- By Bossip Staff Categories: News, We Broke It Here First!

Ja Rule main

This may be a surprise to kids out there, but there was once a time long ago when Ja Rule was more than a punchline. In fact, he used to be one of the biggest music stars in the world. Now, all he is a once-famous rapper that’s on his way to the clink.

One day there will be a movie about his epic decline. Until then, here’s our retrospective on the career of Ja Rule.

    THE FALL OF JA RULE HAPPENED WHEN 50 CENT RELEASED “WANKSTA”.

    • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

      LOL word! I actually still listen to some of J’s music every now & then since it’s of ALOT better quality than some of the garbage out now… however 50 really did kill his career but 50’s career is pretty much dead music wise that is because he’s still doing acting as well as ventures in other business deals.

    • E.C. from D.C.

      I almost never agree with Hannibal but co-sign on all points buuuuttt I think his career was going down when he started rap-singing.

  • this is it

    Say what you want about Ja, he had everyone singing his songs but 50 he came in and just… killed it.

  • Fishy

    Anyone else find it funny that Suge and Vanilla Ice are in a photo together, especially since that whole rooftop incident in the early 90’s?

    • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

      Not aware of the incident but I did find it amusing for Vanilla Ice to be in the pic lol.

      I used to dig him to back in the days lol..

  • BLACK

    rotff at the picture #2

    • that damn sh#$ disturber

      same here…

  • d.

    50’s career is rock bottom at this point. I think that they both are wack. Real hip hop is dead.

  • Dummies

    Ja will always have my respect. At least he “sold” and was successful due to his music and not puttin the next man down to succeed.

    I tell you what…..I bet the Game would pick Ja today over 50’s wack azz!

    -Ja is a better rapper Too!!

    • Chyna

      Ja did a have the ladies buying his CDs.

  • sheezdatruth

    well damn!! that is sad. At least when you hit rock bottom you have to seek god to get up…he will be okay.

  • 100milesperhour

    So he took the picture of him handcuffed to a table?

    • 100milesperhour

      So who took the picture of him handcuffed to a table?

  • Timothy Tim

    He was just DMX Lite. He played himself and that’s why he’s where he is. He shoulda invested in his own career instead of trying to start beefs to stay relevant.

  • Marsonis

    U know thinking about it though it really is kinda sad how all these new rappers seem to show 0 respect for the prev generation…regardless what the previous rappers became they should still be respected and if anything you *cough* 50 cent *cough* should have used what happened to Ja as a warning about what could and ultimately has happened to you but thats alright 50 you keep hanging with that pitbull Chelsea we realize now thats the best you can do….

  • bigmeech

    did anyone read?? wat he wrote on twitter lol

  • thad

  • Lawd da Mercy

    I could never get past the excess crooked teeth in his mouth.
    To even appreciate his music.
    I like pretty, straight, white teeth.
    The song with him and Mary was straight… but I never been moved by his music.
    Wish him well in the clink though:)

  • nigguhs have a mutant "phuck up" gene

    and ja rule is a carrier of that gene

  • bzound

    Ja Rule fell because his fans hop on 50s pee pee and rode it real hard..

  • Higher Than Jordan

    Whats funny is the same style 50 pennies was dissin Jah for is the one he been using for the since GRODT…and killed his carrer…Ironic.

  • kt

    50 still has a lot of money and JA is basically broke,so I don’t think you can put them in the same boat.

  • kt

    They need to learn to re-invent themselves like JayZ,that’s why he is still around so long and making lots of paper.

  • Janga

    YES…Because the deaths of Tupac And Biggie over a feud didn’t teach the Hip Hop community anything. Maybe we should let the rappers sit in a field and just kill each other and then the true talented rappers can live without black folks wanting to kill each other. Black people, WAKE THE F*CK UP!!!

  • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

    LOL the vid was cheesy but the song was a hit! I liked it @ least

  • Chyna

    Ditto. I agree 100%

  • ayo

    dude, you must really hate 50
