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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
