Ja Rule Stops By TRL

stopped by MTV’s Total Request Live on Monday to premiere his new video ‘Mesmerize’ featuring Ashanti. Ja brought up the 50 Cent beef and wanting to do a bring the peace kind of concert with him, Eminem, Jay-Z, DMX, and everyone that has a beef with someone else. What he didn’t comment on, and shame on MTV for at least not asking, was the police raid of Murder Inc. last week. After he left, John Norris said Ja had declined comment. Read on for a transcript.

TRL: Please welcome ja rule.

with ja rule.

Ja Rule: Yeah, yeah.

TRL: Congratulations man on the cover of “the source”.

Ja Rule: Thank you.

TRL: That’s big right there.

Ja Rule: Much loved.

TRL: And the article among other things this rum mored beef with 50
cent. If there is anything you could say to clear up that issue, what would
it be.

Ja Rule: I mean, you know, hip-hop beef these days are really overrated
and fake and, you know, with that dude, you know, don’t really have a problem,
he’s a snitch, and like —

TRL: Sounds like you do have a problem calling him a snitch.

Ja Rule: I mean it is it is i call a spade a spade i wouldn’t lie about
it and i really don’t want to trouble myself with people who work with
the police and things like this so I’m here doin’ my thing and, you know,
i wish him all the luck in the world, i wish him all of my kids. 
I’m going on a stop the violence tour with all the mayors and stuff you
know I’m into makin’ piece with and unity and stuff but when people ain’t
into it, they just ain’t into it, you know what I mean.

TRL: You have to make that consorted effort.

Ja Rule: Maybe one day we could all get together. We was talkin’ about
throwin’ it mbe a stop the violence tour, me, M.J 50, eminem, all the dudes
that got beefs

TRL: Y’all want to see that.

Ja Rule: Yllan to see that


TRL: Talk to the promoters, that would be real positive why do you think
hip had has the beef goin’ on all the time, back to K.R.S.-1 and mcian.

Ja Rule: I think with the recession and everything since 9-11 you know
a lot of sales have been down and i think a lot of dudes tryin’ to get
record sales runnin’ around makin’ battle records and pickin’ fights with
this artist or that artist but none of it is real you know you might see
guys in the club together you know doin’ the shimmy here like this then
they on records killin’ each other you know what I mean? So none of it
is really real a lot of these guys just runnin’ around just talkin’ and
I think a lot of it got to do with they hate themselves right now man but
me i like to base my sales things on makin’ good records, good music. At’s
what it’s a about, you know.

TRL: Definitely. Definitely. Keep it positive, no doubt. Let’s talk
about your no. 8 request jay-z fe beyonce “’03 bonnie & clyde”. Congrats
to jay chosen as “vibe’s” best solo artist 2002.

record. It’s all G.It never hurts.
