0

It’s not always a bad thing when we hit the lows in life, like American rapper Jeffrey “Ja Rule” Atkins, who was released from Upstate NY prison in February of this year, exemplifies. He claims he found God while in prison.

Ja Rule admitted in March 2011 in federal court that he failed to pay taxes on more than $3 million he earned between 2004 and 2006 while he lived in Saddle River, N.J., and must pay back every cent.

Since completing his two-year sentence for illegal gun possession amid an ongoing government battle for tax evasion, the rapper and actor is opening up about finding God behind bars.

Right now I’m on my God flow, you know what I mean?” he told HOT 97 radio personality Angie Martinez.

When I went to jail, I read the whole Bible,” he said—something that impacted his way of thinking and helped him release a lot of pent up anger toward those who had wronged him.

 I feel like unforgiveness, bitterness and resentment, it blocks the flows of God’s blessings in life,” said Ja Rule. “So, you know, I’m really in a good head space. I really want to just do what I’m doing and not focus on nothing negative at all.”

A positive aspect of his life revolves around his new faith-based film role, “I’m In Love With A Church Girl,” which hits theaters October 18. SelahAfrik brought you update on the movie which included the trailer and sneak-peek pictures.

The movie is released by RGM Films, a company co-owned by award-winning worship leader Israel Houghton and business partner Galley Molina.

This may just be the start of a new era in Ja Rule’s life and career.
