Ja Rule Supports HBCUs With NFT, Deion Sanders Approves

After Diddy gracefully scrapped up to 1/48th-1/98th ($2M) of his yearly income ($50-$100M) during the 2022 BET Awards, Ja Rule seems to follow the steps. The “Venni Vetti Vecci” author’s recent Instagram post suggests “get on the Blacklist NOW.” Some of Ja Rule’s Jul 14 NFT sales will then “SUPPORT HBCUs Hampton, Morgan, Spelman, Moorehouse and Jackson St.”

Deion Sanders then went on to thank Ja Rule for his generosity. “I wanna thank my brother Ja Rule for hitting me up and including our program in his heart along with several other HBCUs,” Sanders, you’d think, told Ja Rule, not TMZ. “My brother, I’ve always admired and applauded you from afar, but this is a TRUE blessing for our TEAM. God bless u, my brother!!!”

While certainly nobly intended, Ja Rule’s decision to invest in NFTs might be under-calculated. The recent crypto crash also significantly affected the NFT market. The current estimate prices for NFT stay from a bit to substantially lower than previously, while the overall NFT sales also fell from the last year.

“Murder Inc.” Documentary Series: The Story Of Ja Rule

A couple of months ago, Irv Gotti and BET announced the production of the “Murder Inc.” documentary series. At the time, BET executive vice president Tiffany Lea Williams thanked “Irv for trusting BET to tell the story.” She also proclaimed, “looking forward to bringing a music documentary series that reveals how this label changed the music industry forever.” 

In the recent short interview, Gotti also gave more details on the upcoming screening. “My Murder Inc. documentary is coming [Aug 9] at 9 p.m.,” the producer informed. “Tune in. It’s dope.”

“That group [Murder Inc.] was something that I felt special about ’cause all three of them is like my brothers,” Gotti continued. “I knew all three of them like 10 years before we all got on. I knew Jay since ’87; I knew X since ’88; I knew Ja since ’91. Just understand, I knew that those three was gonna conquer the world before they conquered the world.”
