One of the genesis of the article freshed off a paragraph of Ja rule witnessing Biggie performing at the legendary Tunnel nightclub in New York a decade ago, and next to him was the chiseled Tupac entertaining a line crowded with adoring females longing for autographs, hugs , and a millisecond's worth of eye contact.
Last year, Ja Rule claimed that Last Temptation would be his last album, but this year, he's fliping his script. On the latest Source magazine, the deep voiced rap diva said "I don't think I wanna retire no more. Quincy Jones said something that made me think. He said- Tupac died at 25. If I had died at 25, I would have been a musician who didn't get a chance to blossom." Then he went ahead to compare his reasons with other political figures, saying "If Malcolm X died at 25, he would have been a street hustler named Detroit Red. If MLK died at 25, he would have just been a preacher who never got to the Martin Lurther King Jr. that we know... That made me think I could die tomorrow, and that right there will stop my legacy and my life; People would never get a chance to know what I could have grown to be."
Can some one tell Ja that Pac did more than most of the rappers at the age of 25, and him (Ja) will be remembered as the rap diva who wanted to be like pac, and mocked himself with singing.
