Ja Rule may be a hard ass thug, but he couldn't escape the rule of law.
The rapper turned himself over to authorities to begin his two-year prison sentence in New York this afternoon, according to his manager, Seven.
Seven confirmed that Ja surrendered and has been processed.
Ja Rule spent some private time with his wife, friends and family before he was taken away for 24 months. His parting words to them: "Real life is a fantasy, f**k fame ... I'm ready for this to get over with. I am focused."
That's good at least. He was hit with a two-year sentence in 2010 when he pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. In 2007, police found a loaded semi-automatic handgun in his sports car. That'll do it.
We'll next report on Inmate 07608730Q in late 2012 or early 2013.
