New York — Rapper Ja Rule on Monday pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon stemming from a July 2007 stop of his luxury sports car.
Wearing dark-blue jeans and a black sweater, the rapper said “guilty” and answered “yes” in a low voice to a judge’s questions.
“Because of your guilty plea here today, you’ll have a record of having committed a violent felony. This is a very serious matter,” Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers told the rapper.
“This isn’t a good day,” Ja Rule said as he left the court. He declined to discuss the case.
