Murder Inc. reunites…at least for a photo.
While most know Murder Inc. as Ja Rule’s former record label, the name also once belonged to a short-lived supergroup formed by Ja, Jay Z, and DMX in 1999. The trio has since gone through ups and downs, but all seemed well on Friday (Oct. 7) when they reunited at Beyoncé’s final “Formation World Tour” date at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.
Backstage, Rule, Hov, and X bonded. They laughed and appeared to share stories and rhymes while hanging out in a greenroom. It was a throwback to their days as Murder Inc. and other great times, like when they joined forces on the “Hard Knock Life” in 1999. It brought back memories of their only collaborations, “Murdergram” and “It’s Murda.”

In fact, X is reciting lyrics to Jay’s verse off “It’s Murda” in a behind-the-scenes video that emerged from last night’s reunion. Despite that, however, the group never collaborated as a trio again.
