In case you were wondering, Ja Rule is still the butt of jokes on the Internet. The Always On Time rapper performed at the Milwaukee Bucks vs Minnesota Timberwolves halftime show on Saturday night but the audience
Ja Rule, 42, struggled to rile up the crowd as he delivered a string of his 90s and noughties hits, clearly still unable to recover from the whole Fyre Festival fiasco.
Dressed in a Bucks jersey, Ja Rule put his hand in the air and asked the audience: ‘Are we ready?’ but received radio silence.
Of course, it’s possible they just didn’t hear him – even with a microphone – so Ja Rule cleared his throat and asked again. ‘Are we ready?’ this time prolonging the ready for what felt like an eternity.
After gathering even more tumbleweed, the hip hop star admitted defeat and said: ‘I guess not,’ before launching into Livin’ It Up.
In fact, the performance was so badly-received that Giannis Antetokounmpo started warming up during Ja’s set.
Reacting to the sheer mockery, Ja Rule tweeted after the show: ‘Y’all really be on my dick… let’s be CLEAR my sound was fucked up at first and didn’t come on when it was supposed to but I rocked that bitch… thanks for the love Milwaukee!!! Great win my streak continues… lol.’
As for his thoughts on Giannis shooting hoops while he was still on-stage, Ja said: ‘Y’all act like this is not normal at halftime shows… y’all mad corny for this post!!!’
