Must Be Nice: Ja Rule Gets A “Stay Out Of Jail” Pass To Finish His Album

- By Bossip Staff

Ja Rule might have better lawyers than any other criminally minded rapper.

Rapper Ja Rule — who pleaded guilty to attempted gun possession and agreed to a two-year prison term back in December — now doesn’t have to turn himself in until June 8, a judge decided this morning.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers agreed to extend the rapper’s “furlough” to a total seven months over objections by assistant district attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon.

The extra time will allow the 34-year-old performer to settle a lingering federal tax matter and finish his latest album, said his lawyer, Stacey Richman.

Ja Rule — caught with a loaded, unlicensed gun back in July, 2007 — left court smiling broadly.

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

So much for that theory that the New York court system likes to teach rappers a lesson.

    Really when your career is virtually over you should just accept that and not continue to make rap records that should be sold in the comedy section. IJS

  • ShortStuff

    Is it just me or am I noticing a lot of these “old” rappers are refusing to retire or do something else with their lives??? Not to knock anyone but hip hop/rap & music in general isn’t the same as it used to be. Some of them need to sit down…literally including some of these “new/young” ones…

  • QB

    Again, who is Ja Rule?

  • ms.brilly

    I can’t knock him for trying. Why wouldn’t he? Now, if his album does well in sales I’d be surprised. But I can’t knock him for trying *shrug*

  • tommykimon

    Album!? He needs to give that up and take his but to jail.

  • Mabel

    I didn’t even know he had a pending prison sentence. Guess he needs to put the album out to keep his kids fed and pay the tax man their money. If only we could see the future.

  • Yeah i said it

    Wow didnt know he still made albums.

  • BigMike

    Would it really matter if he finished or not?

  • yt

    lmao why can’t these fools just get a registered gun?
