He’s not always there when you calls, but he’s always on time. That’s what we think of when thinking of Ashanti and Ja Rule and it sounds like he is there for the fans, who have been demanding new music from the dynamic duo.
Ja Rule may have stopped in to our HollywoodLife Podcast to talk his new, hilarious family show on MTV, Follow the Rules, but that doesn’t mean he’s putting music behind him completely. As a matter of fact, he told us it’s still his “first love.” Well, Ja Rule & Ashanti were my first love as a power couple in music, so obviously we had to ask for an update on that.
“I’m still doing music, music’s my first love,” Ja told HollywoodLife.com when he stopped in for our podcast. “Everybody wants me and Ashanti to do a record. You know, we will. We’re going to put something together — but I can’t promise that it’s going to sound like out old stuff! It won’t. You gotta evolve.”
Alright, let’s be honest. We love the old, but we’ll totally dig the new too! So, besides music, Ja is focused on his reality show, which shows him with his wife and kids in their New Jersey house — and even his oldest daughter’s dating life!
“She’s only brought one guy home, so far, so I’m very happy about that — and he’s a good guy,” Ja told us about his daughter’s life style, adding it is tough to be Ja Rule and a father. “I don’t want my kids to look at dad as a hypocrite, so sometimes some of the things that I’m trying to tell them not to do, Dad has probably done or does. So it’s hard for me sometimes to discipline them and be stern. Thank God I have my wife to back me up — she’s done everything that I didn’t do! My kids are very respectful, good kids.”
