Ja Rule -- Big Plans Before and During Jail Stint

6/5/2011 9:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ja Rule is just days away from turning himself in for a two-year stint behind bars, but he has a list of things he wants to do before he goes in ... and even more he wants to get done while inside.

Ja told our photog in NYC this weekend ... he's putting the finishing touches on his album and shot three music videos already. When he's inside, Ja wants to get his GED, write a book, and maybe learn an instrument. 

At least he won't be bored.

I'm beginning to wonder why young Black men are incapable of understanding that commiting a crime will most likely lead to jail. It's like they keep bumping their head on a glass window even though they know its right there. SMH

i hope he rots in there, he's just a pure s***bag, always has been, the sad thing is he makes a lot of bad noise yet people just want to throw money at him for this noise, he's constantly in trouble not because he's unfortunate, not because he's in the wrong place at the wrong time but simply because he's a natural born s***bag. Everybody around the world knows that being a celebrity (somehow) and in prison in america is a complete joke, they live better than most of us hard working decent people and the cheques keep flowing in. I sincerely hope somebody shanks this guy when he's in the big house because i guarantee you he wont learn his lesson from a 3 square meal holiday

I would have been embarrassed to say that I'm a musician who can't read music & writing a book but have no education. Maybe Ja should use Sarah Palin's publisher. She's a nit-wit who can't even read but has 2 books on the market. Ja should also read up on the local and federal laws while he's in so he can avoid being a repeat customer for the state pen.

Ja Rule is setting a good example here by trying to get his GED in prison. This guy made some of the best hip hop back in the early 2000s. Miss those good ole days!!!

Better you Americans spend your money keeping your convicts comfortable instead of blowing up innocent people.

Ja Rule could still make music in the slammer but the quality won't be that great. It's wise of him to make a bunch of music that can be released while he's away.

You have to be creative everywhere you go and that's why ja can't just sit down and do nothing in jail i'll be more advantageous if he does something pls let's support tha man

I am from Peru and unlike in America where most of Ja Rule fans left him stranded, Ja Rule's music still plays daily on all of our radio stations. This is a positive story and I wish Ja Rule all the best.

Instruments he's likely to learn in prison...the skin flute, rusty trombone, and/or the meat whistle!
