Looks like there are more “rainy days” ahead for Ja Rule.
The 35 year old embattled rapper, who is currently scheduled to begin serving a two-year sentence in June, pleaded guilty earlier this week to federal tax evasion in New Jersey, admitting that he failed to pay taxes on more than $3 million dollars earned between 2004 and 2006.
Under the terms of the plea, Rule had two additional counts for unpaid taxes from 2007 and 2008 against him dismissed. He will be sentenced on his tax evasion charges in June.
Unfortunately, that same month, the former Murder Inc. MC will begin his two-year stint in jail after pleading guilty to attempted weapon possession. The sentence stems from an arrest made back in 2007 after police discovered a loaded gun in his car following a performance with Lil Wayne at NYC’s Beacon Theatre. Ironically, Lil Wayne was arrested for the same thing on the same night, and has already served his prison sentence.
Ja has stated that he will spend his remaining free months finishing his next album The Renaissance Project.
You know somewhere right now, 50 Cent is throwing the world’s biggest going away party for your boy, SMH… Keep your head up Ja!
