LOL: Watch Ja Rule Make Fun of His Own Career

These are his words, not ours.

Published November 16, 2016

Ja Rule recently revealed that his next album, Coup de Grâce (which, FYI means "final blow"), will also be his last.

However, just because he's officially retiring from making music, doesn't mean he can't have a sense of humor about it.

In a new commercial with Footlocker, the iconic rapper plays the role of an Uber driver, which, pointing out the obvious, is a hilarious jab at his own now-dwindling career.

During the car ride, Ja Rule interrupts a conversation regarding Footlocker's "Week of Greatness," saying, "One minute you're on top of the world, the next, it's all different."

As he begins to wax nostalgic on the glory days of his career, his passengers immediately become uncomfortable, eager to get out of the car. While Ja Rule cheerfully asks his passengers to rate him "5 stars," we can't help but applaud him for being such a good sport and for playing this too-real role. 

Watch Ja Rule poke fun at his own career in the commercial below.
