Ja Rule is all set to finish his prison sentence next year.

The “Put It On Me” rapper was once infamously known for his membership and allegiance to Murder Inc. Records, the beef with 50 Cent that ended his career, and creating some of the catchiest hooks in hip-hop.

Now, it seems that he has some different goals in mind when he’s released from the clink. Rule released a pic of him posing with producers of the upcoming film, I’m In Love With A Church Girl, which he also stars in.

But Ja Rule isn’t only gearing up for film roles, he also got his high school diploma while doing time!

We definitely wonder what Rule’s release will do for hip-hop in 2013. We all know 50 Cent is never one to pull any punches…
