Today, Leap Day, Feb. 29, is Ja Rule's birthday. But it probably wasn't the happiest of b-days for the rapper, who's currently behind bars in upstate New York for weapons possession and tax evasion. Instead of birthday cake or ice cream or a nice meal at Mr. Chow's, Rule, along with the other inmates, is feasting on Corn Flakes, Jamaican patties and turkey stew today, according to TMZ. But things weren't always this grim for Ja, who dominated the airwaves in the late '90s and early 2000s. Read on to see Ja Rule's journey from the streets of Queens to the charts and to the big house.
