Ja Rule 'Not Ashamed' of The Failure of The Fyre Festival

September 24, 2018

After all the talk had gone down on what happened with the failed Fyre Festival, co-founder Ja Rule says he is not at all ashamed of what had gone down.

Early 2017, The Fyre Festival was to take place for two weekends on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma. Organizers Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule promised a high-end music festival bringing in well known celebrities like the Kardashians, the Hadids, Emily Ratajkowski plus more, relying heavily on social media for promotion.

Day of the first weekend, the festival experienced numerous problems from accommodations, artist relations, security and food. Festival-goers were given prepackaged sandwiches, not the gourmet meals promised and instead of luxury villas, they were given tents to sleep in. Not exactly what they paid thousands for. As a result, the event was indefinitely postponed and numerous lawsuits followed.

In a recent interview with 'Drink Champs,' the Murder Inc. entertainer says he's "not ashamed" of the Fyre Festival and that the concept was a "brilliant" one.

"People didn't really know I had anything to do with the festival until it went wrong." he said. "And then it was like, 'Ja Rule’s festival!'"

He also said he "would have been more involved and made the mistake of trusting others with certain aspects of the business," The Source reports.
