DENIED: Ja Rule Will Not Be ‘Livin’ It Up’ On Tour In The UK

Sorry to this man!

Ja Rule discovered that having a criminal record can get him banned in certain countries as he embarked on his latest world tour.

According to The New York Daily News, Jeffrey Atkins, better known as Ja Rule, was denied entry to the United Kingdom just days before he was about to tour in Wales. The Queens-bred lyricist and entrepreneur informed his followers when he posted a message on his X account, formerly known as Twitter.

He goes on to explain why he wasn’t allowed into the country.

The “Holla Holla” rapper, who is celebrating his birthday on Thursday, Feb. 29, was sentenced to two years in jail in 2010 for gun possession. He was also hit with a two-year prison term in 2011 for tax evasion.

In December 2023, Ja Rule announced “The Sunrise Tour” on his Instagram account, which would have started on Friday, Mar. 1.

Ja Rule’s sworn enemy, 50 Cent, chimed in to reignite the more-than-20-year beef between the two. According to HipHopDx, in a since-deleted post, the infamous troller laughed at the recent misfortune of the “Can I Get A” rapper. Alongside a screenshot of the news, 50 wrote, “Hahahahahaha, I did not have nothing to do with this b**ch not getting in. LOL.”

In another Instagram post, he seemingly tries to take credit for his denied entry by saying, “LMAO. I got juice all over the place, sucker!”

Ja Rule did respond to the “How To Rob” rapper on X with the caption, “N**ga, you p**sy shut up…”

In January, Ja Rule announced that he just signed a new record deal that could be worth $100 million. He didn’t disclose any details on this deal, but he told his followers he would build a school in Ghana.
