Ja Rule To Prison

Posted:

(CNN)--Ja Rule broke the rules again.

Earlier today (Monday) the 35-year-old rapper received a 28-month prison sentence for tax evasion.

Rule, whose birth name is Jeffrey Atkins, admitted he didn't file returns to the I-R-S from 20-04 through 20-08.

He owed the government more than one-million-dollars.

Atkins is already behind bars on an unrelated incident.

Last month, Atkins was sent to prison for attempted criminal possession of a weapon.

The prison term will run concurrent with the previous two-year sentence.

Prior to these arrests, Atkins had been working on a new album....his first since 20-04.
