Two years after the Fyre Festival’s demise, Ja Rule is still defending the failure.
The rapper, who was one of the festival’s co-founders next to Billy McFarland, chatted with “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Wednesday, still calling the idea “amazing.”
“Here’s the real s**t,” he said. “Yes, my brother supported me. The Fyre Festival was an amazing idea. Let’s not act like every f***ing body wasn’t coming to the Fyre Festival.”
And despite the epic failure, Rule would still give the festival another go.
“It was f***ing done wrong,” he explained. “It was organized bad. The idea of it was dope, the marketing was dope, everything was done very right on that end. The execution was extremely bad, man.”
He added, “I’m getting calls from the biggest motherf***ing n****s who do festivals in the world… sure, I would like to do another festival and do it right, because that’s what I intended to do in the first motherf***ing place.”
In 2018, McFarland was sentenced to six years in federal prison and Rule has yet to contact him.
“I’m mad at Billy,” he said. “He lied to me, man. He lied to me in a lot of ways.”
