Yesterday, rapper Ja Rule said that he’s going to create another festival similar to the failed Fyre Festival, which was the center of two separate documentaries by Netflix and Hulu.
On Thursday (Feb. 14), TMZ caught up with the rapper and asked him if he’s seen any of the documentaries about Fyre. Ja Rule said that he hasn’t seen any of them, but that perhaps one day he’ll check them out.
“In the midst of chaos, there’s opportunity, and so, I’m working on a lot of new things,” the “Always On Time” rapper stated. “I got my new platform… It’s an amazing platform, and it’s for artists. It’s kind of similar to what the app was, but you gotta understand that the app was different from the festival”
Ja Rule continued to talk about the failed festival.
“It is the most iconic festival that never was. I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn’t hear it from me,” Ja Rule said before running away from the camera.
Ja Rule’s ex-business partner, Billy McFarland, went to prison for fraudulently garnering millions of dollars from investors of the Fyre Festival. He’s also at the center of a new $3million lawsuit by one of his former investors, EHL Funding.
McFarland is currently serving a six-year sentence.
