Ja Rule drops track about Fyre Festival, 'FYRE': Listen

The track comes after Ja Rule was cleared of any wrongdoing surrounding the 2017 event

Ja Rule has shared a song about the fabled 2017 Fyre Festival disaster.

The event, which left paying festivalgoers stranded on a private island in the Bahamas, resulted in a $100 million class-action lawsuit, with co-founder Billy McFarland currently serving a six-year sentence after pleading guilty to fraud charges relating to the festival in 2018.

Now, in another seemingly shameless move from the founders, following McFarland's admission earlier this year that another Fyre Festival would take place, co-founder Ja Rule has released a new track about the disaster.

The track, entitled 'FYRE', an anagram for For Your Real Entertainment, sees Ja Rule reference the events from a tongue-in-cheek perspective, including a mention of the A-list celebrities which featured in the festival's trailer, the fact he was up against a (now dropped) $100 million dollar lawsuit, and repeating the famous line that he too was "bamboozled, hoodwinked, led astray.”

Ja Rule was initially cleared in July this year for actively promoting the event, but an appeal was launched by McFarland's legal team, who argued that the rapper was aware the festival was destined to fail. He was cleared of all wrongdoing in November 2019.
