Ja Rule: Triple Threat Artist, Actor and Author

Ja Rule: Triple Threat Artist, Actor and Author  Interviewed and written by Tocarra Eldridge There are not very many rappers who have the ability to effectively pursue multiple entertainment endeavors. Ja Rule has proven the world wrong and has been unbelievably successful in his accomplishments and is widely recognized as a triple threat in the industry, being a prominent artist, actor and author. I was able to catch up with the remarkable megastar as he shares with me his recent happenings, mainly his role in “I’m In Love with A Church Girl” that was recently released on DVD and Blu-ray.

DaMasta Review

DaMasta – HATRED: Lyrical Therapy When the former urbanized talented group II Far Gone went their separate ways, DaMasta continued to follow his vision as a solo artist. He has currently released his third solo album  HATRED: Lyrical Therapy  after a short heist since dropping  Curse of the 7 .

This albumproves to be one of DaMasta’s best albums yet, as it features Kankakee, Illness (Illinois) long high school poet friend Tara Betts (author of ARC & Hue…featured on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam) and Wild Bill. The album includes production from varies producers such as Unkahmn, DJ-2183, DJ Chrisby, DJ Snow, P.I.G.

HATRED:   Lyrical Therapy  wins over all hip-hop lovers, with true hip-hop productions at its essence. “Shoes-N-Soc
