Rapper Ja Rule returned to cable television in his favorite role: playing a Cosby-esque husband and father to his long-suffering wife and kids in MTV’s newest reality TV show, Follow the Rules.

In last night’s season debut, we learn that Ja’s eldest son, Jeffrey Jr., is a gang banger. In an earlier interview Ja Rule said he hoped his new show would encourage men to be better fathers to their children.

If this show flops in the ratings, expect to see a parade of groupies who have stories to tell about their one-night stands with the promiscuous rapper.
