Just Be You,Ask Ja Rule About That

Remember Ja Rule? The rapper from the early 2000's that probably made your favorite song at the time. Being featured on songs with the up and coming Ashanti and Jenny from the block. Often seen screaming 'It's Murder'. In reference to his record label, Murder inc. He was an superstar. Was on top of his game.

In walks 50 Cent. Gangsta rapper from the city of New York.  With a style that is in your face and unapologetic. Before signing with Interscope, Jackson engaged in a well-publicized dispute with rapper Ja Rule and his label Murder Inc.. Jackson claims that a friend robbed Ja Rule of his jewelry and that Ja Rule accused him of setting it up. 

However, Ja Rule claimed the conflict stemmed from a video shoot in Queens because Jackson did not like seeing him "getting so much love" from the neighborhood. In March 2000, while at The Hit Factory studio in New York, Jackson had an altercation with Murder Inc. associates. He was treated for three stitches after receiving a stab wound. Rapper Black Child claimed responsibility for the stabbing, saying he acted in self-defense because he thought someone reached for a gun.

This started the change in Ja Rule. Loads of diss songs followed from both artist and one included Eminem coming to the aid of 50 Cent. 

I will be the first to tell you that the songs that 50 Cent put out was great. They had comedy, they had evil and they had shots. Ja Rule should have let it ride. 

Ja Rule went off and started to try to prove to 50 Cent (Person he doesn't even like) that he was in fact a gangsta. He wanted to get that point across to the public so bad. To the detriment of his career. He went so left.  He left what he was to be another man.He never been the same since. He, as you know felt off. 

Which brings me to you. You reading this. Just be you. You don't have to prove to anybody that you are or are not something. At the end of the day, you have to like you. That's about it. If somebody else didn't like you, that's a they problem. Not a you. 

I see way too many people on social media trying to be something they're not for people they don't even know. It's a cycle that needs to stop.

Just look at Ja.
