Rule 3:36 is rapper Ja Rule's second album. The album did better than expected and cemented Ja's position in the rap world. The album went 3 times platinum, and was on #1 in the Billboard 200 for one week. The album sold over 275,000 copies in the first week, and featured; hits like "Between Me And You" (U.S. #11), "Put It On Me" (U.S. #8) and "I Cry" (U.S. #40). The album also contained a song called Fuck You, which was titled Furious for radio play. The song received average airplay, and is also on the soundtrack to the Fast And The Furious (where it is titled Furious). It is considered one of the albums highlights despite it's non-radio and offensive tone. The disc is still mostly radio-friendly pop themed music unlike his other albums, which contain disses of a more dark tone.
The album still contains explicit material, and was made in a clean version which only removes profanity and drug/violent lyrics are left in. Although, some profanity like the words "hoes" and "ass" are also left in.
