Ja Rule was due to be released from a New York state prison this morning after serving most of a two-year sentence for illegal gun possession, but the platinum-selling rapper isn’t finished doing time: The Associated Press reports that he’ll go directly into federal custody to complete a sentence for tax evasion.

His state prison term began in June 2011 and was the result of a 2010 traffic stop in which New York City police said they found a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun in Ja Rule’s car. He admitted in federal court in March 2011 that he failed to pay taxes on more than $3 million in income between 2004-06 and was sentenced to 28 months in prison.
