Ja Rule

Rap artist / actor Ja Rule has applauded Samuel L Jackson for criticizing rappers who try acting in movies as a second career; despite making the transition from hip-hop to films himself.

Ja  insists he's a rare exception because he has worked hard on every film, while many rappers refuse to put in the effort.

Ja; who's real name is Jeffrey Atkins, also thinks Jackson made the right decision not to work with 50 Cent on the new Jim Sheridan film ‘LOCKED & LOADED’ because he doesn''t think his rap rival has got what it takes to be a movie star.

Ja says, "He made the right choice. I call it the DMX effect. X was arguably one of hip-hop's biggest stars. I know X personally and his work ethic is crazy in the studio.

"X got into Hollywood and went on a rampage and so now every rapper that gets in after X maybe acts like DMX."

Ja insists he had a taste of exactly what it's like for stars to team up with rappers on movies when he landed a small part in ‘The Fast and The Furious’.

Ja adds, "We are already stars. We already have money. I did ‘Fast and Furious’ and nobody knew Vin Diesel at the time. There''d be herds of kids on the set and they''d be mobbing me.

"I wasn''t the star, so I could see how the tension could start to build."
