Ja Rule is expected to serve two years in prison as part of a plea deal in relation to gun charges. He and fellow rapper Lil Wayne were arrested for possessing illegal weapons in 2007. Wayne also reached a plea deal and served eight months of a one year sentence earlier this year.

Having pleaded guilty at a New York court yesterday, Ja Rule will be sentenced in February. He is expected to actually serve sixteen months of his two year sentence. Had the case gone to trial, he could have been sentenced for up to seven years.
