Ja Rule to Begin Jail Bid in June

Ja Rule will have three more months of freedom before being forced to begin his two-year jail sentence on gun charges.

Earlier this morning (March 9), Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers allowed the Queens-bred rapper to stay out of jail until June 8, in order to finish his latest album, The Renaissance Project, reports the New York Post.

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

As previously reported, last December Ja pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon stemming from an arrest four years ago.

He was arrested on July 22, 2007 when police found an unlicensed.40 caliber handgun in the backseat of his Maybach, following a traffic stop. Hours before he was onstage with Lil Wayne at a concert at Manhattan’s Beacon Theater. Weezy was also picked up on the same day for possession of the same caliber pistol, after authorities boarded his tour bus upon smelling marijuana smoke emanating from the vehicle. The Young Money leader, who shares the same laywer as Rule, also eventually pleaded guilty to the attempted weapons possession charges. He served eight months in the case on good behavior and was just released on November 4, 2010.—Elan Mancini
