Two Titans of Hip Hop, JA Rule and Ashanti Create a Memorable Night of Music at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino
Fans of Ja Rule and Ashanti have something to get excited about this April. With dozens of unforgettable hits between the two of them (including several exceptional collaborations), they’re now teaming up for one memorable night of music at the Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, April 6, 2019.
Queens native Ja Rule burst onto the music scene in 1999 with his debut album Venni Vetti Vecci, featuring the single “Holla Holla.” From 1999 to 2005, Ja Rule scored several Billboard Top 20 hits including “Between Me And You” with Christina Milian, “I’m Real (Murder Remix)” with Jennifer Lopez and “Wonderful” with R. Kelly and Ashanti. Over his career, Ja Rule has sold an amazing 30 million records worldwide and was the best-selling rapper in 2001.
Grammy-winning singer/songwriter, actor and author Ashanti first debuted with her smash hit, self-titled debut album Ashanti. With her song “Foolish” from that album, she also secured the Number One spot on six Billboard charts simultaneously. In addition, Ashanti won the Grammy that year for Best Contemporary R&B Album. Her follow-up album, Chapter II, debuted in the Number One slot and spawned two Top 10 singles. As an entrepreneur, she’s created the record label Written Entertainment and as an actress she’s dazzled in such films as Coach Carter, John Tucker Must Die and Resident Evil: Extinction. She is also an Executive Producer with her films Mothers and Daughters (2016), and Stuck (2017).
Ja Rule and Ashanti’s reunion is fitting since both ruled the summers while at Murder Inc. Records during the 2000’s. The dynamic duo had several chart-topping hits together including “Mesmerize,” “Down 4 You,” “Happy,” “Wonderful” and the Grammy-nominated summer banger, “Always On Time.”
