As the flagship artist for producer Irv Gotti's Def Jam-affiliated Murder Inc. label, Ja Rule became one of the rap industry's most commercially successful artists during the early 2000s, working closely with the hitmaking producer and his stable of talent. Born Jeffrey Atkins on February 29, 1976, in Queens, NY, Ja Rule established himself with Venni Vetti Vecci (1999), a hardcore ... Read more in Amazon's Ja Rule Store

Editorial Reviews

Don't let the rough exterior and the propensity to rhyme about acts of violence and criminal activities fool ya. No sir, Ja Rule is a lover and girl he's gonna make you love him. Make you as in wear you down and render you defenseless against his almost nonstop and thereby "persuasive" presentations of the pros of loving a thug. He might be crude, he might be loud (hell is he loud) and his flow might make DMX's canine fixations seem like subtle artistry. But be he rapping or be he semi-sing-songy vocalizing, Ja Rule's brand of rough-and-tough love gets under your skin. OK, it also starts to get on your nerves, but what Mr. Rule lacks in finesse he makes up for in intensity. Musically, his sophomore CD, with its stutter-stop break-point beats and its rich, resonant sound is nothing to ignore. Which must be why the first single, the off-kilter "Between Me and You," is so successful. This isn't groundbreaking or even significant stuff, but Ja's raspy roar has a certain appeal. While said appeal is geared towards men in the joint and the women who stand by them, you can't hate on a guy for trying, in his own way, to show a little love in this cold, cold world. --Amy Linden

5.0 out of 5 stars Ja Rules October 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After listening to the CD more and more I had to make another review. This CD has a whole different feel than his first album "venni vetti vecci." "Rule 3:36" has less of the gangster rap that his first album was so full of.
I like the darker songs like "6 Feet Underground", "Die", "F--- You", and "The Rule Won't Die."
But I also like the other songs like "Between Me and You", "Put it On Me", "It's Your Life", and "One of Us."
I really love this album... you guys gotta check it out.

Ok, yes this album is not as good as "Venni, Vetti, Vecci" but that was hands down a classic. BUt once again the best rapper ever proves why he can do it again. The main difference between this album & the first is that this one is more based around murder inc. rappers rather then top name def jam artists. Instead of Jay-z, Bleek, DMX, Case there's Vita, Jayo Felony, Tah, or Black Child. The one other thing that makes this different from the first is that on the first one every song has a dark beet to it, this one has a couple beets to speak of with this kind of beet such as Die, Watching Me, & 6 Feet Underground & these are all the better tracks just for this reason. Yea Ja is still the best ever & it shows once again on this album. Now I'll break down the cd track by track. 1. Intro - Basically just a short 1 minute freestyle. 2. Watching Me - Probably my favorite song on this album, a little bit to short but still has an awesome beet along with Ja's voice. 3. Between Me and You - The first hit single, really i think there about 3 or 4 better tracks on the album but this still a very good song with a crazy beet. 4. Put it on Me - Maybe the best track, & if not it's up there. It's got a great chorus & Vita adds a nice touch to it. 5. 6 Feet Underground - A song that i think has very good potential to being the second single of this record. Has a nice dark beet with a weird sounding guy oy girl repeatign "6 Feet Underground" which is another addition to this track. 6. Love Me, Hate Me - What i think is a very week track. Pretty bad beet & just not a typical Ja song, also i think the song doesn't go well at all with Ja's voice. 7. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Rule is back October 28, 2000
By brian
Format:Audio CD
Where has Ja Rule been? I have no clue, all I know is that Ja Rule is back better than ever. This young talented rapper is back up in the charts with his new and 2nd album "RULE 3:36." He has officialy set a record sale with most singles sold by a Def Jam artist. Everywhere I go and everyewhere I turn I keep on hearing about Ja Rule and this album. From the malls to my school. Friends been asking me did you see the video to ja rule. I would say yup hot video and off the hook song. If you thought the hit "Holla Holla" was good you haven't heard nothin yet.
Rule is exploding with his new smash hit "Between me and you," featuring the young and beautiful Christina Milian. This work of art by Ja Rule contains 16 hot songs. This cd is mostly just Rule and his partners and close friends murder Inc. but also appearences from uprising stars like Christina Milian, Jayo Felony, Lil Mo, Vita, Dave Bing, Tah Murdah, Black child and Shade Sheist. Some of the best songs(in my opinion) are Love Me, Hate Me, 6 feet under ground, Extasy and deffinately Between me and you.
... DON'T WAIT. This cd is absolutely worth it. If you thought his first album was good go out and get this one, its amazing. Make sure you add this album to your cd collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Average Attempt July 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Ja Rule sorta switches up his style for this one from the hardcore thug with no feelings to a a sentimental like artist.
This album doesnt measure up to Venni Vetti Vicci which was a pretty good debut cd. It does have its moments though like Between Me & You, Put It On me, 6 Feet underground, Love me hate me, and One of Us. Unfortunately the rest of the album falls into mediocrity. Mostly because of the production and he didnt venture out to find different producers so the non stand out cuts all sound the same. Even the songs with Vita, a good lyrical mc, fall short. Die is good for about the first three listens and then it gets really wack althoug it does have a good beat. F. you is wack the beat is not good at all and neither is the lyrics.The skits are meaningless. Extasy feat. Jayo Felony and others has no beat. It sounds like they just took a book and banged it on the table a couple times, looped it, and called it a beat. Not a good song.Even the Damizza produced joint falls short of anything good. I Cry is a decent song but radio made it obnoxius as they played it to the bones. Rule wont die was also a badd way to end the album. Dont make this album your first priority and see if you cna find it in the used section of the store.

Ja Rule hides the truth of the ghetto from no one. He loves to tell about his hard life back in his childhood. He expresses himself by letting out his anger in some of his songs, which is why a lot of people don't like rap. He also adds in a little more of a hip-hop style into this album with "Between Me and You." His dark side is what comes out in his Intro and "Watching Me" which follow each other up real well. Ja Rule loves to tell it how it is and if you can't handle it, don't buy it. But if u like other artists such as DMX, and the rest of the Ruff Ryders this is the best album out right now for you.
