Ja Rule is currently serving a two-year bid for gun possession, but time behind bars isn’t so bad for the former Murder Inc. rapper. In an interview with New York Daily News, Ja, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, said that he’s befriended former state controller Alan Hevesi and former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski and that prison is “amazing” for hosting these types of individuals.

“Outside, you don’t meet guys like this every day. This place is amazing,” he said. “Koz just got out on work release. Not to say I wish he was still here… But they’re both great, smart guys.

“It’s funny,” he added. “We’re from totally different walks of life. But when you’re here, you’re here.”
