Fresh out of jail, T.I. is enjoying his newfound freedom so far after a slew of club appearances, radio interviews and his surprise concert performance with Taylor Swift. Now, it's back to business, as he is ready to reclaim the "King of the South" throne.

Tip seems to be in good spirits and optimistic about his future prospects. "I feel phenomenal," he told MTV. "But I've always been the kind of guy -- I never really get a chance to soak up the feeling of the moment because even as we speak, I'm planning for the next moment. I'm looking to the future and trying to just move forward, just moving forward. I refuse to remain stagnant."

True indeed. T.I. has been on his grind since his release from a halfway house in Atlanta nearly a week ago. The Atlanta rhyme-slinger dropped his new single, 'I'm Flexin' (featuring Big K.R.I.T.). In addition, Tip is getting ready to hit the road on a promotional jaunt for his new book, 'Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets,' which arrives in bookstores on Oct. 18. He will also perform on the BET Hip-Hop Awards, airing at 8PM EST on Oct. 11.

With all of these upcoming events, it looks like T.I. will have a phenomenal fall season. The King is back!
