Ja Rule "Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Becoming a Man" Book Release Date & Cover

Ja Rule reveals the cover of his new book, "Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Becoming a Man."

Ja Rule has released the cover and title of his upcoming book, Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Becoming a Man.

"Unruly is two stories that offer one complete picture of a man and his world: the angry, fatherless rapper, Ja Rule who was 'raised by the streets' and Jeffrey Atkins, the insightful, reflective father and loyal husband who learned the hard way how to be a good man," Amazon's description of the book says. "Filled with never-before-revealed anecdotes and 16 pages of black-and-white photos,Unruly shows the determination that it takes to become a man in today’s society. Ja Rule considers the lack of role models for many young Black men today—a void that leads to bad choices and the wrong paths. Recalling his youth, he illuminates the seductive pull of the streets and the drug dealers who were his earliest role models.

"Jeffrey Atkins offers practical wisdom—reflection, growth and hope learned first-hand as an inmate, father, husband, and community role model," the description continues. "He speaks fondly of men who inspiredUnruly—the inmates he met in prison whose misguided ideas of masculinity landed them behind bars—and Louis Farrakhan who mediated the televised encounter with Ja Rule’s adversary, 50 Cent. Unruly is a compelling, personal look at the duality and conflicts that arise in the African-American male psyche from a man who has enjoyed breathtaking fame and suffered heartbreaking misfortune."

Earlier this year, Ja Rule spoke on rumors that he would be releasing a cookbook.

“I don’t know how this whole cookbook thing got started," Ja Rule said at the time. "I was on a cooking show with [Geoffrey] and Guy and Bobby Flay, and all those guys were there. And were joking around, talking about what I ate in prison. And I was telling them, ‘Well, I ate such and such and this and that and the third’…Yeah, we definitely cooked in prison. You definitely get to cook in prison. You get a microwave and you get a toaster oven…The cookbook was a joke that me and Jeff and Guy were making. And then all over the media is, ‘Ja’s doing a cookbook.’ So, I guess I’m doing a cook—you know what’s even funnier, HarperCollins hit me yesterday and said ‘Ja, we would love to do your cookbook.’ 'Cause I’m actually doing a book with them right now. I’m doing my memoirs with HarperCollins.”

The cover of the book is below.

    Ya all listen to me both Ja and 50 cent are grown up if they still can't let this go then both don't deserve to be on stage again to entertain people or sing for fans. Life is one big road which has many signage it is up to them to read signs and make right decision which will forever reflects on their image. I strongly think they should let it go and move forward as role models which they both claims to be.

    Let me tell you this the only street nigga is Gucci Mane: * Jay-Z rapping since he was 15 years in the group High Potent. So when did he sold drugs? Between 10 and 15 years? Nobody in Brooklyn can confirm his crime stories. Did this nigga Jay not called the LAPD the get his masters back? * Drake i'm not gonna discuss this faggot. * Ice Cube was 14/15 years old when he was in the group C.I.A. Same story Lying-Z. * Nas Escobar stole his name from druglord Pablo Escobar but the only thing Nas Escobar ever sold in his life are records. * Dr. Dre the nigga who never make beats but uses ghostproducers. (Sam Sneed, Daz, warren G, Cold187um, The Glove, Mell Man etc.) Dr. Dre is as gangsta as there are ghosts. NOT! * 50 Cent sold drugs but on a small level. End of the crime stories. After that he snitched on Murda INC to get a restraining order. FACTS! * The Shame oops i mean The Game a former male stripper and now a attention whore. His own brother said that The Shame is a phony. So who do you you believe? * Flopp Deep oops i mean Mobb Deep some former arts of school studenst and balerina's. Nobody in Queens can confirm there crime stories. * Young Jeezy already exposed by Pimp C as a phony. FACTS! * T.I. he snithed to the feds. Illegal weapons charge thats 10/15 years jail. Come on. * Lil Wayne i aint gonna discuss this faggot. The list goes on....... they all OSG Original Studio Gangstas but NOT Gucci straight up FACTS about selling dope, killing and beating people.

    Check out my next book "Ja Lost: A Tribute to the Little Homie" where I discuss how 50 Cent destroyed this nigga's career, examine his fruity collaborations with Lil Mo, J. Lo and Ashanti, how this nigga went from having a gold record with R.U.L.E. to barely selling 7000 copies of Pain Is Love 2 in 2 years, and many more.

      "What indie artist sells major numbers" Macklemore, Tyler the Creator, Mac Miller

    • Byron Crawford

      Indy or not, those numbers are still embarrassing as fuck, considering he used to sell millions of records and was one of the biggest rap artists in the game. Y'all are just some biased Ja fans still denying that your homie Ja lost and fell off hard.

    "and Jeffrey Atkins, the insightful, reflective father and loyal husband who learned the hard way how to be a good man," Amazon's description of the book says" I have a hard time believing the Rule was faithful all those years to his wife, especially when his lyrics told a different story.
