Before Fyre, there was fire.


As the world clowns Ja Rule over his record breaking spree of L's, it's easy to remember that dude was once dropping some fire. As one of the most promising up-and-comers of the late nineties, Ja was pretty much everywhere, preparing for his brief stint at the top. His debut album Venni Vetti Vecci was acclaimed by critics, and boasted a collaboration with two of the era's dopest emcees - Dark Man X & Jigga. 

Over a grimy, minimalist beat, each rapper goes in with some murderous content. Still, despite the star-studded roster, this track kind of flew under the radar, leaving many sleeping on a crazy verse from a youthful Jay Z. Overall, "It's Murda" is a classic collision of New York's finest.

Quotable Lyrics

I leave rivals on their backs looking up at the sky, blue
Not only do I leave you I hide you
I before you, X and Ja-Rule
Death before dishonor now and prior to
Boss man, fire you, conspire you
Me die before you? You liar, you
Niggas is dead off the hits I approve
Fuck it, I got the feds wearin riot suits

- Jay Z
