Happy Birthday Ja-Rule!! Ja-Rule is a LEAP YEAR baby so he REAL birthday is February 29!! So he has been here for 44 years , but TECHNICALLY he is 13 year’s OLD! At any rate, the LEAP YEAR kid is the rapper, songwriter behind MANY a HIT song of his own and others, so HOWEVER he is spending his TRUE birthday, we wish him the BEST. We are sure he is still ‘Livin It Up’…and with that LEAD-IN, let’s THROW IT BACK to 2001 with ‘Livin It Up’ with a little help from Case on the HOOK!!
