The music never stops in Abu Dhabi, with rapper Ja Rule the latest star to fly in for a gig.

He will be appearing at a special edition of MAD on Yas Island’s Time Out award-winning night URBN on Thursday, January 25.

There will be a free bar for ladies all night long.

The 41-year-old burst onto the scene in 1999 with hit single Holla Holla and has collaborated with some of R’n’B and hip-hop’s biggest names, including Cristina Milian, Jay-Z and Jennifer Lopez. His biggest hit is 2001’s Always on Time, featuring Ashanti.

Outside of music Rule has carved a career for himself as an actor, appearing in The Fast and the Furious, Assault on Precinct 13 and Half Past Dead with Steven Seagal.

He has been back in the public eye recently after reigniting an old feud with rival rapper 50 Cent.

Thu, Jan 25, 11pm-3am. MAD on Yas Island (055 834 6262).
