Incarcerated rap star Ja Rule has made some new friends in prison — Alan Hevesi, disgraced ex-New York State Comptroller, and ex-Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski, the New York Daily News reported.His new pals “Hevey D” and “Koz” have been giving Ja Rule some pretty good advice, too.

The 36-year-old high school dropout rapper, who is currently serving a two-year prison sentence for a weapons charge and tax evasion, has been encouraged by his friends to return to school. 

Kozlowski also told Ja Rule to invest in airline stocks and study business, the report said.

Hevesi is currently serving time for corruption, while Kozlowski is in prison for fraud.
