Ja Rule - Spun A Web

Producer:

For those who haven’t been following Ja Rule‘s legal struggles since last he stepped into the Booth, the Big Apple street vet’s two-year prison sentence on drug and gun charges (begun on June 8) has ballooned to four years and four months after he was charged with tax evasion in July. It’s a harsh blow, to be sure, but the artist isn’t simply going to sit and feel sorry for himself—or, more specifically, he’s gonna channel that frustration into his in-progress musical comeback. Spun a Web, the latest leak off Ja Rule’s forthcoming street album, finds succinctly-named beatsmith 7 flipping a pensive piano sample from Coldplay’sTrouble as the emcee struggles to come to terms with a life bereft of all the familiar amenities: “No cribs, no cars, no champagne, no bright lights, no b*tches, no b*tch n*ggas…” Though Ja Rule insists that those who haven’t walked in his shoes can’t pass judgment on his actions, the record is fair game—your opinions, Booth readers? If you appreciate this emotionally-charged cut, keep it locked for release details on Pre PIL2, the yet-unscheduled prelude to Rule’s (also unscheduled) seventh LP, Pain Is Love 2.
