Ja Rule Comments Spark Controversy

Published: Thursday 13th Sep 2007 by Sam
Ja Rule was interviewed in the current issue of Complex Magazine. The rapper spoke on the Jena 6 controversy, politics, 50 Cent and homosexuality. Ja’s comments on the latter, inparticular, have caught the attention of the mainstream press – some of whom have branded Ja, real name Jeffrey Atkins, ‘homophobic’. Check out quotes from the interview below:

On Congress & Homosexuality:

“…They got my man Doug Morris under fire and shit, they got him going down to go speak to Congress about hip-hop lyrics, are you fucking serious? There’s a fucking black kid right now about to get 25 years for having a fight with some white kids over hanging the nooses over the white tree, lets get to that. Let’s get into shit like that, because that’s what’s tearing up America, not me calling a woman a bitch or a hoe on my rap songs. And if it is, then we need to go step to Paramount, and fucking MGM, and all of these other motherfuckers that’s making all of these movies and we need to go step to MTV and Viacom, and lets talk about all these fucking shows that they have on MTV that is promoting homosexuality, that my kids can’t watch this shit. Dating shows that’s showing two guys or two girls in mid afternoon. Let’s talk about shit like that! If that’s not fucking up America, I don’t know what is.”

On 50 Cent:

“That’s the difference people don’t understand. Everyone talks about the beef I had with 50; he has beef with all types of rappers, but I’m the only rapper who went and handled my business and went and hollered at him man to man… And the moment I heard he had a record about me, I knew where he resided, I knew where he hung out, I went and seen and him. “Homie, you have a problem with me? What’s happening? You ain’t got to rhyme about it, I’m right here in front of your face.” So that’s how our situation took place, and I handled my business with 50 and 50 knows that. That’s why I’m such a threat to him, that’s why he doesn’t like me so much.”

    On his comments with Congress and homosexuality…I think he has a point…Congress, the media, and people as a whole focus on the wrong topics at hand and I hate to see meaningful topics such as Jena 6 get hardly any play and yet you see homosexuality being publicized all over the net and television…what are we teaching our kids and ourselves for that matter. I don’t have a problem with homosexuality, but I do have a problem when it’s presented in a unsuitable way.
