*Ja Rule is due in a New York courtroom today to find out when he’ll begin serving his two-year prison sentence for a 2007 gun case.
The 34-year-old rapper/actor pleaded guilty in December to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. His plea deal calls for a two-year prison term. Today, he’ll learn when he must surrender to authorities.
The charges stem from a July 2007 incident after a concert in New York, when police found a loaded handgun in the rear door of his Maybach.
In January, Ja Rule said that his album “The Renaissance Project,” would be released before he starts his prison sentence.
Born Jeffrey Atkins, the rap star was nominated for a 2002 best rap album Grammy Award for “Pain is Love.” His movie credits include the 2001 film “The Fast and the Furious” and 2003’s “Scary Movie 3.”
