Ja Rule To Serve Two Years In Prison On Gun Charges x 50 Cent Responds On Twitter

Ja Rule is due to serve two years in prison following gun charges brought against him in 2007. The Murder Inc rapper reached a plea bargain this morning and pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon (a class D felony in the second degree).

The charges originate from a 2007 incident in New York City after a Lil Wayne concert. The show, which was at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre saw Ja Rule join Lil Wayne on-stage for Wayne’s first headline show in NYC. In separate instances, both rappers’ vehicles were stopped and searched by the New York Police Department after the show.

Ja Rule was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, while Lil Wayne was charged for gun and drug charges. In March this year, Wayne turned himself in to begin his one year sentence and was released last month after serving 8 months.

Ja Rule is expected to be sentenced in February after a court appearance that same month to report his progress to the judge.

After reaching the plea deal Rule tweeted, “Minor setback for a major comeback.”

Rule’s former rap nemesis 50 Cent also took to his twitter to respond to the news, leading to the two engaging in a rather amusing twitter exchange:

50 Cent: “Damn da homie jah rule gotta do 2 years. Tell him I said don’t worry I got him when he come home. Lol. Yo word to my mother if anybody knock jah out and f**k him in jail its gonna be on.
