Ja Rule Talks Prison, Drugs in Music, & New Movie on ‘Wendy’

Ja Rule

Fresh out the pen, Ja Rule sat down with his old pal Wendy Williams for his first daytime interview since his two-year prison stint. The 37-year-old rapper opened up about why he went to jail, how he spent his time behind bars (getting his GED, domestic work), and how his fellow prisoners reacted to him.

“When I got there, people actually had a lot of admiration for me, a lot of love for me. It was a really different experience,” he said.

Wendy also asked what he thought of artists such as Miley Cyrus glorifying drugs in their music. “We as artists, we have the right to express ourselves,” said Rule, who is now drug free. “I also believe that we have the obligation to the youth to be somewhat responsible in what we say on records.”

Rule stars alongside Adrienne Bailon in the Christian drama I’m in Love with a Church Girl, which hits theaters on Friday.
