Ja Rule Could’ve Had Ludacris’ RoleIn “Fast And Furious”
You really have to be ready for your blessing/opportunity Ludacris received his big movie break by being ready, he struck gold to!The franchise has been successful for over a decade. Ja rule was in the very first movie he received 15,000 for his role. He passed on the offer to be apart of the sequel. Singleton explains why in a recent interview, he states Ja Rule’s pride is what got in the way of the role.

“Ja got too big for himself. He turned it down. He turned down a half a million dollars. He got 15 grand to be in the first movie. He was really big at that time. I guess Murder Inc. was throwing out hits and were making money hand over foot. He was acting like he was too big to be in the sequel. He wouldn’t return calls. I went to the studio to go see him — that’s just my mantra, I deal with a lot of music people. He was kinda playing me to the side and I was like, ‘What? What is this shit?’ This was all initiated by me. I then made a call. I called Ludacris. I said, ‘Hey, Luda, I haven’t met you before, but I like what you’re doing right now.’ Luda was all humble, excited to meet me. I said, ‘I’m doing this movie and I’m wondering if you want to be a part of it.’ He goes, ‘What? Yeah! Anything you do I want to be a part of.’ That’s how Ludacris got in ‘2 Fast 2 Furious,’ and the rest is history.”

“The Grass is always Greener” rapper talks about always wanting more than what you have on his new album Ludaversal. It appears his grass has been green for a while now lol. What are your thoughts? Do you think Ja is kicking himself now? If your going to see the movie this weekend let me know in the comments.
