His children, aspiring screenwriting Brittney, 23, and aspiring rapper Jeff Jr., 19, aren’t thrilled with the idea.
Jeff Jr. aka rapper SINNER recently performed his own music on stage with his father in Miami, see video above. Irv Gotti said it was “dope!!” and told the teen rapper: “Loved that you had the heart to perform your new record.” Yung Mcloud, an up-and-coming Murder Inc. artist, also commented: “that’s hard.”
Ja Rule’s wife of 18 years Aisha, Jeff’s mom, wrote: “This makes my heart so full.” She was also pretty happy at Jeff’s high school graduation. Aisha says he’s headed to college!
