His conviction came unexpectedly, so Ja Rule thought he won’t be able to make it in time to record the last cuts of his new album. Despite this, the production of “Pain Is Love 2” was fueled by Ja’s fear of prison and now the album will be available on the market on February 28, says Daily News.
Police officers found a weapon in Ja Rule’s Maybach in 2007, so the singer was convicted of attempted gun possession on June 2011. This event messed up his plans because the rapper’s much-anticipated album, “Pain Is Love 2”, was not finished and spending time in jail was the last thing on his mind. Luckily, he managed to better organize his work and the album was ready before you could say “Hustlers’ Ambition”. Oh wait, that was 50Cent. Before you could say “Venni Vetti Vecci”.
The rapper told reporters in a Daily News interview that the project came out better than he expected. His first music video “Real Life Fantasy”, a duet with Anita Louise produced by Hype Williams got 3 million hits on the best hip hop websites. The single was enough to trigger fans’ curiosity and to make them want to hear other hits on the album, such as, “Pray for the Day”, “Drown” and “Superstar”.
Channel 7 contributed to the production of “Pain Is Love 2”. According to their declarations, the studio was seized by a “supernatural” desire to get the album finished. The creative energy was so intense that everyone felt they were dealing with a mission. The studio assistant got very emotional during the last session of recordings because he felt he was inspired by Ja’s will to finish the project in due time. The fact that the rapper was going to jail the next day made the whole situation even more emotional.
The “Thug Lovin” interpreter concluded his interview by saying that he got the moral support he needed to defeat his problems from his uncle. The latter sent Ja Rule a poem about an oak tree which was not bent by the wind because it had strong roots. My guess is the tree had a .40 caliber pistol tucked under its trunk.
