(Pacific Coast News)more pics » Ja Rule (Getty) Ja Rule is going to prison for 2 years after a Manhattan courtroom decision made this morning, reports MTV.com. The rapper pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a charge which stems from a 2007 gun bust.

Ja is looking at the bright side in the sentence, however. He tweeted today: "Minor setback for a major comeback."

Ja has been keeping a low profile over the last couple years, especially in the wake of the 2007 incident in which his vehicle was pulled over after a show in NYC. Police found a loaded semi-automatic weapon under the rear door of the car, and all three passengers were charged with the same offense.
