Exclusive: Ja Rule Reveals The Hardest Thing About Prison Life



Nearly six-months after being released from prison, rapper Ja Rule is opening up about his time spent behind bars.

During a sit down interview to talk about his latest film, I’m In Love With A Church Girl, the rapper said his experience is “indescribable.”

“I could explain it all day, but people still won’t understand what it’s like to eat the food. What it’s like to be told what to do on a daily basis, have a curfew, have to go to bed at 11 o’clock. Can’t see your family, can’t see your friends,” he told HipHollywood.

The rapper, who served two years for gun possession and failure to pay taxes, shard with HH that the time served was well spent. “I read a lot of books, got my mind right. Took my GED while I was in there, got that,” he explained.

“You spend a lot of time with yourself, learning about yourself, who you are. The people you have hurt on the outside, the people that are actually doing this time with you. People don’t realize you’re not doing that time alone,” the rapper said.

Ja even revealed that while he was in the state, he served time with men with high profile cases, including former Tyco International CEO, Dennis Kozlowski and art dealer, Larry Salander.

“All of these guys are really smart guys, much older than me. I picked their brains a lot and learned a lot from those guys. Those were a lot of aha moments for me,” the rapper said.

Be sure to check out Ja’s film, I’m In Love With A Church Girl in theaters now.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
