Ja Rule has returned to the headlines in recent weeks thanks to documentaries by Netflix and Hulu that detail the disaster that was Fyre Festival. Ja Rule was involved in the failed music festival along with Billy McFarland, who was sentenced to six years in jail after everything came crashing down.
Fyre Festival was built around a talent booking app which sounded like a good idea on the surface, but everything went terribly wrong.
Well, it looks like Ja Rule may not have learned his lesson.
As it turns out, Ja Rule is launching his own app and it is eerily similar to the Fyre app that became the inspiration for the disastrous festival. Ja Rule’s new app is named Ice Connect (ICONN).
“Ice Connect, known as Iconn is a celebrity entertainment booking & concierge service created by industry veterans,” a description on the official website reads. “We are working to solve the decades-old problems that entertainers have had with negotiating terms, executing agreements and getting paid.”
What could possibly go wrong?
Of course, the internet quickly caught wind of Ja Rule’s new venture and the jokes immediately started to flow in.
“Where do I sign up for Iconn Fest? I’m very interested in the cabana options,” one Twitter user wrote. Another added: “If you click on this link it takes you to ‘Iconn’ which is exactly what ‘Fyre’ was supposed to be before Ja Rule and a Con Artist held a fake music festival. What a tweet.”
All you have to do is look at the responses to Ja Rule’s initial tweet to see the reaction it garnered.
Get your popcorn ready, because this is going to be good.
