“Never Had The Time”

    When Ja Rule isn’t writing somewhat-awkward letters from prison, he’s on the phone with go-to producer 7 Aurelius plotting the release of Pain Is Love 2. The album has obviously been delayed because of dude’s recent incarceration, but the word on the hip-hop Internet streets is that it might drop in January. While that’s interesting and all, I find it slightly more intriguing how Ja and Aurelius are doing their best to keep up with the current music trends. Yeah, it might not make for the best music, but Ja’s latest single, “Never Had the Time,” is the type of track that could easily weasel its way onto the radio. Is that a good thing? Hmm, maybe so, maybe no. Judge for yourself below. [HHNM]
