Queens rapper Ja Rule pleaded guilty to tax evasion tuesday, in federal court in New Jersey, He admited that he had failed to pay taxes on more than $4 million in income.
According to the Associated Press, Ja Rule born Jeffrey Atkins earned the money between 2004 and 2006 while he lived in upscale northern New Jersey. The plea deal included an agreement by prosecutors to drop two counts of unpaid taxes on income earned in 2007 and 2008. Ja Rule will be sentenced on the three remaining tax evasion charges in June and faces up to one year in prison and $100,000 in fines on each count.
Ja Rule pleaded guilty to attempted gun possession in December, stemming from a July 2007 arrest, following a concert with Lil Wayne. You have to be pretty stupid to get arrested for “attempted” gun possesion. His prison sentencing was delayed earlier this month so he could figure his shit out before he goes to jail.
