Rapper Ja Rule back in jail over tax evasion
ALBANY, N.Y. -- U.S. authorities say platinum-selling rapper Ja Rule is in a New York City jail with a July release date.
The 36-year-old rapper left a state prison in central New York last week after serving most of his two-year sentence for illegal gun possession and went straight into federal custody in a tax evasion case.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons says he has since moved from an upstate jail to Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center, which houses prisoners awaiting court dates or having short terms left on their sentences.
The bureau said his expected release date is July 28.
Ja Rule admits he failed to pay taxes on more than US$3 million earned between 2004 and 2006.
