Ja Rule has pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in a deal that will likely send him to prison for two years, MTV News reports. The rapper was arrested in New York City on the same July 2007 night as Lil Wayne, just hours after they shared a stage at a Beacon Theatre concert. Police allegedly found a loaded semiautomatic gun in his car.
Ja Rule will be formally sentenced next February. If convicted without the plea deal, he could have faced up to seven years.
