With a 24-hour news cycle, there is a lot of time to fill for cable news networks. There are only so many old reruns of sparse original programming and rehashes of the same topic by the same hosts that a channel can run. This however can lead to some pretty interesting guest spots and Fox Business decided yesterday that they were going to host Ja Rule on the program. The reason was a good one: He is the creative head of Magnises, a new company that brings together individuals who have credit cards and allows them to connect with special perks and rewards, all for a yearly fee. However after discussing the product for a short period of time, the host decided to ask the "Mesmerize" rapper about the situation in Baltimore and what he thought about the 2016 presidential election.
Ja acknowledged the unrest in Baltimore was a difficult situation that needed a true leader, which couldn't be an entertainer or celebrity.
Ja gave possibly the most important endorsement we have yet to hear—throwing his weight behind Hilary Clinton, though he doesn't think Jeb Bush is so bad.
We know that Fox can't wait to see Obama out of office, so many guests can expect to hear this question on the network.
The Magnises CEO also joined Ja Rule on the program and explained what the product does and tried to sell it to the host, but she seemed much more intent on having Ja dish on social issues.
Maybe someone at Fox Business had been watching some old Dave Chappelle standup and realized that they need Ja Rule to make sense of all of this. Fox asked the question we all ask when life is hard: Where Is Ja?
