Watch: Ja Rule & Ashanti Perform ‘Always on Time’ At ‘Def Jam 30’

Published: Friday 17th Oct 2014 by David


Successes of yesteryear were celebrated in NYC hours ago, revisited to honour the ‘Def Jam’ as it celebrated its 30th birthday!

Of course, no ‘Def Jam‘ party would be complete without an appearance from one of its brightest stars Ashanti, who enjoyed a hit-kissed run at the label before parting ways with them following the release of 2004’s ‘Concrete Rose.’

Now, as she continues to embark on an independent journey, the ‘Only U’ chanteuse took to Brooklyn’s Barclays Centre to party with the label and perform the hit single ‘Always on Time’ besides her long time friend and collaborator Ja Rule.

Check ’em out below…

      I was literally counting down to when one of you pressed, attention-seeking goons would mention Beyoncé.

    • Marcus October 17, 2014

      You are delusional! Lets compare the hits.

    • Beysus October 17, 2014

      Let’s compare the relevance…

    Ja and Ashanti got hits! Murda Inc was a force

  4. NOLIES October 17, 2014

    Ashanti is still so pretty. Those 02-03 R&B meets thug made some great songs… Ja-Rule & Ashanti Ja-Rule & Ashanti Beyoncé & Jay-Z Mariah & Jadakiss Mariah & Busta JLO & Ja-Rule and so many many more. Good years to be a preteen…

    Ja & Ashanti sounded great and the chemistry is still there. But I can’t help but wonder, how Ashanti use to mess with Irv & Ja Rule at the same time.

    • DJ October 17, 2014

      Girl… where df do u get these false ass teas from? You sounded smart at the beginning of your statement but towards the end u sounded just like beyonce trying to read proper without a ged.

      Eh I wouldn’t say they started anything. Just to name one song with soft singing ang gangster rappers – breakdown mariah Carey. And countless, countless other songs before aaliyah and x collaborated

      • Mark111 October 18, 2014

        Breakdown, Bone Thugs were rap singing, but the ruff rap voice as you see here. I said this since 2001, the day Aaliyah passed, Ashanti came out of NOWHERE and blew up.

    • BeyRihLiyah October 17, 2014

      Slay-Liyah #Queen

  6. credits October 17, 2014

    That was irv in the beginning right? as soon as ashanti hits the stage, notice how he disappears…

  7. RayRay October 17, 2014

    Let’s not forget who started this worldwide urban trend. Miss Mariah Carey and O.B.D! They started the trend of good girl meets thug.

    • Mark111 October 18, 2014

      Nope, it was Biggie and Fath/MJB with One More Chance / Stay with Me 6 months before MC.

  8. Mikey October 17, 2014

    Now y’all KNOW that was the s***!! Ashanti and Ja still got the chemistry they had back in the day, and we ALL know they got some hits! Ashanti looks amazing and Ja looks great as well! Amazing performance, if these two did a joint US tour I would be all over that!!!
