Welp. This morning, according to reports, Ja Rule was released from prison this morning around 9.30 am, after serving majority of his two year sentence for illegal gun possession.
That’s not all, Jeffrey Atkins is headed straight into federal custody in a tax case. Ja has some time remaining on a 28-month sentence for tax evasion that ran concurrently. Also Ja Rule may have less than six months left and may be eligible for a halfway house, according to his defense attorney Stacey Richman. Below Ja releases a statement.
“I in no way attempted to deceive the government or do anything illegal,” he told the judge. “I was a young man who made a lot of money – I’m getting a little choked up – I didn’t know how to deal with these finances, and I didn’t have people to guide me, so I made mistakes.”
In today’s turn of events. According to Rule’s website the only guy to suffer a failing career after 50 Cent beef is expected to be released soon. Ja Rule was sentenced on June 7th 2011, and during the process he gained his High School Diploma. His “expected” release date from prison is set for February. Also Ja is expected to feature in a brand new movie entitled “I’m In Love With A Church Girl” which Ja stars in and set to be released in Spring/Summer 2013.
So who do you think he’d sign with once he’s released. Leave your comments in the c-section.

According to North Jersey, Jeffrey Bruce Atkins, better known as the rapper Ja Rule, was sentenced Monday to 28 months in prison for failing to file federal income tax returns over a five-year period. U.S. Magistrate Judge Patty Swartz said the term can run concurrent with a two-year sentence Atkins is currently serving in New York State for a gun possession offense.
“I was a young man who made a lot of money,” he said.
He choked up as he added he didn’t know how to deal with his finances and “didn’t have the best people guiding me. I made mistakes.”
“Things fell on hard times for me. Things kind of spun out of control.”
