Ja Rule

I'm Real ... HUUUUGE!

5/16/2013 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Apparently Ja Rule smuggled a couple of guns out of prison ... 'cause the dude is YOKED!!!!

The rapper just posted a photo to his Instagram page ... showing off the jacked physique he built while serving out his 2-year sentence in a NY prison for attempted illegal gun possession and tax evasion.

The 37-year-old rapper was obviously hittin' the weights during his time in the big house ... and clearly the hard work paid off ...

Unlike some other prisoners we know ...

This guy looks like a loser with those horrible tats. He looks horrible! Go or the natural clean look, not the gang member tattoo look, it's much better, especially wen they are horrible tattoos, it's lie the bathroom graffiti at Venice Beach.

Ja Rule has no talent. Watch him live and you will see. Look at what he did to get himself locked up. Proves he has no brains, too.

It seems like a lot of black celebrities do time for their crimes where as people like Linsay Lohan and others get off for everything that they do. Maybe it's just me!?! I actually laugh at California's judicial system it's such a joke.

Fact is O J has money. In prison the lucky ones have access to large amounts of cash, therefore giving them the option to skip the very limited daily slop. They don't get much to eat so the inmates who eat the slop almost NEVER GAIN WEIGHT. They are however able to put on muscle mass due to the high protein slop served at the prison system but they have to work out all the time to achieve results. In OJ case, he has cash on hand to eat from the vending machine which is mostly junk food like sweets, chips, burgers, fried chicken, pies etc. From what I heard, anybody who has access to unlimited or regular funds would never choose to eat prison food. O J got fat because I'm sure he could afford not to eat the prison food. So I really don't know if that is bad or good. If any of us was in prison and could afford to avoid that daily slop, we'd probably be fat in 5 years too!
