That went well.
Just a month after the Fyre Festival documentaries torched what was left of his credibility, Ja Rule is once again claiming to have been defrauded.
Friday night, the rapper took aim at the Milwaukee Bucks for booking him (a “2000s artist”) for a (bombed) halftime performance on “90s Night.” And after a brief war of thumbs, has now “cursed” their opponents, The Minnesota Timberwolves, for poking fun at his now infamous “hoodwinked” defense (above) from the Fyre Festival backlash.
In response (below,) the rapper condemned the Timberwolves to 30 years of obscurity, echoing Lil B’s series of Twitter “curses” cast upon Kevin Durant and James Harden. Later, Ja walked back his comments and (maybe?) acknowledged that Milwaukee (host of the performance,) had a hand in his sabotaged medley. He added “let’s be CLEAR my sound was fucked up at first and didn’t come on when it was supposed to but I rocked that bitch… thanks for the love Milwaukee!!! Great win my streak continues… lol.”
You just jinx yourself talking to the GOD this way… your CURSED NOW!!! You won’t win a championship for the next 30 years… AND KAT IS LEAVING!!! Apologize and I’ll lift the CURSE!!! 😘 kiss of death… https://t.co/RzUn4vKx2Y

The silver lining: if Lil B catches wind of any unaccredited borrowing of sorcery, Ja’s the next hex on the list. Time will always tell, but one thing is certain:
People that steal from Lil B will pay now or later all you have to do is pay respect to the original and the leader blind ones will – Lil B

There’s a good 3.5 minutes left of halftime, Ja Rule is mid-song and Giannis is already out shooting. pic.twitter.com/sPoyVnpI7x
