"Ja Rule, actor, singer, songwriter, and one of the most multi-dimensional rap artists of his time, tells his compelling story--from his youth to his rise to international fame to his transformative two years in Federal prison--and reveals the man beneath the legend. 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."--from publisher's web site.

In his first book, rapper Ja Rule explains how hard times led to his success with a microphone...and his time in prison. Growing up in Queens, gang life and drug dealing were an irresistible lure; after dropping out of high school, he sold crack while working on his rhymes. Though recalling both his troubled youth and his years in Federal prison (each chapter ends with a handwritten letter from his time there), Ja Rule also explains how he eventually got sober and grew up; Publishers Weekly calls Unruly "a remarkable memoir and a worthy read." Popular Culture newsletter September 2014.
