Ja Rule Slams ESPN For Dissing Him Over Old Performance: ‘Have Some Respect for an Icon!’

Published: Monday 27th Jul 2020 by Rashad

2019 wasn’t exactly the best year for Ja Rule.

    icons dont have their careers shut down by losers like 50 cent. icons do not encourage waypipo to go party in the caribbean, trash everything and steal from Black Carib business owners and hard laborers. nothing iconic about this ni66a except for the level of whoop ass he deserves from the entirety of our black community. f_ck ja rule

    No matter what you think of the man, ESPN’s post was dumb and unprofessional as Ja Rule said. That’s some TMZ stuff.
