Rapper Ja Rule was sentenced to two years in prison on Monday after pleading guilty to the illegal possession of a firearm.

The 34-year-old chose to plead guilty rather than go to trial, where he would have faced up to seven years in jail if found guilty.

And according to the Associated Press the rapper, real name Jeffrey Atkins, is likely to spend 16 months in prison followed by 18 months' probation.

The charges are the result of a July 2007 incident where police found a semiautomatic .40-calibre pistol in the back seat of Ja Rule's luxury car.

    The rapper, his manager and their driver were all arrested on the scene, as was fellow rapper Lil Wayne who had performed with Ja Rule earlier that night.

    Despite his prison sentence, the singer is staying positive.

    'Minor setback for a major comeback,' he Tweeted on Monday.

    But to make matters worse, it looks like Ja Rule's Twitter account was hacked early on Tuesday, one day after he was sentenced.

    At about 11 am, suspicious messages began appearing on Rule’s account
