Ja Rule to Perform at Licensing Expo’s Highly Anticipated Industry Party

Las Vegas, NV (May 18, 2023) The world’s largest and most influential event dedicated to licensing and brand extension today reveals that multiple Grammy and American Music Award nominee, rapper and songwriter, Ja Rule, is set to take the stage at Licensing Expo’s Opening Night Party, taking place June 13-15 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. 

Ja Rule is recognized as a leading rapper, songwriter, singer, record producer and actor, debuting his career in 1999 and dominating Billboard charts with popular back-to-back hit songs and albums. Renowned for top hits like “Put It On Me,” “Between Me And You” and “Wonderful,” international superstar Ja Rule has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide over 25 years, revolutionizing the world of hip-hop.  

As both a businessman and cultural influencer, Ja Rule understands the importance of expanding his brand beyond music. In recent years, he’s collaborated with fashion designers, as well as footwear designer, Steve Madden, on a line of dress shoes, sneakers and motorcycle-style kicks. More recently, Ja Rule has begun to broaden the reach of his brand into apparel, fashion accessories and wine. Licensing deals are in the works for card games, board games and other product categories, as well. 

“With Ja Rule’s expertise on IP and brand extension, as well as 2023 marking the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop, we could not think of a more perfect industry mover and sought-after icon to mark our first-ever event dedicated to fashion in licensing,” says Ella Haynes, Event Director, Licensing Expo. “As a celebrated trendsetter and respected establisher of hip-hop and rap, Ja Rule brings bold energy and innovation to music, fashion, entertainment and brand identity. We cannot wait to have him perform to welcome our attendees and kick-off this year’s highly anticipated expo.”  

“Ja Rule has a distinctive style that relates across generations,” stated Charles Singleton, CEO of TreImage, licensing agent for Ja Rule. “He’s a savvy artist, extremely smart entrepreneur, an all-around great person to work with, and is truly a legend in the industry. We’re excited about finding additional collaboration and licensing opportunities for this one-of-a-kind Icon.”
