After a rough few weeks for Ja Rule, good news is in store.
Murder Inc. Records, the label under which Ja released six albums between 1999 and 2012 (two of which shot to No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart), is returning.
Irv Gotti, the label's founder and former head, made the announcement via Instagram yesterday (May 10) promising new artists, writing:
"I'm about to RE LAUNCH MURDER INC RECORDS!! I got some new artist. New music. Same fucking MOVEMENT! The Worlds Most Talented Record Label. Everyone had a lot of fun."
Gotti gave reasons for his time away from music, too, and admitted to happily watching others succeed, saying:
"While I had to re group from the Feds coming after me. Had to plot and plan and fall back while I watched everyone else eat. I watched gracefully. I applauded and congratulated everyone who deserved it. Never one bone of hate in my body. I love to see my niggas win and eat. BUT ITS MY TURN NOW!! My Money is right. And I'm back!!"
He then teased that more details are on their way:
"Major Announcements Coming Soon. Who Murder Inc will be partnered with. And what Artist I am fucking with!!"
