Ja Rule is out of prison and ready to stage his comeback, looks like he’s plotting a reality tv show.
According to reports, the rapper has partnered up with 51 Minds and Chris Abrego to develop a new reality show.
“First and foremost anything that I try to do, I try to bring my professionalism and creativity to the table and I think with myself and Cris,” Ja told Vibe. “When all of our minds get together, collectively we all get together, it’s going to be incredible.”
The series would follow Ja, born Jeffery Atkins, at home with his family and be more like Marrying The Game than Love & Hip Hop.
Ja Rule wouldn’t be the first rapper to welcome cameras into his home. That’s not discouraging him, though, because he feels like there’s plenty of room for more shows like his.
“It is a good family show. Television needs more positivity, especially young black families to look at,” Ja stated. “To see that it is not just negativity when it comes to Black couples on television, but also a lot of good families out there raising kids and doing good things out there. And also have fun out there and it doesn’t have to be corny.”
“I’ve been in this business long enough to know that everyone thinks they belong on television, that they have a big enough personality, or interesting enough lifestyle, that regular people will want to watch them,” Chris tells VIBE. “Ja is one of those rare cases where it really is the truth. You can’t help but watch this guy. That he’s a legend in the music business, one of the greats, is almost beside the point. The simple fact is, he’s a truly memorable personality with a fascinating life to match. And we’re extremely excited to have the opportunity to create some equally memorable television around him.”
