As reported back in February, Ja Rule was released from a New York state penitentiary after serving most of a two year sentence on a gun charge. After being released on the gun charge, Ja was taken right back into custody where he would be serving out another sentence in the federal penitentiary for a tax evasion charge. Now today, Ja Rule has been released from the federal penitentiary.

According to TMZ, Ja Rule was released from the Ray Brook Federal Prison (Metropolitan Detention Center ) in New York this morning after serving a sentence for a tax evasion charge.

In March it was reported that Ja Rule was given an expected prison release date of July 28th, but he was released earlier than expected.

Although free from prison, Ja will remain on home confinement until July 28th, and  is still facing an additional year of supervised release.
