Rapper Ja Rule is working on a new reality show, as he prepares to surrender to police in March, to start a 2 1/2 year prison sentence.
Ja, who is currently in Miami putting the finishing touches on his album Renaissance Project, is also busy filming the untitled reality series.
According to Ja Rule the series will showcase the months leading up this his jail sentence, for attempted possession of a weapon, after police found a loaded gun in his car in July of 2007.
"My reality show, I like it because it's showing a strong black family going through a tough time," Ja Rule said. "And how we band together as a family and how my wife and kids, my moms and her moms, bond together during this tough time when I have to go in."
Although the series will deal with Ja Rule's upcoming bid, the rapper said the main focus of the show was about "black love."
"It's really a good show and it shows black love in a good way," Ja Rule said.
In related news, Ja Rule's Mpire Music Group recently struck a deal with Fontana Distribution to handle the marketing, promotion and sales of his upcoming album Renaissance Project.
The rapper is also planning a sequel to his hit 2001 album Pain Is Love.
