Blind Item #6

This former back in the day A list singer/rapper/duet partner who spent some time in jail for some serious offenses has teamed up with some of his former fellow inmates on a ponzi scheme.

I'd say Ja Rule, but he doesn't sing

What'S the tea on Teyana Taylor and her cheating athlete getting their 3some chick preggo?

EV said...

Literally just finished watching the Netflix Fyre doc, good show. One of the most laughable things was Ja Rule calling himself a mogul

Surprised ponzi schemes still work. "Give me your money and I'll give an unrealistic return based on murky details." Nothing shady about that. People have to figure it's at least some sort of illegal enterprise, someone moving kilos or something.

Ja Rule should be in prison right along side his Fyre Festival buddy, Billy McFarland. Did anyone else like the Hulu doc better than the Netflix one?

teyana deleted her damn instagram so now i dont know where to look for my body goals lol

Sook said...

Best line in the FYRE doc -

"It's not fraud. I would call it false advertisement."
- Ja Rule attempting damage control on a conference call

Dena said...

Can't wait to watch the Fyre doc - so the Hulu one is better?

Trapped said...

JaRule ---when I saw that, I saw trouble and a hit ass mess

Brayson87 said...

Yes, I was trying to decide whether to watch the Netflix or the Hulu one, definitely not going to watch two documentaries about the same douchebags.

Robyn said...

just watched the Netflix doc last night and I was glued to the tv.

Tink said...

Netflix one is good. The dude is a tool and I am puzzled how he bamboozled all those good looking guys.

I watched the Hulu one. They have the guy Douche Mgee who managed the whole fiasco on theirs because they paid him for the interview.

That said, they ask him some point blank questions and the look on his face is quite telling. I liked the Hulu one, haven't seen the Netflix one.

Just finished the Netflix doc, plan to watch the Hulu one tonight. Will be curious to see how different filmmakers handle the same subject matter. I thought the Netflix doc was solid. You literally could feel how much cocaine those (mostly) boys were doing. It was unsettling.

kfitz said...

watching the netflix one tonight.

Brayson87 said...

Great, for homework I want everyone who watches both to tell us tomorrow the best one. :)

Christina said...

HI Brayson, I'll report in after I'm done with the Hulu one about if there's huge overlap or if they tell different stories. I suspect this is a case where watching both will be fun/worthwhile! I felt like I could have watched another couple of hours of the Netflix one.

A confidence trickster makes their job of getting people to trust them be far easier if they hand out coke.

Saying a rapper spent time in jail for serious offenses is like saying a pro baseball player spent some time in the batting cages.

Just another day on this stage we call ... life said...

Almost like Madoff: He admitted he only stalked the wealthy. Wealthy are greedy. They thought they'd invest, make unusually high returns to make even more money. I don't feel sorry for most of them. Greedy. Shit, I'm only a HS graduate, but I would know you can't get the returns he was promising.

Mesagain said...

Honestly I thought that both paint the big picture on the entire fiasco. Yes, there are some pieces that overlap, but there are definitely things that are on one that's not on the other.

J.L Jones said...

Yeah it’s Ja

Brent Crystals said...

I thought he was singing in his duet with Ashanti

Krissie said...

Ja Rule isn't a singer and certainly not before he is a rapper. Someone else

UniversalEnergy said...

I think JaRule. Enty doesn't realize that he's not a singer. He singtalks on some songs, but he would be listed as a rapper first- not singer/rapper.

I watched the Hulu doc last night. Both are solid docs, and I'm glad I saw both. The Hulu one actually has an interview with Billy McFarland cut throughout that is telling. He comes across as a complete tool. The Hulu one focuses the story on this being about millennials, and how BF was able to prey on them using their worst qualities. They even had a shrink on who they interviewed about how con men work. But this didn't go deep enough for me -- the whole doc could have been about BF as a con man. The Netflix doc unfolds as the planning for the festival unfolds, more linearly. It's more impactful, IMHO. If you're only going to watch one of the docs, I'd stick with the Netflix one. But if you want a fuller story, I'd watch both. I do not feel like I wasted my time watching both. Also, I looked up where Billy McFarland is incarcerated and he's actually in prison right now with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. OMG, can you imagine their cafeteria conversations?!

Big Kim said...

Exactly my reaction too 😂
