Ja Rule heads to prison for New York gun conviction
In 2007, the 35-year-old rapper was arrested after police stopped him for speeding and found a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun in his Maybach luxury sedan.
On Tuesday, he tweeted a goodbye to his fans, writing that he planned to spend a few of his last hours of freedom seeing the new "X Men: First Class" movie with his family.
