Nerd with attitude
I don't f*cks with the shady-a*s NY Daily News, but this guy Michael Daly is one funny dude. I was surprised at how much he actually knew about Ja Rule, Supreme, 50 Cent, Irv Gotti, and how they all bumped heads. There's no way he could've done his research the night before and put together such an amusing article. This sh*t right here is a must-read:
"So many people snitched on the seemingly all-powerful McGriff that the feds beat him. He was convicted of conspiracy to murder and sentenced to life in prison. His permanent departure from the scene left Ja Rule facing the dilemma common to rappers who act like street thugs but are in truth just nerds with attitude.
"These candy rappers become easy targets for genuine street guys, who see high comedy when a mama's boy from Queens named Jeff Atkins makes himself into Ja Rule and sings a song such as "Gun Talk."
"...Some years back, 50 Cent made a video wearing a gold chain that Ja Rule is said to have relinquished with extreme reluctance. Ja Rule was then robbed of another chain by some tough kids from the Forties Houses projects in Queens. Ja Rule is said to have turned to McGriff for help.
"Supreme got him his chain back," a knowledgeable law enforcement official noted.'
"Maybe this is the same chain Ja Rule can be seen wearing in the YouTube video [making of "Uh Oh"] along with that "Supreme Team" T-shirt. The problem for him is every street thug in New York knows McGriff is behind bars....Uh-oh."
I almost think this dude had a ghostwriter. There is no way he wrote this article.
In addition to that, the Pigs mocked Ja, telling reporters "He was a good little mama's boy, and now he sings about guns and busting caps. Now [that] Supreme's away, I guess he needs a gun."
And in case you missed it, Ja is facing a mandatory 3 1/2 years for violating that gun possession law I spoke of yesterday. What a way to make a comeback.
After years of popular demand, Talib Kweli and Mos Def are reuniting on stage to finally bring back those Black Star days. It's about time.
It seems as if things are finally looking up for the kid Saigon after he got with Chris Lighty over at Violator. He's everywhere now.
Cop the tickets asap. The address is 1515 Broadway at 44th Street on the West Side.
