Since his May prison release, it appears that rapper Jeffrey “Ja Rule” Atkins is making an attempt to clean up his once popular bad boy persona. A few weeks ago we told you about his new movie role in upcoming Christian drama, I’m In Love With A Church Girl. We’ve also recently learned that he’s in the process of working on a new reality show with T.I. & Tiny: Family Hustle producer, Cris Abrego. According to Ja, the show will be extremely positive and family friendly.

“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. When all of our minds get together, collectively we all get together, it’s going to be incredible,” the 37-year-old rapper said during an interview with Vibe.

“It is a good family show. Television needs more positivity, especially young black families to look at. 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,” he continued.

Cris adds that Ja has one of those personalities that belong on television.

“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. Ja is one of those rare cases where it really is the truth. You can’t help but watch this guy. That he’s a legend in the music business, one of the greats, is almost beside the point. The simple fact is, he’s a truly memorable personality with a fascinating life to match. And we’re extremely excited to have the opportunity to create some equally memorable television around him.”

So what do you think? Would you check out a reality show starring Ja Rule?
