Ja-Rule: Back From The Brink

Back from the brink

Overcoming adversity isn’t as straightforward as some people may make out. And the issue seems to be magnified when you’re a global superstar with the status of Ja Rule.

Over the last year 4 years, West Coast rapper Ja Rule has seen his career hit some serious bumps. After several publicized fallouts with fellow musicians like Lil’ Mo, 50 Cent and Foxy Brown, the 38-year-old star then faced one of the biggest hurdles of his life.

In 2011 he was sentenced to 28 months in prison for tax evasion as reported by MTV. He would have to serve the majority of that sentence in the Metropolitan Detention Center, Brooklyn before eventually being released on July 28, 2013.

Upon his release many naysayers were questioning whether it was only a matter of time before Ja Rule was incarcerated again. However, this was never an option for the one time successful rapper as he was plotting his rehabilitation.

As he began to get his life back on track many expected Ja Rule to use his music as a vehicle to get him focused on the things that mattered. However, this wasn’t the case, as a chance meeting with professional poker player Phil Ivey was to change his life forever.

Ivey, who is a future Hall of Famer, has a penchant for cash games, and it was through an impromptu game, that Ja Rule happened to be present at, which brought the two together. Ever since that the two have been seen at professional tournaments together.

For a solid 12-months, Ivey was mentoring Ja Rule, helping him with all aspects of the game as Ivey traveled the world playing the sport he loves. As Ja Rule followed him, Ivey also introduced him to the realms of online gaming ? something that isn’t afforded to most Americans due to the Black Friday coo which took down all of the sites back in 2013. But in other parts of the world, this hasn’t been a problem since the first casino portal went live in 1997 through InterCasino.

This allowed Ivey to help Ja Rule with the fundamentals of the game without having external factors such as intimidation and heckling affecting the way Ja Rule perceived the game. After the aforementioned 12-months of learning, Ivey set Ja Rule loose on professional tables and the rapper has never looked back.

Since then it has even been reported that he’s launched his own official poker site off the back of his love for the game. Unfortunately, for music fans of the rapper it means that any plans of a new album have been shelved for the time being. But with this renewed focus, we’re sure it won’t be long before we see a new album from the Queens rapper.
