When Ja Rule was released from prison in May after serving two years for illegal gun possession, he came out with a new lease on life and an idea for a cookbook or so he joked during a radio appearance this week. According to TMZ, the rapper was working on a cookbook filled with microwave recipes after he learned to avoid prison food and get creative with his meals, but Ja Rule has come out to deny reports that he's working on such a project.

"So I hear I'm writing a cookbook this is news to me lmao..," Ja Rule tweeted.

"Ok so I guess I'm doing a cookbook lol. The power of media it was a joke but I am a microwave master ha!!!" he added.

The 37-year-old, who served time at Ray Brook Federal Correctional Institution in Upstate New York, gained 30 pounds and earned his GED while behind bars and is considering pursuing higher education. He announced his supposed plans for the cookbook on Geoffrey Zakarian's SiriusXM show Food Talk.

"[The food inside] is not too good but you get packages and stuff like that. You can eat pretty good. You can eat decent enough," Ja Rule told TMZ. "I ate everything. In jail, they're pretty crafty. We made lasagna, we made cheesecakes, we had lots of things. I really didn't eat prison food."

We'll stay tuned to see if anything develops from Ja's experience in fine dining behind bars.
