R&B vixen Ashanti and rapper Ja Rule are to combine their respective talents this year and re-team for a joint tour!

Details below…


After a string of successful sold out shows internationally last year, listeners of the Murder Inc duo will once again get a chance to see the pair in the flesh when they kick of their joint tour on August 25th in New York City. It’ll no doubt provide much needed revitalisation for Stateside fans who have long wanted to see the ‘Down 4 You’ dominate together.

Peep the dates…

ja-rule-ashanti
We don’t doubt Ashanti and Ja Rule’s ability at commanding an audience, and the announcement of the duo’s return definitely has us feeling all sorts of nostalgic. Bring on August!

  2. Fancy BISH June 4, 2016

    OK before the jokes…this will probably be enjoyable with the right setlist and background vocalists…just don’t try to copy Bey & Jay on stage…cause people will call it the Flavor Aid Tour lol…but Ashanti STAY SNATCHED tho…homegirl aging like fine wine chile…her face should be in the dictionary under black don’t crack lol…yaaaas…

    • Maurice June 4, 2016

      why would they try and do bey and jay?
      they just gonna have agood time, get their coins and have people feeling nostalgic.
      stfu bringing beyonce in this. obsessed much?

  3. King Mark111 /.\ June 4, 2016

    They were IT during their small run. They have classic tho.

    • Fancy BISH June 4, 2016

      Yaas, their music still sounds fresh to this day!

  4. Annalise June 4, 2016

    I would actually go and watch this to reminisce. Why didn’t they think of this earlier?

  5. Keon June 4, 2016

    I’ll give it a go however i wont go but this is good time for both of them to start new music or release something hott with a video and do it.
    Ashanti hustling tho.
    I see you ma.

    • MusicLife June 4, 2016

      “I’ll give it a go however i wont go”
      🤔😕🤔
      What in the absolute fvck does this even mean? What are you giving a go if you won’t go? Reading is fundamental.

  6. Ayyseify June 4, 2016

    Y’all saying they had hits together? What 2 songs?… And nowadays let’s be real no one is checking for them.. I see this going to a ballroom. Deff not a arena tour.

    • Ohyeaitsme June 4, 2016

      They never stated was arena tour. And they actually 5 hit songs together that were all in the top ten. And songs they did separately that were hits. Don’t try to discredit someone and what they’ve done because they been touring earlier this year and each show was sold out. So someone is checking just not you. 😉

      • MERCEDES June 4, 2016

        I Agree with u I could not said that any better thanks for that

      • checkyourself June 5, 2016

        No Ja Rule and Ashanti don’t have 5 hit songs together as a duo. yall needa stop trying to give them as a DUO more credit than they deserve., yall be gassn them as a duo. The only hit songs they have TOGETHER as a DUO right cause yall want them to be sme fierce duo like Hov and B thats why yall stay gassn Ja rule and ashanti as a duo. but uh the only songs they have that were a hit are songs Always on time (it went #1) and Mesmerize (a top ten hit i belive). Stop trying to credit them as a duo for wonderful and the fat joe song they featured in because remeber all the hype is about them as a DUO

    • MERCEDES June 4, 2016

      they Dont have to do big stadiums tour thats number one and number two is they got a lot of hits always on time,what’s love, mesmerize,down 4 u,wonder, the pledge must I go on so stop hatein they make just as much money as any body else that’s on tour

      • checkyourself June 5, 2016

        they needa do big stadiums since ashanti’s fans steadily compare her and ja rule as a duo to hov and B. A lot of ashanti fans on twitter swear all day that they the better duo than Hov and B when theyre not because for one Hov and B are powerful on their own and an even more powerful duo and have made history together. their song CIL they did together has had a big cultural impact. None of the songs Ja Rule and Ashanti done as a duo never have. Yall also love to credit ja rule and ashanti as a duo for songs like wonderful the pledge & whats but those songs ja rule and ashanti didnt do just the two of them so stop counting in those songs. they only have mesmerize and always on time together and three other unpoular wack songs that didnt get no shine. they only have two bangers together as a duo

    • Molly June 4, 2016

      They have more iconic hits together than bey and her pet camel.

      • SlaveMaster June 4, 2016

        No b****.

        3BC, CIL, DV, UU, DIL, OTR >>>

      • XYZ June 5, 2016

        She said iconic hits…not every song…bc and cil are the only iconic songs of bey and camel.

  7. LB June 4, 2016

    Beyonce and Camel wish this could have a tour this big.

  8. DatDude June 4, 2016

    About time I seen their mini valentines show and it was Lit and an amazing show. Whoever saying they don’t got classic hits sure needs to get in their music history books lol ijs They slay back in the days and still can if they release some new music together..

    • MusicLife June 4, 2016

      Me to I saw them then too and I would see them again, very nostalgic indeed and great show and music. Classic hits tbh

  9. #JACKIE June 4, 2016

    Ashanti can still pull in a crowd contrary to popular belief. Bey and Jay could never😂

    • Annalise June 4, 2016

      You’re an idiot! Bey + Jay were playing at 90,000 seat Stadiums, meanwhile Ashanti and Ja Rule are playing at 2,100 seat Theaters 😆 . It’s so cute that you tried tho! Weak-ass Bītch! 😆

      • Annalise June 4, 2016

        RECEIPTS
        ——
        1) Beyonce + Jay-Z performed at Rose Bowl Stadium with 96,994 people in attendance
        2) Ashanti + Ja-Rule are going to be playing at Playstation Theater, which seats 2,100 at most
        3)3) HEara performed at Drai’s Nightclub which has a 2,500 seat capacity, and he still didn’t sell out 😆

      • #JACKIE June 4, 2016

        Of course this pressed ass b**** would take my comment seriously. Girl go take a f****** dirt nap you dimwit ass høe.

      • Molly June 4, 2016

        @JJackie You know the hive are true idiots esp this fat hoê ANALise.

      • #JACKIE June 4, 2016

        It’s so annoying and predictable, just like its about to say we’re the same person. Wait for it….

      • Annalise June 4, 2016

        LMAO you weren’t be sarcastic though, you dumbass-maggot-HŒ! 😆 You’re an imbecile, and now that you’ve been dragged you’re trying to bad-pedal and pretend you weren’t being serious. KIIII awww cry some mo’ tears sis! go cut yourself a switch, so I can whip you!

      • #JACKIE June 4, 2016

        Girl when have I ever backed down from your shitty, loose ass? 🙄 Keep seething høe.

      • Annalise June 4, 2016

        Chileeeeee I thought you were dead!!! 💀 Not this stupid ass irrelevant Bïtch @Møldy-Vägina bringing her troll account to co-sign (aka the same one she was ‘beefing’ with a few weeks ago). You were not being sarcastic, you made an idiotic comment and got slaughtered for it. Bring yo punk ass to London so I can knock u out !!

      • Annalise June 4, 2016

        Honestly “Molly” (the bīracial maid with no c****) the world would be a lot better off without you and your 28383 personalities. Cling to your internet homegirls for as long as you can, because once they leave your broke-genderconfused ass on the curb and move on, you’ll be left with no1 and you’ll probably do something terrible to yourself. You’re in my prayers tho ! 😘

      • Annalise June 4, 2016

        BUT Isn’t responding to my comments, “paying me attention” though? But this fugly-man-whoore wants to say i’m “stupid”. LMAO have a seat, you’re tired af!

  10. Molly June 4, 2016

    I love Ashanti she has a better discography than Bey

    • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 4, 2016

      And Ciara *sips cuervo with no chaser*

      • Molly June 4, 2016

        Ciara discography shîts on Beys too .

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 4, 2016

        bwahahaha

  11. Lake Erie June 4, 2016

    I’m here for it. Wish they was coming to my city.

  12. No favs, just here for the music June 4, 2016

    Ahhhhhhh the nostalgia!

  13. BeyKnowlesBest June 4, 2016

    Im here for it, Ashanti all over my playlist !

  14. Coolness June 4, 2016

    Ashanti and Ja Rule’s run as mainstream’s go-to R&B songstress and rapper respectively may have been cute but they sure did rack up some serious hits within that short period of time! Their collaborations; What’s Love, Always On Time, Happy, Down 4 U and Mesmerise are Urban music classics. Add the hits they had on their own and this is the perfect concert for a trip down memory lane. Ashanti is mad gorgeous though. Homegirl doesn’t look a day over 25 and she’s actually 10 years older than that. One of the baddest ever, tbh.

  15. Keon June 4, 2016

    @musiclife when i typed I’ll give it a go however I won’t go meant I respect the tour and i understand the hustle but it’s not appealing enough for me to buy a ticket.

  16. Keon June 4, 2016

    Ppl please stop comparing people to BEYONCE, really beyonce been on since 16 and idk how long ashanti has been but she’s great i like her. She’s not on bey level as far as anything so stop.

  17. The Great Lacefronce. June 4, 2016

    Beybooncé and monkey z could NEVA have such an iconic discography

  18. Slayty Perry (Prism’s 5 Billion Streams) June 4, 2016

    I’m here for Queen Ashanti. She’s on her independent grind and still cashing checks. Gwen Stefani needs to take notes. This is how you reach out to fans even though the GP ain’t here for you anymore. They’re smart by booking small venues.

  19. Molly June 4, 2016

    I always knew fat musty troll analise was obsessed with me but GODDAMN leaving 3 back to back comments in a row chile find a hobby, lose some weight, get a man you UK reject. #YourMotherShouldaSwallowedYou

  20. Yes girl June 4, 2016

    I’ll pass, no thanks.

  21. Annalise June 4, 2016

    NOT @Møldy-Vågina exposing herself yet again LMAO 😆 ! 2 of my comments were at @Jack-off, NOT you. Why would you think they were addressed to you, unless you were the SAME person! LOL!!! EYE AM LIVINGG!

    LMAOOO who left a comment to who first? Yet i’m the one who’s ‘obsessed’ with you??? I can’t @ the Maid, being so stressed over me! It will probably bust one of it’s arteries over this scalping!!!! KIII!

    • Molly June 4, 2016

      You are tho sis like you didn’t mention my name in the lemonade platinum post sit yo dumb delusional ass down.

  23. Annalise June 4, 2016

    What an idiot and a try-hard. Clearly the 3rd comment was a correction since TGJ blocked out “Mølly the Biracial maid with no C-L-Í-T”. You’re worthless trash, the only reason i’m bothering to scalp you is because you replied first!!!! Stay WIT IT you scary ass HŒ!

    • Molly June 4, 2016

      Scarey hoë? Im the least one scared of you.

  24. Annalise June 4, 2016

    LMAOOO I CAN’T!!!!! But didn’t the biracial-maid with no C-L-Î-T claim she was going to call the fedz if punched her? If that’s not ‘SCARY ASS HŒ”, then I don’t know what is 😆 !!!

  25. Jamon June 4, 2016

    I wish they were bringing it here to Texas. I would definitely purchase a ticket. Ashanti is still my favorite!! Hopefully this is the first step to a comeba4for both of them. Murder Inc has some classic hits. I still have them on my Playlist

  26. Rome June 4, 2016

    Is it me or did puff start something? It seems like everybody and they mom are doing these reunion type of tours. But I’m not mad at all. It looks like I will going to a couple of concerts this summer. Yaaassss

  27. MUSICHEAD June 4, 2016

    I hated hearing Ja Rule and Ashanti on the radio all day everyday. So yours truly will pass on this tour but I wish them well.

  28. Day June 5, 2016

    I hope to see a Roca Fella reunion Jay will cash in Big on that but we all know Dam and the politics won’t allow that to happen.

  29. CherylSoldierr June 5, 2016

    That Selena Stan is such a kii

  30. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timelyyou June 5, 2016

    Good for them and Not that many people know who Ja rule & Ashanti is in today world of music
