Ja Rule recently performed during halftime at the Milwaukee Bucks vs Minnesota Timberwolves game, and was met with some interesting responses from the crowd and players. Performing as part of the game's "Nineties Night", the rapper introduced his set by clarifying that he was actually a 2000s artist. The second problem came when Ja Rule tried to get the crowd "ready" for his music. Pretty much everything went downhill from there.

One user responded to Ja Rule's introduction by saying in all capital letters, "Bruh Ja Rule never getting booked again", with a string of crying emojis. "But my album came out in '99, so I guess that counts".

The performance eventually started after brief technical delay left Ja Rule and his backup dancers standing awkwardly at half court. When it was time to get the audience hype for his display he received no response when he asked if the arena full of people were ready. "I guess we're not". He's the best player on a Milwaukee Bucks team that's leading the league in wins, has a legitimate shot at being named the NBA's Most Valuable Player and is expected to wow fans at every turn.

7 reasons to binge Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy
Right now, Netflix has said nothing about there being a " The Umbrella Academy " Season 2, but it is simply inevitable. Additionally, the entire wedding was thrown in the middle of New York City under a black umbrella that spanned 60 feet.

From there, the Timberwolves tweeted a photo of Ja Rule from his halftime performance and said "We too were hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hoodwinked, lead astray!". "You just jinx yourself talking to the GOD this way... your CURSED NOW! Great win my streak continues... lol", he wrote in a followup tweet. "Apologize and I'll lift the CURSE! kiss of death..."

Videos posted online show Ja Rule had sound problems at the beginning of his performance.
