For those who haven't read Ja Rule's autobiography Unruly: The Highs and Lows of Becoming a Man, it may come as a shock to learn that rapper lost his virginity at an incredibly young age. Speaking with TMZ, Rule elaborates on his first sexual encounter, which, as he describes it, wasn't all that pleasant.

"We grew up fast in the hood," he says. "I think I was 12. It was very disgusting and nasty. It wasn’t the way you want your first time to go. It was on a staircase. It wasn’t the best way you want your first time to go."

Rule is waiting for his luggage at LAX, and first reminds the cameraman not to get too revealing with kids nearby. "We got the babies right here, man," he says.

The New York rapper is in Los Angeles tonight for his Natural Born tour with Ashanti, which hits San Francisco and Santa Ana over the weekend before heading east for dates in Tampa, Atlanta and New Orleans. Check Ja's comments up above, with his autobiography available in paperback and hardcover via Amazon.
