Unruly by Ja Rule
International Platinum recording star Ja Rule has sold 30 million records worldwide over his decade-long career. Audiences can’t get enough of his distinctively raw sound, addictive beats, and clever lyrics. His triumphs have brought him undreamed-of success and celebrity; his tribulations have brought him notoriety and unforgiving media attention. But who is Ja Rule?
Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Becoming a Man reveals the real man behind the persona that dominates the stage and emerges from his music. In this emotive page-turner, readers truly get to know the performer. Ja Rule honestly and unapologetically delves into the pain of being a fatherless child raised by a single mother, and eventually growing up to fulfill his dreams of becoming an iconic figure in hip hop and beyond. He speaks with brutal candor of his own staggering mistakes, including gun possession, senseless violence, drug dealing, petty theft, substance and alcohol abuse, and landing behind bars.
“Ja Rule’s candid, unvarnished view of guns, drugs, depression, fame, lust, love, and family and that makes this a remarkable memoir and a worthy read.” – Publisher’s Weekly
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ja for years, and yet reading this book made me feel like I was meeting a new man. His struggle shave been many, but he’s come out stronger for them. Unruly is a remarkable look at someone I consider a dear friend.” – Queen Latifah, television host and author of Put On Your Crown
