Like many artists trying to make a comeback, Ja Rule is eyeing his own reality show!
Vibe reports that the rapper, who just starred in I’m In Love WIth A Church Girl, is currently in talks with 51 MInds and producer Chris Abrego for a series 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,” Ja told Vibe. “When all of our minds get together, collectively we all get together, it’s going to be incredible.”
The series would show a different side of Ja, born Jeffery Atkins, as it follows him and his family at home. With “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle,” “Run’s House,” and “Marrying The Game,” 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.”
With a lengthy resume of successful reality shows, Chris knows what kind of have personalities are required for successful reality show. He’s convinced that Ja might just have “it.”
“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 explained to Vibe. “Ja is one of those rare cases where it really is the truth. You can’t help but watch this guy.”
