Just three months since his release from prison, Ja Rule is making moves to become a reality TV star.
According to reports, the rapper is in talks with “T.I. & Tiny: Family Hustle” producer Cris Abrego to create a family show of his own.
“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. When all of our minds get together, collectively we all get together, it’s going to be incredible,” the 37-year-old said during a recent interview with Vibe.
“It is a good family show,” he added, which will include his wife Aisha and three kids Brittany, Jeff Jr, and Jordan. “Television needs more positivity, especially young black families to look at. 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.”
Cris Abrego says Ja Rule is “truly memorable personality with a fascinating life to match.”
“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. Ja is one of those rare cases where it really is the truth,” he explained. “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.”
Cris is also the mastermind behind “For The Love of Ray J” and “Flavor of Love.”
“I am very excited and I love Cris,” Ja said. His “work speaks for itself and this marriage that we just made is going to be a long one.”
A premiere date for the upcoming series has yet to be announced, but we’re sure it will find a home on VH1.
