In this week's take on weird Wisconsin social media, I take on the phenomenon that is Ja Rule. After the controversy highlighted in two documentaries about his involvement with Fyre Festival, Ja still can't seem to catch a break.
Last Saturday, the Bucks hosted the Minnesota Timberwolves for a '90s-themed night. As part of the festivities, Ja Rule performed during halftime of the 140-128 Bucks win. What follows is quite a cringe-worthy moment for the rapper-turned-entrepreneur.

It seems that Milwaukee really wasn't ready – and neither was his DJ. It didn't take time for Twitter to fire up the burners for a great roasting session.
You ready? ... no.
Ja rule: I SAID...ARE YOU READY !!!! #JaRule

As the blowback began to pile up, Ja took time to clarify that the show was having sound issues and that regardless his "win streak continues."
My bag just keeps getting bigger... lmao!!! 💰 — Ja Rule (@Ruleyork) February 24, 2019
Meanwhile, the Timberwolves tried to get in on the dunk-a-thon, and Ja responded like any rational human adult: He cursed them.
You just jinx yourself talking to the GOD this way... your CURSED NOW!!! You won’t win a championship for the next 30 years... AND KAT IS LEAVING!!! Apologize and I’ll lift the CURSE!!! 😘 kiss of death... https://t.co/RzUn4vKx2Y — Ja Rule (@Ruleyork) February 24, 2019
Whether you blame the awkward performance on the sound guy, or Ja's persona following the Fyre Festival flop, I think we all know who REALLY was ready at the halftime show.
