Comedian Hannibal Buress took a swipe at Ja Rule's bombed Fyre Festival while he announced his own inaugural Isola Fest.

"I'm having a festival December 13-15th in rural Mississippi. That's kind of short notice but I'm good with it. Isola is short for Isolation. I know this sounds like some Fyre Festival part 2 type situation but we have things pretty much in order," he wrote on Instagram.

"Our sandwiches are just as equally trash as theirs though. Some things you just can't control. This is the town my mother's side of the family is from," he continued.

The event is a three-day comedy and music festival which will features performances from Flying Lotus, T-Pain, and his bestie Open Mike Eagle. 

Ja Rule's Fyre Festival went viral after the ticket buyers landed on the island of Great Exuma only to find the set up incomplete, no rooms to sleep in despite forking out thousands, and the catering was sub-par, to say the least.
