Ja Rule reached a plea deal with prosecutors in a Manhattan courtroom on today that will see the rapper serve two years in prison. The charges stem from a gun bust in July 2007, when both Ja and Lil Wayne were arrested separately following a concert performance.
The Murder Inc. star 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.
