UK Authorities Deny Ja Rule Entry Ahead Of Scheduled Tour

Jeffer Atkins, the 47-year-old American rapper, also known as Ja Rule, has been denied entry to the UK due to his previous criminal charges. He had faced gun and tax evasion charges over a decade ago, leading to his incarceration for two years before he was released in May 2013. Ja Rule took to Twitter to announce the devastating news and confirm the cancellation of his upcoming shows in the UK, including the first show scheduled to take place in Cardiff later this week. The ‘Sunrise’ tour was set to continue through the month, with several shows planned in cities like London, Birmingham, Nottingham, Leeds, Liverpool, and Newcastle. Additionally, shows in Dublin and Belfast were also scheduled. His tour was set to wrap up in Glasgow, where he had plans to perform for his fans.

The American rapper, who had promised his fans a memorable experience, expressed regret for not being able to make it to the UK and pledged to plan something special for his disappointed UK fans. He also confirmed that ticket holders would receive refunds for their purchases.

Ja Rule’s last album, ‘Pain Is Love 2’ was released during his incarceration and faced several delays before its release. The album was a sequel to his 2001 album ‘Pain Is Love’ and sold 3,200 copies in its first week. Earlier this month, the ‘Always On Time’ rapper reflected on his decade-long hiatus from recording music and teased his fans with a promise of new music.
