Legal Problems

Rule settled out of court with a man he punched in Toronto in 2003. In 2004, he was arrested for having marijuana on him and driving with a license that had been taken away. In 2007, he was charged with having a gun and drugs.

He spent almost two years in a federal prison because he stole guns and didn’t pay his taxes. He is said to have not paid taxes on $3 million in earnings between 2004 and 2006.


Ja Rule has fought with 50 Cent and G-Unit Records, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Shady Records, Aftermath, Foxy Brown, Lil’ Mo, and Dr. Dre again.

In another fight in New York City, one of Ja Rule’s artists on Murder Inc., rapper Black Child, stabbed 50 Cent, causing him to need stitches. In May 2011, both rappers said that the fight between them was over.

What Was His Secret to Success?

Apart from rapping, Ja Rule has been in films for about as long as he has been doing music. In the original The Fast and the Furious, he had a brief role as a street racer who worried more about his reputation than his money.

He even released a handful of songs to coincide with the release of the film. He has since starred in action films, comedies, and even dramas.

The risk of drastically altering a music that had already shown to be successful, hardcore rap, to one that would have seemed out of place for the rapper, radio friendly pop, was what helped Rule the most.

Rule 3:36 was awarded triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America as a result of these enormous risks. The third studio album, Pain Is Love, increased the risk by going all-in on commercial pop.

Despite being blasted by critics, the album was even more successful, earning triple platinum certification. Ja Rule and his family appeared in the reality show Follow The Rules in 2015.


Despite the rapper not having made a successful album since 2004, it was co-produced by Queen Latifah and received good ratings.
