A Win & A Loss: Ja Rule Set To Leave Prison Today…Then Head Right Back

Just the other day, I remember someone asking about rapper Ja Rule‘s location.  Seems like his current location is at the corner of Fail Avenue and You-Can’t-Win Boulevard.  According to CBS News, Ja Rule will be leaving prison today after serving most of his 2 year sentence for illegal gun possession.  That would be a win for him…however, he’s going right into federal custody as soon as his foot hits the pavement for a tax case. *The Price Is Right losing horn*

The rapper, who had been in protective custody at the Mid-State Correctional Facility because of his celebrity, has some time remaining on a 28-month sentence for tax evasion, correction officials said. His sentences were expected to run concurrently.

Ja Rule may have less than six months left and may be eligible for a halfway house, defense attorney Stacey Richman said. An order to pay $1.1 million in back taxes is one of the main reasons he wants to get back to work, she said. 

Ja Rule says that having a lot of money at a young age with no financial guidance is the reason his tax issues built up over time.  Hope that’s a lesson to all these young, fly-by-night rappers!  Gotta get that paper right!
