Personal Quote:

We, as artists, we have the right to express ourselves. That is our first amendment, freedom of speech. But I also believe that we have an obligation to the youth to be somewhat responsible in what we say on records. But I think that comes with age. I think that comes with artists growing up and becoming assured of who they are as people. See more »

Trivia:

Released Greatest Hits album called "Exodus" on December 6th - the same day Eminem released his Greatest Hits album, "Curtain Call: The Hits". Ja Rule did this to compete with Eminem's record sales, and to fulfill his deal with Def Jam. However, the album was a comparative failure. It sold approximately 500,000 copies. See more »
