Fyre Festival was a disaster. The failed event led to lawsuits and tarnished reputations. Although Ja Rule has been able to distance himself from the mess in some ways, he still takes responsibility for his part in the debacle.

The rapper addressed the situation during his appearance on an episode of Drink Champs. Many lessons were learned from the experience. Ja Rule affirms the importance of being as involved as possible in whatever is attached his name.

"I didn't make a dollar out of any of that. My main lesson that I learned out of that is never give nobody the keys to your motherfu**ing car. You can get in it, but you can't drive."

He acknowledges that many things got out of hand because of his lack of diligence, a failure for which he takes responsibility.

"I'm not a ni**a that likes to put blame or throw people under the bus…I should've been more on top of things. I should've not trusted people in certain things. And maybe, I'm positive things wouldn't have been like that. That part of it I take all responsibility and I wish I wasn't running around on tour and moving around doing things and not in the office and not being on top of the whole situation the way I should've been."
