Ja Rule: Headed to Prison

Posted Wednesday June 8, 2011 2:17 PM GMT

He’s got two years behind bars ahead of him, and Ja Rule began his sentence by turning himself in this morning (June 8).

The “Always on Time” rapper was arrested back in 2007 after police found a loaded semi-automatic .40 caliber handgun in his Maybach automobile. The serial number had been filed off the gun.

Rule recently shared his feelings of remorse and regret over being away from his family over the next couple of years.

"These are her (15-year-old daughter Brittany) last couple of years. She's about to graduate from high school, and she's going to college. She needs her father. My boys really need me right now too, as well as my wife. They need Daddy, and Daddy f---ed up."

Additionally, Ja Rule is also on the hook for failing to pay $3 million in taxes and could face three years in prison as well.
