Ja Rule is headed to court today (Feb. 9th) in NY to be officially sentenced to prison for charges stemming from a July 2007 incident, when police found a loaded handgun in the rear door of his Maybach.
Ja Rule (real name Jeffrey Atkins) pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon back in Dec. 2010.
Today, the rapper will learn when he must surrendered to authorities to begin serving a two-year sentence, which will sideline his career as he prepares to release his new album The Renaissance Project.
In January, Ja, 34, said that his album The Renaissance Project, would be released before he starts his prison sentence.
“Damn, some of u act like 18 months is forever,” Ja Rule tweeted shortly after learning of his prison term. “It aint Hard to tell who the snitches are!!!…Renaissance Project will be dropping before I go in.”
