Ja Rule Is Livin It Up In The Australian Outback

"Flyin' abroad in my private G-2. I ain't tryin' to G you, ma I'm tryin' to see you."

The rapper chose Alice Springs - yes Alice Springs - in the central desert to begin a month-long tour around the country.

The red centre is a long way from his days cavorting aboard yachts in Miami with Jennifer Lopez while guzzling Cognac and Cristal Champagne. But Ja Rule has told BuzzFeed News that he's loving it.

Local Aboriginal DJ Lorena Walker will open Ja Rule's Alice Springs show.

Walker told BuzzFed News that Ja Rule is keen on learning for about the local Arrernte people.

"We gave him an Aboriginal flag and some traditional clap sticks and he loved them. He's very humble."

This will be the biggest gig Walker has played and she says the town has gone into overdrive.

"Growing up in the late nineties and early 2000s, everyone grew up listening to him around here. Everyone in the community is just in a buzz right now just to have Ja Rule in the community right now."

"I am pumped for tonight, it is such a big gig for me. Working with the team that got him out here, they have done a great job. I'm nervous but it is going to go off."

In 2000 you couldn't miss Ja Rule's red raw voice blaring out of countless discmans.

He showed us how to eat cereal like a boss. Preferably with two hot women watching on. Case-in-point, the Always On Time film clip.

"Baby, I'm not alway there when you call, but I'm always on time, gave you my, now baby be mine."

What about the ghetto fabulous homage to Grease in the film clip for Mesmerise.

Playing a gangster Danny to Ashanti's Sandy, the romantic lyrics had us all falling in love.
