JA-RULE SENTENCED TO TWO YEARS IN PRISON
Ja-Rule is about to do a bid. The Murder Inc rapper plead guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon stemming from a July 2007 stop of his luxury sports car. The night in question is now known as a sad day for hip hop, because Lil Wayne was also arrested on gun charges, after appearing with Ja Rule at the same concert. Lil Wayne was arrested with .40-caliber pistols after he headlined a concert Sunday night at the Beacon Theatre.
Ja Rule appeared on stage that same night to perform 2 songs during Lil Wayne's set and when they left both of their lives would be changed forever. Lil Wayne recently got out of jail last month after serving 8 months of a year-long sentence, while today Ja-Rule found out how long he would be in for.
According to the AP: the Pain is Love rapper said "guilty" and answered yes to a judge's questions in a low voice. "Because of your guilty plea here today, you'll have a record of having committed a violent felony. This is a very serious matter," Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers told the rapper.
Let's all send our prayers to Ja Rule and his family and hope this bid goes by fast for him. FYI fake guns are cooler than real ones.
