After pleading guilty in New Jersey Federal Court to two counts of tax evasion in March, rapper Ja Rule (né Jeffrey Atkins) has been sentenced to two years in prison, Yahoo reports. He had not filed taxes from 2004 to 2008.

In addition, Rule was sentenced in New York City to two years prison time last month after pleading guilty to attempted criminal weapon possession charges from 2007. He reportedly will serve the sentences together.
