Ja Rule Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Ja Rule f/ Charli Baltimore "Down Ass Bitch" (2002)

Album: Pain Is Love
Producer: 7 Aurelius & Irv Gotti

Ja Rule: “That was also about my wife. [Laughs.] We’ve been down for a long time. I used to say to her a lot while I was in prison, ‘You really my down ass bitch.’ She’s been through it all with me. I say that as the utmost term of endearment.

"She’s been down with me through thick and thin: When I didn’t have shit to me being fucking super rich and living a great lifestyle, through my beef shit, me going through my prison term. She’s been with me through everything. That’s my better half.

 

Charlie Baltimore caught a raw deal [with] the whole B.I.G. situation with Faith. People saw her as the home-wrecker or whatever. It was always like a dark cloud over her because of that.

 

I love Chuck [Charli Baltimore]. Chuck is a spitter. She’s an incredible lyricist. She does her thing on that mic. Me and her had fun putting that together. She caught a raw deal [with] the whole B.I.G. situation with Faith, them going through that and people seeing Chuck as the home-wrecker or whatever. The story never really got to be told from B.I.G.’s side because he passed. It was always like a dark cloud over Chuck because of that.

"Female fans just didn’t gravitate towards her. She’s incredible. I love her. She absolutely didn’t get her just due as an MC, as an artist. I haven’t spoke to her in a while but we’re still cool.”
