Ja Rule Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Ja Rule f/ Ashanti "Mesmerize" (2002)

Album: The Last Temptation
Producer: Chink Santana & Irv Gotti

Ja Rule: “I made that up in a hotel. I was listening to one of the Isley Brothers’ records and I came up with the hook and Irv was like, ‘That’s crazy.’ And I was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna record that.’

"I’m always creating on the fly. I don’t write anything down on paper, I just create it, memorize it, then go in and record it. I called up Ashanti and was like, ‘I got one.’ Me and her will do something again soon. We speak a lot and talk about doing new music, so we’ll put something down for sure.”
