Since being legally cleared in a $100 million USD lawsuit for the notorious Fyre Festival, Ja Rule has returned with a new track titled “FYRE,” addressing his thoughts about the whole situation.

“The fest—the festival is on fire/We don’t need no water, make that motherfucker hotter,” Rule pens, “Hotter than the sun, but it wasn’t that/Show of hands if you got your money back?/Just playing, I got sued for that/100 mil to be exact.” Ever since the disastrous event took place, the rapper has seen a significant amount of backlash for his affiliation with the festival, and this track appears to be confronting the negative accusations against him — the track’s title is an acronym for “For Your Real Entertainment.” Backed behind a retro sample of Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick‘s “The Show,” Rule brings it back old school as he shares some details on how planning for event went sour. Quotes like “in the people’s court, baby they’ll hang ya, like their ancestors” or “Full sabotage, it ain’t fraud” are some other notable lyrics in the song.
