View Full Version : Reeewind! Lets Take It Back Mothafuckaz!!!

Hey wat up MIO!!

Just been thinkin that we need some re-newed optimism around the place, something to get the negetive energy the FUCK outta here!

So iv constructed a timeline for MIO to refresh your memories and for the new members here at MIO be filled in on some recent Ja Rule history on a music level. Iv not included everything so if yall wish to add any songs that you feel stand out, then feel free......

Its a bit long so be patient through it.

And do play the songs!

Lets take it back to 2006

-Just after Irv beat the feds, Murder INC dropped a hot joint called '21 Gunz' featuring Irv Gotti, Ja Rule, Merc & Caddilac Tah......When I first heard of it, my first reaction was that it was just some old throw-away joint they put out. But then I played the mothafucka and Irv is yellin 'Not Guilty Yall Got to feel me!!' and im like WOW MOTHAFUCKAZ!! were back!!! Ja's goin sick on the beat dissin the hell out the unit!

-It was around the same time when we got word of the M:I:3 Mixtape, and Ja's Myspace was constantly being updated with new joints. Then we heard 'So Hot' a fuckin beast of a beat and dope ass lyrics. The music was coming thick and fast and we were gettin notcied all over the internet, Ja's comin back HARD! Joints such as 'Its all hood now'..... 'All I Need'

-Around the same time we hear of a new and upcoming R&B cat called Boxie which Ja Rule spoke highly of. And BAM he drops a joint called Keyshas Baby featuring Ja Rule. A very deep and graphical song and Ja's Verse was once again hot as fuck.

- Then we hear a song that is straight fucking FIRE!! A new R&B artist by the name of Ashley Joi appears on the scene! Ja Rule Ft. Ashley Joi - Free. A real deep song with a double meaning depending on how u wana listen to it, This song is getting lots of love all over the internet, it was then when everybody was thinking......wow! Ja is coming the fuck back!

-Ja kills the so called 'Beef' With The Game and appears on the 'One Blood Remix' with a fucking monster of a verse!! which even the haterz were really feeling! something undeniable. People are really starting to feel Ja's sound once again!

-Fast Forward a bit into spring of 2007 and Ja's launched an online radio station by the name of 187fm.com......which then was a breath of fresh air to the Murder Inc internet community. Ja had a show on there every friday night where he would come on and drop new joints occasionally and give us news on his album and upcoming projects and would also take feedback which was LIVE and he would respond to us, so we knew he was listening, this was a very good thing and I believe that Ja could really do with this happening again at this moment in time so we could get out views across.

-Ja's droppin joints left right and centre, Remixes, originals.......everything! A bit like Lloyd is doing now, everythings looking on the up, and Ja's upcoming album is gathering loads of attention!
These are some of the joints that he dropped around that period of time.

Gangsta's Paradise - Something from the R.U.L.E. period...and again a DOPE song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Le-mxPkfjtA

Style On Em' - A real mixtape banger, lyrics on point and and a new sort of flow that Ja came with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsarNFa0sIA

Seven Aurelius Ft. Ja Rule - R U Comin With Me, A real BIG club banger which i have no doubts will blow the fuck up if it was actually released at any point in the future http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iQNy48zexM

Range Ft. Ja Rule - Wait Until Tonight, Another Hot Rap/R&B Joint which proved once again that Ja Rule is the KING of collaborations, 2 Very good Verses on a dope beat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4g7GcqXlds4

New York Is Back, A Hot collabo teaming up again with Joe and Jada, Ja's verse was once again crazy and was a real testimony to East Coast Rap. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rovou0RRKtk

Boy Looka Here Remix, Another hot verse from Ja goint at the haterz! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9EBERW3tT8

Give It To Me Remix, yet again goin at the haterz, and having no problem adjusting his style slightly, another hot verse. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbLsQwM0c-Q

Get It Shawty Remix, Ja blessing Lloyds Hit was really good, another great verse from Ja, on point with the rest of the song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AgUjJ-l4Jg

All these joints were gathering great momentum for the initial release of Ja Rules upcoming Album 'The Mirror' which was initially dropping November 13th.

The music was coming thick and fast and from every direction.

As we got close to November 13th 2007 we were given the news that the album was to be pushed back to 2008 but we all got a sneak peak of what to expect from 'The Mirror'



What does the future hold?

From this brief review we can see that Ja has it in him to make it big once again, The joints that he dropped prior to the November 13th reslease date were straight fire, more or less everyone of them and some even good enough to become hit singles.........Think: Wait Until Tonight, R U Comin With Me, New York Is Back, Free, as the stand out ones.

Fear not....The Mirror Is coming and we will get a finished Masterpiece, a classic. Ja has worked long and hard on this project. He knows how well (not so well) Body and Uh Ohhh did so therefore he knows what is expected and he WILL deliver. As much as they do seem to be flops......Body and Uh Ohhh could turn to be a blessing in disguise for Ja as now he knows what is expected to re-enter the mainstream Rap game. Its has to be a very calculated re-entry, hes been in the business long enough and he has seen the rise and fall of many including him....so expect him to deliver

The takeover is coming.......

Leave your thoughts


Just wana thank the YouTubers [Marcus] and others here on MIO for some of the uploads I used. And I wana thank all those who took time out to read this long ass post lol

the future is what we not know.

Let's wish for the best.

My feeling is that Ja is working on a HUGE single, that he will drop after it's done to get the promo once again started for The Mirror.

My feeling is that the HUGE single will feature a big artist.

03-17-2008, 06:15 PM
i mena i guess i should be mad as a fan for the album not being out, but im cool man, i aint bitching or no shit, i just want him to come when hes ready and when he feels its time to come. i want classics so id rather wait than get some lame records. im happy when he comes and ill always be a ja fan so its all good.
Knowing hes doing shit since hes doing songs with good charlotte and shit makes me positive. i know he knows what hes doing.

03-17-2008, 06:16 PM

03-17-2008, 08:33 PM

U basically summed up the past to yrs good shit man and yeah ja had the net going crazy wid all the hot shit he was droppin he'll do the same just when he is about to release the mirrror u watch but good post and great thread

03-17-2008, 11:15 PM
Nice post man.

03-18-2008, 04:33 AM
its the future we like to see.......:D

03-18-2008, 08:57 AM
gotta give you props for the effort and time u put into this thread man, nicely done. we need more posters like you.

this was a crazy time for MI fans, there was new music and new artists coming outta thin air, not to mention the one blood remix which was an event by itself. it makes u wonder what would have happened if ja used that momentum and released sunset after one blood, would the song and mirror have blown up? people were buzzing like crazy over his verse on that as well as the imagine remix. free and its all hood now made quite an impression also.

a few other tracks u forgot to mention were the me n u remix with ja and h-o and countdown with gift

03-18-2008, 09:12 AM
fuckk yeahh!!! But mirror gotta drop this year!

It's gonna be huge album with nothing but classic material..

it's murrrrddddaaaaa

03-18-2008, 09:28 AM
yes murda4life all the time delivering the good news and the good shits on the forum, really good analyse and keep on doing it.

the mirror future classic album to become???? no doubt bout it
the good charlotte featuring will be insane, right now I can't stop listening their song DANCEFLOOR ANTHEM this is an insane funky song really too good.

hopefully we will get to have more informations bout what's goin on and what are gonna be the changes on the official mirror. I hope it will be release before the summer but i don't know so much what to think lol but I prefer ja to come back in two years but the hardest as he can that he comes now and this is not working so keep on waiting and it all will be good, the king will make the world vibe once again

03-18-2008, 10:07 AM
nice post
if ja is taking all this time out to re-create the mirror i gotta feeling its going to be hot i mean we havent heard anything about him so he must be busy i guess. when the new mirror gets released and brings as much hype and vibe ja did 2 years ago then murder inc is back on top of the game

03-18-2008, 10:24 AM
one song that got me real excited back in the day was 1900 murder, every1 was like wow who are these new cats

"I remember when the first Rap Grammy went to Jazzy Fresh Prince, Fat Boys broke up, Rap hasn't been the same since".....

Imagine Ja winning or at least being nominated for a Grammy award for The Mirror?

03-18-2008, 01:08 PM
Good stuff man that must of taken some time TYVM for it.

03-18-2008, 09:51 PM
do u still think the album will be called the mirror? it seems to me that he is moving in another direction.

03-19-2008, 09:06 AM
^^^ thats a very good point serpah, i been thinking about it latley too. but i do think it will be called the mirror still because i dont think ja will take off hearsay, judas, the mirror, sing a prayer for me, them songs are like "The Mirror" type of songs........literally

03-19-2008, 09:09 AM
Good stuff man that must of taken some time TYVM for it.


Lets just say:

MIO Is Made By The Fans FOR The Fans.

If we wont do it who will?

03-19-2008, 10:25 AM
i dont think he'll change the name if he was to we would have heard something by now

03-19-2008, 09:15 PM
lol..........its never too late with irv and ja..........im sure u agree haha
