Rapper Ja Rule is set to serve two years in prison stemming from a July 2007 gun bust, when both he and rapper Lil Wayne were arrested following a concert performance.

According to MTVNews.com, the plea deal was reached this morning (Dec. 13) in a Manhattan courtroom, during when the Murder Inc. rapper plead guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a class D felony in the second degree.

If the Queens native had gone to trial and been found guilty, he could have faced up to seven years in jail. Now, he'll likely serve 16 months in prison followed by a year and a half of probation, reports MTV.
