Video: Ja Rule on Ebro in the Morning

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Ja Rule joins the Hot 97 morning crew on Ebro in the Morning and recounts the infamous fight between him, his crew and 50 Cent in Atlanta back before the rise of G-Unit. As he’s said in the past, he believes 100% that he won that fight and that the only reason people believe 50′s version of the story is because he’s physically bigger and more intimidating than Ja. He also plugs his new book Unruly, talks about his new music and much more. The 50 story begins about 4 and a half minutes in.

RAST Interview & Freestyle on #NW3RADIO

Thursday, June 26th, 2014


Last night my brother RAST joined Peter Oasis and co-host Emily Oberg (Complex TV) on WNYU’s Now Where Were We. They delved into the legacy of the infamous RFC crew, the downtown NYC graffiti scene during the 90s and of course RAST’s Across West 3rd Street project. It was an especially entertaining conversation due to the fact that Mr. Oasis ran those same downtown streets as a youth.

Huge shout to Peter for inviting RAST up to the show, as well as that overly generous shout he gave me . You’re far too kind sir!
