Are we getting Fyre Festival 2.0? Rapper Ja Rule says don’t rule out the possibility of a new festival. The rapper recently revealed that he plans to create a new festival around his new app, ICONN.
Calling Fyre “the most iconic festival that never was” Rule told TMZ, “I have plans to create the ICONNic music festival.”
The rapper has been busy working on the new app, which allows people to book celebrities, with some critics pointing out that ICONN is pretty similar to the Fyre app.
Ja Rule has been promoting the app on social media, tweeting back in January, “I’m building an amazing team of creatives and business minds… #InnovateCreateEntertain #Iconn.”
The app’s site lists Ashanti, Fat Joe, and Swizz Beatz as some of the featured talent, boasting, “Our vision is to revolutionize the way entertainers are presented, interacted with and booked. To make the world of live entertainment transparent and secure by leveraging technology.”
Hopefully, Ja Rule has learned his lesson after the Fyre fiasco and maybe this time things won’t turn out so messy.
