Rapper Ja Rule Released From New York State Prison, Now Heading To Federal Prison
The last few years have been rough for rapper Ja Rule. He's done serving his time in a state prison for weapons possession, but now he has more time to serve.
Usually when people exit a prison, it's a good thing. Not for Ja Rule, who left an Upstate New York prison today to begin a sentence in a Federal prison for a tax case. It's hard out here for a pimp - no wait, that's a different group. Whatever.
Ja served 28-months under protective custody (because he's famous) and could serve up to six more months for owing the IRS around $1.1 million. After that, he has a year of being watched by the 5-0.
