In his first book, rapper Ja Rule explains how hard times led to his success with a microphone...and his time in prison. Growing up in Queens, gang life and drug dealing were an irresistible lure; after dropping out of high school, he sold crack while working on his rhymes. Though recalling both his troubled youth and his years in Federal prison (each chapter ends with a handwritten letter from his time there), Ja Rule also explains how he eventually got sober and grew up; Publishers Weekly calls Unruly "a remarkable memoir and a worthy read."
