Ja Rule was released from prison on Tuesday morning after serving time behind bars for tax evasion and illegal gun possession.
According to TMZ, Ja’s wife picked the rapper up at 10 a.m. from Ray Brook Federal Prison in New York. Jeffrey Atkins, the “I Cry” rapper’s legal name, will finish up his sentence on home confinement until July 28th.
Ja Rule pled guilty in 2010 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon after police found a loaded semi-automatic handgun in the rapper’s car during a 2007 traffic stop.
Rule spent nearly two years in a New York state prison for gun possession, before being transferred into federal custody in the tax evasion case. Ja was sentenced for failing to pay taxes on nearly $3 million dollars between 2004-2006.
