Born on February 29, 1976, Ja Rule never gets the chance to explore his musical talent because he was raised in a Jehovah's Witnesses, a strict belief that forbids leisure activities. But after his mom eventually left the religion, it was the moment for the artist, who is famous for his thug-rap style, to finally spread his wings. "I went through a lot of phases and studied many religions-I came to a conclusion: I am not into religion, I am spiritual and have whatever relationship with God, you do not need the middlemen." Ja made his first step by joining a group called Cash Money Click and in 1998, he recorded his first smash hit "Can I Get A..." The single motivated him to work on his debut album "Venni, Vetti, Vicci" (1999) which sadly failed to bring success to its offered singles, "Holla Holla" and "Daddy's Little Baby."

The failure later forced him to make another move as he co-found his own record label called Murder Inc, along with friend Irv Gotti. The singer, in fact, seemed to have a good instinct for business just like his former mentor Jay-Z as he also the co-owner of a liquor company "The Mojito" and a clothing line called "Ervingeoffrey." All the business that he got into made a great fortune for Ja Rule. Nevertheless, he was also very concerned with the tough street life and tried to pay more attention to it by fighting the negative social influences of the street through his L.I.F.E. Foundation.
