the company you keep is any indication of your own merit, then Def Jam's
rap phenomenon, Ja Rule is destined for greatness. Juggling roles
within DMX's Ruff Ryder camp and
imprint, the native of Hollis, Queens, has been responsible for some of
today's hottest hip hop verses.
Ja's distinctive gravel-stone voice and
fiery presence have blessed projects that include: "Murdergram"
a single on the "Streets is Watching" Soundtrack;
"Can I Get A…;" and "Gangsta Shit" from DJ Clue's
Professional." Importantly, with the release of his debut
Vetti, Vecci" (Latin for "He came, he saw,
he conquered"), Ja Rule established his place as a force to
be reckoned with in today's competitive environment.
from the age of 16, Ja (taken from his initials Jeff Atkins) made his
first vocal appearance on Mic Geronimo's 1995's "Time To
Build," the B-side to Mic Geronimo's "Masta I.C." The
track's producer and fellow Hollis, Queens, neighbor, Irv Gotti heard of
Ja Rule from around the way and immediately enlisted his
services. Building from the strength of his debut appearance, Ja and two
friends, collectively known as "The Cash Money Click" signed
an album deal with Blunt/TVT Records. Their first and only single, '95's
"Get The Fortune," b/w "For My Click" saw rotation
on New York's Hot 97.
After a great first effort, longtime friend Irv Gotti,
Ja secured a meeting with Def Jam president, Lyor Cohen. In a strange
turn of events, Lyor, impressed by Irv's street sense and business
savvy, hired him as an A&R representative, whose first order of
business was to sign Ja Rule to Def Jam.
