Ja Rule Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion

The legal woes continue to rack up for Ja Rule.

Yesterday (March 22), the Queens bred rapper pleaded guilty to three counts of tax evasion, a charge that comes along with a maximum one-year sentence and $100,000 fine for each instance, according to the Associated Press.

The former Def Jam hitmaker accepted a plea agreement that if met, will dismiss two counts against him for unpaid taxes on income earned in 2007 and 2008. He will be sentenced on June 13.

As previously reported, the 35-year-old will also begin a two-year sentence on June 8 for a separate gun charge. Back in December Rule pleaded guilty to a July 2007 incident where he was found with a loaded gun in his car. His lawyer is trying to have him serve all of the charges concurrently.

Ja announced on his Twitter account recently that the day before he begins his bid, he will drop two new albums, The Renaissance Project and Pain is Love 2. —Nicole LoPresti
