Normally, when a prominent rapper decides to bid adieu to the game, a sense of anguish takes over. When Jay Z first announced he was chucking deuces to the rap industry after the release of The Black Album, we were shell-shocked. We’re sure when Drake elects to call it quits, millions of people will certainly cry waterfalls on his behalf. Last week, one of rap’s past favorites went on Twitter to his announce that his next album would be his last.
“My best shall be my last…”, tweeted Ja Rule. That’s right, Ja Rule is taking the plunge into retirement after the release of his final album COUP DE GRÂCE. He informed his fans late last weekend of his decision and that after nearly 20 years in the game, that it was time to gracefully bow out. While a lot of people will forever remember his beef with 50 Cent and how he suffered a massive loss, we have to remember the success he obtained prior to his turmoil.
Hate it or love it, what Ja Rule did for the rap game will always be remembered.
