With shows in Cardiff, London, Birmingham, Nottingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Dublin, Belfast, and Glasgow in March, the 47-year-old will be starting things started in the UK and Ireland.

More dates will be revealed soon. Mya, Keri Hilson, and Lloyd will accompany him on the road. When questioned before about the likelihood of a new album in June 2023, Ja Rule merely advised fans to “get ready.”
