The latest in 'Where's Ja?!' Ja Rule HIMSELF speaks out about Iggy (the Iguana) Australia!

Ja Rule is out of hiding, y'all! Dave Chapelle doesn't have to ask "Where's Ja?!" anymore, when it comes to his opinions on Iggy Australia. The "What's Love" featured rapper recently spoke out about Iggy Azalea's undeserved success and questionable Grammy nominations. He told The BoomBox...

"Music is very different these days," Ja Rule tells The Boombox. "I think she [Iggy Azalea] deserves it because she had the No. 1 record for like 10 weeks… And when you look at the landscape of what’s out there as far as female MC’s, it’s not a lot. It’s basically her and Nicki Minaj and nothing else."

Ja took part in the Millions March, which took place during his show in Queens. He spoke about his former run-ins with the law and the fear for his son's life:

"He [Jeffery, Jr.] told me the other day that he and Irv Gotti’s son were driving and got pulled over by the cops and that scared me a lot," the 'Put It on Me' creator reveals. "Because they are young black men and they don’t come from the same places that me and Irv come from, so they may not know how to deal with that type of situation… And the way the police are so gung ho these days, ready to shoot first and ask questions later, it scares me."

The former rapper says that he tells his son on how to deal with the police.

"I know a few officers that are friends of mine and they tell me certain procedures you should take when you get pulled over… So I teach them to my sons," he shares. "But what’s really f—ed up is that as black men we’re scared. If I am driving in my car and chillin' and I see police in my mirror, I still look around like, 'Oh s—! Am I speeding?' Just because I am black."
