Ja Rule Says Jail’s “Amazing”; Gets Advice From Jailed Wall St. Big Wigs
Apparently, jail is a walk in the park for Hip-Hop star Ja Rule, who is serving a two-year sentence for gun possession.
Ja Rule is being held at Mid—State Correctional Facility in Oneida, New York.
In an exclusive interview with the New York Daily News, Ja Rule said that he was networking and getting advice from some of the United States’ most infamous criminals.
The New York Daily News reveals that disgraced politician Alan Hevesi and former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski mentored the rap star, who is due to be released from prison in February of 2013.
“Outside, you don’t meet guys like this every day. This place is amazing…” Ja Rule told the Daily News. “Koz just got out on work release. Not to say I wish he was still here. But they’re both great, smart guys”
Former New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi, 72, began serving a one to four year prison sentence in April for accepting bribes and using state employees to help care for his sick wife.
Dennis Kozlowski, 65, is infamous for his time a CEO of Tyco, where he spent hundreds of millions of dollars of the company’s money improperly.
Ja, who has nicknamed Hevesi “Hevey D” and Kozlowski “Koz,” said both men have encouraged his education, while sharpening his knowledge on politics.
“Hevey’s a Democrat like me, so that helps,” Ja Rule quipped. “He told me how it’s like pulling teeth with the two parties trying to get bills passed.”
