CAYMAN ISLANDS (CelebrityAccess) Although Ja Rule says he is considering another Cayman Islands festival that will not be named Fyre Festival 2, the organizer of that market’s Kaaboo Caymon, Jason Felts, is asking the rapper to reconsider for obvious reasons.
“It’s disappointing,” Felts told TooFab on Friday. “I hear Ja Rule is at the airport right now; I wonder is he on his way down here to get some tips? Ja Rule should stick to rapping. … I think he’s a great rapper, but he needs to stay in his lane.”
Ja Rule told TMZ that version 2.0 of Fyre Festival shouldn’t be discounted. The comment came approximately around the same time Kaaboo was launching its fifth edition on the islands.
“They should not attempt to do another Fyre Festival, they’ve lost all credibility,” Fe;lts said. “The people who were most affected by Billy McFarland and Ja Rule were the local people, the Bahamians. All of the locals and vendors who worked tirelessly and were never paid. Not to mention the victims of Ja Rule and Billy’s Ponzi scheme in trying to lure guests to that island and pull the wool over their eyes.”
Ja Rule was co-organizer, alongside Billy McFarland, of the infamous Fyre Festival, which promised bikini models and fun on the sand but delivered hilariously sad sandwiches and no way off the island. McFarland is currently behind bars for fraud but Ja Rule appears to be clear of any fraud-related criminal charges.
Kaaboo is completely sold out, according to Felts, after organizing it for two years. He flew in 200 employees and hired 700 locals, making Kaaboo the fifth-largest employer on the Cayman Islands. The inaugural event kicked off on Friday, hosting 10,000 for acts like The Chainsmokers, Duran Duran and Counting Crows.
