Ja Rule released from Prison
Ja Rule is a free man today after the rapper was released from prison.
Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins was serving a sentence for attempted illegal gun possession and tax evasion.
The rapper was given the two year sentence in 2010 when he pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon—stemming from a 2007 incident in which cops found a loaded semi-automatic handgun in his sportscar.
In July 2011, Ja Rule was also sentenced to 28 months behind bars for tax evasion, after failing to pay taxes for his earnings from 2004-2006.
