Earlier this month, rapper/actor Ja Rule was given a June 8 start date for his two-year prison term for a NY gun charge.
At the time, Ja's lawyer said he'd be finishing his new album Renaissance Project, and taking care of "tax matters" until the beginning of his prison term.
Apparently, he had some SERIOUS tax matters to take care of, because on Tuesday he plead guilty to tax evasion in NJ, for unpaid taxes on over $3 million of income!
Looks like he'll be sentenced for his tax evasion charges this June.
At least he's facing the music and getting all of his affairs in order before prison.
Who knows? Maybe his album will sell REALLY well, and then he'll come back strong in two years.
If Weezy can do it…
