From The Vault: Ja Rule – ‘Down A*S Chick (Ft. Charli Baltimore)’

This week’s From The Vault selection comes from the year 2001 in the form of Ja Rule’s ‘Down Ass Chick’. The song features his then Murder Inc labelmate Charli Baltimore and was released as the 4th single off his ‘Pain Is Love’ album. A moderate hit, ‘Down Ass Chick’ peaked at  #21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and failed to match the success of the other songs released from the LP, all of which peaked in the top 10 of the chart.

O Ja Rule, why has the music industry forsaken thee? He had such an impressive voice and brought a unique sound to Hip-Hop. However, as we all know, 50 Cent put an end to that.

Nonetheless, it is amusing that while 50 accused Ja Rule of singing more than rapping, he himself has adopted the same approach with own records; doing more singing than rapping on many of his hits including ‘Candy Shop’ and ‘Magic Stick’. Now it looks like karma has finally caught up with 50 because he finds himself on the edge of irrelevancy like all the other artists he helped destroy.

    Charli Baltimore – rihanna’s inspiration for the red hair. what ever happened to her?

    I agree with Trent, why is the industry doing Ja like dat? He has that unique voice in hip-hop. I wish he would come back, DMX too.

    I always have and always will love Ja Rule! I have never been a fan of 50 Cent. Much like Kanye, he just ruins it with all of the stupid s*** he says and the unnecessary ass drama.

    Love Ja’s music and I don’t understand how consumers ever thought 50 had more talent than Ja. People will jump on anything if you tell them it is “hot”.
