Ja Rule, who is currently serving a two-year bid for gun possession and tax evasion in Mid-State Correctional Facility in upstate New York, is trying to make the most of his down time. That, according to Rule, includes chumming it up with imprisoned former state controller Alan Hevesi and former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski.All Posts
Ja recently sat down for a jailhouse interview with New York Daily News, where he revealed the relationships he's built while in the bing. Rule said he has gotten stock tips from Kozlowski and learned about the perennial impasse in Albany from Hevesi.
“Outside, you don't meet guys like this every day. This place is amazing,” said Ja. “It's funny. We are from totally different walks of life. But when you're here, you're here,” continued the Queens rapper about his newfound friends.
A more grounded sounding Jeffery Adkins also talked about his upcoming album, Pain Is Love 2 and the circumstances under which is was made.
“I did this album in about two or three weeks, tops,” revealed the raspy voiced rapper whose seventh LP is scheduled to hit shelves February 28. “Really a special album. Back was against the wall. I really didn't have the time to do what I set out to do for the project. But it came together much better than I ever could have imagined.”
Ja Rule is scheduled to be released from prison in January 2013.
