The jailed rapper’s Pain is Love 2 will be released this fall.
Ja Rule wasn’t able to release his new album, Pain is Love 2 before reporting to prison for a two-year gun possession charge in June, but Hip Hop N More says the project finally has a new release date of October 11. Producer 7 Aurelius says the rapper’s seventh studio album was delayed to be sure it would be top quality. “Me and Rule have to capture all the magic around us until he goes in, otherwise we are doing an injustice to his fans,” he said. “If we had stopped in April just to be able to turn it in to Fontana for a June 7 date, PIL2 would not be what it is now.”
