Rapper Ja Rule is looking to make a comeback with hopes of landing his very own reality show.
According to Vibe, the rapper is currently in negotiations with 51 Minds and producer Cris 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.”
Ja will showcase a different side with the series, as it follows him and his family at home. He would be joining the likes of other rappers such as T.I., Rev. Run, and The Game, who have brought cameras into their home life.
“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.”
Producer Cris Abrego has eye for the type of personalities that make for good reality TV, and he feels that Ja might 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,” Abrego told Vibe. “Ja is one of those rare cases where it really is the truth. You can’t help but watch this guy.”
