At Least One Unreleased Jay-Z, DMX & Ja-Rule Song Exists

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Speaking to Rob Markman for MTV News at last week’s Def Jam 30th anniversary show in Brooklyn, Ja Rule spoke on one of the most legendary false starts in modern Rap history: the trio of himself, Jay-Z and DMX under the Murder Inc moniker. In June 1999, the three MCs graced the cover of XXL magazine in what turned out to be a cruel tease for unwitting Hip-Hop fans as the group would eventually fall apart before it ever had a chance to get started. This was going to be Rap’s most visible supergroup to date, with each of the three principals at (or nearing) the peaks of their respective careers. I distinctly remember wondering why in the world X and Jay want to be in a group with Ja Rule of all people, but that’s neither here nor there.

Of course it never happened, and all three of these guys ended up on vastly divergent roads in the decade that followed. Even though we never got a proper Murder Inc album from Jay, X and Rule, we did get a couple of tracks: “Mudergram” and “It’s Murda”, both of which stand as underground classics and fine examples of what could have been. But it appears that may not be the end of the story. At the end of the video clip above, Rob asks Ja if there is any unreleased music from the trio that may be stashed away somewhere. His reply? “I think there might be one or two joints that are still out there that ya’ll haven’t heard”. Hold up, what?! Somebody (I’m looking at you Irv) needs to come up off that shit post haste.
