Ja Rule reached a plea deal with prosecutors in a Manhattan courtroom on Monday (December 13) that will see the rapper serve two years in prison. The charges stem from a gun bust in July 2007, when both Ja Rule and Lil Wayne were arrested separately following a concert performance.
Ja Rule pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a class D felony in the second degree.
“Minor setback for a major comeback,” Ja tweeted after reaching the deal.
Ja Rule is expected to be sentenced in February, following a court appearance that same month to report his progress to the judge, reports MTV.
