Do you like Ja Rule?

Personally, I think he sucks! He sings/raps like he just swallowed a mouthful of gravel. I don't understand why he's so popular....

Honestly, I think he is one of the biggest rap-whores out on the market today. Lets see what I think, a person who doesn't listen to much rap. When I say 'listen to much rap' I mean that I listen to hip-hop, and I listen to rap. I just don't listen to it all the time.

Anyway, back on subject - What don't I like about Ja Rule

1) He's a babyface. He's too clean to be as hard as he wants to be. Look at DMX. That guy looks like he crawled straight out of the gutter.

2) His biggest tracks, that I am aware of, were always with someone else. Generally, some girl is singing, and he's just backing them up.

3) He has one of the worst production teams I've ever heard. He has the most unimaginative music that he raps to.

4) He's just a troll who got lucky. He was attached to JayZ and DMX, and when he finally got the break he needed, he grabbed it and ran. I commend him on this one, but I'm still trying to find out where he keeps his "street cred"

i agree with everything meanSpleen said. Ja Rule has never gotten a hit when not accompanied by someone more talented than him.

I hate him for making the word "holla" popular..everytime I hear that word I want to punch whoever said it in the mouth. Ja Rule is annoying. He's completely commercial...

Is that the guy with the stupid bandaid on his face? I think I've heard him,but with rap music,if you've heard one,you've heard them all. I prefer music that has at least some talent base.

But what do I know. I speak english and don't make up words from existing words. The crotch in my pants doesn't go down to my knees and I don't have a car that has more bounce than a fucking trampoline. Go figure.

the guy with the bandaid on his face is Nelly. The only reason I know who any of them are is because their videos sometimes have hot chicks in them... sometimes one of them will have a good beat, but the stupid throwing their hands at the camera, and making mean faces crap turns my stomach and hot chicks in the video or not, I end up changing it.

So you are saying Jennifer Lopez is more talented then Ja Rule? I would say they both are no talent hacks when it comes to music. (I am not taking acting into consideration).

Though I hate to admit it J-Lo is more talented than Ja Rule but still not talented enough to warrant good music. I don't get why people think she's so hot, it's all plastic and a fat ass, not to mention she looks like a fish with her hair tied back.

Exactly what Deflock said. Jlo has more talent in her big ass than JaRule has in his whole body. At least she can act/dance/sing on a reasonable level. Sure, she isnt' the best, or even that good, but she can do it.

My friend liked Ja Rule until I pointed out that he rhymes "babee" with "babee".

My friend has now converted.

battle with em? Man, people who limit themselves to rap and buying into these "battles" are really missing out on some good music. The battles are helping sell records, so they all win in the end. The only loser is the person who goes out and spends their hard-earned cash for the CD. A 12 year old girl told me what rap stands for, which I actually found a little funny.. retards attempting poetry.

For God's sake, I just wish that Em and Fifty and D12 and Busta and DMX and Fabolous and Lil Mo and more or less the rest of the game would just hurry up and kill his lame arse.

He's so shit. I'll have to coin a new derogotary phrase to fit him.

Any suggestions?

They 'attempt' poetry pretty well...

Better than in any other genre! But then 12 y/o girls are hardly human enough (let alone intelligent) to keep up with their intricate use of the (extended) english language...

A great many people who don't listen to rap and can't see beneath the surface often refer to it as obnoxious and insulting 'noise'...

Did you know this creature? She loves Britney, right?

Oh, this is gonna hurt...

Seen one and seen em all eh? The same can be said of any music by those who don't look (or listen) deeper. As far as I'm concerned rockers are all mentally disturbed trashomaniacs who use guitars for other than playing music, popstars are all grinning bouncing bastards who underneath it all are miserable cunts, and RnB'ers are all sick shits who sing about love all their miserable music lives.

But it's not all bad. I've heard great rock, pop and rnb tunes that are actually good. Hip hop is real because it goes deeper than all that hedonist shite and can make you think hard. Yeah, so guns, cars biyatches and all that do get fucking irritating, but like I said; dig deeper. Listen to Gangsta's Paradise by Tupac. Listen to Changes by Tupac. Go use KaZaa. You'll find many coscientious rappas, like Pharoah Monch, Jay Z, Tupac Shakur, Talib Kwale, and many more.

The strange thing is you never seem to be able to find coscientious popstars or rockers, who are willing to throw aside their 'front' and ask the Lord God for forgiveness for their sins, or say I love you mom/pops on the mic, in the way rappers do.

So ner.

Dig deeper man...

Not that I like the guys music all that much, but you do have to stop and realize that umm... hes pretty successful to put it lightly. There has to be a pretty large number of people who like him considering how many records he sells and how much money he makes. But I really lost all the small amount of respect I had for him, when I saw him in The Fast and the Furious. His one or two lines almost made me throw up he was so bad.

I honestly don't think that there has been a rapper with TRUE talent, and by that I mean all around musical, lyrical, and extraneous talent, since Chuck D, except maybe Mos Def.

And as far as those non-talent rappers go, Ja Rule is at the bottom of the barrel. Actually, he IS the bottom of the barrel. You know what, he doesn't even deserve the barrel. He gets to sit out in the cold.

I find it rather contradicting that someone can say forgive me of my sins Lord God then in the next phrase he's saying I fucked this ho and shot her man. or something to that effect. Some rockers are fucked up.. sex, drugs and rock and roll right? I bet most people think Manson is fucked up but if you listen to alot of his songs he actually has some intelligent things to say. Most people won't give him the credit for that because he's so freaky looking.

Ja Rule doesn't seem to say anything. Ever. I'd rather listen to 3.5 minutes of road sounds than listen to another of his vapid duets. I dig rap for a lot of reasons - flow, lyrical content, creative production, general vibe of the group, but Ja Rule and most other radio rappers have nothing that interest me.

That's wot it is tho.

Words on the mic.

I mean, do you really think the Beatles had a trip in yellow sumbarine with cartoon fish??? IN REAL LIFE?????!!!!!!

Words. Don't take them too literally man. Words are powerful, and some people succumb to them and accept them as dire truth. It's a male instinct to 'front', exaggerate, show off. If a rappa says I fucked thi ho and threw caps at her man, it may well have happened, but maybe euphemistically. Maybe he just soaked Joe wit tha Super Soaker 200999786 and rudely grabbed his girl's ass while he was drying out. Y'know? Maybe he played a guy's chick then threatened the guy with a replica.

Or, more likely, he's just chattin shite.

You see, the thing with music is you can 'live' out a 'fantasy' or alternate life in your songs and your videos. I mean hell, when I rap I sometimes refer to myself as the Demon Of Mischief, or a pirate (my theme) sailing the seven seas plundering unwary ships with my co captain Davie Jones. I've always dreamed of being a pirate since my pickney days dem and now I'm expressing my dreams and making them come true to an extent in my music. Music lets you vent. It lets you 'do' things that law doesn't allow, but in a HARMLESS WAY.

Music isn't physical. Harmful occasionally, but not physical. If a guy says 'I fucked up a cop' then it dont mean he literally dragged a jay out his car and blew his head off.

I mean come on, think deeper man.

The whole world, not just rappers, is responsible for 'making up words from existing words. Hell, we even make up nonsense words from dust.

It's called slang. Or colliquial speech.

Rappers amy seem to do it alot, but that's because their words are broadcasted around the world for all to hear.

If we normal people were also broadcasted worldwide, you would realise that we ALL do it. We just don't get heard by the masses.

Slang is not quarantined and restricted to the rappers.

IT'S EPIDEMIC.

And I'm sure you use slang as well, and have probably (like all of us) made up a word at some point in ur life, even if it's just for personal use.
