THIS WEEK IN MURDER INC.

Before beginning a two-year jail sentence for gun possession, Ja Rule will be offering fans a departing gift.

The Queen-bred rap vet took to his Twitter account over the weekend to announce that his new album—his first disc since 2007’s The Mirror—will hit shelves just one day before he goes behind bars. “Breaking news,” he wrote on Sunday (March 13), “RENAISSANCE PROJECT JUNE 7th!!! Mpire Music…”

Last December Ja pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon stemming from an arrest that occurred four years ago. Just last week a judge allowed Rule to stay out of jail until June 8, in order to finish the album as well as resolve an outstanding tax issue.

As previously reported, Ja was cuffed on July 22, 2007 when police found an unlicensed.40 caliber handgun in the backseat of his Maybach, following a traffic stop. Hours before he was onstage with Lil Wayne at a concert at Manhattan’s Beacon Theater. Weezy was also picked up on the same day for possession of the same caliber pistol. He also pled guilty to the charges and served eight months at Rikers Island of a one year sentence, on good behavior.
