After seeing the devastation all over social media this morning you may be asking yourself, “What is Fyre Festival and how did it all go so wrong?” You also might be wondering what Ja Rule’s involvement in all of this is. These are great questions. Let me try to explain.

Months earlier the organizers announced Fyre Fest. It was envisioned and explained to the folks who plopped down anywhere between $1,500 and $250,000 to attend as a luxury music festival set in the Bahamas. Headliners supposed to include a stable of G.O.O.D Music acts, Major Lazer, Blink 182, Disclosure, Rae Sremmurd, and Migos. Once the wristband holders began flying in yesterday however — those that could secure flights anyway — they discovered a trash filled, cheese sandwich packed disaster, that looked more like a refugee camp than a music festival.
