Ja Rule talks start of his solo career, working with Jennifer Lopez and Ashanti, if Nas signed with Murder Inc., 50 Cent beef, and more on #DrinkChamps [VIDEO]

To a lot of people, it’s fun to make jokes about Ja Rule, just like it is for them about Bow Wow. But, in both cases, these guys have major hits under their belts. The biggest stars, today, wish they could sell the way that guys like Ja Rule sold, and owned the charts.

Ja Rule had the opportunity to work with many of the biggest names in the industry. In many ways, Ja Rule helped Jennifer Lopez become the star she is, in music. Her first Billboard number one was Ja Rule’s number one.

Recently, Ja Rule stopped by “Drink Champs,” speaking with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN. The interview discussed his Cash Money Clique/TVT days and how his solo career started, plus Mic Geronimo. This progressed into speaking on working with Jennifer Lopez and Ashanti, Nas’ flirtation with Murder Inc., of course, 50 Cent, and more.
