Rapper/actor Ja Rule has another hit on his hands but this time, it’s not a movie or a film. Rule, the rapper from Queens, whose hits “Holla Holla,” Can I Get A…””Put It On Me,” “Ain’t It Funny” and “I’m Real” shot him to the top of the hip-hop stratosphere in the 2000’s has just penned a memoir Unruly.
It takes you from his life coming up as part of the Queens hip-hop contingent and into the early days of rap when he was rhyming with DMX and Jay-Z.
In fact, he says his big break was with Jigga.
“I’d probably say ‘Can I Get A,” with me and Jay-Z on the ‘Rush Hour’ soundtrack. That was my first big introduction to the music business. I applaud his efforts and what he’s done for the music business.”
Rule’s book covers a lot of his early life and his career including his stint in jail for a weapons violation. He also covers his infamous feud with 50 Cent, one many music observers feel was the death knell for his rap career. Rule has he has heard that some folks are “butt-hurt” about some of the things he said in the book, but that he’s way past over any previous hip-hop beef.
