Ja Rule Is Going To Prison

ja rule585x320

Multiplatinum-selling rapper Ja Rule is set to go to prison, but he’s leaving fans with an album on the way.

The rapper-actor – whose gravelly voice, thuggish tough talk and duets with R&B divas made him one of rap’s stars in the early 2000s – is set to be sentenced Wednesday to two years in a New York prison.

“My last day out,” he tweeted Tuesday afternoon, adding that he was spending it at the movies with his family.

Ja Rule, 35, pleaded guilty in December to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, resolving a nearly 4-year-old case.

Police said they found a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun in a rear door of his $250,000-plus Maybach sports car, which they’d said they’d stopped for speeding as he left a star-laden concert at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre on July 22, 2007. Rap superstar Lil Wayne was arrested separately after headlining the same show. He later pleaded guilty to the same charge, spending about eight months in a city jail last year.

“Laws are laws,” Ja Rule said Monday on “Good Day New York,” which airs on New York’s Fox 5 TV station. “There’s nothing I could really do but own up to the situation.”

“You know, I try not to regret anything I do in life, because you go through life and you do things, and you man up to them. You own them,” he added.

Born Jeffrey Atkins, Ja Rule emerged as a hardcore rapper in the late 1990s but then became known for his collaborations with female pop singers, including Jennifer Lopez and Ashanti. He scored a best rap album Grammy Award nomination in 2002 with “Pain Is Love.” He also has appeared in movies, including the 2001 film “The Fast and the Furious” and 2003′s “Scary Movie 3.”


He’s recently been wrapping up a new album, “Pain Is Love 2,” but he told “Good Day New York” he’s also been trying to prepare himself mentally for prison. He lives in Upper Saddle River, N.J., with his wife and three children.

Meanwhile, he also pleaded guilty in a New Jersey federal court in March to failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million in income. He faces up to three years in prison in that case, though his lawyers are expected to try to arrange for his sentences to be served at the same time.

Ja Rule had some previous brushes with the law, including pleading guilty to assault for punching someone at a Toronto nightclub in 2004. He was fined $1,200.

He recently told TMZ.com he plans to keep busy behind bars by writing a book, getting his GED and possibly taking up the guitar.

“I’m gonna try to make good of my time while I’m inside,” he said.

His expected sentence will make him the latest in a long line of rappers to do time. Hip-hop stars including Tupac Shakur, Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown, Shyne, Mystikal, Gucci Mane and T.I. have been in jail or prison for periods ranging from months to years.

Under state prison policies, Ja Rule might be able to shave up to six months off his sentence by meeting requirements for good behavior and other standards.

Cali Swag Rapper Killed In Drive-By Shooting

cali swag district 060910

UPDATE: 4:04PM

M-Bone of Cali Swag District didn’t seem to be a random drive-by shooting, according to recent reports.

KTLA reports that the rapper was shot outside of a liquor store as he sat in a parked car in Inglewood, California on LaBrea.

A red Mustang pulled along side of the vehicle that held M-Bone, real name Montae Talbert, and opened fire Sunday evening. The rapper was shot dead.

M-Bone was hit twice and pronounced dead at UCLA Medical Center.

Witnesses told authorities that the car returned to the scene after driving off, seemingly to make sure the victim was dead.

TMZ reports that the murder may have started with an e-beef on Twitter after M-Bone took up a relationship with a woman. The man that lived with the woman reportedly didn’t like the relationship and began to berate M-Bone on Twitter.

The incident may have lead to murder, but no definitive connection has been made, but M-Bone didn’t back down from the aggressors.

(ORIGINAL STORY)
Authorities Monday were trying to determine a motive for the drive-by shooting of an acclaimed hip-hop artist who was slain after leaving a recording studio in his hometown of Inglewood.

Montae M-BoneTalbert, 22, was shot twice in the head Sunday night when he stopped at a liquor store after leaving the studio, police said.
The shooter fired from a vehicle that pulled up alongside Talbert’s car, according to police. He was taken a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Known for his sinuous moves, Talbert set off a national dance craze for the hip-hop group Cali Swag District.

The attack occurred shortly after Talbert and the group had recorded a follow-up album to the platinum hit “Teach Me How to Dougie,” according to associates.

Publicist Greg Miller said the shooting appeared to be an act of random violence, but authorities said they had not established a motive for the nighttime attack.

“We haven’t gotten any information he was the target of anything,” said Lt. Steve Overly of the Inglewood Police Department.

Miller issued a statement on behalf of the family, praising Talbert as an “inspiration to his family, friends and fans” and an artist whose talents will be missed. “He was a hardworking, passionate artist and dancer that will be deeply missed,” the statement said.

Monday afternoon, about 200 fans, family members and friends gathered for a vigil in front of the liquor store where Talbert was slain. While a crowd stood on a sidewalk, two women danced to “Teach Me How to Dougie.”


The slaying prompted several other rap artists to post on the Internet about the death, including Jayceon Terrell Taylor, who is known as “The Game.”

“Can I get a moment of silence for the lil homie M-Bone R.I.P. from Cali Swag District. A kid Gunned down in the streets of Los Angeles,” Taylor said.

Until 2009, Cali Swag District was four anonymous Inglewood teenagers making R&B/hip-hop hybrids. Then the group filmed the video for

“Teach Me How to Dougie,” setting off the biggest dance fad since Soulja Boy’s “Crank Dat” in 2007.

“Teach Me How to Dougie” reached No. 6 on the Billboard rap singles charts and sold about 2 million legal downloads. Justin Bieber taught Ellen Degeneres how to Dougie, and Ryan Seacrest and Jennifer Lopez gave it a whirl on “American Idol.”

Ebony West, who produced the hit under the name Runway Star, said Talbert was an exceptionally talented street dancer and “hype man” who worked up the crowds for Cali’s live shows.

“I’ve never seen the kid not smiling,” West said in a telephone interview. “He gave the crowds something to look at.”
West said Talbert had grown up with the other Cali Swag District members– Corey “Smoove” Fowler, Cahron “JayAre” Childs and Chante “Yung” Clee.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times in January, Talbert’s musical mates called M-Bone “the craziest” member of the group.

Aggressively and colorfully tattooed, he was the most popular with the ladies, because, as he said himself, “I go after ‘em.”

Cali members said they had never been involved with gangs but couldn’t help knowing members, growing up in Inglewood in the late 1990s.

“Back then, when there were gangs it went hand in hand with drug dealing,” Fowler said. “Now drugs aren’t as big. Most of the gang beefs are over females.”

Before joining Cali Swag District, Talbert had been a promoter and a dancer. He never rapped, nor did he take dance lessons: his skills came naturally.

Though he mastered a variety of popular dance styles, his smooth swaggering performances of the Dougie, which originated in Texas, brought him to fame.

Simple in structure, the Dougie’s basic moves involve bending one’s knees and swaying from side-to-side, while twisting elbows and placing a hand on the back of the head a la 1980s rap icon Doug E. Fresh.

Jennifer Lopez Sex Tape Details!

Posted: Friday – November 6, 2009

Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband,Ojani Noa, has finally hit the market with a J-Lo sex tape. They are talking about motorcycle rides with no chonies and mirror shots of her admiring her cakes. The details are quite kinky:

A furious Jennifer Lopez is desperately battling her ex-husband to block the release of a shocking private home video that shows her…… playing sex games and engaged in a nasty fight with her mother.

The ENQUIRER viewed the bombshell, 11-hour tape that J.Lo doesn’t want anyone to see – and we have all the details. The tape includes footage of the beauty playing sexy bedroom games with first husband Ojani Noa, 35, a Cuban-born waiter she married 12 years ago. In one sizzling scene, J.Lo is looking at herself in a bathroom mirror, wearing only a bra and panties – and showing off her famous butt.

Sources say the star is embarrassed by the planned release of the image-shattering tape. The 40-year-old is the mother of 20-month-old twins with third husband Marc Anthony, 41, and projects a sexy but wholesome image. But that’s not the naughty Jennifer seen on the tape – in skimpy underwear being chased around the bedroom by Noa, who playfully spanks her. In another eye-popping shot, a clearly immodest J.Lo laughs as the camera catches her climbing onto a motorcycle wearing a short dress and no panties.

We can’t wait. SMH
