Benjamin Earl Turner has redefined the modern day American dream in his latest video "JA RULE," released Wednesday.
While the song and video seemingly have nothing to do with Ja Rule the rapper (save for a few moments where Turner taps into Ja's gruff register), the timing couldn't be more clever. When you search Ja Rule on YouTube, Turner's video appears in the top five results, the first few, of course, being the "Put it on Me" rapper's response to his involvement in the failed Fyre Festival following last week's release of dueling documentaries about the disastrous event. Touché, Turner. Touché.
