LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Rapper Ja Rule has hinted that he’s interested in getting back into the festival game with an “iconic” event of his own.
Ja Rule is perhaps best known to people these days as one of the celebrity faces that helped to promote the now notorious Fyre Festival, and in a recent, seemingly impromptu interview at LAX on Thursday, the rapper told TMZ that he was disappointed at how the event turned out.
When asked if he’d watched either of the two documentaries chronicling the failed festival which have popped up on Netflix and Hulu recently, he said he had not, but conceded that they were popular.
“They’re very popular, they’re very popular. Maybe one day [I’ll watch them]. I lived it, man. I ain’t gotta watch it,” he told TMZ.
He also took the opportunity to tout his new venture Iconn, which is a booking app that operates in a similar fashion to Fyre (the app, not the festival).
“In the midst of chaos, there’s opportunity. So I’m working on a lot of new things. I got my new platform Iconn. It is kinda similar to what the app was, but you gotta understand the app was separate from the festival,” Ja Rule told TMZ.
He also hinted that he was considering launching his own music festival, but despite media reports to the contrary, he did not directly link it to the Fyre Festival.
“[The Fyre Festival] is the most iconic festival that never was, so I have plans to create the ‘Iconnic’ music fest,” the Rapper told TMZ. “But you ain’t hear it from me.”
