In a recent video interview with 57thAve.com, Ja Rule addressed Hip Hop unity and how Hip Hop music stacks up against other genres.
“We fighting against other
genres,” explained Ja. “We fightin’ against
motherfuckin’ rock. We fightin’ against pop. We fightin’ against these
other genres of music. We need to be together as a whole and not
separating ourselves between West and East and South. I think New York
is making a strong comeback right now. I think we doin’ our thing, we
got Maino, we got Red Cafe. I think
New York is making a surgence [sic]. I got my acts outta New York, I’m coming
with a crazy album right now. But you know as a whole, it’s not about
New York…it’s about Hip Hop. We all in this together. So when I think
about it, that’s really my feelings on the situation.“
Rule also spoke on his oft-delayed album, The Mirror. “I’m putting together The Mirror: Reloaded. The Mirror got leaked…so I’m putting together all new tracks.“
In the meanwhile, Ja says he’s busy listening to new albums by Jadakiss, Drake and Chester French.
