Ja Rule is Now State Property

Rapper Ja Rule turned himself in today to begin serving a two-year prison sentence for weapons possession. He will serve his sentence in a federal prison in upstate NY.

In 2007, police in New York pulled over Ja Rule’s Bentley and found a loaded .40 caliber semiautomatic pistol in the car. Ja Rule was eventually convicted for violating his probation by carrying a concealed weapon.

Ja Rule is also looking at a 3-year prison sentence for income tax evasion on more than $3 million in unreported income. Ja Rule’s lawyers hope the 35-year-old can serve both sentences simultaneously.

In the months leading up to his incarceration, Ja Rule, real name Jeffrey Atkins, recorded an album titled Renaissance, and filmed an untitled reality TV series. Despite his conviction, Ja Rule is not a bitter man:

“Laws are laws,” Ja Rule told ‘Good Day New York.’ “There’s nothing I could really do but own up to the situation. You know, I try not to regret anything I do in life, because you go through life and you do things, and you man up to them. You own them.”

    This is so wrong….

    But I wonder if he went in singing: “Put It On Me?”

    Okay. That was bad. Ise leaving now.

    Some celebrities continue to believe that because they have money, they’re above the law. These fools don’t realize that they can’t buy their way out of EVERY situation especially when it comes to taxes. The IRS is looking at rich folks with a microscope.

    On another note, I applaud Ja for at least owning up to his troubles and not trying to make a million excuses as to why he, as an individual with access to more opportunities (and cash) than the norm, could not follow the law as every other abiding citizen does.

    He has a real “grown-man” attitude about accepting the punishment for his crimes and I can accept that.

    NOTE: There should be no “Free Ja” shirts for sale, though.

    @Elove
    You do have a good point. But Wayne & Gucci & Boosie used to act like somebody did something to THEM and they were wrongly incarcerated when it was time for them to the knees slammer.

    @Elove
    How long has Gucci been locked up in his head? Or in “real time?”

    You know there are two different clocks working when it comes to Radric. Like Jeezy said: “for real, I think the boy slow.” <— he was literally talking about Gucci, no joke there.

    Based on Ja’s relevance to the music industry at his time of incarceration, the NMFF shirts may be a bit more appropiate, sad to say.

    I can still remember the day she called into a Detroit radio station & got so mad they called her Superhead while she was promoting her book.

    They went so hard on her :lol:

    What Elove tambout is a rumor that I heard awhile ago…Earl “Gator from Jungle Feva” Simmons confirmed it…

    “The block says that the hairdresser was paid a handsome sum of $20,000 to reveal what he knows. This rumor tells us this is the same hairdresser that DMX said The Rule screwed while he was high on X.”

    The end. MAD Elove branging up old chit. :rofl:
