Ja Rule was popular in the early 2000’s. He signed with Murder Inc Records and continually put out hits that topped Billboards charts. Atkins was nominated for Four Grammys, all of which were collabs, and two American Music Awards. Jeffrey also had some small acting parts on top of his musical career.

One of Ja Rules most popular songs, ‘Put it on Me’ was released from his second album titled Rule 3:36 in 2000. Vita, another Murder Inc rapper, was featured in the song. It is played in the first ‘Fast and the Furious’ movie Ja Rule was in, and also appears on ‘Double Take’. In 2001, the song reached number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs . Atkins explained that Put it On Me was inspired by an argument he had with his wife Aisha.

Ja Rule Fast and Furious

Fast and the Furious came out in 2001. Ja Rule landed the part of Edwin, a small part that he was paid $15,000 for. Previously, Atkins played David Williams in the movie Turn It Up, which was his first acting gig, and he had more screen presence as one of the main characters. Show runners offered Ja Rule $500,000 to reprise his role as Edwin, which he turned down due to ‘scheduling conflicts’. Later on it was revealed that Jeffrey did not return, because he didn’t believe returning would help his acting career. He stated that he wanted to take acting seriously. Ludacris, who replaced Ja Rule as a different character, Tej Parker, found much success in Hollywood by taking on the role.

Ja Rule insists that he’s 5’9″, and he took to Twitter to demand that Google change the height that is listed for him, which is 5’6″. Many people have speculated whether the rapper could possibly be that tall. An image of him that’s supposedly from the New York State Department of Correctional Services shows him to be about 5’8″ and that may be with shoes. We also are unaware if the photo was edited since it didn’t come directly from the source. We know Fat Joe is just under 6’0″ and has a few inches on Ja Rule, so I think it’s safe to say Jeffrey is around 5’7″ give or take a half of an inch.
