The “Holla Holla” rapper was at Newark Airport on Tuesday night when he was asked about the reaction he’s received since the Hulu and Netflix docs dropped. While people have come at him online, he says, “People don’t act the same in the real world as they do online.”
He added, “I don’t expect people to see the docs and get a real depiction of what happened from the docs.”
Ja was evasive when asked about trying to do another festival and said he was unaware of Andy King’s … um, adventures … when trying to procure water for the guests.
But when it comes to the finer points of the films, don’t ask Ja Rule — he admits to seeing “bits and pieces” and “a lot of clips,” he hasn’t actually sat down and watched the movies.
As for what he learned from the ordeal, he explained, “For any young visionary, entrepreneur, out there, I would tell them to just be hands-on with your stuff. If it’s your baby, and you wanna create something amazing for the world to see, make sure you see it through. Make sure you’re the one that’s overseeing everything. Make sure you’re the CEO of the company, even if you’re not an experienced CEO … it’s ok to make some mistakes along the way. I think that’s what I learned the most.”
And you might be wondering … how are things between Ja and jailed Fyre Festival founder Billy McFarland?
Ja explains, “Haven’t spoken to Billy and don’t plan on speaking to him.”
