Beyoncé and Jay Z, Drake and Lil' Wayne, Chris Brown and Trey Songz. These pairs all have one thing in common: they've all embarked on joint tours together, and Ja Rule and Ashanti are apparently set to join the ranks. Speaking with Billboard, the "Mesmerize" MC shared the news.
"Me and Ashanti are about to go on a big world tour and we're putting together a music and film project with our whole Natural Born Killers tour and EP," he said. "It's kind of like a Streets Is Watching type of film."
For the youngins out there, the MC was referencing the Jay Z-led 1998 film which featured Jigga and his then business partner, Damon Dash. This isn't a quick thought that the former Murder Inc. label mates just decided on overnight. Ja told Billboard that "it's been a long time in the making."
Speaking on the film project, he says that the plot is a cross between the Barbra Streisand film A Star Is Born and the previousy mentioned Natural Born Killers. "It's fictional," he said. "It has a musical feel to it, and it also has a street edge. It's going to be fun and sexy."
So, what's your verdict? Are you excited to see Ja Rule and Ashanti back in action together?
