Ja Rule has been released from an upstate New York prison. However, the rapper may not be celebrating his release just yet, as he is heading straight into federal custody.
The platinum-selling rapper had served most of his two-year sentence at the Mid-State Correctional Facility for an illegal gun possession charge. However, he still has some time remaining on a 28-month prison sentence stemming from a federal tax evasion charge, reports CBS News.
His sentences reportedly ran concurrently, so Ja Rule will have to serve about another six months in federal lockup.
