Ja Rule was sentenced to two years in prison in a New York City courtroom on Wednesday, June 8, 2011, six months after pleading guilty to felony attempted criminal possession of a weapon. As he was hauled off in handcuffs, he told his supporters in the courtroom (and his wife, Aisha) "See y'all later."
The rapper born Jeffrey Atkins was booked into custody at a city jail as he awaits word on his final lockup destination. Ja and Lil Wayne were arrested the same night back in July 2007 on gun charges after police found a semiautomatic handgun in Ja Rule's sports car.
Mr. "Always on Time" also pleaded guilty in March to tax evasion for owing more than $3 million in New Jersey back taxes. He's also facing prison time in that case, and could get three additional years behind bars for his cash problems.
