HIP HOP LEGEND JA RULE TAKES OVER MTV WITH NEW SERIES "FOLLOW THE RULES" PREMIERING ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 26 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT

"Follow The Rules" is a comedic half-hour docu-series centered around Grammy(R)-nominated rapper turned actor, Ja Rule, and the hectic household that he and his wife Aisha are trying to keep under control. The couple's oldest daughter, Brittney, who is a college sophomore, is always pushing their boundaries. And with their two sons, Jeffery Jr. and Jordan, as well as Ja's mother and mother-in-law living under one roof, the house that Rule built is anything but quiet.

Meet the Rules:

Jeffrey "Ja Rule" Atkins

Since his meteoric rise to fame in 1999, four-time Grammy(R) nominated rapper, Ja Rule has sold over 45 million records worldwide. With a successful music career under his belt, he has since turned his attention to acting, appearing in more than 17 feature films following his first film appearance in The Fast and Furious franchise. But Ja's success, fame and fortune would mean nothing without the love and support of his family. With his high school sweetheart, three kids, mother and mother-in-law all living under one roof it's clear that Ja would do anything for his family... whether they like it or not.

Aisha Atkins

Aisha, Ja's high school sweetheart who he lovingly calls "Ish," has been by his side through thick and thin. Having tied the knot in 2001, Ja and Aisha continue to enjoy wedded bliss, especially when not being interrupted by one of their three beautiful children or lively mothers. Ja may be the man of the house, but Aisha has been holding down the fort for years. And she does it all with a finesse and flare that would make Martha Stewart proud.

Brittney "B-Stacks" Atkins

Brittney, a college junior at Hampton University, is the oldest of the Rule children. With her own unique sense of style and fun, Brittney is on a search for independence and self-discovery. However, being daddy's little girl, big sister and sometimes babysitter to her younger brothers means that she will never be completely on her own. And she wouldn't want it any other way.

Jeff "Lil' Rule" Atkins

Ja and Aisha's oldest son, Jeff, is the spitting image of his father, and not just because of how he looks. With the personality and attitude to match, the nickname "Lil Rule" is well earned. Jeff is an ambitious star athlete who is starting his freshman year of high school and has already launched a lifestyle brand. Always in pursuit of having a good time, Jeff keeps his family on their toes while his family tries to keep him out of trouble.

Jordan "Jordy" Atkins

Jordy may be the smallest of the Rules, but that doesn't stop him from having the biggest personality. He is a middle school student and athlete, working hard to be the best that he can be. Jordy is the first one to tell you that growing up is serious business, except when playing a good prank on his family or telling a good joke. After all, he is only a kid.

Grandma Deb & Grandma Jean

Ja's mother, Debra, and Aisha's mother, Jean, moved in with the family a few years ago to help Ja and Aisha look after the kids. But now that they are nearly grown up, Deb and Jean are content to stay right where they are. And with less responsibility on their shoulders to take care of the kids, Deb and Jean are free to explore their interests, such as wine and men.
