If 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 Jay-Z's Roc-a-fella 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; Jay-Z's "Can I Get A…;" and "Gangsta Shit" from DJ Clue's "The Professional." Importantly, with the release of his debut album "Venni, 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.
Rhyming 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.
