Ja Rule Recalls Time He & DMX Hitchhiked In Miami
Ja Rule recently sat down with First We Feast for an episode of their "Hot Ones" segment, during which he recalled an adventure with DMX.
In the clip, Rule recalls a time when he was in Miami with the fellow New York rapper, both of which were at the height of their careers.
"Me and X are hot as firecrackers out there," he says. "X is in front of the hotel and he's got this f*cking Benz. He's like, 'Rule, where you going? C'mon. We're gonna take a ride. Let's go do this. Let's do that.' I'm like, 'F*ck it, where did you get the car from?' He's like, 'Ah, it's my car.'"
From there, Rule and X are driving around the city, when their joy ride is interrupted by the police.
"Typical X, he's f*cking speeding, acting crazy on the road," Rule explains. "Cops pull us over. Cop says, 'License and registration.' X goes, 'Uh, it's not actually my car.' So now I'm looking at him like, 'Hold the f*ck up. What's about to happen here?' Come to find out he stole the car from Michael Kyser. It was Kyser's car that worked for Def Jam. He explains this to the cop. Cop says, 'Alright, it's your label guy's car. Whatever, you took it. You guys, you don't have a license, you guys won't be going anywhere else in this car. So call somebody to come help you, whatever.' X is like, 'F*ck it, don't worry about it.' He jumps out the car."
After losing their ride, Rule says DMX then proceeded to stick his thumb out and start hitchhiking.
"I'm like, 'Yo, this can't be life,'" he says. "So some chick sees Ja Rule, DMX on the side of the f*cking road like this with their thumbs out waving cars down and sh*t. She picks us up. She's hysterical. She takes us to her f*cking grandmother's house in the hood. The whole hood comes out. Grandma's cooking us food. We're taking pictures with all the kids."
