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.
Those numbers on his arm count down how much time is left in his 15 minutes
I thought I’d share with you this picture of Ja Rule drinking antifreeze. Don’t knock it till you try it. As cats and babies will tell you, that shit is delicious.
Today I thought we’d answer the age old question that no one is really asking: “What ever happened to Ja Rule?” I know you don’t really care, and I think that’s sad.
Remember such classics as “Always There on Time” featuring Ashanti? Remember “I’m Real” featuring Jennifer Lopez? Nope? Well, neither did I until I did a Youtube search. But it’s a good thing I did that search, or I never would have been reminded of this little gem. Helicopters for the world!
Ja popped up on the radar again this weekend while shooting the video for the Gwop Boys’ “Get Money”– album coming soon to an annoying guy in a parking lot near you who’ll accost you and pester you with dumb questions like “Do you like good music?” then get all pissed off and call you a cold ass bitch when you won’t fork over $15 for his terrible crap.
Ja looks tired and bored, mugging half-hearted gangsta poses while drinking cold duck and what is either lime Koolaid or that mysterious liquid from the inside of a glow stick. There’s absolutely no change in his expression, even when he’s surrounded by a bunch of hot video hoochies in undershirts.
It’s hard to be a gangsta.
I’m not sure whether that’s champagne in his cup or a big ole cup of disillusionment and bitterness. Hell, maybe it really is antifreeze.
