milian which would end up getting Top 40 airplay. "Between Me and You" reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the second single "Put It on Me" featuring Vita and Lil' Mo reached number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100.[7] The music video for "Put It on Me" had also topped the MTV Video Countdown for a week. The second album, Rule 3:36, was released on October 10, 2000 and had debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 with 276,000 copies in its first week, making it Ja Rule's first number one album. The album would be certified triple platinum by the RIAA.[8] Pain Is Love (2001) Ja Rule released his third studio album, Pain Is Love on October 2, 2001 and is considered to be Ja Rule's most commercially successful album of his career. The album spawned three top ten singles, two of them reaching number 1. The first single, "Livin' It Up", featuring Case, reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the second single "Always on Time", which featured Ashanti ended up being Ja Rule's first number 1 hit to top the Billboard Hot 100.[7] The remix of Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Real" which features Ja Rule, also topped the Billboard Hot 100. Like its predecessor, Pain Is Love topped the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 361,000 copies and was certified triple platinum by the RIAA.[8] The album would also receive a Grammy nomination in 2002 for Best Rap Album. By 2007, 3.6 million copies of Pain Is Love had been sold.[9] The Last Temptation (2002) The Last Temptation, Ja Rule's fourth album, was released on November 19, 2002. It featured two hit singles; "Thug Lovin'" (peaked at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Mesmerize" another duet with Ashanti (peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100).[7] The Last Temptation debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 237,000 copies and was certified Platinum by the RIAA in December 2002.[8][10] Blood in My Eye (2003) Ja Rule's fifth album Blood in My Eye, was released on November 4, 2003 under the "Murder Inc." label, which renamed itself "The Inc." several days after the album release. The album was originally planned to be a mixtape, but Murder Inc. had ordered Ja Rule to release an album each year based on the requirements of his contract. The album was described as a "hate" album, directed at artists on G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath. It spawned one hit single, "Clap Back" which reached number 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 and had won him a Source Award for "Fat Tape" song of the year. It peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, selling 139,000 copies in its first week of release. It has since sold over 468,000 copies in the U.S.[10] In October 2003, Ja Rule met with Minister Louis Farrakhan, who wanted to intervene and prevent escalating violence in the feud between Ja Rule and 50 Cent.[11] R.U.L.E. (2004) Ja Rule's sixth studio album R.U.L.E. was released in November 2004 debuting at number 7 selling 166,000 copies in its first week of release. Its lead single was "Wonderful" featuring R. Kelly and Ashanti peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was followed by the street anthem "New York" featuring Fat Joe and Jadakiss which charted at number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. The third single was the love song "Caught Up" featuring Lloyd which had failed to make an impact on the Billboard Hot 100. The RIAA certified R.U.L.E. Gold on January 14, 2005,[8] and by October 2007, the album had sold 658,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[9] Hiatus, departure from Def Jam and initial departure from The Inc. Records (20052009) Ja Rule performing in Fort Hood, Texas, May 13, 2005 On December 6, 2005, The Inc. released Exodus, a greatest hits album whose only new tracks were the song "Me" and intro and outro tracks. Exodus was the last album on Ja Rule's contract with The Inc. After the release of this compilation, Ja Rule took a hiatus from recording music.[2] In 2005, The Inc. Records came under investigation because of drug trades by Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, who was associated with Irv Gotti.[12] This led to Def Jam Recordings refusing to renew The Inc.'s contract. From 2005 to 2006, Gotti searched for other labels until finally reaching a deal with Universal Records (part of the same company as Def Jam). The Mirror and Mpire Music Group (2009) After leaving Murder Inc. Records in 2009, Ja Rule founded his own independent label, Mpire Music Group and recruited new artists while still maintaining friendship with Irv Gotti. The Mirror was to be Ja Rule's seventh album and set for a 2007 release date, however, due to poor reception to singles (partly believed to be due to his beef with 50 Cent), it was pushed back. Tracks from the album leaked online, leading Ja Rule to re-record the album. He eventually decided to release it as a free download in 2009. Pain Is Love 2, prison and Renaissance Project (2012present) In February 2011, it was announced that Ja Rule started working on another album called Pain Is Love 2, naming it after the original 2001 triple platinum album (Pain Is Love). It was planned to have production from the producers on the original Pain Is Love album in order to "recreate magic". Most of the production would be done by 7 Aurelius (who co-produced "Down Ass Bitch"), while Irv Gotti was the executive producer of the album. He had planned on releasing it June 7, although later decided to delay the release date in order to allow more time to perfect the "level and quality of the records" and to avoid "doing an injustice to [his] fans".[13][14][15] Pain Is Love 2 was slated for an October 11, 2011 release date but was pushed back to February 28, 2012.[16] To make up for the delay Ja Rule released a new track called "Falling to Pieces" which was produced by 7 Aurelius. The song samples The Script's "Breakeven".[17][18] On October 2, 2011, another track called "Spun a Web" was released, which was also produced 7 Aurelius and samples Coldplay's "Trouble". The following day a teaser music video premiered on YouTube and the official music video was released on October 11.[19] Pain Is Love 2 was finally released on February 28, 2012, while Ja Rule was serving a two-year sentence in prison for gun possession. Renaissance Project is the upcoming eighth studio album by Ja Rule which has yet to have a confirmed release date. Recording sessions for the album took place primarily at Mpire Studios in NYC Studio during 2008 to 2011. Production was handled by Rule and several others, including Benzino, 7 Aurelius and Buck 3000. Most of the tracks that were meant for the Renaissance were transferred over to Pain Is Love 2. Ja Rule was set to be released from prison on July 28, 2013, but on May 7, 2013, he was released early.[20] He then announced that a new album is on the way and he is getting offers from major labels and artists wanting to collaborate with him. N.O.R.E announced that Ja will be on a remix to one of the tracks off his latest album, Student of the Game. He is then set to go out on his tour, "40 Days, 40 Nights" tour. He was featured the remix to the track "She Tried" which features Lil Wayne and Birdman, which is off N.O.R.E's latest album Student of the Game. On September 18, 2013, Ja Rule released a track titled "Fresh Out Da Pen". The track had first premiered on Hot 97.[21][22] A few days later he released another new track called "Everything" both produced by Visionary producers, Reefa and Myles William. On September 27, 2013, both of those tracks would be released on iTunes for digital download.[23][24] Also, It was confirmed that Ja Rule returned to The Inc. Records.[citation needed] Acting career Aside from rapping, Ja Rule has established a career as an actor, his first film was a buddy movie with Pras, he famously appeared in The Fast and the Furious. In 2004, he appeared in several movies including Back in The Day with Ving Rhames and Pam Grier and Half Past Dead as Steven Seagal's co-star. He also starred in the movies The Cookout with Queen Latifah and Assault on Precinct 13. In 2013, he starred in I'm in Love with a Church Girl. Personal life Family In April 2001, Ja Rule married Aisha Murray.[25][26][27][28] He also has three children; Brittany (born 1995), Jeff Atkins Jr. (born 2000), and Jordan Atkins (born 2004).[29][30] Legal issues In 2003, he allegedly punched a man in Toronto, who later sued Ja Rule. The issue was settled out of court.[31] In 2004, police investigated whether a feud involving The Inc. led to a fatal shooting outside a nightclub party hosted by Ja Rule and Leon Richardson where they thought he shot Proof of D12.[32][33] On July 1, 2004, Ja Rule was arrested with Don Rhys for driving with a suspended license and possessing marijuana.[34] In July 2007, Ja Rule was arrested for gun and drug possession charges along with Lil Wayne, and Don Rhys who served eight months in prison during 2010 for attempted possession of a weapon stemming from the arrest.[35][36][37] New York Supreme Court judge Richard Carruthers rejected Ja Rule's argument that the gun was illegally obtained evidence.[38][39] On December 13, 2010, Ja Rule received a two-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to attempted possession of a weapon after the aforementioned 2007 concert. On March 8, 2011 Ja Rule's surrender date for his two-year prison sentence was set for June 8.[40] His publicist said that Ja Rule will turn himself in to authorities. He will go to Rikers Island first, then be sent to a state facility in Upstate New York.[41] In July 2011, Ja Rule received an additional 28-month prison sentence for tax evasion, to run concurrently with his state term, failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million in earnings between 2004-2006.[42] He was released from state prison on February 21, 2013, but was immediately taken into federal custody for the tax case, for which he has less than six months remaining on his sentence.[43] Ja Rule was held in Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center and was set be released in July 28, 2013. Ja Rule was released from prison early on May 7, 2013.[20][44] Feuds 50 Cent/G-Unit Records Before signing with Interscope Records, 50 Cent engaged in a well-publicized feud with Ja Rule and his label Murder Inc. Records. 50 Cent claimed that the feud began in 1999 after Ja Rule spotted him with a man who robbed him of his jewelry and also because of Ja Rule "trying to be Tupac".[citation needed] However, Ja Rule claimed the conflict stemmed from a video shoot in Queens because 50 Cent did not like Ja Rule "getting so much love" from the neighborhood.[45] A confrontation occurred in a New York studio where rapper Black Child, a Murder Inc. artist, stabbed 50 Cent, which resulted in him having three stitches.[4] In his book, 50 Cent details how Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff tried to resolve the conflict between him and Ja Rule. Allegedly, McGriff asked 50 Cent to leave them alone because of the money involved. 50 Cent insinuated the conflict had something to do with the shooting where he was ambushed and shot. Since then, Black Child publicly insulted 50 Cent twice in "There's a Snitch in the Club", and "You the Wanksta". In both songs, Black Child details violent actions directed toward 50 Cent.[4] The exchange of insult tracks released from both parties culminated in Ja Rule releasing Blood in My Eye, which was an album that returned additional insults to 50 Cent. Ja Rule eventually tried to quash the feud with 50 Cent by using minister Louis Farrakhan in a televised interview. However, the attempt at peace lost credibility as the interview was scheduled a day before Blood in My Eye was released. As a result, most fans, along with 50 Cent, dismissed the interview as a blatant publicity stunt. Because of the ongoing feud between the two, 50 Cent's labelmates Eminem, Dr. Dre, Obie Trice, D12, DMX, and Busta Rhymes also became involved and released tracks which insulted Ja Rule.[4] Ja Rule later released R.U.L.E. with the successful single "New York" featuring Jadakiss and Fat Joe in which Ja Rule took subliminal shots at 50 Cent. This single prompted 50 Cent to enter a feud with the two featured artists (see article on "Piggy Bank" for details). Although it seemed that the feud was over, Ja Rule returned with a track entitled "21 Gunz".[46] In response, Lloyd Banks and 50 Cent released the track "Return of Ja Fool" on Lloyd Banks' mixtape Mo Money in the Bank Pt. 4, Gang Green Season Starts Now.[46] 50 Cent claimed in 2010 that Ja Rule's beef with him and Shady/Aftermath ruined Ja's career saying, "We just ripped the nigga apart and he hasn't and can't come back from it." In an interview with MTV, Ja Rule stated that his album, The Mirror, would not be continuing any past feuds that he has engaged in. He said: There was a lot of things I wanted to say, and I didn't want there to be any bitter records on the album. Because I'm not bitter about anything that happened [in the past few years].[47] In May 2011, it was confirmed that both Ja Rule and 50 Cent ended the feud. Ja Rule said "I'm cool. We ain't beefing no more. We'll never collaborate. That's just what it is. You don't have to be at war with somebody, but it's also kind of like U.S. and another country that they may not get along with. We don't gotta go to war, but we're not friends either.

Both Ja Rule and Irv Gotti explained an experience of when they both first heard 50 Cent's single, In Da Club, on the radio and stated the record was "so dope," they had a problem.

Both rappers went on to say 50 cent was a hustler and liked his entrepreneurial mentality and they have no problems with him 10 years on. Ja Rule plans to write a book surrounding the whole experience. "[48] Shady/Aftermath The conflict started after 50 Cent signed to Shady Records and Aftermath. Ja Rule stated that he had a problem with Eminem and Dr. Dre for signing someone he disliked.[49] The conflict escalated when Ja Rule released "Loose Change", in which he insulted 50 Cent, called Eminem by the name "Feminem", called Dr. Dre bisexual, and claimed that Suge Knight knew of Dre "bringing transvestites home".

At the age of five his sister died from breathing complications, leaving him as an only child. He attended Public School 134 in Hollis, a school he has described as having a predominantly black student body. He said he got into many fights at the school because of his small size, so his mother transferred him to Middle School 172 in Glen Oaks, which he described as a "white school".[4] Atkins earned his GED in February 2012.[5] Music career Atkins began his rap career in 1993 with his classic hip hop group Cash Money Click. He told Curtis Waller of MTV News that his stage name "Ja Rule" came from a friend who addressed him by that name; other friends called him "Ja".[6] In 1995, he made his first appearance on Mic Geronimo's "Time to Build" which featured Jay-Z and DMX, who were also in their early stages of their careers. In 1998 he had signed with Def Jam, and was also featured on Jay-Z's hit single "Can I Get A..." along with Amil which Ja Rule wrote the hook, and was going to be a Ja Rule solo song, until Jay-Z heard the track. Venni Vetti Vecci (1999) Ja Rule's debut album Venni Vetti Vecci was released in 1999, peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 with 184,000 copies sold in its first week and eventually reached platinum status in the US due to the popularity of the hit single, "Holla Holla" which reached #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[7][8] Rule 3:36 (2000) Ja Rule returned in 2000 with his new single "Between Me and You", which featured Christina Milian which would end up getting Top 40 airplay. "Between Me and You" reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the second single "Put It on Me" featuring Vita and Lil' Mo reached number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100.[7] The music video for "Put It on Me" had also topped the MTV Video Countdown for a week. The second album, Rule 3:36, was released on October 10, 2000 and had debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 with 276,000 copies in its first week, making it Ja Rule's first number one album. The album would be certified triple platinum by the RIAA.[8] Pain Is Love (2001) Ja Rule released his third studio album, Pain Is Love on October 2, 2001 and is considered to be Ja Rule's most commercially successful album of his career. The album spawned three top ten singles, two of them reaching number 1. The first single, "Livin' It Up", featuring Case, reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the second single "Always on Time", which featured Ashanti ended up being Ja Rule's first number 1 hit to top the Billboard Hot 100.[7] The remix of Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Real" which features Ja Rule, also topped the Billboard Hot 100. Like its predecessor, Pain Is Love topped the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 361,000 copies and was certified triple platinum by the RIAA.[8] The album would also receive a Grammy nomination in 2002 for Best Rap Album. By 2007, 3.6 million copies of Pain Is Love had been sold.[9] The Last Temptation (2002) The Last Temptation, Ja Rule's fourth album, was released on November 19, 2002. It featured two hit singles; "Thug Lovin'" (peaked at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Mesmerize" another duet with Ashanti (peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100).[7] The Last Temptation debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 237,000 copies and was certified Platinum by the RIAA in December 2002.[8][10] Blood in My Eye (2003) Ja Rule's fifth album Blood in My Eye, was released on November 4, 2003 under the "Murder Inc." label, which renamed itself "The Inc." several days after the album release. The album was originally planned to be a mixtape, but Murder Inc. had ordered Ja Rule to release an album each year based on the requirements of his contract. The album was described as a "hate" album, directed at artists on G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath. It spawned one hit single, "Clap Back" which reached number 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 and had won him a Source Award for "Fat Tape" song of the year. It peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, selling 139,000 copies in its first week of release. It has since sold over 468,000 copies in the U.S.[10] In October 2003, Ja Rule met with Minister Louis Farrakhan, who wanted to intervene and prevent escalating violence in the feud between Ja Rule and 50 Cent.[11] R.U.L.E. (2004) Ja Rule's sixth studio album R.U.L.E. was released in November 2004 debuting at number 7 selling 166,000 copies in its first week of release. Its lead single was "Wonderful" featuring R. Kelly and Ashanti peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was followed by the street anthem "New York" featuring Fat Joe and Jadakiss which charted at number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. The third single was the love song "Caught Up" featuring Lloyd which had failed to make an impact on the Billboard Hot 100. The RIAA certified R.U.L.E. Gold on January 14, 2005,[8] and by October 2007, the album had sold 658,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[9] Hiatus, departure from Def Jam and initial departure from The Inc. Records (20052009) Ja Rule performing in Fort Hood, Texas, May 13, 2005 On December 6, 2005, The Inc. released Exodus, a greatest hits album whose only new tracks were the song "Me" and intro and outro tracks. Exodus was the last album on Ja Rule's contract with The Inc. After the release of this compilation, Ja Rule took a hiatus from recording music.[2] In 2005, The Inc. Records came under investigation because of drug trades by Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, who was associated with Irv Gotti.[12] This led to Def Jam Recordings refusing to renew The Inc.'s contract. From 2005 to 2006, Gotti searched for other labels until finally reaching a deal with Universal Records (part of the same company as Def Jam). The Mirror and Mpire Music Group (2009) After leaving Murder Inc. Records in 2009, Ja Rule founded his own independent label, Mpire Music Group and recruited new artists while still maintaining friendship with Irv Gotti. The Mirror was to be Ja Rule's seventh album and set for a 2007 release date, however, due to poor reception to singles (partly believed to be due to his beef with 50 Cent), it was pushed back. Tracks from the album leaked online, leading Ja Rule to re-record the album. He eventually decided to release it as a free download in 2009. Pain Is Love 2, prison and Renaissance Project (2012present) In February 2011, it was announced that Ja Rule started working on another album called Pain Is Love 2, naming it after the original 2001 triple platinum album (Pain Is Love). It was planned to have production from the producers on the original Pain Is Love album in order to "recreate magic". Most of the production would be done by 7 Aurelius (who co-produced "Down Ass Bitch"), while Irv Gotti was the executive producer of the album. He had planned on releasing it June 7, although later decided to delay the release date in order to allow more time to perfect the "level and quality of the records" and to avoid "doing an injustice to [his] fans".[13][14][15] Pain Is Love 2 was slated for an October 11, 2011 release date but was pushed back to February 28, 2012.[16] To make up for the delay Ja Rule released a new track called "Falling to Pieces" which was produced by 7 Aurelius. The song samples The Script's "Breakeven".[17][18] On October 2, 2011, another track called "Spun a Web" was released, which was also produced 7 Aurelius and samples Coldplay's "Trouble". The following day a teaser music video premiered on YouTube and the official music video was released on October 11.[19] Pain Is Love 2 was finally released on February 28, 2012, while Ja Rule was serving a two-year sentence in prison for gun possession. Renaissance Project is the upcoming eighth studio album by Ja Rule which has yet to have a confirmed release date. Recording sessions for the album took place primarily at Mpire Studios in NYC Studio during 2008 to 2011. Production was handled by Rule and several others, including Benzino, 7 Aurelius and Buck 3000. Most of the tracks that were meant for the Renaissance were transferred over to Pain Is Love 2. Ja Rule was set to be released from prison on July 28, 2013, but on May 7, 2013, he was released early.[20] He then announced that a new album is on the way and he is getting offers from major labels and artists wanting to collaborate with him. N.O.R.E announced that Ja will be on a remix to one of the tracks off his latest album, Student of the Game. He is then set to go out on his tour, "40 Days, 40 Nights" tour. He was featured the remix to the track "She Tried" which features Lil Wayne and Birdman, which is off N.O.R.E's latest album Student of the Game. On September 18, 2013, Ja Rule released a track titled "Fresh Out Da Pen". The track had first premiered on Hot 97.[21][22] A few days later he released another new track called "Everything" both produced by Visionary producers, Reefa and Myles William. On September 27, 2013, both of those tracks would be released on iTunes for digital download.[23][24] Also, It was confirmed that Ja Rule returned to The Inc. Records.[citation needed] Acting career Aside from rapping, Ja Rule has established a career as an actor, his first film was a buddy movie with Pras, he famously appeared in The Fast and the Furious. In 2004, he appeared in several movies including Back in The Day with Ving Rhames and Pam Grier and Half Past Dead as Steven Seagal's co-star. He also starred in the movies The Cookout with Queen Latifah and Assault on Precinct 13. In 2013, he starred in I'm in Love with a Church Girl. Personal life Family In April 2001, Ja Rule married Aisha Murray.[25][26][27][28] He also has three children; Brittany (born 1995), Jeff Atkins Jr. (born 2000), and Jordan Atkins (born 2004).[29][30] Legal issues In 2003, he allegedly punched a man in Toronto, who later sued Ja Rule. The issue was settled out of court.[31] In 2004, police investigated whether a feud involving The Inc. led to a fatal shooting outside a nightclub party hosted by Ja Rule and Leon Richardson where they thought he shot Proof of D12.[32][33] On July 1, 2004, Ja Rule was arrested with Don Rhys for driving with a suspended license and possessing marijuana.[34] In July 2007, Ja Rule was arrested for gun and drug possession charges along with Lil Wayne, and Don Rhys who served eight months in prison during 2010 for attempted possession of a weapon stemming from the arrest.[35][36][37] New York Supreme Court judge Richard Carruthers rejected Ja Rule's argument that the gun was illegally obtained evidence.[38][39] On December 13, 2010, Ja Rule received a two-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to attempted possession of a weapon after the aforementioned 2007 concert. On March 8, 2011 Ja Rule's surrender date for his two-year prison sentence was set for June 8.[40] His publicist said that Ja Rule will turn himself in to authorities. He will go to Rikers Island first, then be sent to a state facility in Upstate New York.[41] In July 2011, Ja Rule received an additional 28-month prison sentence for tax evasion, to run concurrently with his state term, failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million in earnings between 2004-2006.[42] He was released from state prison on February 21, 2013, but was immediately taken into federal custody for the tax case, for which he has less than six months remaining on his sentence.[43] Ja Rule was held in Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center and was set be released in July 28, 2013. Ja Rule was released from prison early on May 7, 2013.[20][44] Feuds 50 Cent/G-Unit Records Before signing with Interscope Records, 50 Cent engaged in a well-publicized feud with Ja Rule and his label Murder Inc. Records. 50 Cent claimed that the feud began in 1999 after Ja Rule spotted him with a man who robbed him of his jewelry and also because of Ja Rule "trying to be Tupac".[citation needed] However, Ja Rule claimed the conflict stemmed from a video shoot in Queens because 50 Cent did not like Ja Rule "getting so much love" from the neighborhood.[45] A confrontation occurred in a New York studio where rapper Black Child, a Murder Inc. artist, stabbed 50 Cent, which resulted in him having three stitches.[4] In his book, 50 Cent details how Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff tried to resolve the conflict between him and Ja Rule. Allegedly, McGriff asked 50 Cent to leave them alone because of the money involved. 50 Cent insinuated the conflict had something to do with the shooting where he was ambushed and shot. Since then, Black Child publicly insulted 50 Cent twice in "There's a Snitch in the Club", and "You the Wanksta". In both songs, Black Child details violent actions directed toward 50 Cent.[4] The exchange of insult tracks released from both parties culminated in Ja Rule releasing Blood in My Eye, which was an album that returned additional insults to 50 Cent. Ja Rule eventually tried to quash the feud with 50 Cent by using minister Louis Farrakhan in a televised interview. However, the attempt at peace lost credibility as the interview was scheduled a day before Blood in My Eye was released. As a result, most fans, along with 50 Cent, dismissed the interview as a blatant publicity stunt. Because of the ongoing feud between the two, 50 Cent's labelmates Eminem, Dr. Dre, Obie Trice, D12, DMX, and Busta Rhymes also became involved and released tracks which insulted Ja Rule.[4] Ja Rule later released R.U.L.E. with the successful single "New York" featuring Jadakiss and Fat Joe in which Ja Rule took subliminal shots at 50 Cent. This single prompted 50 Cent to enter a feud with the two featured artists (see article on "Piggy Bank" for details). Although it seemed that the feud was over, Ja Rule returned with a track entitled "21 Gunz".[46] In response, Lloyd Banks and 50 Cent released the track "Return of Ja Fool" on Lloyd Banks' mixtape Mo Money in the Bank Pt. 4, Gang Green Season Starts Now.[46] 50 Cent claimed in 2010 that Ja Rule's beef with him and Shady/Aftermath ruined Ja's career saying, "We just ripped the nigga apart and he hasn't and can't come back from it." In an interview with MTV, Ja Rule stated that his album, The Mirror, would not be continuing any past feuds that he has engaged in. He said: There was a lot of things I wanted to say, and I didn't want there to be any bitter records on the album. Because I'm not bitter about anything that happened [in the past few years].[47] In May 2011, it was confirmed that both Ja Rule and 50 Cent ended the feud. Ja Rule said "I'm cool. We ain't beefing no more. We'll never collaborate. That's just what it is. You don't have to be at war with somebody, but it's also kind of like U.S. and another country that they may not get along with. We don't gotta go to war, but we're not friends either. But we can coincide inside of a world. He's doing him, and he's not thinking about me, and I'm doing me and I'm not thinking about him. In September 2013, in a interview with Angie Martinez on The Angie Martinez show on HOT 97, both Ja Rule and Murder INC CEO/ Producer Irv Gotti acknowledged 50 Cent not only took a toll on Ja Rule's prominence, but along with the Federal Indictment, damaged Murder Inc as a music label. Both Ja Rule and Irv Gotti explained an experience of when they both first heard 50 Cent's single, In Da Club, on the radio and stated the record was "so dope," they had a problem. During the interview, the duo also explained a few experiences surrounding the rap feud including being blackballed from various award shows where the feuding rapper would perform. Both rappers went on to say 50 cent was a hustler and liked his entrepreneurial mentality and they have no problems with him 10 years on. Ja Rule plans to write a book surrounding the whole experience. "[48] Shady/Aftermath The conflict started after 50 Cent signed to Shady Records and Aftermath. Ja Rule stated that he had a problem with Eminem and Dr. Dre for signing someone he disliked.[49] The conflict escalated when Ja Rule released "Loose Change", in which he insulted 50 Cent, called Eminem by the name "Feminem", called Dr. Dre bisexual, and claimed that Suge Knight knew of Dre "bringing transvestites home". The song also includes lyrics that insulted Eminem's family (most notably his daughter) and acquaintances.[49] After the "diss" track mentioned earlier, Eminem made the song "Go To Sleep" with Obie Trice and DMX and "Do Rae Mi" with his group D12 respectively. Busta Rhymes joined the conflict when he was featured on the track "Hail Mary " with Eminem and 50 Cent. The song, which sampled Tupac Shakur's song "Hail Mary", was done partially as a response to Ja Rule's remake Tupac's song, "Pain" (retitled "So Much Pain"). The rappers felt Ja Rule could never amount to Tupac, and so they made the track, mocking him for trying to "imitate" the deceased rap icon. Eminem prevented Ja Rule from appearing on any of the "new" Tupac songs he produced, including those on Loyal to the Game.[50] Discography Main article: Ja Rule discography Studio albums 1999: Venni Vetti Vecci 2000: Rule 3:36 2001: Pain Is Love 2002: The Last Temptation 2003: Blood in My Eye 2004: R.U.L.E. 2012: Pain Is Love 2[51] Independent album 2009: The Mirror Compilation albums 2005: Exodus 2012: Icon Awards and nominations Year Award/Nomination 2001 Source Hip-Hop Music Award Won for Single of the Year "Put It on Me" MTV Video Music Awards nomination for Best Rap Video "Put It on Me" 2002 MTV Video Music Awards Won for Best Hip-Hop Video "I'm Real (Murder Remix)" MTV Video Music Awards nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video "Always on Time" American Music Award nominated for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group "Put It on Me" Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap Album Pain Is Love Grammy Awards nominated for Best Rap/Song Collaboration "Livin' It Up" World Music Awards Won for World's Best-Selling Rap Artist BET Awards Won for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist Artist GQ Men of the Year Award Won for Musician of the Year Teen Choice Awards Won for Male Artist of the Year NAACP Image Awards Won for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Artist Soul Train Music Award nomination for Best Rap/Soul or Rap Album of the Year Pain Is Love 2003 Source Award Won for R&B/Rap Collaboration of the Year "Thug Lovin'" American Music Award nomination for Favorite Hip-Hop/R&B Male Artist Grammy Awards nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration "Always on Time" 2004 Source Award Won for Phat Tape Song of the Year "Clap Back" 2009 MTV Video Music Brasil nomination for Hit do Ano (Song of the Year) "Fly" Filmography Film Year Film/Television Role Notes 2000 Turn It Up David 'Gage' Williams Alongside Jason Statham and Pras. 2001 The Fast and the Furious Edwin Plays a supporting role as a street racer. 2002 Half Past Dead Nicolas 'Nick' Frazier Though a sequel was made, Ja Rule did not star in it. 2003 Crime Partners Hitman 2003 Pauly Shore Is Dead Himself 2003 Scary Movie 3 Agent Thompson Minor role 2004 The Cookout Bling Bling/Percival Assmackey 2004 Shall We Dance Hip Hop bar performer 2005 Back in the Day Reggie Alongside Ving Rhames 2005 Assault on Precinct 13 Smiley Supporting role 2006 South Beach Donnie Fox T.V.

    Anonymous: The sad thing is that these Caucasians are upset and turning red in the face for absolutey no reason. Caucasians are in control of the rap industry so Caucasian rappers will always have the support and the machine to get their music to their white fans. This is the year of the white rapper, they have dominated mainstream HipHop and Emenim was able to drop another platinum album but this one with vast majority of white production and POP features for his people to admire and enjoy. Dont sleep on MGK, he outsold French Montana and don't sleep on Mac Miller he outsold Meek Mill....Macklemore outsold everybody except his brother Eminem but Macklemore has 3 platinum singles to go with his platinum album. Eventually whites won't even need to listen to Black rappers they can simply listen to Yelowolf and Rittz and if that gets boring they can check out Vinnie Pazz and R.A. Who needs Ghostface when you got Action Bronson, who needs Nicky when you got Iggy, who needs LiL Mamma when you got Miley Cyrus. The Takeover.

      Exactly. Eventually its gonna just come down to lyrics and you aren't gonna be able to keep white people from mastering the art. Music isn't some magic thing that only black people can conjure up. It's essentially just math and sometimes it has language arts in it. Soon the the dumb ones will understand that..na..they'll just bitch like its some evil conspiracy.

      sales don't matter if you practice and consume authentic hip hop. support the artists you love by buying their product or going to see them live, and getting your immediate circle of friends to do the same. if we can't do that, it isn't anyone's fault except our own.

    That just further proves that black people are closet racists and just because EM is white they don't listen to his music. Then they say we are racists? Dumb motherfuckers stay losin..Thats why White people will always be the supreme force, because there is too much of you dumb niggars embarrassing the few smart black people.. On the other side, what do you have to say about hiphop legends being fans of Eminem and knowing all his classics? EM got accolades from Rakim, KRS-ONE, Kool G Rap, Redman, Pharoe Monch etc.. Basically every respectable rapper. You niggars still can't accept the fact that EM is a legend and you force yourselves not to listen to him cause he's white when in fact you know every one of his songs like hypocrits and enjoy it. You are a disgrace for the rest of your race and you are just keeping your race from moving forward.

      Whites, like everyone else originate from dark-skinned, original people so what is this 'supreme force' you speak of little man? ''You niggars still can't accept the fact that EM is a legend and you force yourselves not to listen to him cause he's white'' um, no...it's because he makes wack records LOL. Of course he'll get praise from people who know he can spit(like millions of MC's, but do you really think Rakim Allah sits around all day listening to slim shady? lol I don't think so. Eminem probably don't even like his own records lol.

      Em nor any other white rapper does NOT need black fans to be successful anymore. That era is long gone. There are too many white people that listen to hip hop. In fact they are the ones who spend the most money on it, so seek approval from black people is pretty useless and asinine at this point.

      This white can reel of 20 different artists who gave Eminem so called "accolades" which explains why Emenim refers to this portion of his fanbase as "Stans", it also shows the benefits of saying kind words about Marshall so his psychotic stanbase can keep your name relevant in the white world. Why should Black folks who come from a matrlineal culture listen to a white racist rap about killing and raping his own mother, why listen to the homosexual Ken Kaniff skit and why listen to a klansman rap about comic violence, matricide, homosexuality, pedophilia and incest? No need to listen to that filth, I prefer listening to Yaasin Bey (Mos Def) he is from my culture and my community and raps about things I can relate to. LOL, they want us to listen to the nasally voiced racist guy who dyes his hair blonde and impersonates trannies in his music videos.

    The sad thing is that these Caucasians are upset and turning red in the face for absolutey no reason. Caucasians are in control of the rap industry so Caucasian rappers will always have the support and the machine to get their music to their white fans. This is the year of the white rapper, they have dominated mainstream HipHop and Emenim was able to drop another platinum album but this one with vast majority of white production and POP features for his people to admire and enjoy. Dont sleep on MGK, he outsold French Montana and don't sleep on Mac Miller he outsold Meek Mill....Macklemore outsold everybody except his brother Eminem but Macklemore has 3 platinum singles to go with his platinum album. Eventually whites won't even need to listen to Black rappers they can simply listen to Yelowolf and Rittz and if that gets boring they can check out Vinnie Pazz and R.A. Who needs Ghostface when you got Action Bronson, who needs Nicky when you got Iggy, who needs LiL Mamma when you got Miley Cyrus. The Takeover.

On the other side, what do you have to say about hiphop legends being fans of Eminem and knowing all his classics? EM got accolades from Rakim, KRS-ONE, Kool G Rap, Redman, Pharoe Monch etc.. Basically every respectable rapper. You niggars still can't accept the fact that EM is a legend and you force yourselves not to listen to him cause he's white when in fact you know every one of his songs like hypocrits and enjoy it. You are a disgrace for the rest of your race and you are just keeping your race from moving forward.

    I met Lord Jamar and the rest of Brand Nubian (except for Grand Puba who had went solo at the time) a few years ago after a show in Atlanta and got to kick it with them for a few minutes talking hiphop and bullshit. I happen to be white and those dudes were nothing but accepting and respectful. Brand Nubian comes from a different era in hiphop and I think Lord Jamar simply sees the culture going in a different direction than he envisioned it. Eminem is a gifted lyricist but let's not act like he wasn't given a pass for all the racist stuff he was rapping about earlier in his career (i.e. the 'Racist Tapes').

Forget "suburban white kids," YOU seem to be following the "HIP" trend of bashing Eminem simply because too many dudes respect him.

The world has seen the positives that hip hop has brought to the table (the ability to unify people,elevate one's thinking,financial prosperity) and they rushed to join the party (HIP HOP). They use it to get what they want and claim a place in the culture.

      Why was it necessary to call another grown man a dumb ass for voicing his opinion? 1. Hopsin is looking for attention. He's reaching for anything he can find to get some internet buzz. His lack of hip hop knowledge is alarming to the point where he should just be quiet. All the white rappers he named know more about hip hop than him. 2. It's about respect. If one of your parents or grandparents said something you didn't agree with would you call them some dumb old people? If so, then die. 3. Have you ever listened to Brand Nubian? They were super pro black...his comments are not surprising in the least. If you disagree you disagree. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. These younger so called rappers are getting emotional and disrespectful instead of simply saying I disagree. And in Hopsin's case he doesn't really know much anyway...

      what the fuck does that matter? i don't care if it was gandhi or 2pac who made that comment, its still racist. it is what it is. and for a member of such highly respected group in hip-hop i'd say that's even more of an embarrassment that he's calling out white rappers for being white.

Will they be satisfied when Iggy Azelia is the Queen of HipHop since Rolling Stone crowned Eminem the King of HipHop? Emenim has deified himself as the God of rap, the supreme deity of a Black musical artform, an artform born out of pain, poverty, and oppression is now controlled by whites and has a white face at the forefront of its world image. That's the reality of white supremacy. If I go to China town and learn the drums and dance of their Dragon ceremony maybe I can steal their culture and parlay it into a fortune, maybe I can mimic it so well that people outside Asian culture will believe that its not Asian culture it's simply a universal culture. The Asians invited me in as their guest even though I'm not from their culture and Im honored to be a guest and out of respect for their culture Im not going force my norms, mores, and folkways on them or their culture.

      @ the last Anonymous. That's a pretty dumb point. I mean no shit. That's like saying hurricanes happen in many places all over the globe throughout time. It lacks context. Some hurricanes are more severe than others. The scope of the Atlantic slave trade between the late 1400's and the 1900's (Brazil was still shipping Africans over) and the amount of people who were displaced and lost all connection to their culture and people is unparalleled we are talking 10's of millions of people. In the US and in other parts of the Americas it got to points where the slaves were outnumbering the indigenous population and the White population and they had to cut back on the amount of people being shipped despite the fact that many 100,000's would die before even making it over. Nice try though, context matters. Other groups of people can point to places in the world and clearly identify their cultural heritage. Descendants of slaves in the Americas can't. Africa has tonnes of different varied cultures. That's a very distinct psychological experience.

    Wow so Lord Jamar of Brand Nubian is now just some "stupid rapper dude"? Lord Jamar was probably rapping since before Hopsin was born. Lord Jamar IS Hop Hop. Disagree with him all you want, but you still respect your elders. It's kinda funny how the white rappers know more about Lord Jamar that this one "black" one. Hopsin needs to get out of his feelings, stop crying about the rap game, and learn his history.

After a few minutes of haggling the boss finally agrees to a 5% raise, and Sam happily gets up to leave. By the way, asks the boss as Sam is getting up, which three companies are after you? The electric company, water company, and phone company, Sam replied.

      The local church was desperately looking to hire someone to ring the church bell. After over a week of no leads, a fellow shows up asking for the job. The president of the church walks out of his office to interview the job candidate when he notices the man has no arms. Excuse me sir, said the president, but how do you expect to ring the bill without arms? Just watch, said the man confidently, and with that, the man charged toward the bell and banged his face onto it emitting a wonderful loud clang. Wow said the president that was wonderful! Agreed said the secretary coming in that was simply beautiful. Can I see you do it again? asked the secretary, who missed the first performance. Sure said the man, who again charged toward the bell. Unfortunately he tripped on the way and died. Do we even know his name? asked the baffled secretary. I dont know answered the president, but his face sure rang a bell!

      That was because of a bad relationship he had that ended and the girl in question, his girlfriend, was black? That was 15 years ago and you were in diapers, so of course you never heard anything about it. Eminem's best friend is black, all his entourage and friends, D12, slaugtherhouse are all black.

      The brilliant blue water is inviting and appears as glass. The view of nature is pleasing as seagulls pass. I watch as you swim in the deep waters of blue. Your smooth skin glistens, a vision so peaceful and true. I ease into the water and glide a raft across the surface. You lay softly on your stomach for you know the purpose. You feel my hands massage firmly while closing your eyes. Your skin is smooth like silk, my fingers trace as you sigh. You move your hips to guide my hands. I follow the path you lead the best I can. Your body shivers as my fingers play the strings. You begin to purr and welcome the sensation it brings. I lightly push the raft away, your eyes closed still basking in the glow. Your palm against your trembling stomach, as the soft wind blows. Your mind floats into a dream as you drift upon the sea. Nothing to think about your mind filled only with glee.

    I would expect somebody like Hopsin to say that but the first words of the article pretty much explain it: "Hopsin refers to Eminem as being "50 percent" of the rap game, says he wanted guest verses from Macklemore and Yelawolf on "Knock Madness." LMBAO!! The guy wants two white rappers as guests on his album while saying that Emenim is "50%" of rap?! Wonder what rail demographic this guy is pandering to, LOL. Emenim is not 50% of rap music, he's not the hungry mixtape artist or the underground artist struggling to get their music heard. Emenim is not the voice of the oppressed and exploited masses who's only voice in society is through spoken-word over a beat. Calling Lord Jamar a racist is erroneous but calling him names will ingratiate you in the hearts of white folks who reward negroes for being protective of white folks feelings and interests. NOW ask these Uncle Toms and negro-apologists what exactly did Lord Jamar say that was racist in nature.

  • DrPoopMan

    I'm not going to lie. I agree with some of the points that Hopsin made in this article. Obviously Lord Pajammy or whatever the fuck his name is, has an issue with white rappers. The one thing that aggravates me about this article is Lord Jammy said he was ok with Eminem and a very short list of other white rappers. If hopsin is ranting about him dissing Eminem. Then he doesn't know all the details to the story. Which to means, don't say shit. Cause then you just sound ignorant.

  • hoppp

    I dont see ppl hating on his 50% eminem comment because everyone KNOWS that he has a gigantic impact and dominance of rap they just dont say it cuz of the color all of you are like this lord homo being double standard racist with this "white ppl cant rap" type of shit. Hopsin is a great rapper and ohhh, hes black so you fuckin backpackers will act like its a shock that he praises em like that gtfo

  • I love truth and justice

    Eminem is a racist faggot who had a racist tape. You white faggots let it slide and still praise him. Lord Jamr preaches truth and you pink porky demons want to talk shit. Hopsin is a big nose lost soul seller who has never read a book in his life. Lord Jamar is a scholar who has studied the history of you wicked cave mutants whites.

    Word. Listen, I'm 31 and I grew up listening to Brand Nubian, among other MCs. I'm usually inclined to side with the dudes from my era, but truth is truth, and this kid is right. I respect him for havin' the balls to say that, and tellin' it how it REALLY is. Look, I understand that Hip-Hop is a sacred thing to a lot of people, including me, and I'm the first motherfucker complainin' about young new rappers and listeners don't represent it enough. But this shit Lord Jamar is on is just racist, simple as that. He speaks from a place of anger and bitterness, not compassion or intelligence. Not to say he's not an intelligent guy, but even smart motherfuckers get delusional about shit sometimes, and this nigga is way outta line. He's fueled by some kind of foul resentment. I can just sense it. You gotta be careful with niggas like that.

  • Marqus

    Not to defend Lord Jamal, but calling Eminem 50% of the rap game is where the problem is. I don't agree with LJ, but this taking over of rap and making it into a white artform is kinda what he meant. Eminem isn't a factor in urban music, yet he sells so much to white kids that people think he defines what's hip-hop. That's where we start to go wrong. Before you know it, we lose the ability to trendset. It's in the hands of Jimmy Iovine. It's probably always been in his hands to be honest.
