Jim Farber of the New York Daily News reviewed Ja Rule’s latest effort ‘Blood in My Eye’, which takes several hits at arch rap rival 50 Cent. Farber says, “Rule’s fifth album obsesses on honed riffs and steely beats. You’ll find none of the candied choruses or tender melodies of his hits, which paired his trademark bark with the golden tones of Ashanti. Luckily, the new riffs roil with exciting menace. Everything sounds coiled and ripped.” The entire review at nydailynews.com has since been removed.
