Famed rapper, antifreeze drinker and J.Lo ass ogler Ja Rule has been in prison since February for tax evasion, a sentence which came directly after his time behind bars for gun possession. First he was stupid enough to carry around a semi-automatic handgun in his sports car, then he thought he’d get away with dodging taxes on $3 million of earnings from 2004-2006. Thug life!
Mr. Rule — real name Jeffrey Atkins — was released from Ray Brook Federal Prison in New York this morning. A source close to the rapper tells TMZ, his wife picked him up around 10AM and drove him straight home, where he’ll remain on home confinement until July 28th.
Ja’s spokesperson, Melanie A. Bonvicino, tells TMZ … “My client Jeffrey Atkins (aka Ja Rule) was released this morning from the Raybrook Correctional Facility in Upstate New York to serve out his federal time obligation due under the terms set forth in accordance with home confinement which were secured by his attorney Stacy Richman.”
“At present, he looks forward to spending some time with his family while he completes his memoir.”
Okay, first of all… his memoir? What the hell kind of memories does he have to right about? Hey guys, remember when he was in Fast and the Furious? Remember when he tried to beef with 50 Cent? Okay, I’m out of memories now. Second of all, what an absolute idiot, but good for him and the three people who buy that book.
