Ja Rule Prison Life
February 2, 2012 by staff
Ja Rule Prison Life, The Queens-reared rapper, who’s doing time at the Mid-State Correctional Facility in upstate Oneida, N.Y., for gun possession and tax evasion, told the New York Daily News that he’s formed friendships with a pair of formerly powerful allies: Dennis Kozlowski, who was CEO of Tyco International before he his 2005 convition for authorizing $81 million worth of illegal bonuses, among other acts of white-collar crime; and Alan Hevesi, the ex-New York City Comptroller who began a 1-to-4 year sentence last April for a pay-to-play scheme wherein he took $1 million as a trade for approving pension fund investments.
“Outside, you don’t meet guys like this every day. This place is amazing,” Ja Rule, 36, said in his Daily News interview.
“It’s funny. We’re from totally different walks of life,” he observed. “But when you’re here, you’re here.”
The rapper noted that the 65-year-old Kozlowski — who once threw a $2 million bash in Sardinia that featured an ice recreation of the statue of David urinating vodka — imparted stock advice, and inspired him to sign up for college classes after earning his GED in jail.
“Koz just got out on work release. Not to say I wish he was still here,” he said. “But they’re both great, smart guys.”
As for Hevesi, whom he’s dubbed “Hevey D,” the former comptroller is “a Democrat like me, so that helps.” Ja Rule said they’ve convened together to watch Comedy Central’s The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report.
He started his two-year sentence for gun possession last June, shortly after completing his upcoming album Pain is Love 2, slated to drop Feb. 28. In July, he was sentenced to 28 months for failing to file tax returns to the IRS.
