After Thursday night’s (16) 30th Anniversary Def Jam concert took over the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Ja Rule was courted backstage by MTV News to discuss the epic Murda Inc reunion of the night. However, during that chat the Queens rapper also revealed that there maybe “1 or 2” unreleased collaborations that he did with Jay Z and DMX. After the trio’s group album never came to fruition, a few things were left on the cutting room floor.
“We tried to deliver that album. It was a situation where egos all just played a part in its demise,” Ja Rule told MTV News on Thursday night (October 16) after he performed at the Def Jam 30th anniversary concert at Brooklyn, New York’s Barclays Center.”
Ja points the finger to Hov and X’s early rap rivarly as a factor a why the album was never made.
“We couldn’t get X and Jay in the same room, from long ago, their storied battle on the pool table, guns out [and] all of that,” Rule said, recalling the rap battle Jay and X had before the both became famous. “That carried over into our careers and we were all trying to do our thing separately and it carried over. It was hard to get all of us into a room to do what we needed to do.”
