Ja Rule has announced a new release date for his upcoming Book “Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Becoming a Man” originally slated for a June 3rd release but according Ja Rule himself the new date is July 1st. Also to our surprise Ja Rule has revealed that he will release a “soundtrack” alongside the book and our sources tell us it will be a 10 track album with long time collaborator 7 Aurelius coming on board to Executive Produce the project. 7 Aurleius and Ja Rule last worked together on Ja Rule’s 2012 release PIL2.
“Unruly is two stories that offer one complete picture of a man and his world: the angry, fatherless rapper, Ja Rule who was ‘raised by the streets’ and Jeffrey Atkins, the insightful, reflective father and loyal husband who learned the hard way how to be a good man,” Amazon’s description of the book says. “Filled with never-before-revealed anecdotes and 16 pages of black-and-white photos,Unruly shows the determination that it takes to become a man in today’s society. Ja Rule considers the lack of role models for many young Black men today—a void that leads to bad choices and the wrong paths. Recalling his youth, he illuminates the seductive pull of the streets and the drug dealers who were his earliest role models.
“Jeffrey Atkins offers practical wisdom—reflection, growth and hope learned first-hand as an inmate, father, husband, and community role model,” the description continues. “He speaks fondly of men who inspiredUnruly—the inmates he met in prison whose misguided ideas of masculinity landed them behind bars—and Louis Farrakhan who mediated the televised encounter with Ja Rule’s adversary, 50 Cent. Unruly is a compelling, personal look at the duality and conflicts that arise in the African-American male psyche from a man who has enjoyed breathtaking fame and suffered heartbreaking misfortune.”
Unruly’s cover has also been updated to reflect on a fan’s poll Ja Rule held on twitter to decide which one best suited the title.
