According to TMZ, Ja Rule - Jeffrey Atkins - was given early release from Ray Brook Federal Prison on Tuesday (May 7), and will now spend the rest of his sentence under home confinement until July 28.
Atkins' wife Aisha Murray was on hand to collect him from jail, with his spokesperson telling the US website: "At present, he looks forward to spending some time with his family while he completes his memoir."
