Tampa Bay Ja Rule was released from prison in upstate New York today. However, he was promptly taken to a federal prison.
The Queens rapper, born Jeffery Atkins, served out most of his two year sentence for a gun possession charge under protective custody at Mid-State Correctional Facility. However, he still has time to serve on a 28-month sentence he was handed after pleading guilty to tax evasion charges; thus he isn't coming home, just yet.
The Associated Press reports:
Ja Rule may have less than six months left and may be eligible for a halfway house, defense attorney Stacey Richman said. An order to pay $1.1 million in back taxes is one of the main reasons he wants to get back to work, she said.
"Many people are looking forward to experiencing his talent again," Richman said.
