Ja Rule may have dodged the fallout from the Fyre Festival, but he won't be able to dodge the tax man as it is being reported that the rapper owes the IRS $2 million in back taxes.

According to Bossip, the IRS issued Ja’s latest lien late last month for $443,442 for income he earned in 2016 (which could be linked to his Fyre Festival work.)

They are also reporting that on Mar. 4, the IRS issued a separate updated lien for back taxes from 2005 through 2008: $830,717 for 2005, $353,536 for 2006, $231,775 for 2007 and $172,282 for 2008 bringing the total amount owed to $2,031,753.

Ja was jailed back in 2011 for tax evasion after he did not pay taxes on his multi-million dollar home. 

Ja recently set up ICONN booking, a platform in which regular folks can securely book their favorite artists. Ashanti, Amber Rose, Blac Chyna, Funkmaster Flex and DMX are currently among the talent listed. More notable, Cardi B, Migos and Childish Gambino were all previously listed as talent but appear to have been removed from the site.
