Ja Rule Says He’s Planning Another “Iconic Music Festival”

Amidst all of the controversy surrounding the Fyre Festival disaster, Ja Rule’s still not giving up hope!

TMZ caught up with the rapper at LAX where he talked about many new business ventures he’s excited about. The failed Fyre Festival made headlines last year and Netflix gave us an inside look into just how horrific the conditions were for those expecting the time of their lives. Meanwhile, Ja Rule’s business partner, Billy McFarland, was sentenced to six years in jail for his part in the scam but the rapper reportedly wants to give it another shot.

“[Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was,” he told the outlet. “I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn’t hear it from me.”

The 42-year-old even talked about the launch of his new app, Iconn (Ice Connect), which he swears is nothing like McFarland’s Fyre app.

“[Fyre Festival] is heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing, and it just didn’t turn out that way, but you know in the midst of chaos there’s opportunity, so I’m working on a lot of new things,” he shared. “I’ve got my new platform, Icon, rebranded and rebuilt and it’s an amazing platform. It’s for artists.”

“It is kind of similar to what the [Fyre] app was, but you have to understand the app was separate from the festival,” he clarified. “Different teams working on the app than the festival and the whole nine.”
