Ja had a deal with TVT but it went nowhere and he ended up on Def Jam. His guest features ended up warranting an album from tracks like 4 Seasons and Murdergram as well as the hit Can I Get . hich was initially his record until Jay asked for it to use on Vol. 2. Ja’s release instead for this album would be Holla Holla. This don’t really sound all that great now but it’s okay. Recent Album Listens 5. Upvote +42 Downvote.

Before even releasing his debut album Venni Vetti Vecci, Ja Rule had made a name for himself appearing on cuts by Mic Geronimo, DMX, and Jay-Z, which naturally increased expectations for his first effort. Perhaps the expectations were raised a little bit too much, since Venni isn't the stunner some may have expected, but it nevertheless is a strong opening salvo. Ja Rule doesn't bend the rules of East Coast hardcore hip-hop enough to truly distinguish himself, but he does deliver a solid record, filled with tough party jams and good straight-ahead gangsta.
Venni Vetti Vecci is the debut studio album by American hip hop recording artist Ja Rule. It was released on June 1, 1999, by Murder Inc. Records, distributed by Def Jam. The album title alludes to the Latin phrase "veni, vidi, vici", meaning "I came, I saw, I conquered".
