Ja Rule Calls Into Radio Show From Prison On His Birthday

Filed under: Legal MattersEtc.

Ja Rule Bday

Do you know what today is? Don't be smart, we know it's Leap Day, but do you know what else happened today? Ja Rule was born! Oh yeah! And he finally got to celebrate his birthday on the day he was actually born for once!

Unfortunately, thanks to tax evasion on $3 million worth of earnings in the last decade, the rapper and actor has to celebrate from prison.

He did get one birthday treat, however. He was able to talk to the outside world when he called into “Big Poppa” Gary Spears' radio show on KISS FM.

In case you're wondering what prison is like, "It's definitely not like Shawshank Redemption," according to Ja. Instead, Ja Rule compares life in the slammer to Groundhog Day because "every day is the same day all over again."

All in all, it sounds like Mr. Rule is doing pretty well while serving his 28-month prison sentence. He's described as "a model inmate" who has not only put on about 25 pounds of muscle, but he got his GED!

We're so happy to hear he's taking advantage of his incarceration to turn a negative into a positive! Happy Birthday, Ja!

Check out the interview (below) to find out what Ja Rule has been up to in the big house and to get a better idea of what prison life is like.

Ouch! Double whammy!

Ja Rule was sentenced today to more than two years in federal prison for failing to file more than $3 million in income tax returns for his earnings between 2004 and 2006, which is on top of the two years he's spending in state prison for attempted criminal weapon possession!

The rapper said today prior to the ruling:

Ja Rule May Get MORE Jail Time! Rapper To Be Sentenced For Tax Evasion

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

ja rule to be sentenced for tax evasion

Hopefully he can continue to maintain a somewhat positive attitude about this.

To recap, back in March Ja Rule was given a June 8 start date for his two-year prison term for a NY gun charge AND he plead guilty to tax evasion in NJ, for unpaid taxes on over $3 million of income!

Last we heard from him, he had spent his last day on the outside with his family before his sentence began.

Now, a little over a month into his prison term, Ja Rule will be

ja rule spent last day with fam before going to prison

We're glad to hear he had his priorities in order for his last day on the outside.

Back in March, rapper/actor Ja Rule was given a June 8 start date for his two-year prison term for a NY gun charge AND he plead guilty to tax evasion in NJ, for unpaid taxes on over $3 million of income!

His two-year prison sentence starts today, but at least he seems to have had a nice send-off from his family yesterday. Here's what he tweeted about it:

My last day out chillin wit the Fam and the kids at the movies Xmen let's gooooo!!!

How nice! We give credit to Ja for facing the music and doing his time. Hopefully he comes out strong, Weezy-style!

Good luck, Ja! We'll see U again soon!

Ja Rule Can't Get Out Of Trouble! Pleads Guilty To $3 Million In Tax Evasion!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersLil Wayne

ja rule pleads guilty to three million dollars in tax evasion

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…

Ja Rule To Release New Album One Day Before Going To Jail!

Filed under: Music MinuteTwitter

Well, that's quite a departing gift, isn't it?

Before beginning his two-year jail sentence for gun possession, Ja Rule has promised fans that he will be releasing a new album - one day before reporting to jail!!

Over the weekend, he wrote on his Twitter account:

Breaking news………RENAISSANCE PROJECT JUNE 7th!!! Mpire Music…

Ja pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon after he was arrested during a traffic stop. Police found an unlicensed .40 caliber handgun in the backseat of his Maybach.

Last week, a judge allowed Ja to finish his album and resolve an outstanding tax issue until June 8.

This will be his first album release since 2007's The Mirror.

We bet Ja fans are happy that the judge granted him time to finish the album.

With four years of material, we have expectations for the new disc. Too bad he won't be able to celebrate the release of his album - unless he has a party of one behind bars.

Whomp whomp.

Ja Rule Going To Jail In June

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

ja rule going to jail in june

Last month, Ja Rule's sentencing date for his July 2007 New York gun charge was rescheduled to March 9.

Now, the rapper/actor has been sentenced for his two-year prison term, which will begin on June 8.

At least he'll be productive in the meanwhile. According to Ja's lawyer, he'll be finishing his new album Renaissance Project and he'll spend time taking care of "tax matters" until his prison term begins.

As we said before, we hope Ja will learn his lesson after his prison time. Carrying around loaded semi-automatic firearms is NOT acceptable.

Thoughts on Ja Rule's prison sentence? How ’bout his new album?
