T.I. was released from an Arkansas prison this morning, according to reports. The rapper is now bound for a halfway house of some kind or home confinement.
Back in September 2010, he was sentenced to 11 months in prison after a drug possession arrest on the Sunset Strip. There may have been sizzurp involved.
In any case, it was a clear violation of his probation.
T.I. served only about a year for a federal gun conviction in 2009, but after he and wife Tiny were busted in 2010, his probation was yanked and back he went.
Chris Burke, spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, says T.I. was released at 7:29 a.m. local time and "in transit" to begin the next leg of his sentence.
T.I. checked November 1 and was originally scheduled to be released September 29, so he appears to have had about a month shaved off this leg.
