Ja Rule, with guests Kent Archie and WOULF, performs live at House of Blues (308 Euclid Ave. Cleveland) this Thursday Jan 10. Doors open at 7 p.m. and show begins at 8 p.m.

“KNOW THY SELF…” is one of the oldest, philosophical statements that can be traced back to Ancient Egyptian times that still resonates people who are lovers of knowledge and are in pursuit of spiritual oneness. It is a creed that knows no boundaries and people from all walks of life gravitate to its simplistic truth. When it comes to music, nowhere does this belief have more meaning than in hip-hop, where the drive to stay true one’s artistry is the ultimate goal. And, there is only one rap artist within the 21st century that this declaration of faith could not have spoken to more than The Inc./Empire/Motown Universal recording artist Jeffrey Atkins a.k.a. Ja Rule. Backed by a new label and a fresh perspective on his career and personal life, Ja Rule is ready to reclaim his longtime reign in hip-hop with his latest album, The Mirror.

Tickets are $27 in advance and $32 on the day of the show. Reserved balcony seating tickets are $40. Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.ticketmaster.com/ja-rule-tickets/artist/718029.
