First of all: yes, Ja Rule still exists.
Second of all: yes, he’s still livin’ it up, at least as far as we can tell from this footage of his recent gig in Atlantic City, where he performed by a swanky pool surrounded by a handful of bare-booty shakin’ babes.
But things took an unfortunate dive four songs into the set when one overly turnt punter decided to hurl a beer can at the rapper’s head.
Naturally, his response was both fast & furious.
Footage of the incident shows everyone’s favourite Cookie Monster-voiced wanksta cutting the music and offering a $1,000 bounty to dob-in the can-chucker.
Naturally, someone did, triggering the frequent Ashanti collaborator to take swift vengeance by leaning down to bitch-slap the hell out of the offender’s face before storming off the stage.
According to TMZ, after receiving a harsh lesson from Ja’s palm, the tinny-hurler was then turfed out of the venue by security.
Ja Rule returned to the stage soon after, and everything was Wonderful again.
