Born in Hollis, Queens, Ja Rule was signed to Def Jam Records in 1998, and made his radio debut as a featured artist on Jay-Z's single "Can I Get A..." The heavily promoted single started to gather a buzz around the raspy-voiced rapper. The following year, Ja Rule released his debut album, Venni Vetti Vecci, the first album released under the newly founded label Murder Inc. Records, a label started by Irv Gotti under Def Jam Records.
The success of his debut album was only the start of Ja Rule's ascension in the music industry. From his debut in 1999 to 2004, Ja Rule released a new album every year—Rule 3:36 (2000), Pain Is Love (2001), The Last Temptation (2002), Blood in My Eye (2003) and R.U.L.E. (2004). Each album found success, and his singles featuring pop/R&B artists such as Ashanti and Jennifer Lopez were particularly popular. Ja Rule's second single from Pain is Love, "Always on Time," featured R&B singer Ashanti, and was the rapper's first No. 1 single on the Billboard Top 100. Ja Rule has sold over 30 million records worldwide and was the best-selling rapper in 2001.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are a hip-hop group from Cleveland, Ohio formed in 1991. The group originally consisted of two siblings, their half-brother, their cousin, and a lifelong friend who all took on the last name of ‘Bone’ to recognize the ‘bone-deep bond between them’ – Layzie Bone, Flesh-N-Bone, Bizzy Bone, Krayzie Bone, and Wish Bone. Rapper Eazy-E of the group N.W.A signed Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to Ruthless Records in 1994. The group’s debut EP, Creepin On Ah Come Up, included two top 40 hits, “Thuggish Ruggish Bone” and “Foe Tha Love of $.” In 1995, their full-length album, E. 1999 Eternal, followed featuring another top 40 hit, “1st of Tha Month.” An updated version of “Crossroad” from the album renamed “Tha Crossroads,” became a smash hit holding the #1 spot in the U.S. for eight weeks. The group scored five more top 40 hits over the next ten years. They have continued to record and release their unique brand of street rap melded with lush R&B harmonies. All ages.
