Ja Rule to do 2 year bid


Rapper Ja Rule's future in hip-hop may be in jeopardy after he appeared in a New York court room today and pleaded guilty to a 2007 gun possession charge.

Although he will not be officially sentenced until February, Rule is expected to serve two years behind bars.

Wearing dark-blue jeans and a black sweater, the rapper said "guilty" and answered yes to a judge's questions in a low voice. "Because of your guilty plea here today, you'll have a record of having committed a violent felony. This is a very serious matter," Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers told the rapper. Ja Rule's lawyer, Stacey Richman, had no immediate comment. Specifically, the rapper admitted to a charge that involves attempting to have a loaded gun outside one's home or workplace. Ja Rule was promised two years in prison when he is sentenced in February.
