Ja Rule back in jail

01 March 2013, 14:49

Albany, New York - US authorities say platinum-selling rapper Ja Rule is in a New York City jail with a July release date.

The 36-year-old rapper left a state prison in central New York last week after serving most of his two-year sentence for illegal gun possession and went straight into federal custody in a tax evasion case.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons says he has since moved from an upstate jail to Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Centre, which houses prisoners awaiting court dates or having short terms left on their sentences.

The bureau said on Thursday his expected release date is 28 July.

Ja Rule admits he failed to pay taxes on more than $3m earned between 2004 and 2006.

A call to his attorney hasn't been returned.
