Rapper Ja Rule just got 3 more months of freedom.

In 2007, Ja, born Jeffrey Atkins, plead guilty to a gun possession charge and received a 2-year prison sentence. According to reports, Rule’s sentence was granted a delay so that he could finish working on a few projects he has in the pipeline, which include a new album and reality TV show.

Speaking to the NY Post, the “Put It On Me” rapper’s lawyer Stacy Richman confirmed:

“We want to finish the album, and there’s also a tax issue. Somebody, an accountant, had filed an incorrect form, and this is to correct what was done in the past.”

Talking about his upcoming reality show, the rapper said:

“My reality show, I like it because it’s showing a strong black family going through a tough time. And how we band together as a family and how my wife and kids, my moms and her moms, bond together during this tough time when I have to go in.”

Ja Rule is due to surrender on June 8th to start his sentence.
