NEW YORK (AP) - Ja Rule headed to prison Tuesday for up to two years in a gun case, bidding a stoic but upbeat farewell-for-now to family and fans at a New York courthouse. The multiplatinum-selling rapper and actor - whose gravelly voice, thuggish tough talk and duets with R&B divas made him one of rap's stars in the early 2000s - signed autographs for fans on his way to be sentenced after pleading guilty in December to attempted criminal weapon possession. The case stemmed from a gun found in his luxury sports car in July 2007.
'See y'all later,' he told family and friends in the courtroom audience as he was handcuffed. Called the group, including his wife, Aisha, and his mother and mother-in-law. Dressed in a white T-shirt, gray pants and a gray hooded sweat shirt, he replied, 'Love you, too.' With that, Ja Rule, 35, was led away to start serving his sentence.
He'll briefly be in a city jail before heading to a state prison yet to be determined. Lg логотип скачать с торрента фильмы. He also faces the possibility of a federal prison sentence for failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million in income; he pleaded guilty to that in March. He faces up to three years in prison in that case, though his will push for his term - if any - to be served at the same time as his New York term.
His sentencing in the tax case had been set for June 13, but it's being postponed to give New York authorities time to arrange to transport him, said his lawyer, Stacey Richman. In the meantime, Ja Rule is headed to prison with an album on the way and, he has said, plans to write and otherwise keep busy behind bars. 'Out on my patio having my last free moment,' he tweeted before heading to court.

'I love all my fans,' he added. 'Pain is love!!!' Born Jeffrey Atkins, Ja Rule emerged as a hardcore rapper in the late 1990s but then became known for his collaborations with female pop singers, including Jennifer Lopez and Ashanti. He scored a best rap album Grammy Award nomination in 2002 with 'Pain Is Love' and has sold nearly 20 million albums during his career. He also has appeared in more than a dozen movies, including the 2001 film 'The Fast and the Furious' and 2003's 'Scary Movie 3.' He now is also the latest in a long line of prominent rappers to do time.
The list includes Lil Wayne, who was arrested separately on a gun charge the same night as Ja Rule after a show they both played at Manhattan's Beacon Theatre. Lil Wayne also pleaded guilty to attempted criminal weapon possession and spent about eight months of last year in a city jail. Police said they stopped Ja Rule's $250,000-plus Maybach sports car for speeding and found a loaded.40-caliber semiautomatic gun in a rear door. The gun wasn't registered, and he was charged under a New York law that generally bars people from having firearms outside their homes or workplaces.
'He stood up and took responsibility for everything,' Richman said. While she questioned whether sending the father of three to prison advanced gun safety, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Said the rapper's sentence 'should put all illegal gun owners in New York on notice.'
Ja Rule said Monday on Fox 5's 'Good Day New York' that 'I try not to regret anything I do in life, because you go through life and you do things, and you man up to them.' Originally from Queens, he now lives in Upper Saddle River, N.J., with his wife - whom he has known since high school - and children, 15, 11 and 9. He spent the final days before his prison term putting finishing touches on his next album, 'Pain Is Love 2,' expected out in late July or early August, manager Ron Robinson said. 'Toward the end, he had new songs that he was passionate about,' the manager said. Thinking about his impending prison term 'turned up a lot of feelings for him.' Ja Rule had some previous brushes with the law, including pleading guilty to assault for punching someone at a Toronto nightclub in 2004.
