6 R&B Artists Responsible for Ja Rule’s Success as a Rapper

Back in the late '90s to mid-2000s, Ja Rule was one of the biggest artists in rap music. In 1999, he released his debut single, "Holla Holla," and fans were starting to discover his gritty sound as a rap artist. He was also featured on Jay-Z's single, "Can I Get A….", with rapper Amil since he wrote the hook to the song. Even though he was working and touring with elite rappers, Ja's music wasn't receiving adequate airplay on radio stations. Critics often compared the rapper to DMX and the late Tupac Shakur.

However, in 2000, Ja started to make his mark as an artist when he released his second studio album, Rule 3:36. He began working with several R&B artists and from that point on, Ja was known for his smash hits with talented vocalists for the next five years. Each single he was featured on received commercial success.
