Album Review

On his second album, Rule 3:36, Ja Rule includes a few radio-friendly rap-R&B hybrids ("Between You and Me," "Put It on Me," "I Cry"), which are then filled out with the same style of Ruff Ryder-style hardcore rap that characterized his debut album, Venni Vetti Vecci (1999). Whereas that album had featured some prominent guests from the Def Jam stable (Jay-Z, DMX, Erick Sermon, Memphis Bleek), Rule 3:36 is primarily an in-house affair, featuring the extended Murder Inc. roster. The result is an uneven album comprised of crossover-R&B singles and hardcore rap filler; even though the commercial prospects are improved, Rule 3:36 isn't any more satisfying than Venni Vetti Vecci had been.

Stop putting down this cat!

What is it with the bad review scores for this classic? This is Ja Rule's best album and one of the most surprising album I have heard in 2000. So people stop it with all the hatred for this man! The best songs on the album is Watching Me, Between me and you, 6 Feet Underground, Die, Extasy, I Cry, and One of us.

Born Jeffrey Atkins on February 29, 1976, in Queens, New York, Ja Rule established himself with Venni Vetti Vecci (1999), a hardcore debut album similar in style to the rugged thug rap then popularized by DMX and the Ruff Ryder collective.
