In a strange and backwards turn of events, self proclaimed ‘hip hop mogul’ Ja Rule has announced plans for a Fyre Festival 2.0, which he claims will be “iconic”.
Earlier this year, Netflix’s documentary Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened delved into Ja Rule’s first exploit into festival management which, to summarise, was a fail of epic proportions. Following the dismantling of the festival, the rapper took to twitter saying he “too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!!”.
Now, the Mesmerize singer has decided to give Fyre another go. TMZ caught Ja rule at LAX this week, where they asked him about his experience organising the festival.
“I’m not ashamed of Fyre at all. Because man, the idea, it was brilliant. It was fucking beyond brilliant … It was amazing, but it wasn’t what I dreamed it of being, and what I envisioned of it being, and what I wanted it to be. It wasn’t done properly.”
Then, in a surprisingly entrepreneurial twist, he added “In the midst of chaos, there’s opportunity. [Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was. I have plans to create the iconic festival, but you didn’t hear that from me.”
So while music festivals are on the demise in NSW, there’s always Fyre 2.0 to get your festival fix.
