In a few days, Ja Rule will go to prison to begin serving his two-year sentence for weapons charges.
He’s not worried about the things you’d expect a prison-bound man to be stressed about, though. Instead, he’s scrambling to make sure that his latest record will be ready to release before he gets locked up.
“I just want to put it out to the world before I go in,” he says in a new video interview, below. “It’s funny because, I’m about to go to jail, and my main concern is to make sure that I get this album done and out there for the fans.”
He also took the opportunity to publicly walk away from his feud with fellow artist 50 Cent, which played out publicly via Twitter. Though he says the two will never collaborate or get along, the beef has officially been squashed.
“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,” he says. “”I was a little ashamed of myself to be even involved with that. Because I’m like, yo, I’m 35 years old and I’m on Twitter beef? That’s not something I want to entertain, but I’m a man first, so I’m reading s*** like him sending Tweets and little things about me.”
Ja Rule, who plead guilty to the felony weapons charge over 6 months ago, was granted an unusual amount of time before entering prison so that he could finish his album and resolve a federal tax problem.
