These ninjas just haven’t learned…you can’t cheat Uncle Sam!!

NEWARK, N.J.— Rapper and actor Ja Rule faces sentencing in federal court in New Jersey for failing to file income tax returns.

The platinum-selling rapper, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, faces up to three years in prison at his sentencing in Newark.

Atkins admitted in March that he failed to pay taxes on more than $3 million in income that he earned between 2004 and 2006 while he lived in Saddle River.

Ja Rule was sentenced in New York City last month to up to two years in prison after he pleaded guilty to attempted criminal weapon possession. The case stemmed from a gun found in his luxury sports car in July 2007.

Jeffrey, Jeffrey, Jeffery…smh
