Rapper, 35, Ja Rule admitted to tax evasion on more than $3 million in income and pleased guilty in federal court in New Jersey.

The case was based on income earned  between 2004 and 2006.

The government agreed to dismiss two counts against him for unpaid taxes on income earned in 2007 and 2008 as part of a plea arrangement.

He faces up to one year in prison and $100,000 in fines on each count.  Sentence will be given on the tax evasion charges in June..

He has already agreed to a two-year prison term on an attempted weapon possession charge that he pleaded guilty to in December after police found a loaded gun in his luxury sports car when it was stopped for speeding after a July 2007 concert.

The rapper was nominated for a 2002 best rap album Grammy for “Pain is Love.”

He has also appeared in “The Fast and the Furious” and 2003’s “Scary Movie 3.”
