Ashanti & Ja Rule Reunite On 'Helpless' From Broadway's 'Hamilton' - Listen Now!

It’s Murder Inc! Ashanti and Ja Rule reunite on “Helpless,” a brand new collaboration for Hamilton: The Mixtape!

The 40-year-old rapper and Ashanti, 36, who have collaborated on a string of top five hits in the early 2000s, play the role of Alexander Hamilton and his wife Eliza on the reinterpretation from the Broadway musical.

Earlier this month, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda made an appearance on Conan and expressed that the Murder Inc. duo were actually the muses for “Helpless.”

“When I was writing that song, I was picturing it as Ashanti and Ja Rule,” Lin revealed. “I was like, ‘Eliza’s Ashanti. Hamilton’s Ja Rule. Two verses, two choruses. A little Ja Rule. And then they’re married.’”
