Ja Rule -- I'm Going to Prison!

3/9/2011 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ja Rule doesn't just have his summer planned out ... he's got the next few years on lock -- because once June rolls around, he'll be serving a very long prison sentence ... for having a loaded gun in his car.

The judge in the case set Ja's sentencing date for June 8 -- where the rapper will get two years in the big house stemming from a traffic stop back in 2007 ... when cops found a loaded semi-automatic gun in his sports car.

As we previously reported, Ja pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon back in December -- and agreed to serve two years for the offense.

Livin' it up.

That's way too excessive for just having a gun in your car. The 2nd amendment to the US Constitution says we have a right to "bear arms." He wasn't using the gun to commit a crime.

In contrast we have Lindsay Lohan committing grand theft, assaulting a rehab worker, driving recklessly while high, and in possession of cocaine, but nothing happens to her.

The justice system moves slower than molasses. A simple case like this should not have taken almost 4 years to resolve.

Does he think he's White? I don't know why Blacks, Hispanics and Asians don't get the fact that if they are unlucky enough to end up before a judge and jury, that they are going straight to jail if found guilty. Justice is NOT BLIND in the U.S. It sees you coming from a mile away.

If only Lidsay could do this sort of time in the slammer. "Gay for the stay" wouldn't actually apply to her though...

You must be Canadian. The United States does not hand out pardons very often unlike your country which hands them out like its candy on Halloween. That's why most of the Canadian pardons are not recognized in the United States.

At least he admitted his wrong and pled guilty instead of trying to hide behind his lawyers skirt like Lindsey Lohan.

this is ridiculous!!! can't we give him 2 years of community service rather than lock him up?!? shouldn't real criminals be put in prison rather than over crowding them with these little mishaps?!?!?!

He deserves it. I never liked him. As far as I'm concerned, he's a sorry example of his genre. Just an animal that's better off in a cage. Don't bend down for that bar of soap, Ja Fule.
