As of this morning, Ja Rule will become a two-year guest of the New York State Department of Correctional Services.
As planned, Rule will report to Rikers Island today to begin the mandatory jail sentence he agreed to when he pleaded guilty to gun possession charges back in December. The charges came from a 2007 arrest during which NYPD officers, from the same precinct that popped Weezy on the same day, found an un-licensed 40-cal handgun in his car.
Luckily for Rule, he probably won’t be spending a whole lot of time at Rikers. He’ll be transferred to a facility in Upstate New York soon.
But that doesn’t mean he won’t be making a career comeback.
Back in March, an NY judge gave Ruleski eight months to finish his album “Pain Is Love 2″ and that’s exactly what he did. The album’s first single “Real Life Fantasy,” for which he’s already shot a video, will be out next month. Rule also shot two more videos to support the album, which will be out this summer.
As Rule told us last month, he’s not afraid of serving his time. In fact he has plans: to get his teeny tiny frame “Hollywood ready,” get his GED and prepare for his “40 Days & 40 Nights” world tour. In two years.
One thing Ja Rule isn’t this morning is scared… which may have to do with the fact that he really thinks he’s heading to protective custody and not gen pop today.
We hope that’s the case, Rule. And that you remember Martin Lawrence’s advice from “You So Crazy.”
