Ja Rule Explains Why Joint Album With Jay Z & DMX Never Took Place

(AllHipHop News) Back in the late 1990’s Jay Z, DMX, and Ja Rule had planned to unite as the megagroup Murder Inc. Unforunately, an album from the trio never came out, and MTV caught up with Ja to discuss why the project never saw the light of day.

Backstage at the Def Jam 30th anniversary concert Ja Rule said:

We tried to deliver that album. It was a situation where egos all just played a part in its demise.

We couldn’t get X and Jay in the same room. From long ago, their storied battle on the pool table with the guns out – that carried over into our careers and we were all trying to do our thing separately. It was hard to get all of us into a room to do what we needed to do.

We did a few records together and those records will always be classics to a lot of people in the history of Hip Hop. I wish that album would’ve came to fruition. It would’ve been real dope…

I think there might be one or two joints that’s still out there that you haven’t heard.
