Ja Rule Plans ‘40 Days/40 Nights’ World Tour Following Prison Release

Ja Rule

It’s been a busy year for Ja Rule, who is currently putting the finishing touches on two new albums before beginning his 18-month prison sentence on gun possession charges. The former Murder Inc. rapper hasn’t done much preparation for his bid, but he already knows the first thing he’s going to do upon his release.

“My ‘40 Days/40 Nights Around the World’ tour is being set up right now,” Rule exclusively tells Rap-Up.com. “I want the bus to come straight to the prison and take me to my first show. Put my family on the bus, have them come to the first few cities, send them back home, and let me keep going. It’ll be international; 40 cities in 40 nights. I’ll be so fresh and ready to go.”

The Queens MC is currently prepping two albums before beginning his jail stint on June 8. P.ain I.s L.ove 2, a sequel to 2001’s triple platinum Pain Is Love, is scheduled for a June 7 release and will showcase Ja’s thoughts about his impending sentence. The Renaissance Project, recorded concurrently, will focus on uptempo party anthems, though a release date has yet to be set.

If all goes according to plan, P.ain I.s L.ove 2 will be issued not only digitally and physically, but as an application for your smartphone in the form of a “living album,” capable of adding new songs, videos, and remixes instantly to the purchaser’s phone.

While this will be Rule’s first incarceration, he’s been getting advice on how to handle his bid from Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff, his close friend currently serving a life sentence on murder conspiracy charges. One thing that will immediately change for him in prison: no more mentally writing rhymes. “I haven’t written rhymes in over 10 years,” he admits. “It was all in my head. I’m going to go in jail and write because it’s just going to be impossible to store all that shit in my brain.”

    when will these dumb rappers learn a valuable lesson-it don’t pay to have guns, not pay taxes, etc. He’s going to serve 18 months in PRISON, away from his family, and this DUMMY is saying the first thing he wants to do when he gets out is perform???? This is what is wrong with the world today we got DUMMIES like this one. I would think this DUMMY would be saying the first thing I want to do when I am released is take a year or so to reconnect with my family!!!! And, who wants to purchase his product anyway his time is long gone. Ask 50 cent!!!!!

    Going to prison is not going to revive his career.

    This what happens when your career stalls and you don’t have a backup plan. I love when rappers get in the game, make money, and branch out and become successful business people

  14. What Happened?: Ja Rule | RapConQueso

    [...] I guess I failed to mention tax evasion charges, which he is expected to serve the rest of his time for in a New York City jail. His expected release is sometime in July (2013). He also has his Renaissance Project, an album he was working on alongside Pain Is Love 2, and (whether you believe it or not) a 40 Days/40 Nights world tour, which was planned before his prison sentence began, and scheduled to start immediately after his release.
