Much has been made about the Fyre Festival disaster and TMZ recently caught up with Ja-Rule who spoke about his future ambitions.

Though the Queens rapper was one of the faces behind the Bahamian destination event catastrophe that was the subject of a pair of recent documentaries, he has been absolved of any legal wrongdoing in the wake of the confabs meltdown. Now cleared of legal woes, Ja explained the focus of his next venture, Iconn, which is a booking agency app similar to what Fyre was, promising users a “secure, one-to-one connection” between verified talent buyers and artists. At present, it lists Funkmaster Flex, Metta World Peace, The Game, Migos and DMX as “featured talent.”

Before dashing off, Ja Rule teased the idea of returning with his own Iconnic Music gathering to avenge Fyre’s defeat. “[Fyre Festival] is the most iconic festival that never was, so I have plans to create the Iconnic music fest,” he said. “But you ain’t hear it from me.” Check out the full interview below.

In related news, Fyre founder Billy McFarland, was recently ordered to pay back nearly $3 million to a sponsor of the event, in addition to the more than $24 million he owes following a settlement with the SEC.
