Ja Rule pleaded guilty to tax evasion

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Rapper and actor Ja Rule pleaded guilty to tax evasion Tuesday in a Newark, New Jersey federal courtroom.

The platinum-selling rapper admitted to not paying taxes on more than $3 million in income earned between 2004 and 2006.

As part of a plea agreement, the government has dismissed two counts against him for unpaid taxes on income earned in 2007 and 2008.

The 35-year-old performer is expected to be sentenced on the tax evasion charges in June.

He is also facing sentencing that month in New York after pleaded guilty in December to attempted weapon possession. He agreed to a two-year prison term in that case.

Ja Rule was nominated for a 2002 best rap album Grammy Award for “Pain is Love.”

It is what it is! He hasn't had a hit since 2003.
