Ja Rule

Ja Rule Letter #1 From Prison: Inside Rule

Today I can truly say I’ve been through it all. A young kid comes in today they put him in the 18 cell right next to mine he looked kinda depressed coming in but nothing out of the ordinary.

A few hours go past and all of a sudden I hear someone choking he’s trying to kill his self.

We all heard it everyone runs to their cell doors and start kicking, banging, calling the CO’s. Now I’ve seen a person get shot and I’ve even seen someone die from a drug overdose but this was different this was suicide. It was like I can hear the life leaving his body the CO’s rush in the cell they saved him.

I didn’t even think some shit like this was possible in these cells. He tied his bed sheet to a pole that’s attached to a sink, which is about 3 feet off the ground, made some sort of noose, wrapped it around his neck then threw himself forward into a boston crab carmel clutch type position.

I never understood why a person would wanna kill themselves life is love & love is living it’s gods most precious gift.

After they brought him back to his cell in the suicide suit, he cried for hours.

We tried to console him telling him it’s never that bad to wanna kill yourself. Turns out he just turned 18 and got a girlfriend, who is only 16.

Her parents pressed charges and now he’s locked up on sex offender charges.

He was in school for graphic arts to learn how to make video games. It’s sad cause he’s still a kid himself, a good kid at that and now he’ll be forever labeled rapist or sex offender, when really he’s probably just a kid in love.

Wow it’s crazy how 2 years can be so close but yet so far.

When your 18 & 16, it seems far because he’s now an adult and she’s still a teen, but when your 10 & 12 it’s cute and innocent and when your 18 & 20 nobody gives a fuck.

It makes me think about Britt and her starting to date. I’m not gonna lie at 18 & 16 I’d be at a cross road too, but to ruin a young man’s life & stain his future is not right.

At 18 your legally an adult but your really still just a kid. I remember when I was 18, I thought I knew everything about life & living as I look back now as a 35-year-old man I realize I didn’t know shit LOL and I’m still learning & growing as a man.

Two years, that’s what separates me from my family right now and I look at it as short time, but yet when Ish told me that Britt’s acting partner was 17, I almost had a fit, even tho she’ll be 16 soon. I’m sure he’ll be 18 soon and BAM there it is crossroad LOL.

It’s funny how God puts situations in front of you so you can see it clearly. I trust Britt I know me & Ish raised her well, besides she hates Kids LOL.

But I also know the intentions of a young man. I got my eyes on you lil homie. Don’t make me come back to this motherfu**er!

    Good to hear Ja’s in good spirits. I need to stuff like this to keep me motivated to stay on a good road like my parents paved for me. I went through a period when I felt like I was wrong for just being me and that gang-bang lifestyle was the way to be. Not true! 

    Stay positive though Ja!

    Nice letter Ja….. I hated that dolla, dolla record and wasnt really feeling dude but I became a Ja Rule fan when he made every lil thing and always on time, those records was undeniable smash hits… then I met him on the video set of Rainy Dayz at the height of his fame and he was a down to earth ,good dude. I also watche 50 blowup and became a fan of his GRODT album too and of course that whole moment in hip hop was exciting but I saw wit my own eyes how fake and fickle people really are when at the Source Awards in Miami that year Rule went to walk the red carpet and the entire crowd just started booing. I was shocked, not a few people but the whole crowd and it made no sense! In hindsight I’m sure he woulda did a lotta things different but who wouldn’t thats why its called hindsight. At the end of the day everybody can live with success but how you live with the agony of betrayal and defeat and come back from it is what will make you a winner. Just from reading that letter it is obvious that in spite of all the pain and setbacks he’s had to face JaRule realizes he is very blessed and thats why in spite of everything he WILL WIN regardless of how many records he sells moving forward. Peace & blessings to Rule, his family, AHH community & everybody locked down for BS.

    “life is love & love is living it’s gods most precious gift.” – JA, in spit of the twists and turns, it’s good to know your heart is with your family.

    Man i dont feel sorry 4 his ass. Lol
    Ja did his dirt, and aint hardly the good guy he try to portrays.
    Though i dont wish jail on no man, i thinks it highly hypocritical of him,
    To write a letter, like this. Not when he has skeletons in his closet.

    Its two year, man up and do the time. I hope he dont follow the fake blood,
    Path and be writing letters every month.
    I sure he in PC, and he not getting treated like a regular inmate.

    • loushis25

      you ver been locked up 1 day feel like a week  a week feel like a month a month feel like a year and a year feel like a lifetime so don’t sit here and knock a brother while he’s down pc or not he still locked away from family and freedom smh niggaz is real ignorant!

      • EL_BARK

        Maybe u should re-read my post. I said i dont feel sorry 4 him.
        I then stated i dont wish JAIL on NO MAN.

        Now with that said. What do you think my answer is to your question.???

        I not kicking him when he down. I said man up and do the two years.

        I get tired of these rappers using jail, as a way to promote themselves,
        Or writing letter to stay relevant.
        Also i stated ja has done or been apart of his fair share of dirt,
        So he can miss me, with all this enlighten, malcolm little i am a changed man,
        Now cause i am sitting in a cell.
        Then you in PC at that, and your a celebrity, with money.
        Now u going to tell me, ja isnt prolly getting special treatment in there. Yeah ok.

        And your wrong, about Being locked up.

        Yeah maybe the first time, u get book it seems like the time drags.
        That because u sitting in a cell, with no clock, or mirror. Waiting to get the process,
        Or in the county. Waiting for a court date.
        Ask anybody, who been in & out if jail, or has bidded.

        The bad thing about jail, AFTER A WHILE.
        YOU GET USED TO IT. Why do u think so many people re-offend or
        70% of convicts end up going back.

        Yeah if u a lame and u staying in PC its ruff, cause you by yourself.
        You have a TV cable, & radio. Now what so hard about biding for his 2 years…

        I know plenty of niggahs on these streets who dont got cable.!!!!!

        A cell & 3 meals a day with cable would be a an upgrade 4 a lot if niggahs.

      • loushis25

        listen i aint wrong shit about being locked up i just came home 3 months ago from doing 3 years and did 2 and half 2 years before that so dont sit here and preach to me me about jail if you never did a bid i been through it myself and you is trying to kick a man while he down you a clown ass nigga.  And he has no choice about being in pc they send high profile people such as rappers and celebritys to pc  and whats so hard about bidding 2 years with cable and tv no family freedom having a co telling you when to eat shower etc. come on my man don’t talk about something you never been through stay in your lane !

      • EL_BARK

        Yawns…….

        I said i dont wish jail on no man. I said that cause i KNOW exactly whats its like.
        If u dont Know how to bid its hard.
        But for Niggahs, that used to it. A 2 year bid aint nothing.
        So how bout you stay in yall lane and dont assume thats everybody the same.
        You think u hard cause u did 2 & 1-2 years.

        Well i tell you the same thing i said about ja.,
        Man up niggah, no one made you do what you did to go to jail.
        U do your crime take ya time. Its weak niggas like you,
        That got the streets fuk up. Yeah you hate CO’s.

        Well when i bidded, I hate them to. But unlike yall
        Clowns ass, they fuk with me & didnt give me a hard time.
        I got food and everything else, i needed from CO’s.

        Anybody who been to jails, knows that.
        And no i wasnt no snitch.
        Cause CO’s dont fuk with snitches behind the wall.

        By the way. I was 15 lock up and charge ascan adult,
        Lock up in adult instititution, so it aint shet u can tell me.
        Bout how i feel.

        And thats just one time. like i said in my above post.

        After a while, most niggah gets used to it.
        Smh at a niggah wanting some sympathy, cause he bidding.

        Half way thugs.

        By the way, i was looking @ Football numbers when i took my adult case to trial.

        I bet yall ass folded and took a deal for ya three. Lol

    Here’s my take on this issue.. not Ja.. but the bigger picture.
    (it’s a read.. but.. I wanted to give my 2 cents)

    As black men we really gotta quit being so judgmental. Most of us either aspire to rap, or knows a friend that aspires to be a rapper. Why? Cause it’s ONE alternative to being broke. Yeah you can be a doctor, lawyer and all that good stuff.. if you have the self discipline to stick in school.

    Most of us don’t, so a lot of us even run to the army, navy, air force, marines, etc. even become cops.. why? Because a steady paycheck is better than being broke. 

    Now with that being said.. nowadays rappers are judged based on “how real their street cred is”not how “nice their mic skills are”.. I wish it was still about the mic steel skills not the .45 cal steel skills that drives a rappers success… but it is what it is.. until we root out the ignorance we will constantly spoon feed our kids the recycled crap we are being fed by today’s entertainers.

    It’s not all the corporations fault.. if our own moral compass.. weak minds are easy to be exploited… but the strong ones gotta say “enough is enough… take that wack ish and step”…then support positive music.. cause we’re doing ourselves no good if you think this rapper or that rapper is nice but he’s still promoting the poison.

    These young men/women are going off into a career path built around the illusion of success which is only   a mask for using a persons weakness and greed to further the labels own desire for the bottom dollar. This is what the industry is about. There are only a few entertainers and business men that value their integrity more than the almighty dollar but most of the industry is filled with leeches, snakes, groupies, druggies, wannabees, frauds…etc. so rappers surround themselves with their own crew for security and friendship. 

    Problem is they are still expected to live up the hype of being  a star… the ice, whips, chips, kicks, and of course the guns.. which brings me to Ja. 

    The fans big you up if you talk wild on a record and back it up in the streets UNTIL you catch a case.. then you a fool. 

    OR

    The fans big you up cause you talk that slick stuff on wax but when the streets TEST YOU.. and you fold or try to talk your way out of a situation (vs. jail, prison) then you soft, you a studio G.. 

    So a lot of this unnecessary pressure that’s put on rappers are the fans fault… YES ultimately they made the choice , but how many of us do the exact same thing they do in everyday life?.. we’re just not being watched as much as these rappers are…and doing a bid and loosing your freedom hits them harder because they lose more (material wealth). Time lost is the same no matter who serves it.. that’s your own freedom and time from your life that was taken.

    Aiight, that’s it for me. I didn’t want to speak on my history in the game.. but I figured if you read my piece you can tell I know what’s I’m speaking about… from first hand knowledge.

    One.

    I did 364 in the county once, the first month I was there, this was before the trial when I didnt know if they were gonna give me 5 yrs or not (Possession with intent charge) I was miserable as hell, but I dont think I’d of tried to kill myself over it

    He’s right about these sex charges tho, its going too far, an 18 year old dating a 16 year old isnt a pervert but for the rest of his life he’ll have to stand in line and register with 50 year old dudes who like lil boys, he’ll have a hard time finding an apartment complex to rent to him, finding a job, or any other part of life you can name and thats overkill for somebody who was just probably in love with a girl 2 years younger then him

    One of many laws that needs to be re-examined

  7. R_REAL_TALK

    NN?IGGA STOP SELLING THESE JAIL STORIES TO THE PUBLIC LIKE T.I WAS DOING MAKEN IT SEEMS LIKE YOU HAD A FIGHT WITH 20 NN?IGGAS AND WAS PUT IN THE HOLE FOR KNOCKING OUT THE BIGGEST GUARD THEIR,   YEAH RIGHT JA JUST CONCENTRATE ON THAT SOAP BAR NN?IGGA GET THE SOAP ON A ROPE AND KEEEP YOUR BIG AA?SS MOUTH SHUT WHILE YOU IN THEIR OR YOU WILL COME OUT THE SLAMMER LIKE MANO WITH A RAZOR SLICE ON THE SIDE OF YOUR FACE FOR TALKING AND SNITCHING YOU NO WHAT IT IS MY NN?IGGA????

    P.S I HOPE YOU DONT THINK AFTER THIS BID YOU THINK YOUR, GONNA COME OUT ON SOME HEAVY SS?HIT,YOUR ALBUM SALES WILL BE THE SAME AS IF YOU NEVER WENT IN LIKE 50 CENT YOUR BUDDY STRAIGHT COPPER NO PLATINUM????

    Well… Not a big fan, but he’s right…

    18 and 16 years old? The Law should reduce charges for this little difference… Kinda fu**ed up if you ask me.

  10. Bernie Hardknock

    I was 19 and my girl was 16 when we started dating… Now i’m 27 and she’s 24 and we’re married with two kids… Kind of scary to think I could have been labeled a sex offender….
