Rapper Ja Rule coming to new South Side club Foxtail
Rapper Ja Rule is coming to the Foxtail in Pittsburgh’s South Side.
Doors will open at 8 p.m. Sept. 7 for the 21-and-older show in the club at 1601 E. Carson St., the location of the former Diesel Club Lounge.
Born Jeffrey Bruce Atkins, Ja Rule is also a singer, songwriter, record producer, record executive. and actor.
Known for collaborations with artists like Ashanti, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Milian, Ja Rule has earned four Grammy nominations, along with six Top 10 albums.
He’s also one of a long list of rappers recently called out on Eminem’s new album “Kamikaze.”
The pair have a long-running beef, going back to Ja Rule’s 2002 track, “Loose Change,” that shaded both Eminem’s daughter, Hailie Jade Scott, and her mother.
Under the same ownership as Diesel, the re-imagined Foxtail offers craft brews and specialty cocktails, a laid-back lobby bar and the main room with a dance floor.
General admission tickets and VIP tables are available for the Ja Rule show.
