Do you remember back in the early 2000s when Ja Rule beefed with the entire Shady/Aftermath/GUnit camp? They went back and forth on countless tracks, mixtapes and even albums. Throughout the beef, they even brought in the late, great 2Pac as they both said he’d roll with them. Many people didn’t listen to the music, they just chose sides and most went against the Murder Inc crew. Honestly, Ja had the illest line in the beef when he went at Eminem’s daughter, but many discredited it. After a lackluster, The Last Temptation album the prior year, Ja Rule returned with a new album. Blood in my Eye was supposed to be a mixtape, but he released it as a full-fledged album. Many of the so-called “music critics” hated on this album badly. For me, this was definitely an upgrade from the previous album.
Ja Rule had his Murder Inc. crew on the album, except Ashanti as this was a hardcore album. Surprisingly, Hussein Fatal (R.I.P) from the Outlawz was featured on the album. The first single from the album was Clap Back, which basically was Ja Rule clapping back at 50 Cent. Clap Back also had some heat for Eminem and DMX also. Clap Back set the tone for the album as this is one of the better Ja Rule albums. The Life, Clap Back, The Crown, Things Gon’ Change, the title track and the last two freestyles are my top tracks. My favorite track on the album is Race Against Time II, which is the sequel that was on his debut album, Venni Vetti Vecci. With it being 2018, Ja Rule is still beefing with 50 Cent, but this time it’s through social media. Check out the track listing and stream below.
