R.U.L.E. [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
His heavyweight hip-hop rival, 50 Cent, may have knocked R&B-leaning rapper Ja Rule down a peg or two, but he's not down for the count. Rule bounces back with his sixth album, R.U.L.E., featuring the lead single "I Wonder," which boasts guest appearances by R. Kelly and Ashanti.
All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
R.U.L.E. doesn't have much going for it, but it does include a few noteworthy songs: the album's lead single, "Wonderful," an R. Kelly showcase that also boasts an Ashanti feature; the album's street single, "New York," a Cool & Dre production with a pop-gangsta edge and strong raps from Fat Joe and Jadakiss; and lastly, "Life ...

The album's remaining 60 minutes consist of standard-issue Ja Rule album filler: dreary pseudo-autobiographical raps that paint a conflicted portrait of Ja Rule, the paranoid pop-rap gangsta who believes himself to be a street martyr. Still, even if Ja Rule as an artist seems increasingly inauthentic with each passing album release, "Wonderful" is R.U.L.E.'s saving grace, playing like a trademark R. Kelly song, albeit one featuring Ja Rule and Ashanti.

    Ja surprised me with RULE

    This is a very good album. Aside from the skits and 2 songs, the album is solid. Ja lost me as a fan when he drop'd "Pain Is Love", but when he drop'd "Blood In My Eye", I knew the kid was back. He came back strong wit R.U.L.E. For those who hate on Ja, actually listen to the album, cuz I wasn't expecting it to be this good.

    Don't Waste Your Money On Trash!

    I used to be a fan back then before he started to SING. I admitted that Ja first and second album was good, but this is really trash, I can't believe I brought this album. The songs that are good is the two Hits on the radio is "New York" & "Wonderful." Anything else is just fake and nonsense. If you want to buy it be my guess, hey its not my money.
