This is not a joke! Fyre Festival co-founder Ja Rule has plans to create another festival. His previous attempt failed and his co-founder Billy McFarland ended up going to jail in 2018 after he pleaded guilty to defrauding the festival investors and ticket vendors. However, even after the chaos, Ja Rule is willing to put his name on another music festival.

When the hosts grilled him on everything that went wrong Ja Rule said, “The festival was an amazing idea. Let's not act like every f***ing body wasn't coming to the Fyre Festival. It was f***ing done wrong. It was organized bad.”

DJ Envy also asked Ja Rule if he had any contact with Billy, 27, who is still serving time in prison. “I don’t intend to have any conversations with Billy. He lied to me, man. He lied to me in a lot of ways,” the rapper claimed.
