Worst Song: "The I.N.C. Is Back" f/ Black Child & Shadow


In 2001, Ja Rule was essentially hip-hop's version of the King of Pop. From "I'm Real" to "Always On Time" to "Livin' It Up," just about every song he released that year soared to the top of the charts. That is, until 50 Cent started gunning for his spot and called him out for singing on records, Ja tried to ignore 50 at first. Eventually, Ja played right into 50's hands and started creating songs that were the exact opposite of what he'd come to expect from him. The result: This glorified mixtape that ultimately led to Ja Rule's self-destruction. You fell for the trap, son!
