Ja Rule Headed to Prison in June

Ja Rule only has a few months left of freedom. The New York rapper is set to report to prison in June stemming from charges from a 2007 gun case.

A judge has marked June 8 as the first day of his two-year jail term, reports the AP. The sentence comes after the 35-year-old MC pleaded guilty in December to attempted weapon possession after police pulled him over for speeding following a concert at NYC’s Beacon Theatre. Upon inspection of the vehicle, they discovered a loaded gun in the car’s rear door, leading to his arrest.

Prior to his bid, the “Put It on Me” hitmaker will spend time completing his upcoming album The Renaissance Project, as well as handling tax issues.
