This is a heartwarming story about a rapper that you don’t often see in the media.
Last week, Hip Hop star Ja Rule, 35, turned himself in to New York authorities to begin serving a 2-year prison sentence for a conviction on weapons possession charges.
The Queens MC was arrested in 2007 during a traffic stop after police searched his vehicle and found a loaded weapon. Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, was on probation at the time.
But here’s where the story gets good: according to gossip blog TMZ, Ja Rule’s family will not go hungry while he’s on lockdown.
TMZ spoke to Ja’s long suffering wife, Aisha, who stood by her man as he turned himself in last week. Aisha is a ride-or-die chick whose love has never wavered despite all the rumors about him chasing tail.
Aisha disputed the latest rumors that her husband was going off to prison while leaving his family destitute.
Aisha tells TMZ, “He did leave us well off. All of the rumors about Ja being broke are far from true.”
Aisha adds, “Ja made sure… that me and my kids wouldn’t need anything as far as income goes. He planned well before he went in.“
“We won’t be bad… even for a little bit — that was Ja’s first priority as a man who makes sure family comes first.”
The “Pain Is Love” rapper and his high school sweetheart have a daughter, Brittany, and two sons, Jeffrey, Jr. and Jordan.
