The Last Temptation is the fourth recording studio album by Ja Rule. It was released by Murder Inc. and Def Jam on November 19, 2002. This album contained singles such as "Thug Lovin'" (featuring Bobby Brown), "Mesmerize" (featuring Ashanti) and "The Pledge (Remix)" (by Ashanti featuring Nas, Ja Rule and 2Pac). Murder Reigns" was also released as a single titled "Reign" in select territories outside of North America, such as Europe and Australasia.
Ja Rule released his third studio album, Pain Is Love, on October 2, 2001. Like its predecessor, Pain Is Love topped the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 361,000 copies and is certified triple platinum by the RIAA. The album also received a Grammy nomination in 2002 for Best Rap Album The Last Temptation (2002). After leaving Murder Inc. in 2009, Ja Rule founded his own independent label, Mpire Music Group and recruited new artists while still maintaining his friendship with Gotti. The Mirror was to be Ja Rule's seventh album and was initially set for a 2007 release date, but due to poor reception of its singles, it was pushed back. Tracks from the album leaked online, leading Ja Rule to re-record the album entirely. He eventually released it as a free to download mixtape in 2009. Pain Is Love 2 and prison (2011–12).
Ja Rule had mastered the rap game with this LP. He'd perfected his formula for pop-crossover songwriting and managed to lay down quite a few lyrical tracks (So Much Pain). Maybe he had a ghostwriter or portrayed images he wan't about, he killed the radio scene and did it well. 60. Following the same recipe, he serves another set of glamorous, crossover rawness with floating foundation.
