Sorry to all the Ja Rule fans...

Looks like Jeff's album "The Mirror" isn't going to be seeing a release until 2008 but why? According to the official Murder Inc website it's due to "...sample clearance issues" (he's tried to sample The Beatles who notoriously are hard to clear samples through - only the Wu Tang Clan have managed to get something cleared EVER!) but Ja very candidly says it's due to different reasons:

"I was going to put the album out November 13 but I decided to wait," Ja told SOHH. "The new year is fresh. It's only a couple of months away. So, since everything is fresh and new, what I'm doing, I felt, I'ma let it linger. Plus, [there's] a lot of traffic right now. It's that fourth quarter traffic, you know what I mean? It's gonna be real heavy out there so I'ma let all the heavy heavys do their thing and @#!* and I'ma kick it off real fresh in the new year and splash. That's how I'm feeling right now with the project."

I think this is a really good move by Ja Rule - let's be honest, are you going to buy a Jay-Z or Ja Rule album right now? Even with this clever advertising campaign...

What do you think?
