Ja Rule is returning to television.
Queen Latifah and Ja’s longtime friend/collaborator Irv Gotti are producing Follow The Rules, a new show that will follow Ja (whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins), his wife Aisha, their two sons, and their college-age daughter. His mother and mother-in-law will also be featured.
Follow the Rules has been picked up by MTV. Programming president Susanne Daniels issued the following statement:
“Ja Rule is the modern-day reality rap star version of Bill Cosby’s role from ‘The Cosby Show,’” Daniels stated. “He embraces a unique parenting style with his teenage kids that feels fresh and funny. We’re excited to be in business with him and his delightful family.”
Hmm… We already have ‘Family Hustle’ with T.I. and Tiny — are you interested in seeing a Ja Rule version?
