Ja Rule agreed Monday to go to prison for two years in a gun case, becoming the second platinum-selling rapper set to do time after arrests in the aftermath of a star-studded hip-hop concert in July 2007.
His plea deal promises a two-year prison term compared to the 15-year stint he could have faced if convicted of the original gun charges. He remains free until his sentencing.
It turns out that this is the same event where Lil Wayne was arrested and convicted for weapon possession. Wayne and Ja Rule as well as several other artists are under investigation for the 2007 incident...so more arrests to come?
