Ja Rule Banned From Australia
The Inc rapper/singer Ja Rule can’t catch a break. The latest chapter in his turbulent career sees him being refused entry to Australia, due to their extremely harsh immigration policies – especially in regards to hip-hop artists with criminal history.
This isn’t the first time Australia has banned an international hip-hop artist, as they refused entry to Snoop Dogg in 2007 after he was booked to host the MTV Australia Video Music Awards. In response, Snoop and MTV started an online campaign to try to make him an Aussie citizen. (There’s been no word as to whether Snoop is following through with this!)
Also, with The Game scheduled to perform Down Under in the next two weeks, should Jayceon be worried that his visa is going to be caught up in political red tape?
While it does seem excessive to deny the R-U-L-E entry to Australia, the first time he toured wasn’t without drama, as his bodyguards were involved in a physical confrontation with an Adelaide club DJ who played a 50 Cent record while Ja was in the venue.
But having said that, is any country really scared to let Ja Rule and Snoop Dogg visit? Really? (Especially a country that was founded by the British as a place to send all their criminals!)
We’ll give the last word to Dave Chappelle, who simply asks on behalf of all Aussies: “Where is Ja?”
