Uncle Luke Shreds Lil Wayne, Ja Rule’s Protective Custody Bid, Cam’ron Steals The Shine

For the record, I could really care less about Ja Rule being or having spent time in protective custody. I think we’re well beyond the point of using street cred to boast up record sales in the music industry but going back to my early 2000′s days, the thought of “protective custody” was up there with the word “snitch.” There have been so many rappers that have boasted about “not” serving time in protective custody and being with the general population. Something about seeing Rule being placed in “PC” brings me back. LOL.
Platinum-selling rapper Ja Rule was set to leave an upstate prison on Thursday after serving most of his two-year sentence for illegal gun possession but head straight into federal custody in a tax case. The rapper, who had been in protective custody at the Mid-State Correctional Facility because of his celebrity, has some time remaining on a 28-month sentence for tax evasion, correction officials said. His sentences were expected to run concurrently. (CBS News)
Make your own statements, I just find it funny protective custody is the norm for a lot of rappers we grew up admiring for their “gangster” images.
