If you have any business to settle withJa Rule, you might wanna get to him as soon as possible, because his next musical undertaking is probably gonna keep him busy for a loooooong time.
Ja Rule recently announced his very ambitious plan to re-releasehis entire discographyas visual album, making music videos for every single song he’s ever released–beside the tracks that already have their own visuals.
This news was tucked into a series of tweets on Monday, including one that saw Ja responding to a fan and explaining why now was the time to tap into the nostalgia for his old music instead of releasing some new heat. “Music is timeless,” he told this particular fan, later adding that his new album12.Twelve.XIIwould be out this December.
Of course, this announcement–just like all of his tweets–received a lot of replies from people wondering why he’s making a bunch of music videos instead of issuing refunds to Fyre Festival attendees–which, of course, Ja ignored.
He took the time to respond to a lot of fans asking questions about why he’s embarking on this huge undertaking, including those who decided to assume Ja wanting to capitalize off old music must mean he’s running out of money. As the rapper pointed out, shooting dozens of music videos is anything but cheap, and all of this is coming out of his own pockets.
He goes on to say that even though he’s not planning on re-making any videos that are already out there, there is one song he might consider creating a brand new visual for: “Daddy’s Little Baby.”
Making and releasing all of these music videos is definitely going to take a while, but in the meantime, you can catch Ja Rule onGrowing Up Hip Hop: New York.
