Ja Rule Pleads Guilty, Will Serve Jail Time

12/13/2010 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Ja Rule pled guilty to a felony weapons charge in New York today -- and the judge guaranteed he will be sentenced to two years in jail.


The charge, attempted criminal possession of a weapon, stems from a July 2007 traffic stop where police found a loaded semiautomatic gun in the rear door of his sports car.

A date for sentencing has not been set, but the judge today promised a two-year sentence. Ja is free until sentencing.

How hard is it to go through life without doing time in a jail somewhere? Truly, is it that difficult? What's wrong with these idiots? Leave the damn guns at home. If you're that worried about someone taking you out, then you obviously are either hanging with the wrong types or doing something seriously wrong. Either way it's a pathetic way to live. Wise up people.

take any income from residuals that comes in from any music to make sure he cannot maintain an income singing about the same illegal activity he will be in jail for..send a message out to the gangsta rappers and hit them in the pockets.they will soon realize its not gonna buy them a grill or they might have to sell the grill to pay for legal fines for carrying a gun.make them instead donate the money to anti gang/anti violence campaigns and make them court ordered to do a whole anti violence campaign including a CD that all profits go to families of those who were bystanders killed in violent crimes.

Another fool. I still can't understand how these guys are being busted with weapons in their PRIVATE vehicles!
I don't condone the need to carry a weapon since they are well off enough to hire armed bodyguards but one would think that with all the money they usually pay for those cars they would have least have a secret compartment installed to secure the weapons from the prying eyes and hands of law enforcement.
As for those of us rowing out the racial canoe on this,enough already!
Yes there are some black folks who have more money than you,will always have more money than you despite what you, your grandpappy down on the farm, his ilk and the bible thinks or says. Therefore don't go off trying to pass off your envy or resentment as a racial tit, its rather boring and obvious.

WTF, why did it take over three years for this piece of sh*t to get a judgement, [he was indisputably in position of firearms that were intended to kill people] and the judge STILL hasn't sentenced him. What is it, is he hooked up with Mr. Big, Money, another Californian star struck judge or all the above.

It's situations like this when you have to wonder how serious the United States is about crime and drugs. There is NO REASON that ANYBODY needs a semiautomatic gun.

What's with all these athletes and rappas with their weapons?! Don't they have any self-respect? What happened to being a law abiding citizen? Sheesh!

I seem to recall our dear president making some comments during the presidential race saying something to the effect of "white folks clinging to their GUNS and religion...".
Seems like there are some BLACK FOLKS who are also "clinging" to their guns...
