In a Twitter submit, Ja Rule wrote: “I will be re-releasing ALL of my albums as visual albums… I will be making a video for every song I’ve ever made… what songs do y’all wanna see videos for???”

The 43-year-old rapper – whose hits embrace Livin’ It Up and Always On Time – later clarified he can be taking pictures “over 40” movies, however they might not embrace tracks that have already got movies.

One Twitter person requested Ja Rule why he was asking followers to decide on which songs they wished to see new movies made for, when he was supposedly recording “visual albums” for all his earlier information.

He replied: “I wanna see which records are favoured.”
