Rapper Ja Rule has been released from prison after serving out his prison sentences for attempted illegal gun possession and tax evasion.
The musician, who is Jeffrey Atkins in real life, spent almost two years inside Ray Brook federal prison in New York. He will remain under house arrest until July 28.
Ja Rule was sentenced to two years in prison when he pleaded guilty for possession of a semi-automatic gun found in his car after a concert of his in 2007.
He was also sentenced for 28 months after failing to pay more than a million dollars worth of taxes from 2004 to 2008.
He served both sentences simultaneously.
Ja Rule rose to fame in early 2000 and is well known for his collaborations with singer Ashanti on the song "Always On Time", and with Jennifer Lopez for the song "I'm Real".
