MILWAUKEE -- Rapper Ja Rule is taking heat on social media after problems with his halftime show during Saturday's Timberwolves-Bucks game.
Videos posted online show Ja Rule had sound problems at the beginning of his performance. At one point he said, "Are we ready?" then said, "I guess not," before his music eventually started.
Another video shows Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo taking warm-up shots while Ja Rule was still performing.

Ja Rule responded to critics on Twitter, saying his sound "didn't come on when it was supposed to" but he "rocked." When the Timberwolves' official Twitter account mocked Ja Rule, he responded by cursing the team:
You just jinx yourself talking to the GOD this way... your CURSED NOW!!! You won't win a championship for the next 30 years... AND KAT IS LEAVING!!! Apologize and I'll lift the CURSE!!! 😘 kiss of death... https://t.co/RzUn4vKx2Y— Ja Rule (@Ruleyork) February 24, 2019
Ja Rule has been the subject of ridicule for his role in the failed Fyre Festival in the Bahamas. He recently told TMZ that he plans to create another music festival.
