Ja Rule is inspired to bring his fans and other content creators through his newest tech company, ICONN. Ja Rule is a rapper, but most importantly he is also a serial entrepreneur.
The Queens rapper is prepared and excited to launch his technology company, ICONN.
The upcoming company will be used as a tool for content creators (musicians) to do business directly with their fans. Many know this is a huge deal for Ja Rule and how happy he is about his work, and he also believes that it is a game-changer for artists who want to connect with their fanbases while being proactive and safe during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
The rapper stated, “This is for fans to actively connect with their favorite celebs. That is a special connection to be made, and not a lot of platforms cater to that fan. I wanted to create a space for them, where we can give back to them.”
Ja Rule explains why ICONN is such a special company
Later on, Ja Rule explained what makes ICONN special compared to other social platforms such as Myspace, Instagrams, Twitter, and Facebook.
“ICONN is a monetization platform with a social feel. A powerful robust tool for creatives that connects them directly with their fans/consumers.”
“In a way the consumer can think of ICONN, like an Amazon, we provide human services in the entertainment space,” Ja Rule explained. “Those services range from a variety of things such as booking talent for live events to a celebrity hairstylist, fashion stylist, and makeup artist. The live component offers a different experience where creatives are offered monetary features such as tipping, private live requests, live scheduling, and charitable live options,” he continues. “It’s all about connecting fans with celebrities and those that live in that space on a day-to-day basis and ICONN brings that to the consumer!”
Of course, the entrepreneur rapper is brilliant to add a feature where artists who use this app will financially profit from it. ICONN provides a feature where creators/artists can charge fans a fee starting at 1 cent and 10 cents being their highest, which fans will be charged to view content.
“The goal is to change the way fans view the value of content coming from their favorite artists,” he states.
