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.

I really don't understand the legal system....he didn't attack anyone or hurt anyone, I very much don't agree with anyone possessing a weapon especially if it is illegal...but 2 years seems excessive, especially since there are celebs out their constantly driving around under the influence actually putting lives in immediate danger...or celebs beating up their girlfriends or threatening the lives of their girlfriends...and not getting any jail time. I genuinely don't understand it so if someone can explain it to me, go right ahead.

You know it's a beautiful thing to have someone in this day in age take responsibility for his actions. Yea it does seem like a steep sentence... but most importantly he's taken responsibility. Thats props in my books

You guys dont get it do you?...he wanted to get caught...he plead guilty and asked for 2 years...it's the way Rappers today try to resuscitate their careers by showing they are "real"...put a guy on the passenger seat and run a stop light..."look ya'll I'm gangsta"...

Many have tried it but it doesn't work...getting shot is risky but better

What do these fools expect....Seriously. He (like other rappers) rap about killing each other, cars and jewlery and they don't educate people in any way. I don't feel sorry for this guy or any one that have, or in this case, had money. When this guy had money he decided to spend it all up like he was expecting the money to continue to roll in. If this guy had some legit businesses and was going around talking to kids about the do's and do not's in life I bet the judge would have taken that into consideration. But when you rap about non-sense all day this is what happens. When will these rappers wake up? The government has been trying to get this guy and his crew for years because of all the non-sense they are (or were) in to. All I got to say is don't drop the soap JaRule. It will not be until that cell door closes that this guy will realize he has fallen way off. He went from traveling around the world singing for the troops with Jennifer Lopez to a 6 by 9 cell singing to the guards. After his jail term is up will come the tax evasion charges that will take the rest of the money he has left. How do I know this? Easy...it is happening to all these stupid rappers that won't wake up and realize the music you are making is non-sense and the little bit of ghetto riches you have aren't really yours. You get paid to make your people look bad, then at the end of your career the government comes and takes back that little bit of money you made selling out your people. So in a sense, you sold your people out for free. Dummy!
