The story of the failed Fyre Festival continues to give the media well everyone in general —  a field day.

An article by the New York Times details how co-creator, Billy McFarland, is no stranger to exploiting Ja Rule’s celebrity status.

In the article, McFarland allegedly started a membership club for “upwardly mobile millennials,” helping him to become a nightlife fixture in New York. This led to him booking Ja Rule for a private concert, thus beginning a partnership between two., the 25-year-old entrepreneur attempted to sell name-dropping on a Ja Rule song in a hairbrained scheme to make quick cash. The New York Times obtained McFarland’s text message with the offer, which was sent out to associates as one of many attempts to make money on the side.

In 2016, the 25-year-old attempted to sell name-dropping on a Ja Rule song "in a hairbrained scheme to make quick cash." NYT obtained McFarland’s text message with the offer, which was sent out to associates as one of many attempts to make money on the side:

“Ja Rule is working on a new song and can mention your name, nickname, company name, etc in the upcoming hit single for $450 ... 5 Spots. LMK!”

To make matters worse, Federal authorities are looking into the possibility bringing charges of mail, wire and securities fraud. The United States attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York and the FBI are conducting the investigation.

Let's see how this plays out ... I am counting on it getting worse before it gets better.
