Ja Rule is back in full effect. Earlier this week, Ja Rule released a new track titled “Fresh Out Da Pen,” and he’s right, the Murder, Inc. rapper is literally fresh out of prison.

Ja Rule and his right hand man Irv Gotti stopped by Hot 97’s Angie Martinez Show to talk about returning to music, life in prison, the reign of Murder, Inc. and how 50 Cent and the Feds destroyed his career.

It is #FlashbackFriday, so GlobalGrind decided to remind the masses of things we should #neverforget about Ja Rule. Do you remember where you were the first time you heard “Between Me & You?” Or what about Ja Rule yelling “holla holla” and “it’s murdaaa” at any given moment?

Well, we’re here to remind you.  We’re glad Ja Rule is back, so here’s 16 things you should never forget about Ja Rule.
