Ja Rule will probably think twice the next time he decides to call in to a radio show. MTV News says the incarcerated rap star has been given a seven-day work detail for calling Sirius XM’s “Ear Candy Morning Show.” Ja called into the program last Wednesday, which was also his 36th birthday. A rep for New York State’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision says Ja had a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday where it was determined that he had made an unauthorized phone call. Ja Rule’s publicist, Melanie Bonvicino, says officials at Mid-State Correctional Facility weren’t happy with a previous interview he did with the “New York Daily News,” and have since “refused all interviews for him.”
Bonvicino says she was concerned that Ja’s punishment would push back his February 2013 release, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. Ja Rule is currently serving a two-year sentence for tax evasion and gun possession charges. He released his new album, “Pain is Love 2,” last week.
