Just days after being released from house arrest, the even more swollen Ja Rule makes his long-awaited return to the mic on the official remix to N.O.R.E.'s 'She Tried.'

He may have been locked up for the last two years -- on concurrent sentences for illegal weapons possession and tax evasion -- but the former Murder Inc. star hits the ground running (for the most part, anyway -- he makes a questionable reference to Frank Ocean) with a vintage guest verse. Birdman provides the other new verse to compliment Noreaga and Lil Wayne's hilarious original contributions.

'She Tried' is culled from the Queens rapper's recent 'Student of the Game' album. Fans can expect a sequel to that LP, as well as a compilation project from his new Good Belt Gang (whose members he has yet to disclose) later this year.
