What likely was the worst day of Ja Rule’s life is going to be able to be viewed by everyone in the new Netflix documentary, Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. The film is directed by Chris Smith and details the festival that was supposed to be a luxury offering, but ultimately became one of the biggest jokes in the history of Twitter.
The documentary will cover the festival from the idea to host a high-end festival that brought attendees close to their friends to the tents and cheese sandwiches that hit social media. One of the subjects of the documentary will be the partner of the Murder Inc. rapper, Billy McFarland.
The Fyre Festival documentary will be available on January 18 and will features video directly from the festival grounds along with first-hand accounts from those who were just looking to have fun.
Normally when someone is receiving a Netflix documentary it’s a cause for celebration, that may be the opposite for Ja Rule. Netflix announced they will be releasing a documentary on the legendary failure of Fyre Festival.
The announcement was on Netflix’s See What’s Next Twitter account and detailed the Fyre Festival as “the greatest party that never happened.” The documentary will show everything from the concept development of the festival to the poor execution that spawned what may be the best day in Twitter history.
The Fyre Festival was a joint effort of Billy McFarland and Ja Rule, the latter apologized for it resulting in a colossal disappointment. McFarland was sentenced to six years in prison. You can learn all about the debacle on January 18.
Maybe this will be the last time Ja Rule has to hear about Fyre Festival, but then again, likely won’t be. Sorry, Ja.

Lately, Ja Rule has been in the news for a variety of reasons including performances to still beefing with 50 Cent. One topic that the Murder Inc legend can’t seem to get away from his the failed Fyre Festival, which Ja says he is “not ashamed” of.
If you need a refresher, Fyre Festival was supposed to be a luxury experience with top artists being able to be enjoyed with the most exclusive of reservations and accommodations. Instead, it failed and became one of the largest jokes in social media history centered around its images of tents and struggle meals.
Ja Rule hit Drinks Champs and revealed “I’m not ashamed of Fyre at all” and stated that the concept was a “brilliant” one.
“People didn’t really know I had anything to do with the festival until it went wrong. And then it was like, ‘Ja Rule’s festival!’,” he shared.
Ja did take some responsibility for things going wrong, stating she should have been more involved and made the mistake of trusting others with certain aspects of the business. Gauging how south it went, maybe he should have looked after a whole lot more.
